Sony Pictures appears to have put the Silver & Black – named for Silver Sable and Black Cat – on indefinite hold.
According to That Hashtag Show, Sony Pictures has delayed Silver & Black. The film was due to start shooting in March, but the studio has brought on new screenwriters in Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet. Gina Prince-Bythewood remains on as director despite having penned the last version of the script, which actually replaced a version by Chris Yost and Lisa Joy.
This doesn’t come as much of a surprise as no cast had been announced as of yet. This, of course, also means the Feb. 8, 2019 release date is certain to be moved in the coming weeks or months.
I’m still not sold on this film, or really any of the Spider-Man spinoffs that don’t deal with the Web Slinger, but Sony is probably not going to give up on this concept any time soon.
