The cast of Kraven has gained another member as Russell Crowe has joined the project.

Oscar-winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator, The Loudest Voice) has joined the cast of Kraven alongside Aaron Taylor-Johnson. No word as of yet as to who he will be playing, but some reports indicate bigger cast names will be playing members of Kraven’s family.

No plot details have been revealed as of yet. With Kraven typically being portrayed as a Spider-Man villain, it’s unclear where this film might go.

It’ll be an interesting year for Crowe when it comes to comic book films. He will be appearing this July in Thor: Love and Thunder as the Greek god Zeus.

J.C. Chandor (A Most Violent Year, Margin Call) is directing Kraven from a script by Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and Richard Wenk.

Kraven is currently scheduled to hit theaters on Jan. 13, 2023.
