Tom Hardy gives rare insight into friendship with legend Prince Harry – see what he had to say
"Because our character does not originate from Spider-Man, it makes no sense to put a spider on his chest".
President of Columbia Pictures Sanford Panitch, who is overseeing Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters explains, "We believe Black Cat is enough of her own character with a great backstory and a canon of material to draw from to justify her own film".
According to a deep-dive into the current Sony situation from Variety, the company is working to prepare movies based on two more characters from its Marvel Comics library. Whereas Marvel just rolls with the punches and sticks to the gameplan when some films are not as massively successful as others, I would not be surprised that if Venom flops when it releases in October, I'm going to be writing another one of these huge articles about how Sony's plans have changed yet again. Characters like Silk, Jackpot, and Nightwatch are also being considered for features. They are extending that relationship with Spider-Man sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Original director of the Sliver & Black film, Gina Prince-Bythewood is likely to take a producer credit on both the Black Cat and Silver Sable film, but will not stay to be writer or director for either project. Silver & Black are headed to the big screen, too, but they've since been redirected to individual solo movies. This may be why the report indicated that Sony is open to lending out more characters to the MCU, in exchange for a few guest appearances from Marvel's side of the universe.
Sony's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse will mark Miles Morales' feature film debut and Peter Parker will be on hand to mentor the young hero as he begins his superhero career. But he also said, "We're focused on being faithful to the comics".
