Spider-Man Spin-Off Movie Silver And Black Has Been Scrapped

Universal tried to launch their Dark Universe banner and now Sony is looking to launch their own universe with Spider-Man characters.

Plot details on the film are now under wraps, though director Ruben Fleischer has previously stated that the film will be based on the Lethal Protector and Planet of the Symbiotes comic book runs.

Venom gets released October 5.

Sony's upcoming Venom film may be eyeing a PG-13 rating instead of the previously rumored R, but Tom Hardy's symbiote-bonded Eddie Brock certainly isn't pulling any punches in this terrifying new image.

Sony has the film rights to Spider-Man, while Disney retains the merchandising rights.

But Sony appears to be open to throwing the door open even further, according to a report on the state of Sony's Marvel projects in Variety.


Sony already has plans in place to bring Morbius the Living Vampire to theaters with Jared Leto in the title role and Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) siting in the directors chair.

"Marvel and Sony have strengthened their ties in recent years".

In addition, Sony has officially scrapped the female driven Silver & Black film that was supposed to feature the Black Cat, a thief, and Sliver Sable, a ruthless mercenary.

"We believe Black Cat is enough of her own character with a great backstory and a canon of material to draw from to justify her own film", said Sanford Panitch, president of Columbia Pictures.

While many have commonly referred to Sony's planned universe as the "Spider-Verse", it turns out the studio has a different name for it. "Because our character does not originate from Spider-Man, it makes no sense to put a spider on his chest".
