Will the Spider-Man and Kraven the Hunter Crossover Happen?

Sony’s Marvel Universe is still expanding even after the disappointing reception to its last entry, Morbius. There are several entries on the studio’s slate, and one of them is Kraven the Hunter. The upcoming film will feature Aaron-Taylor Johnson as the titular villain alongside a stellar cast that includes Russell Crowe, Ariana DeBose, Levi Miller, Fred Hechinger, and Christopher Abbott as the unnamed main villain.

Kraven’s exact plot details are still shrouded in secrecy, but Johnson confirmed that his version of the villain is “from that world of hunting” while also teasing that “he has flaws” as he learns about himself throughout the film.

Given that Kraven is a notable Spider-Man villain in the comics, fans are curious to know if the two mortal enemies will finally face off in live-action. Now, this question has been addressed by the movie’s lead star.

Will Sony Finally Show Spider-Man vs Kraven?

During the premiere of Bullet Train, Variety spoke with Kraven the Hunter actor Aaron-Taylor Johnson to address the possibility of the Marvel villain fighting Spider-Man on the big screen.

When asked if his Kraven would go up against Spider-Man anytime soon, Johnson teased the “possibilities” by pointing out that the two characters already fought in the comic.

While Johnson’s latest comment didn’t really answer the question about a future face-off between Kraven and Spider-Man, it’s possible that this has something to do with the fact that the web-slinger of Sony’s Marvel Universe has yet to be revealed. It’s understandable that the actor played coy since giving a definitive answer would reveal a massive spoiler not just for the movie but for the whole franchise.

Despite that, Johnson did mention Spider-Man in a previous interview, saying that the web-slinger is Kraven’s “number one rival.”

Still, it’s likely that Spider-Man will be referenced in the movie. After all, Kraven’s hatred toward the friendly neighborhood hero is a major factor in what fuels him to become an unstoppable force. Kraven the Hunter is set to premiere in theaters on January 13, 2023.
