Spider-Man Spin-Off Movie Silver And Black Has Been Scrapped

Spider-Man Spin-Off Movie Silver And Black Has Been Scrapped

They are also scrapping their planned Silver & Black film which would have starred Black Cat a.k.a Felicia Hardy and Silver Sable a.k.a Silver Sablinova. With 900 characters in the stable, calling the franchise a "Spider-Man Universe" is somewhat limiting.

Other projects look to be part of Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters are movies based on Silk, Jackpot, and Nightwatch.

Sony's Spider-Man universe which will make its true debut in the upcoming Venom film starring Tom Hardy has an official name. Any Spider-Man movie will carry a PG-13 rating because the wall-crawler is more family friendly, and if Venom is too dark and gory, it might preclude other film match-ups, not just with Peter Parker's alter-ego, but also with other members of the extended Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

Sony's Venom movie is reportedly likely to have a PG-13 rating, rather than an R.




The company has also set up a screenwriter for a movie based on Kraven the Hunter in The Equalizer 2's Richard Wenk, and is developing another movie based on the character of Nightwatch, for which it is now seeking a writer as well. In June we heard that Sony had removed the film from their release schedule as they took it back to the drawing board though, and now we know what they've come up with as the film will be split into two separate features focusing on each character independently.

"We believe Black Cat is enough of her own character with a great backstory and a canon of material to draw from to justify her own film", said Sanford Panitch, president of Columbia Pictures.

You've heard of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Universal's dormant Dark Universe, but what about the SUMC?

They've given the popular character that's had success on the page and on the screen a new superhero identity that doesn't trade on the name Spider-Man, they're set him up as an anti-hero which seems to fit in seamlessly with Venom and the rest of the Sony properties in development and placed him in San Francisco, which just so happens to be where ... wait for it ... The status of spin-offs Silver & Black and Nightwatch were, however, in doubt - until now. There are also plans for more Spider-Man affiliated characters to show-up in Marvel movies as well as Avengers possibly making cameos in Sony films.
