  • Outsiders changed the title to Sony Signs Alessandro Nivola To Play The Villain In Marvel's 'Kraven The Hunter'

Some younger fans may not be able to comprehend a time when movies/tv shows based on comic book characters were few and far between, and the ones that were out there, were generally held in low regard by producers/actors/fans; juvenile, silly plots, poor production value, etc. One of the main reasons was that studios that took on these characters would churn out crap, lose money and move on.  They just didn't understand, or care to understand them or the genre. You can see it with the Star Trek franchise, can definitely see it in the first Batman ('89) series. I wonder if sony is headed down that road with kraven. Do they just not care that he is the villain??

So the current Venom is an anti hero. Morbius looks like he will be the same. Now this with Kraven. And Sony wonders why they can't figure out the formula for a good Marvel movie without Marvel Studios help.

Yeah, but Venom and Morbius are already established anti-heroes in the comics, unlike Kraven
