Kraven is the big game hunter. Big game hunters usually hunt down big animals for meat or for commercial values or just because it serves as their recreation time. But Kraven has a major goal in life, he wishes to prove himself as the greatest hunter of all time. He’s very confident about himself but sometimes draws himself down by being overconfident. He praises his own abilities and continues to talk about them.
He has a great sense of humor and he treats his opponents as his equals till they prove them wrong because of which he is often termed an antihero and is said to be without any heroic qualities. He’s the enemy of Squirrel Girl and at times SpiderMan too. He respects SpiderMan a lot because several times he has been defeated by him.
He happens to be one of the formidable foes of SpiderMan and has gained a lot of attention through the storylines of ‘ Kraven’s last hunt’, ‘ Grim Hunt ‘, ‘ hunted ‘ etc.
He’s ranked as the 53rd great villain from the comic books. He has been seen alongside SpiderMan in many adaptations and has been in series and games as well.
Aaron Taylor – Johnson will be playing the role of Kraven in Sony’s SpiderMan film named Kraven the hunter which will be released in 2023.
Where Did We See Him Before?
This character was first seen in ‘ the amazing SpiderMan’ in 1964. He would just appear occasionally but remained a constant foe to SpiderMan. Since he’s an archenemy of SpiderMan, his role has to be acknowledged. They didn’t want to fade him away from the story and hence we do get to see him again.
Who is Kraven Actually?
Kraven is actually Sergei Kravinoff. Son of an aristocrat who left the US in 1917. Thus Kraven is a soviet immigrant. His major aim is to bring down SpiderMan and make his name known as one of the greatest hunters. He doesn’t use any weapons as such, his hands are strong enough for any purpose. And his hunting game is very fair. He consumes a serum that helps him to draw his strength and slows down the process of aging. Trained by Gregor who had gone against Ka-Zar.
Release Date of the Movie
This movie will be released on 13th January 2023. The production for the movie must have begun by 2021 ending or probably this year itself. There are chances that we might see Tom Holland here for some specific scenes. SpiderMan and Kraven’s relationship is something that cannot be put into words.
