Despite giving Disney and Marvel Studios access to Spider-Man, Sony Pictures is still intent on using the numerous characters at their disposal to make whatever money they can. Case-in-point: Venom — an altogether pointless film (in my opinion, at least), especially without Spider-Man’s presence. But these weren’t the only plans we’ve known about for a while. One other project in the works is Silver and Black, a movie set to bring together Black Cat and Silver Sable.

If you were one of the people looking forward to that movie, then I come bearing bad tidings…it ain’t happening. Sorry. In a new extensive report from Variety, they are nixing that in favor of having a Black Cat standalone film, Sanford Panitch, president of Columbia Pictures revealed:

“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.”

So what does this mean for director Gina Prince-Bythewood? Should this decision get finalized, she will likely leave the project, but she will still receive producer credit for the separate Black Cat and Silver Sable movies. For those films, Sony is working to make sure she is replaced by female directors.

What do you think of this move from the studio? Let us know your thoughts down below!
