KRAVEN THE HUNTER Casts Its Chameleon

Kraven the Hunter has added Fred Hechinger to its cast. The Pam & Tommy and Fear Street star joins Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Russell Crowe – the latter in an unknown role – in the upcoming entry to Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters.

Meanwhile, rumour has it that Hechinger will play the Chameleon, Spider-Man's first ever adversary who debuted in the initial issue of The Amazing Spider-Man in March 1963. The supervillain is usually depicted as a master of disguises, known for his ability to impersonate virtually anybody. More relevant still is that Chameleon is also the half-brother of Kraven the Hunter.

Other Spider-Man spinoffs in development at Sony include the long-delayed Morbius, which still looks to release next month, and a Madame Web film starring Dakota Johnson. Kraven the Hunter hails from director J.C. Chandor (A Most Violent Year, Triple Frontier) and has a screenplay by Art Marcum & Matt Holloway (Iron Man, Men in Black: International) and Richard Wenk (The Equalizer).
