Kraven Madame Web Delayed

Sony’s ‘Spider-Man’ Spin-offs ‘Kraven the Hunter’ And ‘Madame Web’ Delayed

Sony has made a number of changes to its upcoming film slate, which sees delays to Spider-Man spin-off movies Kraven the Hunter and Madame Web.

Kraven the Hunter is now due to release on 6 October 2023 (over eight months later than its original 13 January release date), and will see Marvel Cinematic Universe alumnus Aaron Taylor-Johnson playing the eponymous character.

At the same time, fellow Sony Spider-Man Universe (SSU) film Madame Web has been moved to 16 February 2024 from its original 6 October release date, which is now occupied by Kraven the Hunter. Madame Web will feature Dakota Johhnson (Fifty Shades of Grey, Persuasion) in the titular role, alongside stars Sydney Sweeney (Euphoria, The White Lotus), Emma Roberts (American Horror Story, Scream Queens) and Adam Scott (Severance, Parks and Recreation). An untitled film in the SSU has also received a new date, shifting to 12 July 2024 from 7 June 2024.

Outside of the superhero realm, Sony has announced updates to its other upcoming titles as well. The animated Garfield movie, voice starring Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy, Parks and Recreation), will now open on 24 May 2024, three months later from its previously-scheduled 16 February 2024 release date, while a new Karate Kid movie will be hitting theatres on 7 June 2024. 

Alongside these updates, an untitled True Haunting film has been set for 6 January 2023. Meanwhile, Missing, the sequel to the 2018 mystery thriller Searching, will open on 24 February 2023 and star Storm Reid (Don’t Let Go, Euphoria) and Nia Long (Boyz n the Hood, Big Momma’s House).

In contrast to the SSU delays, science-fiction film 65, which comes from A Quiet Place writers Scott Beck and Bryan Woods, will see its release moved forward to 10 March 2023, after previously having been scheduled to open on 28 April 2023. The movie, which stars Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, House of Gucci), follows an astronaut who crash lands on a mysterious planet and discovers that he is not alone.
