A dead Avenger is coming back to the MCU, but this time he’ll play a villain

https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/dead-avenger-coming-back-mcu-162131566.html

Sony has chosen the actor who will play Kraven the Hunter: Aaron Taylor-Johnson. As you’ll recall, he already played Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron. He had one of the shortest on-screen Avengers careers because Maximoff was killed during a battle with Ultron. We were expecting a Taylor-Johnson cameo in WandaVision earlier this year, but Marvel snuck in Even Peters as Quicksilver in the TV show to confuse the audience.

The fact that Sony cast Taylor-Johnson as the well-known Spider-Man villain seems to cement the idea that he won’t be back as Quicksilver. This is disappointing because the character might be dead in the main timeline, but we’re just about to explore the multiverse, starting with No Way Home later this year.

Sony and Marvel have yet to reveal whether Kraven will appear in Spider-Man 3, but it makes sense that this particular character would be involved with hunting down Peter Parker (Tom Holland) now that the world thinks Spider-Man is a criminal. Not to mention that Sony desperately needs this MCU connection to turn its SPUMC into a success at the box office.

J.C. Chandor set to direct Sony’s upcoming Kraven the Hunter film. The movie is slated to premiere on January 13th, 2023, joining Sony’s increasing collection of movies from the Spider-Man universe.

Also included in the universe are the Venom and Morbius franchises — and Sony is already using the MCU’s Spider-Man to market them.

So how are we getting the villain spinoff before ever seeing the villain? smh
It's so crazy. Sony still owns the rights to some 300 Spider-Man villains or side characters, IIRC.
