A new photo from the set of Sony’s Morbius film starring Jared Leto reveals an easter egg that hints at the studios future Spider-Man spin-off based on Kraven the Hunter.
Sony Pictures is currently shooting its next standalone Marvel film, Morbius featuring Jared Leto as the titular Spider-Man villain. A photo captured on set in Manchester reveals what looks like a potential easter egg teasing the arrival of Kraven the Hunter. Check it out below!
It was announced last summer that Equalizer and Expendables 2 writer Richard Wenk is working on Sony’s standalone film centered around Kraven the Hunter. Wenk previously confirmed that his script will be an origin story of Sergei Kravinoff also known as Kraven the Hunter.
The film currently has no title, however, Wenk has said that he’s taken inspiration from the Kraven storyline Kraven’s Last Hunt. In the comic, the big game hunter dons the Spider-Man outfit and sets out to become a bigger, better version of the friendly neighborhood hero after he’s buried Peter Parker alive.
Fans were hoping to see Tom Holland’s Spider-Man make an appearance in 2018’s Venom which ended up not happening, but Wenk has plans to see Kraven and Spidey meet face-to-face in his film somehow.
The untitled Kraven project is still in the early stages of development but Wenk says that there is no rush to put out a film that isn’t completely satisfying to fans who want to see Kraven the Hunter make his first appearance on the big screen. Although, we have heard that before haven’t we?
What do you think about the set photo? Could it be an easter egg teasing Kraven the Hunter or is it none other than a cleverly named bake shop truck to be featured in Jared Leto’s Morbius movie? Sound off in the comments section below!
Directed Daniel Espinosa, Morbius; The Living Vampire stars Jared Leto, Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, and Tyrese Gibson.
Meanwhile, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is set to swing back into theaters this summer. Here’s the synopsis for Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home:

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.
Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.
I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.
Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.
Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
