Spider-Man Spinoff 'Kraven the Hunter' Casts Russell Crowe

It's learned that Russell Crowe has joined the cast of Sony's Spider-Man spinoff Kraven the Hunter movie that will star Aaron Taylor-Johnson as the titular character.

Details are being kept under wraps but it is said Russell Crowe might be playing the father of Kraven, who in the comics is a Soviet aristocrat who fled to the United States with his family in 1917 after the Russian nobility was decimated by the February Revolution and subsequent collapse of the reign of Tsar Nicholas II.

Russell Crowe is no stranger to comic book movies as Crowe played Superman's father in DC and Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, and he has also been cast as Zeus in Marvel's Thor: Love and Thunder.

Recent rumors (see below) also claim that Sony is casting Chamelon and Calypso for the flick, as in the comics, Chamelon is Kraven's half-brother, and Calypso has been Kraven's lover.
