The Sony Pictures/Spider-Man character debacle is certainly a confusing one for the ages. Peter Parker exists in the Marvel Cinematic Universe while some of his supporting characters from the comics are off doing their own thing in Sony’s Marvel universe. The Tom Hardy-starring ‘Venom’ will be released later this year and, now, it looks like Sony is placing the film based on Silver Sable and Black Cat on the fast track towards production.
Lindsey Beer (Chaos Walking, Godzilla vs. Kong) and Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Captain Marvel, Tomb Raider) have both been tapped to pen the script for Silver & Black, the project that has been in development for quite some time.
Gina Prince-Bythewood is still on board to direct Silver & Black, and she also contributed an earlier version of the script. The film was originally scheduled for an October 2018 release, but with new writers and no casting announcements, it’s a safe bet we won’t see the film until 2019 at the earliest.
