The second film in Sony’s No-Spider-Man Movie Universe now has a release date. Silver and Black, the Silver Sable/Black Cat superhero movie directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood, will be released February 8, 2019.

That’s just about four months after Venom, starring Tom Hardy and directed by Ruben Fleischer, hits theaters. Venom is first film in this still-untitled Marvel Universe Sony is starting to create that centers on Spider-Man villains, but doesn’t contain Spider-Man. Riz Ahmed is also rumored to be up for a role in Venom, and it’s expected to connect with this one.

Silver and Black was written by Chris Yost (Thor: The Dark World) and though plot details are scarce, it’ll obviously be about some mix of the two popular Spider-man foes, one of which is a mercenary, the other a skilled burglar.


And if you think the two non-Spider-Man movies are coming out very close together, you haven’t seen anything yet. In between Venom and Silver and Black, Fox will release X-Men Dark Phoenix, Sony has the unrelated animated Spider-Man movie, and Warner Bros. will release Aquaman. That’s a lot of superhero films in a very short window. Especially considering Captain Marvel follows one month later, and Avengers 4 comes out two months after that.

Now that there’s a release date, odds are casting will be announced fairly soon.

I don’t even get mixing Sable up with Black Cat. I don’t recall them ever interacting in the Spidey comics.
