KRAVEN Will Reportedly Face-Off With SPIDER-MAN Villain Chameleon In Solo Movie

An intriguing update on Sony Pictures' upcoming Kraven the Hunter solo adventure here, as Aaron Taylor-Johnson's title character will reportedly face-off against Spider-Man baddie Chameleon! Check it out.

Last month, we got the surprising news that Sony Pictures had enlisted Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Kick-Ass) to play Kraven the Hunter in the character's first big-screen outing. Now, we have an update on the movie's antagonist.

According to The Illuminerdi, the studio is currently searching for an actor in their thirties to play fellow Spider-Man villain, Chameleon. They don't know for certain if he's set to be the only baddie, but he is said to have a "significant presence in the film."

Kraven and Chameleon, aka Dmitri Smerdyakov, have teamed-up several times in the comics, but they have more in common than simply being on the Wall-Crawler's long list of foes. The master of disguise and the fearsome big game hunter were actually revealed to be half-brothers back in the day, so the characters' shared family history will most likely factor into this story in some capacity.

J.C. Chandor (Triple Frontier; A Most Violent Year) will direct Kraven from a screenplay from Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Iron Man; Uncharted) and Richard Wenk (The Equalizer; Jack Reacher: Never Go Back). The SPUMC movie is scheduled for release on January 13th, 2023.

What do you guys make of this news? Do you think Chameleon is the right antagonist for Kraven the Hunter?
