Back when it first announced the idea of a Venom film some time ago, Sony Pictures seemed to get a bit overzealous on the idea of milking some of their Spider-Man-related IP. Very soon after that, it was revealed they were also working on a Silver Sable and Black Cat film, which is called Silver and Black. This one would be buddy film between these two female supers, and the studio even went so far as to hire Gina Prince-Bythewood to helm the film.
What’s more is that the movie was supposed to begin production last March, but the project was delayed “indefinitely” due to script issues. It’s now a few months later, and speaking with Screen Rant, Prince-Bythewood gave an update on the film, and it doesn’t sound like we can expect it to hit in the immediate future.
“The update is just really pounding out the script. It all starts with the script. You gotta have a great script so we want to make sure that’s right before we jump in.”
She certainly has a point with this. In the past, we’ve seen projects go up in flames because a studio is more hard-pressed to meet a release date than make a good film. With a property like Silver and Black, you can’t just churn it out and hopes the name will get butts in seats…because, frankly, its name won’t get butts in seats because it has no connection with mainstream audiences.
As easy as it is to brush this off as a movie that will never happen because fans don’t want it, I think it’s a good sign that the director isn’t letting the studio rush out the film for the sake of having the film hit in a timely manner after Venom.
