Silver & Black

Sony’s beleaguered ‘Silver & Black’ movie, starring two Spider-Man supporting characters, Silver Sable and Black Cat, was, last we heard, scrapped.  The writers were said to be going back to the drawing board to develop two separate solo movies rather than a team up.  This news arrived in early August, following reports in June that the script needed overhauling, with Sony removing ‘Silver & Black’ from its release schedule.  Gina Prince-Bythewood had been attached to direct, but the feeling in August was that she would remain attached as a producer but would either not direct the two separate movies or might direct only one.

However, producer Matt Tolmach states that Sony is still “working on it [‘Silver & Black’]” and that “Gina Prince-Bythewood’s right. The script’s gotta be right. It’s true with all of these movies.”

In August, Prince-Bythewood said:

“With Silver and Black, when you’re doing a film of that magnitude, it’s gotta be right. And if it’s not right, we actually collectively decided to go back to the drawing board and start over. That’s gonna take time. So obviously, I’d love to be shooting right now, but to be shooting something that I know is not as good as it can be, I’m not the type that wants to shoot something you’re rewriting, as you’re shooting. So, we have to get the script right, and I’m okay to wait. I may be shooting something before that, but it really is just get the script right before we go on that journey.”

So it seems that perhaps ‘Silver & Black’ might still happen as a team-up feature, or maybe as two separate movies.  A lot depends on how well ‘Venom’ does, but so far, there doesn’t seem to be much buzz on that picture, starring Tom Hardy, which opens on October 5.  Sony also has ‘Morbius’ or ‘Morbius the Living Vampire’ in the pipeline, with Jared Leto attached to star, along with ‘Kraven the Hunter’ and ‘Nightwatch’ plus ‘Silk’, which may actually connect to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, since Tiffany Espensen‘s character Cindy Moon appeared in ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ which is established as part of the MCU.

Do you still want to see ‘Silver & Black’?  Or are you waiting to see how ‘Venom’ turns out?  Or should Sony just leave all the Spider-Man-related projects to Marvel Studios?
