It looks like Sony may have started announcing things a bit prematurely with their VenomVerse films. While their first movie, Venom, appears to be on track to hit its October release date, Silver & Black is reportedly having a bit of a delay, as That Hashtag Show reported on Friday.
According to the outlet, Silver & Black will not be hitting its original production start date of March 5, and will be “delayed indefinitely.” With this in mind, it’s pretty much a given that the movie won’t be hitting its February 8, 2019 release, date, and it sounds like there is no other release date in mind.
This actually makes a good deal of sense, as only a couple weeks back, it was revealed that in-demand writers Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet were set to work on another draft of the script. No way they’d want to rush to push this film out without getting a working script. In fact, director Gina Prince-Bythewood confirmed the delay of the film, and addressed the reason, and it all seems to fall in line.
Still working on the script. All about the script.

So should we be worried? Personally, I don’t think so. This is a movie that pretty much no one is asking for, so Sony better make damn well sure that the script is golden before they begin production on this. Sadly, they’ll have to eat crow on this, because they’ve already set a release date for the film, and this is just proof that they don’t fully have a vision on what this universe should be yet.
But, let’s hope they’re putting the time in where it counts.
