Sony Shocker: Studio Supposedly Set To Spin Off Spider-Man With Silver Sable And Black Cat, Seriously


A Silver Sable and Black Cat movie is in the works for Sony's Spider-Man universe of films, according to a report from THR. In one of those rare announcements where you've actually heard of the scriptwriter, Christopher Yost, famous for his work in comics, animation, and Thor: The Dark World is writing the script, apparently based on a previous version from the co-creator of HBO's Westworld, Lisa Joy. There's no indication at this time that the untiled film centering on Silver Sable and Black Cat, along with the recently reinvigorated Venom spinoff, will take place in the same continuity as Spider-Man: Homecoming, and thus be tied to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that's a question that could be answered soon, as the film is reportedly looking to start shooting this fall. Either way, having Yost write the Silver Sable/Black Cat script seems like a positive move toward capturing the spirit of these characters from the comics and translating them to the big screen.

Sadly for Marvel Chairman and Donald Trump advisor Ike Perlmutter, however, it looks like Sony's secret female Spider-Man spinoff film won't be Spider-Gwen after all.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
