Kraven the Hunter Trailer: Aaron Taylor-Johnson in Bloody Spider-Man Villain Origin Story

Aaron Taylor-Johnson is out hunting big game in the first trailer for Sony's "Kraven the Hunter."

The new film suggests the genesis tale of a Marvel villain. Kraven is a murderous predator that targets Spider-Man in comic book stories.

He is also often represented as a member of the Sinister Six, a villainous squad.

"Kraven the Hunter," the newest in Sony Pictures' Marvel world — which already includes the Spidey spinoffs "Venom" and "Morbius," as well as the impending "Madame Web" — is due to hit theaters on October 6.

Ariana DeBose, Christopher Abbott, Alessandro Nivola, Russell Crowe, and Fred Hechinger co-star with Taylor-Johnson.

The teaser hints that "villains aren't born — they're made," implying that the film would investigate how Sergei Kravinoff evolves from a young child nurtured in tough surroundings into a ruthless threat.

Kraven hunts his victims with unrivaled zeal, armed with superhuman qualities such as heightened strength, speed, agility, endurance, and longevity, as well as a diverse arsenal of weaponry.

Sony originally previewed the picture at the Cinema Con film exhibitor business event in April, sending Taylor-Johnson onstage to show footage to an audience of theater owners.

Prior to its release, Marvel fans anticipated that Tom Hardy's "Venom" and Jared Leto's "Morbius" may get R classifications, but both were rated PG-13 by the MPAA. "Kraven" represents Sony's first R-rated Marvel film.

"Kraven the Hunter" is directed by J.C. Chandor and produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach. The script was written by Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, and Richard Wenk.
