It has been reported that Sony is working on spin-off films that involves Spider-Man characters like Venom and Black Cat that are a part of a whole separate universe, that has nothing to do with the MCU. Venom is apparently going to be an R-rated horror sci-fi film, while another movie in the works revolves around the characters Black Cat and Silver Sable. According to My Entertainment World, production on Black Cat and Silver Sable is expected to start this Fall 2017.
Black Cat has famously been one of Spider-Man’s love interest
This is interesting news, as Venom is also expected to start production in Fall also. Both of these films have no cast or director attached to the film, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if they got delayed.
In the My Entertainment World description, it describes both characters. Silver Sable is a mercenary who runs a company that hunts down war criminals. Felica Hardy aka Black Cat is described as somebody who’s an acrobatic cat burglar. Both of those descriptions are accurate to what they are in the comics. Both of these characters have had a history with the web slinger in the comics, so a movie without him could be interesting.
No one knows what this film is about, and who’s going to be involved with it. Production is apparently starting soon, so there will most likely be announcements coming regarding Venom and Black Cat and Silver Sable.
