Spider-Man spinoff Silver & Black removed from Sony's release schedule


But it ain't dead

No one ever understands what Sony is doing with its Marvel properties—and apparently, neither does Sony themselves. After scheduling a spinoff film starring Spider-Man femme fatales Black Cat and Silver Sable for February 8, 2019, titled Silver & Black, Sony has removed the project from their release schedule.

The screenplay is still being worked on, according to director Gina Prince-Bythewood (The Secret Life of Bees, Marvel's Cloak & Dagger on Freeform). The most recent draft of the screenplay came from Lindsey Beer (2019's Chaos Walking) and Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Tomb Raider). If the project pulls through, this will be the second Spider-Man spinoff from Sony after Venom releases this October, which is a movie that I still will not believe exists until I'm sitting in the theater watching the end credits. These films are probably not, though maybe (but probably not) in the same Marvel Cinematic Universe as Spider-Man: Homecoming, which was produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Sony in a special deal.

If there's a race to announce the most superhero movies that will never happen, DC and Warner Bros. are far ahead, with Fox in a distant second. Sony is far behind; come on, guys, bring back that rumored Aunt May spy movie project!

I dare you.
