Kraven The Hunter: Trailer Talk
‘Kraven the Hunter’ stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick Ass, Avengers: Age of Ultron) as the titular character and chronicles the villain’s origin story.
Because I only know Kraven from the 90’s animated ‘Spiderman’ series, I went into this trailer blind, and it looks great. Aaron Taylor-Johnson was an unexpected casting choice for the character, but he looks the part, and appears to fit comfortably into the role. And, while the trailer showed a lot, it works here since the character isn’t as well known as Spiderman or Fantastic 4 and is being introduced to a wider audience for the first time.
But the aspect that stuck out the most is its rating. The fighting choreography looks fantastic, but it’s also bloody and violent, something that a Marvel film hasn’t done since 2017’s ‘Logan’. This was the most unexpected part of the film but, from what’s in the trailer, it was a necessary addition. It also shows that some Superhero/Villain films have to be R rated to be told accurately; I truly wish ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ had been given the same treatment.
Despite knowing nothing aside from his appearances in the animated ‘Spiderman’ series, ‘Kraven the Hunter’ looks fantastic. Aaron Taylor-Johnson is an unexpected but brilliant casting choice for the titular role and its bloody direction is truly surprising but welcomed.
