Sony Picture’s upcoming Silver and Black movie is reportedly slated to film from March 5 until mid-June. The movie is a Spider-Man spinoff, much like the Tom Hardy-led Venom currently in production, that focuses on the characters Silver Sable and Black Cat.
Little concrete information has been released about Silver and Black, but an early report claimed that the film would revolve around Silver Sable, a bounty hunter in pursuit of the master thief Black Cat. Silver Sable takes the job because she believes it will put her one step closer to the mad scientist Mendel Stromm, the film’s main antagonist.
Today’s filming dates were revealed by That Hashtag Show, but there are plenty of rumors to go around. Silver and Black is also rumored to include the Wild Pack, a mercenary team that frequently works with Silver Sable. The film might also include a cameo by one of Marvel’s most iconic Spider-Man villains, Norman Osborn, though only as a voiceover. Norman Osborn played a major role in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, but the villain, who is crucial to Peter Parker’s story, has taken a cinematic backseat since then.
Debuting in theaters on Feb. 8, 2019, Silver and Black is directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood. No additional casting details for the film have been released at this time.
