One week after Sony Studios announced they are moving forward with a stand-alone film for Spider-Man’s arch nemesis Venom (due late next year), today news broke of another spin-off set within the web-slinger’s universe, this time focusing on franchise staples Black Cat and Silver Sable. Little is currently known about the female-led project, save for two big facts; renowned Thor: Ragnarok writer Chris Yost is currently working on the screenplay, and the film (along with 2018’s Venom) will be not be directly connected to the extended Marvel Universe.
Sony certainly seem confident in their latest reboot of the Marvel hero (Spider-Man: Homecoming), and are apparently working to build as large a universe around the character as possible. This will surely put smiles on the faces of long time Spidey fans, as the wall-crawling icon boasts arguably the most beloved roster of villains across the Marvel Universe. And with Homecoming being among the most anticipated releases of the year, it could only be a matter of time before we see more of the sharp-witted hero’s foes given the stand-alone treatment.
