Spider-Man Spin-Off Movie Silver And Black Has Been Scrapped

Our movie wants to honor the comics as close as we can tonally. However, it has been reported that one of the films-Silver and Black-is no longer happening. The Hollywood film studio may have reached an agreement with Marvel in allowing the latter to use Spider-Man (played by Tom Holland) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it has still also insisted on making its own independent movies focusing on Spider-Man villains and supporting Marvel characters.

We're talking about the Superior Spider-Man ... or as he's now conveniently called, the Superior Octopus.

With the the highly anticipated comic book film, Venom, set to release fairly soon, Sony is gearing up for their own Sony's Marvel Universe. This may be why the report indicated that Sony is open to lending out more characters to the MCU, in exchange for a few guest appearances from Marvel's side of the universe.

The company has also set up a screenwriter for a movie based on Kraven the Hunter in The Equalizer 2's Richard Wenk, and is developing another movie based on the character of Nightwatch, for which it is now seeking a writer as well. This also includes the many heroes and villains who have appeared in Spider-Man comics over the years, and there are various spin-off movies on the way, including the upcoming Venom.

Sony's Marvel Universe is by far one of the most confusing enterprises now going, and though Tom Hardy's Venom looks better by the day, no one really knows who the franchise is for, with an apparent connection to Disney's MCU still up in the air, and Tom Holland's Spider-Man nowhere to be seen.

They believe Black Cat can stand on her own and will feature in her own film. The status of spin-offs Silver & Black and Nightwatch were, however, in doubt - until now. While Panitch is the one in charge of this entire enterprise, so to speak, Sony's approach to the actual films will be more "producer-driven", so you can expect lots of variety and deviation on each individual production. Are you excited for what Sony has planned for their Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters?
