It’s been a solid day for news on the women in the Marvel Universes. Earlier today we shared news on the writing/directing team that is apparently taking on the Kitty Pryde solo film for Fox, and now we have information on the writers for Sony’s Silver & Black tag-team ladies team-up.
Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet are going to be penning the script for the two femme fatales. Beer is relatively unknown up to now, but has an enormous slate of announced credits coming up, with M.A.S.K., Godzilla Vs Kong, Barbie and Dungeons & Dragons all on her slate. Robertson-Dworet most notably penned the script for the currently-in-production, Captain Marvel, and is also on the writing team for M.A.S.K. and Dungeons & Dragons, as well as Sherlock 3 and Tomb Raider. Gina Prince-Bythewood, who is best known from Love and Basketball and The Secret Life of Bees is going to direct, and she also wrote the first draft of the script.
No casting has been set as of yet, but based on the excitement surrounding the other projects these women are working on, hopefully this gets a worthwhile take. Does news of this writing team get you excited? Is this a movie that should even be happening? Does it tie into the rest of the MCU like Venom should? Let us know what you think!
