SILVER & BLACK Has Been Split Into Two Movies; SILK And JACKPOT Films Are In Development

Following the reveal that Sony was developing a Kraven the Hunter movie, more details have come out on the studio's plans for the Spider-Man universe, including word on some new solo films in the works.

Venom hasn't hit theaters yet, but Sony is still confidently moving forward with their cinematic Spider-Man universe, and now some new details have come out on the universe's slate of films.

According to a new report from Variety, the Gyna Prince-Bythwood directed Silver & Black movie is being scrapped, with Black Cat and Silver Sable receiving individual solo films. Prince-Bythewood will also be departing as director but will remain attached to the new solo projects as a producer.

While this decision may be surprising to fans, the president of Columbia Pictures, Sanford Panitch, did provide some insight into this decision, saying: "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."

However, that's not the only change coming to Sony's various Marvel projects, as it was also reported that Silk and Jackpot films were also in development, with the studio actively looking for writers to pen the scripts.


Along with this news the site also noted that Sony will "experiment with budget ranges," and that they want to make comic book movies along the lines of Deadpool and Logan.
