According to The Illuminerdi, Kraven the Hunter villain Calypso is going to appear in the Sony led movie, and it might be Jodie Turner-Smith. Kraven the Hunter looks set to star Aaron Taylor-Johnson as the lead character, and earlier reports had also indicated that Sony wanted Chameleon in the movie as well. Chameleon and Kraven are half-brothers in the comics, but take different paths and ultimately come up against one another. Calyspso though, is a former love interest of Kraven in the comics, but again, considered a villain.
The outlet says they have learned Calypso is in the movie and the actor Sony are looking at is Jodie Turner-Smith (Without Remorse). Now if you have ever read any article from me, you probably know what I think of he fMCU. By that I mean whatever Sony are trying to do to cash in on MCU popularity whilst avoiding the Kevin Feige quality control aspect of the real MCU. I am therefore hardly excited by this news, nor so far the choice of actor.
I’m really not sure what to think of Jodie Turner-Smith yet personally. The only movie I have seen her in was Without Remorse and that is a bad, bad, badddddd movie. I therefore feel like I cannot judge the actress as the film was so bad (almost couldn’t get through it). For example, I think Michael B. Jordan is a great actor, but he stunk the place up in Without Remorse as well. The Amazon version of the Jack Ryan universe is just in a really bad state right now, and I won’t be sticking with it.
Question is, will I ever see Kraven the Hunter? Honestly, unless it gets rave reviews from people I trust I won’t bother. I have zero intention of ever watching Venom: Let There Be Carnage either, and may to do the same with Morbius and then Kraven.
What do you think of Kraven the Hunter villain Calypso? Would Jodie Turner-Smith be good for the role, or like me do you just avoid the fMCU? Sound off below.
