Keanu Reeves has reportedly passed on playing Kraven the Hunter in a solo Spider-Man spinoff movie from Sony.
Sony is continuing to flesh out its list of Spider-Man villains on the big-screen following Venom and next year’s Morbius, with the studio looking to produce a solo movie for Kraven the Hunter. But after an earlier report revealed Keanu Reeves had been approached by Sony to play Sergei Kravinoff on the big screen, he apparently passed on the role months ago. It’s easy to see why Keanu Reeves was approached since he visually fits a the typical look associated with Kraven – but there are definitely better Marvel roles for the John Wick star.
Skyler Shuler of The DisInsider revealed that Keanu Reeves declined Sony’s offer to play Kraven the Hunter in a solo movie which JC Candor was in talks to helm. Marvel fans have suggested Reeves for roles like Ghost Rider and Wolverine in the past, and Kevin Feige even revealed that Marvel Studios frequently approaches the star regarding a number of roles. But it seems like the hunt continues for the live-action Kraven.
Was just told Keanu Reeves was really approached for Kraven but passed months ago.
