Kraven the Vegan

Kraven the Vegan

No, I’m not joking.

Not even a little bit. Kraven the fucking Hunter is going to be an animal lover in his own movie.

“Following in the footsteps of Venom and Morbius, Sony is launching a spinoff movie for another classic Spider-Man villain: Kraven the Hunter. Due out next year, it stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson in his third (!) superhero role. But a new interview is raising some questions about the direction of this new franchise after Taylor-Johnson characterized Kraven as an “animal lover.”

Created in the 1960s, Kraven is a larger-than-life hunter of big game animals, dressing in outlandish costumes made from animal pelts. While he’s usually cast in a villainous role, his personal code of honor means he sometimes slips into antihero territory. 

Like most long-running Marvel characters, he’s evolved a lot over the decades. However a lot of fans were quick to make fun of Aaron Taylor-Johnson describing his version as an “animal lover and a protector of the natural world.” The main reaction to this news is people dunking on the idea of “Kraven the PETA member,” and predicting that the film will be a flop like Morbius.”

I think we can all give up on the idea of Sony being the saviors of pop culutre.

I hate this alternate timeline.
