Kraven The Hunter: Casting Updates So Far

Kraven has always been a very complex role even in Marvel comics and it will be interesting how Aaron Taylor-Johnson plays the role. Director J.C Chandor’s vision about the character will also be important in the movie. Apart from Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Alessandro Nivola, we will also see Russell Crowe and Ariana DeBose (Calypso) in this movie.
