Ariana DeBose Bags Kraven the Hunter, Here’s All About Her Role in It!

Ariana DeBose, who starred in ‘West Side Story,’ has joined the cast of ‘Kraven the Hunter,’ a new superhero action film starring Aaron Taylor Johnson as one of Spider-most Man’s dangerous foes. She’ll portray Calypso, a voodoo priestess who is Kraven’s on-again, off-again girlfriend. In the early 1980s, the figure initially debuted in ‘Spider-Man’ comics as a foe of Marvel’s young web-slinger. According to, she has mind control and wears a garment that barely covers her body in the comics.

J.C. Chandor, who previously tackled ‘All Is Lost’ and ‘Triple Frontier’, is directing ‘Kraven the Hunter’. The film, which also stars Russell Crowe, will be released theatrically on Jan. 13, 2023. Ariana DeBose is currently the favourite to win best supporting actress at this year’s Oscars, for her captivating turn as Anita in Steven Spielberg’s remake of ‘West Side Story’. Over the weekend, she took home the SAG Award for outstanding performance by a female actor in a supporting role.

“It’s taken a long time for me to feel comfortable calling myself an actor. My roots come from the dance world and the Broadway stage,” she said onstage at the SAG Awards while accepting the trophy.

Prior to her big-screen breakout in ‘West Side Story’, DeBose was a member of the original Broadway cast of ‘Hamilton’ and landed a Tony nomination for playing the lead role in ‘Summer: The Donna Summer Musical’. She later starred in Ryan Murphy’s film adaptation of ‘The Prom’ for Netflix, as well as the Apple TV Plus musical comedy series ‘Schmigadoon!’
