Ariana DeBose, who was recently cast as Calypso Ezili in Sony’s Spider-Man spin-off movie Kraven the Hunter, has hinted at how the upcoming film will differ from previous Marvel titles. Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson as the title character, Kraven the Hunter will take place in the same universe as 2018’s Venom, its 2021 sequel Venom: Let There Be Carnage, and 2022’s Morbius. As of now, DeBose’s role is shrouded in mystery, with some saying she is the antagonist of the movie, while others claim she is the love interest. The movie is currently shooting in London.
Not much is known about the details of Kraven the Hunter’s plot, but the title character has been a fan-favorite villain of Spider-Man in Marvel lore since 1964. Renowned as a fierce big-game hunter, he often makes it his mission to defeat the web-slinger, believing it will solidify his status as the best in the world. As for Calypso, she first appeared in Marvel Comics in 1980. She’s a voodoo priestess who also often finds herself at odds with Spider-Man.
Kraven the Hunter are Christopher Abbott, Alessandro Nivola, Russell Crowe, Fred Hechinger, and Levi Miller, although their roles have not yet been revealed. The movie will be directed by J. C. Chandor, who helmed such acclaimed projects as Margin Call (2011) and Triple Frontier (2019). Recently, some photos from the set of Sony’s upcoming film seemed to show Taylor-Johnson filming a big action scene, so it looks like the movie will not be short on excitement.
As far as Sony’s Spider-Man film franchise is concerned, things honestly aren’t looking too great. Venom, Venom 2, and Morbius all received less than favorable reviews upon release, with the most recent one, Morbius, killing a lot of fans’ hope for the franchise’s future. However, given the director’s track record and DeBose’s words, it seems like there may be hope yet for Kraven the Hunter. This movie might just be the one to set the franchise back on track. It’s well-known that Sony Pictures has been trying to build up to a cinematic Sinister Six for years, and if Kraven is successful, it will be one step closer.
Fear The Walking Dead Season 7 Finale
Morgan Jones and Madison Clark finally meet in the Fear the Walking Dead season 7 finale trailer. A spinoff of AMC’s hit The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead stars Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo, Danay García, Maggie Grace, Garret Dillahunt, Ruben Blades, Jenna Elfman, Alexa Nisenson, Austin Amelio, and Lennie James as Morgan. Kim Dickens also appears as Madison for the first time since 2018. The Fear the Walking Dead season 7 finale, titled “Gone”, will be released on June 5.
AMC released the promo (via Daryl Dixon TV) for Fear the Walking Dead season 7, episode 16, teasing the long-awaited return of Madison. The season finale trailer features Morgan as he searches for shelter for himself and Baby Mo. The pair are attacked by burlap-sack-wearing enemies, but Morgan finds an unexpected ally in Madison, returning for the first time since her supposed death in Fear the Walking Dead season 4. The trailer shows Madison wielding a hammer and effectively bashing zombies’ heads, proving she’s back and as strong as ever.
Fans have been eager to see Dickens return to Fear the Walking Dead since James left The Walking Dead and took over as the series’ lead midway through season 4. In December 2021, AMC confirmed that Dickens would be rejoining the cast for season 7. Her return will be even more momentous as Madison and Morgan meet face-to-face and inevitably clash personalities. Dickens will also return as a series regular for Fear the Walking Dead season 8.
