Sony Delays Spider-Man Universe Films Kraven the Hunter and Madame Web


Sony has delayed the Spider-Man universe films Kraven the Hunter and Madame Web and also confirmed a 2024 release window for a new Karate Kid film.
Kraven the Hunter will now arrive in cinemas (and IMAX) on October 6, 2023, instead of January 13, though Sony didn't give a reason as to why the film was pushed to fall.
Madame Web, which was scheduled for the October 6 slot after a previous delay, will now be released on February 16, 2024. An untitled film from Sony's Marvel universe has also been shifted to July 12, 2024 from June 7.
The new Karate Kid film has been confirmed for June 7 instead, and while Sony didn't offer any specifics as to what the film would be or who's making it, it did say it's "the return of the original Karate Kid franchise".
Other new dates include the untitled True Haunting film from Screen Gems which will be released on January 6, 2023, and Missing, the next film in the Searching franchise, which arrives on February 24, 2023.
Alongside the Marvel films, Sony also shifted 65 from Columbia Pictures from April 28, 2023, to March 10, 2023, and Garfield to May 24, 2024, from February 16, 2024.

It's a little unclear when the next appearance of Tom Holland's wallcrawler will come. When Sony and Marvel made a new deal in 2019 to continue to share the character, which allowed Spider-Man: No Way Home to be made, an MCU crossover film was also said to be part of that agreement. What that crossover film might be is unclear, however.

As for future solo films, during No Way Home's press tour, producer Amy Pascal said that the thinking is that there will be at least three more Spider-Man films starring Tom Holland. It should be noted, however, that has not yet been confirmed by Sony or Marvel.

Into the Spider-Verse was a big hit for Sony, both critically and commercially, so it's no surprise that a sequel to the innovative film is in the works. But as we learned in the fall of 2021, there are actually two sequels in the works. Joaquim Dos Santos, known for his work on Justice League Unlimited, Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra, is directing the first sequel alongside Kemp Powers and Justin K. Thompson, with the screenplay by David Callaham, Phil Lord and Chris Miller. We know the film will add Japanese Spider-Man Takuya Yamashiro to the lineup, while Oscar Isaac will reprise his role as futuristic Spider-Man 2099 Miguel O'Hara (as seen in the original film's post-credits scene) and Issa Rae will voice Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman.

At CinemaCon in April 2022, Sony revealed that Across the Spider-Verse will feature 240 characters, six universes, and the largest crew for an animated film. In addition, the studio announced that the third Spider-Verse film is now called Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse (dropping the Part One and Part Two from the sequels' titles that had previously been announced). Both films' release dates were delayed in April, 2022: Across the Spider-Verse is now scheduled for release on June 2, 2023, and Beyond the Spider-Verse is expected on March 29, 2024.<b>Kraven the Hunter (October 6, 2023)</b>

Sony is also shining a spotlight on Kraven the Hunter. One of Spider-Man's oldest rogues, Kraven is a skilled hunter who sets his sights on Spider-Man after conquering all other prey in the animal kingdom. He's also the central antagonist in the seminal comic storyline Kraven's Last Hunt, which could easily serve as a source of inspiration for the movie. Richard Wenk (The Equalizer) and the team of Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Iron Man) wrote the screenplay. Triple Frontier director J.C. Chandor is directing the film, which will star Avengers: Age of Ultron's Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Kraven. Christopher Abbott, Alessandro Nivola, and Russell Crowe have also been cast in the film, which is currently set for an October 6, 2023 release, having been bumped from its prior January 13, 2023 date.<b>El Muerto (January 12, 2024)</b>

Clarkson will direct Sony's first female-led Marvel movie. Dakota Johnson will star as the title character.
