Fans were ecstatic to learn that Spider-Man would be joining the MCU, but Sony has not given up its plans to create their own Spider-Man cinematic universe... without Spider-Man. Tom Hardy is starring in a Venom movie, while Silver Sable and Black Cat are getting their own team-up film. Reportedly called Silver & Black, the film is meant to include and tease other Spider-Man characters, but a new rumor claims that it will also be setting up a new spin-off film. Supposedly, Sony is interesting in making an all-female superhero team movie with Spidey-verse characters.
Director Gina Prince-Bythewood will be bringing Black Cat and Silver Sable together in Silver & Black, but it sounds like she could be handling some other female superheroes as well. Citing an unnamed source, Splash Report is claiming that Silver & Black will be the setup for an all-female Spidey-verse team movie. Apparently, the film will end with Silver Sable acting as a Nick Fury-type and rounding up The Black Cat, Jessica Drew (Spider-Woman), Charlotte Witter (Stunner), Sara Ehret (Jackpot) and Cassie St. Commons (Dusk) for an unrevealed purpose.
Much like the last rumor that Spidey villains like Kraven the Hunter, and Norman Osborn would be in Silver & Black, don't put a whole lot of stock into this just yet. For the time being, this is just an unconfirmed rumor, though it does line up with earlier reports that when Sony still had Spider-Man, they were considering an all female team-up movie. It's an interesting idea and one that hasn't been seen on screen before. With the success of Wonder Woman, this could be something Sony is considering, but it's not without its issues.
The characters listed by the uncited source are curious to say the lease. With some exceptions, most of them have a peripheral association with Spider-Man at best and are pretty obscure: Jessica Drew is more of an Avengers character, but has built a comradery with Spider-Man in recent years; Charlotte Witter, better known as the evil Spider-Woman, is one of the many characters to use the name who actually became a villain; Sara Ehret, a reluctant superhero who Spider-Man convinced to not waste her powers once; and Cassie St. Commons, a kind of half-dead supernatural character whose superhero name was once used by Spider-Man. Calling some of these Spider-Man characters is a bit of a stretch, but I suppose Sony has to use what it's got.
