Exclusive Hot Rumor: SILVER AND BLACK Story Details!
It was announced yesterday that Gina Prince-Bythewood (The Secret Life of Bees) will be directing the Spider-Man offshoot Silver and Black for Sony. It centers on Silver Sable and the Black Cat. It’s the second film announced in the Marvel/Sony owned universe after Venom. Christopher Yost (Thor: The Dark World) wrote the screenplay.
I received a hot tip from one of my sources concerning the Silver and Black project:
“Here are some details about the story: Seven years after Mendel Stromm (a.k.a. Robot Master) and his two henchmen (The Scorpion and The Tarantula) killed her father, Silver Sable is hired by the government to find Felicia Hardy. The Black Cat, a master hacker and thief, has apparently stolen valuable secret information. She’s hiding in the lawless and dangerous triple frontier area between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil.
Once there, Sable ask her old contact Dmitri Smerdyakov (a.k.a. The Chameleon) to locate her. But it seems, the government are not the only ones looking for the Black Cat. It seems Felicia had made a deal Stromm to save her father from a Russian prison and she’s been genetically enhanced. Now, the mad scientist wants his prized experiment back because his financier (cough Norman Osborn cough) wants a return on his investment.
There’s no appearance or mention of Peter Parker or Spider-Man.
Also in the story: Dominic Fortune, Jessica Drew (Spider-Woman), Roxxon Oil, Sergei Kravinoff (Kraven the Hunter), Lonnie Lincoln (Tombstone) and Charles Standish.”

Woha… They’re planning on using Norman Osborn in the Sony Universe??? I don’t know if it’s a smart idea. We’ll see what happens…
