Kraven the Hunter star Aaron Taylor-Johnson is back in the superhero world. As Sony plans to continue its Spider-Man universe, the Kraven movie fans must find relief in Taylor-Johnson’s previous projects. The actor has played several superhero roles, one of which is Pietro Maximoff in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The recent Spider-Man movies, Venom: Let There Be Carnage and Morbius, received mixed reviews and were not as successful as producers hoped them to be. The 2018 Venom, though, did very well at the box office, which guaranteed the sequel.
Kraven The Hunter
Sony has announced eleven more Spider-Man films coming on its way, from the uncertain Venom 3 to the much-anticipated Across the Spider-Verse. Kraven is Sony’s latest live-action project, and the future of the Spider-Man universe may depend on the fans’ reception of the movie.
It is understandable for fans to have doubts about the upcoming film but seeing Taylor-Johnson’s roster of superhero roles may provide ease for the fans. He has been exposed to the superhero genre since he starred in Kickass back in 2010. During this time, the MCU was still establishing its legacy and only on its third movie release. Surprisingly, Kickass became an influential film in the field of pop culture.
In Aaron Taylor-Johnson We Trust
Taylor-Johnson’s career continued as he reprised his role in the Kickass sequel in 2013. Two years later, the actor found himself joining the Earth’s mightiest heroes in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Although Pietro Maximoff did not live long enough, his impact on the rest of the Avengers movies was profound. The character also did a cameo role in WandaVision.
While playing a previous superhero role cannot guarantee the success of the Kraven movie, fans can only expect that Taylor-Johnson’s acting skills can change the game. Besides, there is still hope for more Spider-Man spin-offs.
