Since Sony and Disney made a deal about Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in which Tom Holland debuted as the web-slinger in 2016, Sony decided to put more effort into building their own cinematic universe, officially called Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, in which Spider-Man still hasn’t appeared, but some other characters associated with him have.

SSU kicked off with ‘Venom’ in 2018 and since then several other movies have been released, sequel to ‘Venom,’ ‘Morbius’ and most recently released ‘Madame Web.’ The movies weren’t exactly critically acclaimed, with ‘Morbius’ and ‘Madame Web’ earning more in meme points than at the box office. But, SSU goes on, and this year alone two additional movies will be released, ‘Venom: The Last Dance’ and ‘Kraven the Hunter.’

‘Kraven the Hunter’ was supposed to be released on August 30, but its release date was pushed back to December 13, 2024. The film took over Karate Kid’s original release date. The release date for ‘Karate Kid’ has been shifted to May 30, 2025, to accommodate the premiere of the sixth and final season of ‘Cobra Kai’ on Netflix. The film will now be released after the conclusion of the series.

‘Kraven the Hunter’ stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the role of the titular Spider-Man villain. As far as Spider-Man supporting characters go, Kraven is one of the most recognizable and most brutal.

After ‘Madame Web’ massively bombed the box office, we have to say that SSU’s future is bleak as hell, ‘Kraven the Hunter’ has a unique opportunity to turn this upside down and to set a new standard for Sony’s superhero movies, just like ‘Venom’ did back when the first installment was released.

Recently, the release date for ‘Venom: The Last Dance’ was also changed not to clash with presidentail election.
