Sony has reshuffled its films to accommodate Spider-Man spin-off films Madame Web and Kraven the Hunter.
Sony has issued a statement announcing three new films, including a new Karate Kid film, and releasing dates for some projects. This implies that the two highly anticipated Spidey spin-offs have been postponed.
Kraven the Hunter was originally scheduled to release on January 13, 2023, but it will now be released on October 6 that same year. As the classic Spider-Man villain, Aaron Taylor-Johnson plays Kraven. He has also defeated and killed Spider-Man.
Oscar-winning actress Ariana DeBose will play Calypso, Kraven's love interest, as well as Fred Hechinger as Chameleon, Kraven's half-brother, in an unknown role.
Madame Web will be released on February 16, 2024, rather than October 6, 2023, as its original release date. Johnson plays the titular clairvoyant who has psychic abilities and can see within the spider world.
Sydney Sweeney, Celeste O'Connor, Emma Roberts, and Adam Scott have all been cast in the film. All of the roles have been released.
Sony's ever-expanding Sony Spider-Man Universe includes Venom, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, and Morbius. Bad Bunny will play in El Muerto, a film about the Spider-Man-related character, while a third Venom film is also in the works.
Now available in the United Kingdom and the United States, Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
