Sony has been delaying their upcoming Spider-Man Universe movies due to COVID-19. So, people seem to have forgotten that Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters actually has other films in development besides Morbius, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, and Homecoming 3. Last year, films based on Spider-Woman and Kraven the Hunter were greenlit. Olivia Wilde is directing the Spider-Woman film, while J.C. Chandor helmed Kraven. And now, we’ve got this major report which suggests that Keanu Reeves could be Sony’s Kraven the Hunter.
A source close to The Illuminerdi states that “Sony has given an official offer to Hollywood megastar Keanu Reeves to star as Kraven the Hunter in his own Sony solo film. The project is being referred to simply as Kraven,” and not “Kraven the Hunter.” The website further described the tone of the film to be “a mashup of Man on Fire and Logan.” Well, this could prove to be a huge get for Sony.
Keanu Reeves has been given the offer, but he is yet to respond. 2019 was the year when Reeves became a real sensation on the internet. People already loved him. But since then, his fandom grew even more. He has been quite busy with The Matrix 4 in recent times. And, he is supposed to film the next two John Wick movies back-to-back later this year. We also heard that Warner Bros. is looking forward to a Constantine sequel with him. And then there are Kevin Feige’s comments which nobody can forget. The Marvel Boss said that he talks to Keanu Reeves about every other MCU role. So, Reeves certainly has a lot of options open for him. But, we’re yet to see him make a choice.
Last year, Charles Murphy reported that a Joel Kinnaman type actor was being eyed for Kraven the Hunter. While he would have been great, Keanu Reeves will certainly be the best option for Sony. Kraven is not someone who is as familiar as Venom. But with Keanu Reeves coming to the scene, Sony could certainly expect the Kraven movie to get a huge fan following.
Sony did have success with Venom, but Reeves’ casting could just boost things for Morbius and Venom 2 as well. And since Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is supposed to swing into SPUMC movies, we could expect him to take on Reeves’ Kraven sometime in the future. And who knows, Reeves might also get to venture into the MCU with the whole multiverse thing happening in Homecoming 3.
We really hope that Keanu Reeves would take this offer as he can certainly play a great Kraven. What do you guys think about it? Tell us in the comments.
