Sony’s Spider-Man Adjacent ‘Silver and Black’ Has a Release Date

Sony’s ongoing attempt to build a Spider-Man-adjacent shared universe, which isn’t connected to the MCU but somehow connected to the MCU’s Spider-Man, continues forward. One of the films in the pipe for this bizarre experiment is Silver and Black, a movie focused on Silver Sable and Black Cat.

What we knew already is that film has a script by Chris Yost and is being directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood. What we’ve learned in the last few days is that Sony has stamped a nice big release date on the film: February 8, 2019.

While this may seem more out of left field than the Venom movie, these are at least two characters whose origins aren’t heavily dependent on Spider-Man existing. That Venom movie is coming out just four months beforehand though, so it just feels like Sony’s trying to cram as much as they can at us at once.

I guess we’ll see if any of it sticks to the wall.

Sony’s Silver Sable and Black Cat Movie Has a New Title and Director

Earlier this year we learned that Sony was making a Silver Sable and Black Cat movie. This is, of course, all part of the studio’s bizarre efforts to build a Spider-Man based shared universe sans actual Spider-Man.

Well, the project is moving forward, no matter how strange. The Hollywood Reporter reports that the director’s chair has been filled by Gina Prince-Bythewood. Prince-Bythewood is probably best known for writing and directing The Secret Life of Bees. The movie also apparently has a title now — Silver and Black.

I’m really not sure what I think about this thing. I mean, yeah – it’s a superhero film with women both headlining and directing. I’m all for that. What I don’t understand is the logic of pairing these two characters, as it’s not like they’re closely associated with each other.

Of course, doing things logically has never really been Sony’s thing.
