Spider-Man Spinoff 'Silver & Black' Lands Big Name Writers


Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet will pen the most recent draft of "Silver & Black", which sees the crook-beseeching mercenary and the rob-the-rich-to-give-to-the-poor robber Black Cat getting together to take down - I'm guessing here - some sort of common enemy.

Gina Prince-Bythewood says Silver Sable and Black Cat are "modern and cool" and even though "they may wear costumes, [they're] very real and very grounded".

Along with her work on Chaos Walking, Beer also served as part of the Transformers writers room, while also working on King vs Godzilla and Quentin Tarantino's R-rated Star Trek film.

CinemaBlend will keep you posted with more updates related to Silver & Black as new details related to the Sony Spider-Man universe project become available to us. Black Cat, on the other hand, is the daughter of the world-renowned cat burglar Walter Hardy, and trained herself in multiple different fighting styles and acrobatics in order to follow in his footsteps. Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal will produce Silver and Black.

Silver & Black is slated to open February 8, 2019. The Silver Sable and Black Cat-centric film is set to be directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love and Basketball, The Secret Life of Bees), who also wrote the first draft of the script. She also wrote the highly anticipated Captain Marvel - the first female-fronted Marvel Studios movie - starring Brie Larson. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Bythewood is now doing a polish on Robertson-Dworet and Beer's draft that she will submit to the studio. The character made her comic book debut in 1985's The Amazing Spider-Man #265. Robertson-Dworet has worked on Captain Marvel, which is now in production under Marvel Studios, and the Alicia Vikander Tomb Raider reboot, which is set to hit theatre screens sometime later this year.
