Returning to the Due Date interview, Rothman likewise went over the Sony tasks he refers to as being “adjunct to the Spider-Man universe,” particularly the upcoming live-action spinoff movies Kraven the Hunter and Madame Web.

Clarkson directing,” he stated. “And then there are many Marvel characters that are standalone.” Rothman’s remarks validate that electronic cameras are still rolling on Kraven after the movie started shooting previously this year. They likewise recommend that Madame Web will itself get in production soon, as spring is nearing its end and the movie is presently slated for a summer 2023 release.

Kraven the Hunter releases in theaters on Jan. 13, 2023, followed by Madame Web on July 7, 2023.
