With the announcement of Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Kraven the Hunter, fans are excited to see what former Quicksilver could bring on the screen. Recently, fans have been debating about the movie online and questioning if the Kraven the hunter is an outright bad guy or if he’s an anti-hero. Being a part of Sony’s Spiderverse, fans are not happy about the recent revelation that Kraven will not be as brutal as he was in the comics.
Recently, Aaron Taylor-Johnson described his character Kraven as “an animal lover and a protector of the natural world” which brought a few questions amongst the fans. Considering the history of comics, Kraven has been a complete villain and comics fans started targeting Sony and went on to keyboards to talk about it.
Kraven the Eco-Terrorist
Users on Twitter started tweeting against Kraven and showed their anger. A user said they are going to turn him into an eco-terrorist who’s not technically a hunter.
I'd bet money they're going to soften Kraven into some kind of eco terrorist who's not technically a hunter, so they can market him as an antihero. Even though what makes him a fun character is that he's a burly Russian man wearing a lion costume that really wants to kill spidey— Graham Blair (@grahamblairnett) June 21, 2022
Kraven dressed as a member of Cats
Fans also demanded Aaron should dress like a cast member from Cats.
If he doesn't wear the lion suit, then Sony are a bunch of dirty cowards. Aaron needs to be on screen, proudly dressed like a cast member from Cats.— Graham Blair (@grahamblairnett) June 21, 2022
Kraven would have been much better in MCU
A user said Kraven would have been much better in the MCU Spider-Man trilogy. They also targeted Spiderman Director Jon Watts for not portraying Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio as they expected.
People give Jon Watts and Far Form Home s**t, but at least he had the decency to portray Mysterio as A VILLAIN.— Garrett Carter (@quipquest) June 21, 2022
I guarantee you if Kraven was used as a villain in the Home trilogy, Watts wouldn't have let up on showing him for the piece of s**t he is.
Well he half right, kraven respects animals in ‘the hunt’ aspect of things but he also kills them lmao. Or maybe he’s talking about smt else concerning totems🤔— sln05 (@slater05) June 21, 2022
Some Marvel Theories
A user posted a comic storyline on how Kraven would hunt Spider-Man and bury him alive that would make you think, was Aaron wrong in his statement

Hope Kraven The Hunter does not turns out to be “Morbin Time”
Sony was also trolled for Morbius and Venom by the netizens for not giving what fans wanted.
Sony would rather keep pumping out trash like Venom and Morbius than get some good will with quality movies. Who even asked for a solo Kraven movie?— Para(cosmic) Thom (@CapablePerform1) June 21, 2022
Let us just pray that Kraven does not turn out to be like Morbius
Well we did a Venom movie without a Spider-Man. A Morbius movie without an audience. Now it's time for a Kraven movie without hunting. https://t.co/DFnf3f7Syd— Ashley Talks Comics! (@ComicGirlAshley) June 21, 2022
