Now that Spider-Man is a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Sony is looking at new heroes to introduce to the fans. Earlier this year, the studio announced that they are making a Silver Sable and Black Cat movie but recently, new details have emerged. The alleged plot of the upcoming movie has been leaked online and it revealed that more characters from the life of Peter Parker will make the transition from the pages of comic books to the big screen.
Sony’s Superhero Cinematic Universe
Sony is on its way to creating its own cinematic universe similar to the MCU. This year, aside from Silver Sable and Black Cat, the studio also announced an R-rated Venom movie with Tom Hardy in the lead.
From the looks of it, the studio wants a cinematic universe around Spider-Man but without Peter Parker. New information about the project revealed that more characters will be introduced to the big screen.
Last week, Splash Report shared a bit more information about Silver and Black, the spin-off based on the characters Silver Sable and Black Cat. The site also detailed that the upcoming movie will also feature the likes of Kraven the Hunter, Tombstone, Dominic Fortune, Roxxon Oil, and Charles Standish.
Kraven the Hunter is a favorite and fans have been hoping that he will make his way into a Spider-Man movie one day. If Sony decides to use him and the others in the Silver Sable and Black Cat movie, they will be even more unlikely to cross paths with Peter Parker in the MCU.
The source also revealed that while Peter Parker is saving the MCU, the studio will have their own web-slinger in Jessica Drew a.k.a. Spider-Woman.
Moreover, the leaked information also hints that Norman Osborn will also make his way back the big screen. The villain has previously appeared in both of Sony’s Spider-Man movie series.
Silver Sable and Black Cat Movie Plot
The publication also recently published the plot to Silver and Black. Read below:
“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.”
However, the publication continues that Silver Sable will realize that her client, the government, is the not the only one looking for Black Cat. Apparently, Black Cat made a deal with Stromm to save her father from a Russian prison. Moreover, she has been genetically enhanced and the mad scientist who made her wants her back.
The site noted that the project does not mention the involvement of Spider-Man. Holland currently has a contract with Marvel to appear in three more movies as the web-slinger in Avengers: Infinity War, the still-untitled Avengers 4 and Spider-Man: Homecoming 2.
Note that Sony is yet to announce any of the information mentioned above. Take these with a grain of salt.
Christopher Yost of Thor: The Dark World has signed up to pen the script. Meanwhile, Gina Prince-Bythewood (The Secret Life of Bees) will sit as the director. Sony’s Amy Pascal and Matt Tolmach are also attached as producers.
According to earlier reports, production of the movie titled Silver and Black will begin this fall. The actors who will play the roles of Silver Sable and Black Cat are yet to be announced. Felicity Jones (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) did appear briefly as Felicia Hardy in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but the franchise did not last long enough to see the character’s transformation into Black Cat.
