Kraven the Hunter is all set for his on-screen debut with Aaron Taylor-Johnson spearheading the role in the next movie in Sony’s Spider-Man Universe. The character is one of the most iconic antagonists of Spider-Man in the Marvel comics and its inclusion in the live-action universe has already raised many speculations and fan theories among the audience. Recently Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s statements have ignited a spark of excitement among the fans as he claimed that the movie is going to be different than the usual trope of Marvel we are used to. According to him, this is going to be a very different affair than MCU movies.

What makes Kraven the Hunter different?

According to Aaron Taylor Johnson, Kraven the Hunter is not like the usual movies that we are accustomed to in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Residing away from the main landscape of MCU, this Sony movie is made differently.

If Taylor-Johnson’s words are to be believed, then the starkest contrast between this movie and the other MCU ventures is that this project is entirely shot on real locations whereas the MCU projects are largely set-based. As the Avengers: Age of Ultron actor believes, the locations are an integral part of a movie and its characters so they need to be real to add essence to the movie:

“Kraven being shot entirely on location is going to make all the difference. It’s going to add something really beautiful to our personal story,”  Aaron Taylor-Johnson shares. “It also sets Kraven apart from that Marvel stage look. It’s important for this character to be in the real world. It’s important for the authenticity of the story.”

Kraven the Hunter made it to the headlines earlier a few weeks ago when Aaron Taylor-Johnson said that the character is an animal lover. This sparked outrage among the fans as they couldn’t justify the theory which led Taylor-Johnson to later clarify his statement. Later Aaron Taylor-Johnson claimed that the fans misinterpreted him. Now it will be an exciting wait to watch if the movie lives up to our expectations or not.

While Aaron Taylor-Johnson spoke about Kraven the Hunter, he also hinted at more sequels of the movie coming in the future. The fans speculate that there are high chances this movie will not be limited to a single affair and going to expand and can also lead to a potential crossover.

It is also to be noted that currently, the Madame Web is in production in Sony, and also with a successful Venom movie series, there are possibilities that the studio is working towards establishing a major cinematic universe. Even though the Morbius movie was a disaster, it will be exciting how the upcoming projects turn out to be.
