MORBIUS Set Photo Teaser Another Iconic Spider Man Villain

Morbius

Filming is well underway in London on the Spider-Man spinoff film Morbius starring Jared Leto as Morbius, the Living Vampire. Over the weekend while filming in the United Kingdom a set photo came out that has a nod or Easter Egg to a very popular Spider-man Villain.

As you can see YES that is Kraven pastries on the side of the truck and can possibly be referencing Kraven the Hunter.

Now just looking at this it does not GUARANTEE that the legendary lion mane draped hunter will be appearing in the spin-off film however it could be connecting to what is going forward. In case you did not know Sony is currently developing a solo Kraven the Hunter movie as well. There is a screenwriter attached in Richard Wenk who wrote The Equalizer 2. 

Aside from being a hunter in the comics Sergei Kravinoff is also a man of wealth and means and this could be one of many business ventures.  Also given that Michael Morbius’ story is based around him being a biochemist who transforms himself into a living vampire this may also some how tie into the serum being developed that gives Kravinoff his enhanced skills and abilities.

 

A KRAVEN THE HUNTER Movie Is In The Works From Sony

For years now many Spider-Man fans have been wanting to see the wall crawler go up against one of his greatest foes in Kraven the Hunter. Now it seems that they will be getting their wish granted.

Sony Pictures has brought on  The Equalizer 2 screenwriter Richard Wenk to write the script for the solo film of one Sergei Kravenoff.

Now a Kraven film should not come as a surprise to many given that it was mentioned that Sony may have interest in doing a film based on the exotic hunter but this was during time when Silver and Black was first announced.  Silver and Black though for the moment has been shelved so there was no real expectation if the Kraven film would get off the ground. However, with the debut of Venom in theaters in a couple of months Sony must believe in what they have there and feel it is enough to move forward.

Since Sony does not have the direct rights to use Spider-Man could that mean if the Kraven movie goes forward that he would be hunting one Eddie Brock instead. Hmmmm we shall see.
