West Side Story’s Ariana DeBose Cast As Kraven The Hunter Villain


It’s been revealed that West Side Story star, Ariana DeBose has been cast as the villain in Sony Pictures’ upcoming Marvel movie, Kraven The Hunter.

This news comes to us from Deadline and I think it’s perfect casting.

According to the report, DeBose will be playing Calypso in the movie, however, they do state that the source’s claims haven’t been verified yet.

That said, Deadline wouldn’t run this story without feeling confident in their source’s information.

We’re going to have to wait and see whether DeBose ends up being officially confirmed as being part of the upcoming Sony Pictures Marvel movie.

Kraven The Hunter has a pretty impressive cast already.
