We probably all can remember that for a time Sony were pushing ahead with a movie reportedly titled Silver and Black and this movie would have seen Silver Sable and Black Cat in a team up movie. Since then everything seems to have died down with that movie and as far as anyone knew it was resigned to the trash can for the moment.
However, according to Sony’s Amy Pascal, producer of Venom and the upcoming Morbius for Sony, Black Cat at least is still a character they have plans for, and hints Silver and Black could still happen. Speaking with Screen Rant recently Pascal said the following with regards to Black Cat.
“I like Black Cat a lot, I think she is a really great character, we had her a little bit in the Amazing [Spider-Man] movie, but she’s kind of that character that we didn’t really turn into the Black Cat yet. I think that’s a really great character.” As for Silver and Black and its current status, Pascal said “We’re still working on that. I think we have plans for that.”
Interesting, but for this fan, also disappointing. Every time Sony announces a character for their fledgling VenomVerse, all I see is a names crossed off from ever appearing in the MCU. However, Sony still own the rights to Spider-Man and all his supporting characters and villains, so we simply have no choice but to accept whatever Sony decides to do with the characters it owns. I personally still don’t see why they don’t just allow Marvel to keep making movies for them under the MCU banner. They pay for the movie, marvel writes it and makes it and Sony gets the profits, that’s easy money if you ask me?

I do wonder whether this becomes a bit of an ego situation where the filmmakers currently contracted to Sony want to prove they can still make great comic book movies, despite in my opinion recent evidence saying otherwise, Into The Spider-Verse excluded of course.
Would you like to see Silver and Black come back from Sony and finally getting filmed or would you rather as a fan see Sony just allow Marvel to do all the hard work for them going forward? Leave your thoughts in our usual chat spot below as always.
