Sony’s Silver And Black Lands Writers

Image result for silver & black movie

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!

Are We Wrong About Venom? New Surprising Details

For months, your Trusty Sidekicks have been bemoaning Sony for running out an ill-advised Venom movie on their own, off the back of Spidey being shifted to the larger MCU through a partnership with Disney. On our latest podcast (which you can catch the latest of here,) we even lament what we thought was causing this move by Sony, to flood us with Spiderverse characters out of defensive pride over giving up the storytelling reigns on their main Marvel character.

Not so much today. News has come out that Tom Holland has been shuttled from the Avengers: Infinity War set, to the Venom set, both filming in Georgia, for 2 days as Peter Parker in the Tom Hardy led Venom movie. Not only that, but rumor has it that the Carnage pic Tom Hardy leaked is actually indicative of the fact that Cletus Kasady will be the villain of the film, and will be the source of the additional symbiotes.

As it turns out, it’s very likely Feige and the Disney MCU team has been more involved with what’s going on in the Spiderverse than they wanted to let on. In fact, some of you may recall the Feige/Amy Pascal interview in which Pascal suggested as much, leading to one of the most hilarious Marvel press junket gifs of all time, the “Feige WTF” react (video below.) If it turns out, Feige and the MCU are parenting the entire Spiderverse, and it’s not just macho pride producing from Sony, it definitely changes our expectations for the success of not only Venom, but the upcoming Silver & Black as well. Does this change anything for you? Let us know!

Sony’s “Silver And Black” Set To Begin Filming in Atlanta Next Year

Spider-Man-Sony-Marvel-Silver-and-Black

Yes, in case you forgot Sony is not just doing one Spiderman based film, they are doing several. The next one outside of the already in production solo Venom film, is that of “Silver & Black” and it’s going into production next year.

Silver & Black, now in its pre-production stage, will introduce filmgoers to the characters of Felicia Hardy (portayed by Felicity Jones inn the Amazing Spiderman 2)/Black Cat and Silver Sablinova/Silver Sable.  Now at the moment we don’t have any casting information but hopefully that will be released soon.
 

Oh yeah in case you think that Sony is stopping their Spider-verse with just these films…..they arent. Following the releases of both Venom and Silver & Black, Sony also has plans to release a film based on the Marvel Comics character Morbius the Living Vampire.

Morbius

That script is currently being worked on by Matt Sazama and Burk Shapless, who wrote the story for the 2017 Power Rangers film. Silver & Black is currently slated for a release on February 8, 2019.

Are you looking forward to Silver & Black and the rest of Sony’s Spider-verse films Let us know.
