Levi Miller (Pan) is set to join the cast of Sony’s upcoming Marvel film Kraven the Hunter, according to a recent report from Deadline.
Miller’s casting rounds out the cast for the film, which is set to star Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the titular role, and also includes Ariana DeBose, Russell Crowe, Alessandro Nivola, Christopher Abbott, and Fred Hechinger. It’s currently unclear who Miller will be playing the upcoming film, as Sony had no official comment.
Miller is best known for his role in 2015’s Pan, in which he starred as Peter Pan. Since then, the Australian-born actor has been consistently appearing in a variety of roles, including in 2018’s A Wrinkle in Time as Calvin O’Keefe, and, most recently, in 2021’s Streamline as Benjamin Lane.
Kraven the Hunter will feature Taylor-Johnson (Avengers: Age of Ultron) as he takes on the mantle of the titular Spider-Man villain, who is a Russian immigrant named Sergei Kravinoff. In the film, which is being billed as the next chapter of Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, he goes on a mission to prove that he is the greatest hunter in the world.
Joining Taylor-Johnson is Fred Hechinger (Fear Street Trilogy, The White Lotus) as Chameleon, Kraven’s half-brother; Oscar nominee Ariana DeBose (West Side Story) as Calypso, the occasion partner and lover of Kraven; and Russell Crowe in an undisclosed role.
Kraven the Hunter will be directed by Oscar nominee J.C. Chandor (A Most Violent Year) from a screenplay co-written by Richard Wenk (The Equalizer films), Matt Holloway, and Art Marcum. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are attached to produce the project.
The film is scheduled to be released on January 13, 2023.
