Sony Pictures Pursuing Spider-Man: Homecoming Spin-Off With Black Cat And Silver Sable

Sony Pictures is reported to be working on a film featuring Black Cat and Silver Sable that ties into Spider-Man: Homecoming.

The revelation comes just a week after it was announced that the studio is also planning to make a film focusing on the wallcrawler’s nemesis, Venom, sometime next year. Not much has been disclosed about either project, but what was made clear was that neither the Black Cat and Silver Sable project nor the Venom film will take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, despite the fact that Tom Holland plays Peter Parker and his masked alter ego in both the MCU and Homecoming.

Apparently, the studio has been thinking about producing the project for some time, with a script already being submitted to Thor: The Dark World and Ragnarok scribe Chris Yost for rewrites.

Superherohype, the source of this story, shares the following about Black Cat and Silver Sable:

Created by Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz, Silver Sable made her comic book debut in 1985’s The Amazing Spider-Man #265. Hailing from the fictional European nation Symkaria, Sable is an expertly trained mercenary whose company, Silver Sable International, funds a team called the Wild Pack. Although the Wild Pack was founded by Sable’s father, she herself becomes its leader.

Black Cat, meanwhile, dates back to 1979’s The Amazing Spider-Man #149.

About the author

Reggie Peralta

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
