Sony’s “Silver and Black,” which features the Black Cat and Silver Sable, two of Spider-Man’s most prominent female sparring partners, has been given a release date of Feb. 8, 2019.
Gina Prince-Bythewood is directing.
Silver Sable is a mercenary who runs a company that hunts criminals. She hasn’t been introduced in a previous film. Meanwhile, Hardy made her debut in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” played by Felicity Jones.
Prince-Bythewood recently directed the pilot for Marvel’s upcoming series “Cloak & Dagger” on Freeform. She also recently co-created the show “Shots Fired” on Fox with her husband Reggie Rock Bythewood. The show aired its season finale Wednesday.
Prince-Bythewood will also rewrite the script by Christopher Yost, who wrote the screenplay for “Thor: The Dark World.”
“Silver and Black” will follow Sony’s “Venom,” which has cast Tom Hardyin the lead role. It’s the latest push by the studio to create films based on characters in the Spider-Man universe. Neither will be set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is spearheaded by Marvel Entertainment and Disney.
