In addition, now we have the first official trailer. The trailer shows Kraven the Hunter sitting on his throne and wearing a lion mane. Moreover, Russell Crowe portrays his father.
The trailer shows the basic plotline of the upcoming movie. It shows the first hunt in which Kraven’s dad takes him along. While it’s not entirely significant, this hunt will shape the mind of Marvel’s Kraven.
