Yesterday, reports surfaced which detailed all of the villains Silver & Black is expected to contain. The impending Spider-Man spin-off will be one of Sony’s first attempts to jump start its own comic franchise like that of the MCU. And, now, That Hashtag Show is also reporting the film may feature a few other surprising Marvel alumni. After all, Silver Sable will need all the help she can get in tracking down Black Cat.
According to a new update, That Hashtag Show claims to have learned of several Marvel characters who debut in Silver & Black. The site stresses that Felicia Hardy’s Black Cat won’t just be tailed by baddies; The burglar is going to be hunted by help-for-hire detectives and federal agents alongside Silver Sable herself. In fact, if you are familiar with latter’s Wild Pack, then you will recognize some of the faces expected to appear in Silver & Black.
If you want to learn more about the film’s report roster, you can check out the slides below for more information.
It looks like Black Cat is going to be on the run from one vetted brigand. Dominic Fortune is expected to be part of Silver & Black, and the character will be less of a gangster and more of a justice-seeker. According to reports, Dominic will share a long history with Silver and be on the hunt for Black Cat following a theft. However, it looks like the character will be doing the job for the U.S. Department of Justice rather than an independent party. Silver Sable and Dominic are expected to work together as they track down Black Cat through South America, and their roguish behavior is sure to put them at odds at times.
If you never thought Agent Mark Sim would make it to theaters, then you better think again. That Hashtag Show is reporting the Korean-American federal agent will be part of Silver & Black. The report suggests the man will be the lead DoJ agent looking for Black Cat, but he will not have a massive presence in the movie. In the comics, fans will know Mark Sim best for his recent stint as a Nuhuman. Mark was effected by Black Bolt’s Terrigen bomb, and he was given the ability to absorb energy and even transform into a mythical beast.
Looking at these two additions, Marvel fans should get a few flashbacks to Silver Sable’s Wild Pack. The gang was originally an expert team of ragtag soldiers assembled by Silver’s father, and they operated sanctioned - and unsanctioned - missions from Symkaria. The massive group hosted members named Doug Powell and Lorna Kleinfeldt. These two reported characters aren’t believed to have massive roles in the film, but Sony could be nodding to Silver’s comic past through them. When the trio all reunite to track down Black Cat, it will be like the Wild Pack has reassembled.
Gina Prince-Bythewood, writer and director of The Secret Life of Bees, will direct the Marvel spin-off. Sony has aptly titled the film, Silver and Black. Chris Yost (Thor: Ragnarok) and Lisa Joy (Westworld) will oversee work on the script.
The cast includes Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob
