Two of Sony’s Spider-Man Universe films are getting new release dates as the company pushes out Kraven The Hunter and Madame Web‘s theatrical releases.

Kraven The Hunter, which was originally set to hit theaters on January 13, 2023 will now move to October 6, 2023. The Madame Web picture which was originally schedule to release on July 7, 2023, and then on October 6, 2023 will now release on February 16, 2024.

These Marvel movies sit outside the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but are part of Sony’s Marvel Universe which includes the Venom and Morbius films as well as parts of the Tom Holland Spider-Man trilogy. Yes, it is confusing.

Kraven The Hunter is being directed by J.C. Chandor from a screenplay by Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and Richard Wenk, and stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the title role alongside Ariana DeBose and Fred Hechinger. Kraven debuted in The Amazing Spider-Man #15 (August 1964) as an adversary to the superhero Spider-Man, he has since endured as one of the web-slinger’s most formidable foes. The Hunter was created by the legendary Stan Lee and Steve Ditko duo.

Madame Web is being directed by S.J. Clarkson from a screenplay by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama, and stars Dakota Johnson in the title role. Additionally, Sydney Sweeney, Celeste O’Connor, Isabela Merced, Tahar Rahim, Emma Roberts, Mike Epps, Adam Scott, and Zosia Mamet have been cast in undisclosed roles. She first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #210 (November 1980) created by writer Denny O’Neil and artist John Romita Jr. She is usually depicted as an elderly woman with myasthenia gravis, connected to a life support system resembling a spiderweb.

Wether the two Sony Spider-Man Universe films will get better reception than Venom, Venom: Let There Be Carnage and Morbius will now have to wait just a little bit longer.

2024 Fantastic Four Film Grabs Writing Team

The 2024 Fantastic Four Marvel Cinematic Universe film has found its writing team with the hiring of up-and-coming screenwriters.

The 2024 Fantastic Four Marvel Cinematic Universe film has found its writing team with the hiring of up-and-coming screenwriters Jeff Kaplan and Ian Springer.

The duo will join director Matt Shakman on the film to start forming what the movie will look like when it’s released as part of the sixth phase of the MCU slate of films. The relatively unknown writers penned the in-development film Disaster Wedding from director Max Barbakow. Deadline’s report suggests Kaplan and Springer have been working on the film for a moment, even before the hiring of Shakman as director.

Fantastic Four‘s creative team have a big challenge ahead of them as the first few attempts at the film with the super team have all fallen short. The Fantastic Four are some of the oldest and most beloved teams in Marvel Comics history and deserve a film that lives up to the teams lore. The 2005 film was dreadful and the sequel in 2007 also failing. Josh Trank, Jeremy Slater, and Simon Kinberg attempted a reboot in 2015, when 20th Century Fox still owned the rights, which was one of the worst rated comic book movies of all-time.

The MCU reboot will hit theaters as the first film in phase six on November 8, 2024 setting up what will end up being one of the greatest years in MCU history. At least that is the hope for Marvel and comic book movie fans around the world.

Worst Rated Comic Book Movies
(The Punisher / Lions Gate)

Some movies over the past number of years are not only the worst rated comic book movies of all-time, but are also some of the worst overall movies.

Movies on our list include movies which have source material based in a comic book. Some movies didn’t fit our bill, but are still bad movies. Most of the films on this list are from the big-two Marvel and DC Comics.

We base the worst rated comic book movies of all-time list on Rotten Tomatoes critic scores and some rankings include multiple movies as they tied for critic scores at the time of this list.

#18 – Rotten Tomatoes Critic Score: 29%

Worst Rated Comic Book Movies of All-Time

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice

Released: March 25, 2016

It’s been nearly two years since Superman’s (Henry Cavill) colossal battle with Zod (Michael Shannon) devastated the city of Metropolis. The loss of life and collateral damage left many feeling angry and helpless, including crime-fighting billionaire Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck). Convinced that Superman is now a threat to humanity, Batman embarks on a personal vendetta to end his reign on Earth, while the conniving Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) launches his own crusade against the Man of Steel.

You would think Batman and Superman in the same film would not let the flick end up on the worst rated comic book movies of all-time list. Guess not.

The Punisher

Released: April 16, 2014

This dark action film, based on the comic book series, follows FBI agent Frank Castle (Thomas Jane) as he transforms into the vengeful Punisher after criminals murder his family, including his wife and son. Castle is gravely injured in the attack and believed to be dead by Howard Saint (John Travolta), the crime lord who ordered the hit. Following his recovery, Castle becomes a heavily armed vigilante who will stop at nothing to exact revenge on Saint and dismantle his underworld empire.

Punisher: War Zone

Released: December 5, 2008

Frank Castle, aka The Punisher (Ray Stevenson), turns the streets of New York City red as he wages a one man war against the crime syndicate responsible for the death of his wife and two kids. Aided by his trusted sidekick, Microchip (Wayne Knight), he almost kills Billy Russoti (Dominic West) and leaves him horribly disfigured. Billy renames himself Jigsaw and with the help of his crazed brother Loony Bin Jim, recruits criminals from every corner of the city to do battle with Frank.

Both punisher films end up on the worst rated comic book movies of all-time list. Luckily the saved the character with the Netflix series.
