Thanks to the success of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Sony Pictures will continue to move forward with a variety of films featuring Spider-Man's roster of friends and foes. Silver Sable and Black Cat, two of Spidey's regular femme fatales, will be getting the film Silver and Black, which will hit theaters February 8, 2019, according to Deadline.
The film will be directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood with a script from Chris Yost.
Thanks to a tip from Splash Report earlier this year, fans have learned the Black Cat and Silver Sable spinoff may feature some big Marvel names. One of the site's sources dished alleged details about the film, and the report states that characters like Norman Osborn, Kraven the Hunter, Spider-Woman, and more will make an appearance in the film.
You can read the full tip-off below:
- "Here are some details about the story: Seven years after Mendel Stromm (a.k.a. Robot Master) and his two henchmen (The Scorpion and The Tarantula) killed her father, Silver Sable is hired by the government to find Felicia Hardy. The Black Cat, a master hacker and thief, has apparently stolen valuable secret information. She's hiding in the lawless and dangerous triple frontier area between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil.
- Once there, Sable ask her old contact Dmitri Smerdyakov (a.k.a. The Chameleon) to locate her. But it seems, the government are not the only ones looking for the Black Cat. It seems Felicia had made a deal Stromm to save her father from a Russian prison and she's been genetically enhanced. Now, the mad scientist wants his prized experiment back because his financier (cough Norman Osborn cough) wants a return on his investment.
- There's no appearance or mention of Peter Parker or Spider-Man.
- Also in the story: Dominic Fortune, Jessica Drew (Spider-Woman), Roxxon Oil, Sergei Kravinoff (Kraven the Hunter), Lonnie Lincoln (Tombstone) and Charles Standish."
Before the Black Cat and Silver Sable film hits theaters, fans will be able to enjoy Tom Hardy starring in Venom on October 5, 2018.
