Intriguing. http://variety.com/2017/film/news/silver-sable-black-cat-movie-spider-man-movie-sony-1202014365/ Following the news that a “Venom” pic is coming next year, Sony is now fast at work on another “Spider-Man”-related film, this time focused on female characters Silver Sable and Black Cat. Sources confirm to Variety that “Thor: Ragnarok” scribe Chris Yost is penning the script. The previous draft was written by “Westworld” co-creator Lisa Joy. Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal are producing the project.

Black Cat is burglar named Felicia Hardy, who briefly appeared in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” played by Felicity Jones. While both characters exist in Marvel’s “Spider-Man” universe, the Yost-penned film will not be a crossover with the webslinger. Sony is actively searching for a director for both this and the “Venom” spin-off. The studio recently receiving a draft on “Venom” with hopes to land a director very soon. “Venom” will swing into theaters on Oct. 5, 2018. Besides writing the next “Thor” pic, Yost has also dabbled in Marvel’s animated series such as “The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes” and “Wolverine and “X-Men.” He is repped by Verve. The next core “Spider-Man” pic, “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” comes out July 7, 2017. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Well, I wish this was in the MCU proper, but I hope that the producers are careful to get some people who really care about the characters and aren't out to just do a quick cash-in. They need to cast some actresses who can be athletic and carry themselves in the spirit of the character. I have no idea about the presumed ages of the characters-- but it should be character appropriate for each. Felicia should be the "honorable thief"-- not the wannabe Mob boss that she is now. Silver should be a global private investigator. Considering both of these characters are platinum blonde (whether dyed or not, in-universe), that's a first for two leads.
