Chris Yost, who previously wrote Thor: The Dark World and the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, is set to pen a Sony-produced film revolving around Black Cat and Silver Sable, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Additionally, the outlet is reporting that Amy Pascal and Matt Tolmach will be producers on the project. Sony is reportedly looking to find a director soon, in hopes of kicking off production in Fall.
Black Cat and Silver Sable, along with Venom, are seemingly Sony throwing their hat into the comic book film ring. However, what we’re still not sure of are the films’ place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Could we be seeing a Spider-Man universe without the titular character, or are these spinoff films set in the MCU with the likes of Captain America and Iron Man? At this point, we don’t have the answer.
