The new spin-off movie is being simply referred to as “Kraven” and will follow the tone and action of such movies as Logan and Man On Fire.
The antihero is best known in the Marvel comic books for trying to track down and claim Spider-Man as one of his big-game trophies.
However, in the past he has also teamed up with the hero to take on common enemies, especially ones that threaten the nature of wildlife or the environment.

Kraven follows Venom, which came out in 2018 and broke box office records for an October release, as it garnered a staggering $856 million.

The trailer for the Morbius movie shows the arrival of Adrian Toomes / Vulture, played by Michael Keaton.
Keaton featured in Spider-Man’s first solo movie – Spider-Man: Homecoming – meaning Morbius will begin a relationship with Peter Parker in the coming movies.
