Levi Miller Joins The Cast Of SONY’s Kraven The Hunter Film


Despite the recent mixed reception of the Morbius film SONY seems to be pushing forward with their plans for an expanded Cinematic Universe centered around Spider-Man and other characters who originated from that series. The popular Tom Holland trilogy as well as the two Venom movies made quite a bit of money for SONY; And with their deal with Marvel ending soon they are working on multiple projects. 

One of this projects is Kraven the Hunter starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson as the titular Spider-Man villain. This isn’t Taylor-Johnson’s first Marvel related role as he played the MCU version of Quicksilver in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. Other actors like Russell Crowe, Alessandro Nivola, Christopher Abbott and Ariana DeBose are also in the film. 

Now the latest member of the cast has been announced, as child actor Levi Miller officially joins the lineup. The 19 year old Australian born actor began his career in 2010 making small appearances in films like A Heartbreak Away. In 2015 he got his “big break” as he played Peter Pan in the 2015 origin story film Pan by Warner Bros.

Levi would go on to star in the 2016 Christmas themed horror film Better Watch Out and in Disney’s 2018 adaptation of A Wrinkle In Time. Other roles include 2019’s American Exit and 2021’s Streamline.

As of right now Levi’s role is not yet known. Some speculate that he will probably be playing a younger Kraven in a flashback sequence, similar to the flashback sequence in the Morbius film.

SONY’s Spider-Man Cinematic Universe aka Spider-Verse is continuing to grow with Madame Web set to start filming later this year and a Sinister Six film planned to film shortly after that. Hopefully they don’t repeat the same mistakes they did in 2014 where they had to abandon their plans in favor of teaming up with Marvel.

Kraven the Hunter is set to release in January of 2023.
