Director Weighs in On The Characters in Silver and Black
Gina Prince-Bythewood was recently announced as the director for the Spider-Man spin-off film Silver and Black, so she has some big duties to fulfill taking on this project. The director spoke about her responsibilities in bringing the dynamic duo to the big screen.
Silver and Black will focus primarily on Spider-Man characters Silver Sable and Black Cat, which is a weird team to set up but it could end up as something really cool if it goes in the right direction. Gina Prince-Bythewood hopes to do just that, as she is getting ready to work on the female-led superhero film. She recently spoke with Vulture on where things are shaping up for the film.
“The strange thing is, I knew I was the best person for this,” Prince-Bythewood said after confirming that she’s hard at work with revising the script. She later added:
Normally I get nervous regardless of what it is when I go into a meeting but with this, I saw the movie in my head as I was reading it, and it’s an exciting thing as a director when you know what you want to do with it. I was able to be so specific, so it was exciting in those meetings because everything I was talking about, they loved. We were feeding off each other.
We still don’t have a release date yet, but the director hopes to start casting people soon in order to start production during the fall. Regarding the process of creating a vision for the film, she said:
I go to bed thinking about it, I wake up thinking about it, and during the day, I have my notebook where I’m jotting down ideas and visuals and music. It’s so up my alley in terms of these two female characters and who they are and what they’re about. It’s the perfect way for me to dive into the Marvel universe, to focus on these two women who I really respect and can’t wait to bring to life.
