This summer we’ll be seeing Sony and Marvel rebooting Spider-Man with Tom Holland at the the head, but it looks like Sony is striking out to start its own cinematic universe. Fans have responded positively with the partnership between Sony and Marvel Studios, bringing the web-slinger to the screen once more, but that’s not the only her Sony is eyeing these days. It looks like we could be seeing Black Cat and Silver Sable on the silver screen also.
Reports broke earlier this month that Sony was looking to develop both femme fatales for the big screen and the studio is gearing up in a big way by attaching a familiar screenwriter from the Thor franchise. Thanks to one production source, it now looks like fans have learned Sony is has it’s eyes already set on a film date for the movie, and it could be closer than you think.
My Entertainment World reported Sony is looking to start production on the untitled Black Cat and Silver Sable films this fall. The time frame supports other reports we’ve heard about Venom, and spinoff that Sony is looking into. The Hollywood Reporter says that Venom is aiming for a R-rating and looks to start filming this year. The same report also says that Sony is looking to make these standalone films into a full-fledged universe.
Sony hasn’t given any comments on the production timeframes, but source also claims that Black Cat, Silver Sable, and Venom will NOT be attached to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in any way, leaving fans to wonder how these heroes would thrive. When more information is revealed by Sony, it will become more clear how the studio will be moving forward with their own superhero cinematic universe.
