Remember back in December of 2017 when it was announced that Silver Sable and Black Cat would be teaming up for their own movie? They were set be brought together as an unlikely duo. But that ulitmately changed as it was decided to give the pair their own individual films. However nothing set in stone has been announced about that.
Well there may be a bit of sterling (as is Silver, get it?…) news about the pair. During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, original director Gina Prince-Bythewood was asked what she knows about the project and from what was told it seems as if there may be some rumblings leading the ladies towards Disney plus
“I really love that project, and I do hope it can still happen in some way. It keeps going through different thoughts. First, it was going to be the two of them, and then the decision was made to separate the two. Now, there’s a thought of “Hey, maybe we put it on Disney+ as a limited series,” but I loved it more as a film with the two of them. So, my hope is that one day it can still happen.”
Now here’s where it may get confusing for some. It is already known that Sony has laid out plans to bring many Spider-man related characters to the big screen. MORBIUS now being set to release in March of 2021, VENOM: LET THERE BE CARNAGE in June of 2021, there’s even talks of a Kraven the Hunter film. Sony also has their own plan for their own Spider-verse that is not that of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Which now leads to the even bigger conundrum. Marvel TV is now all under the control of Marvel Studios and why all of the upcoming MCU Disney plus shows are carrying on into the overall story. SILVER AND BLACK by that account would not fit in with the overall story and would throw things off.
So that leaves the question, if SILVER AND BLACK is brought to the small screen
Sony is clearly keeping the ball rolling on their Marvel movie projects. Today they announced two dates for untitled marvel projects. They will release “Untitled Sony/Marvel” movie on 7/10/20 and “Untitled Sony/Marvel Sequel” on 10/02/20. Now we know that the Sony Marvel film Spider-Man Far From Home is coming out in 2019 and we definitely will not get a follow up that soon, those two films are seemingly the Morbius: The Living Vampire film starring Jared Leto and Venom 2 – especially since the first one has dominated at the box office unexpectedly. This includes an incredible debut in China.
A prime summer slot like July seems like an odd choice for what many have assumed will be a horror movie in Morbius, but Leto is a big name and the studio will probably take it down the blockbuster route anyway. Now Silver & Black was supposed to be one of the films but it had been pushed back and as it seems that’s obviously not happening now. The solo outings revolving around the two heroes are probably a good few years away.
The only superhero films that we know of in 2020 are Marvel Studios Black Widow and the Eternals as well as Warner Bros. Birds Of Prey. Clearly as of now with the Fox/ Disney merger there are not any of the Fox films on the horizon, this adds two more to the list which makes for a very interesting year.
Yes, in case you forgot Sony is not just doing one Spiderman based film, they are doing several. The next one outside of the already in production solo Venom film, is that of “Silver & Black” and it’s going into production next year.
Oh yeah in case you think that Sony is stopping their Spider-verse with just these films…..they arent. Following the releases of both Venom and Silver & Black, Sony also has plans to release a film based on the Marvel Comics character Morbius the Living Vampire.
That script is currently being worked on by Matt Sazama and Burk Shapless, who wrote the story for the 2017 Power Rangers film. Silver & Black is currently slated for a release on February 8, 2019.
Are you looking forward to Silver & Black and the rest of Sony’s Spider-verse films Let us know.
