Black Cat and Silver Sable team-up film Silver and Black has lost its release date. It was dated for February 8th, 2019. The film was set to be directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood. Captain Marvel screenwriter Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Chaos Walking‘s Lindsey Beer were the ones who drafted the latest script. This would be a team-up of two marvel characters set in Sony’s new Spider-Verse thing they are setting up with Venom, which releases in October. The dreaded “Undated” distinction is listed with the film’s title, according to Exhibitor Relations.

While this does not mean that the film is for sure not happening, one needs to look no further than a film like Fox’s long-delayed and gestating Gambit to know that it could still be a ways away.
While this film could ultimately turn out to be a lot of fun, the project has been met with some curious looks since it was announced. Sony has been desperately looking to the Spidey universe for any characters it can throw into some kind of shared universe for quite a while now. Our own Kaitlyn Booth reported on some story rumors for the film last year, and they were… interesting at least:
“Here are some details about the story: Seven years after Mendel Stromm (a.k.a. Robot Master) and his two henchmen (The Scorpion and The Tarantula) killed her father, Silver Sable is hired by the government to find Felicia Hardy. The Black Cat, a master hacker and thief, has apparently stolen valuable secret information. She’s hiding in the lawless and dangerous triple frontier area between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil.
Once there, Sable ask her old contact Dmitri Smerdyakov (a.k.a. The Chameleon) to locate her. But it seems, the government are not the only ones looking for the Black Cat. It seems Felicia had made a deal Stromm to save her father from a Russian prison and she’s been genetically enhanced. Now, the mad scientist wants his prized experiment back because his financier (cough Norman Osborn cough) wants a return on his investment.
There’s no appearance or mention of Peter Parker or Spider-Man.
Also in the story: Dominic Fortune, Jessica Drew (Spider-Woman), Roxxon Oil, Sergei Kravinoff (Kraven the Hunter), Lonnie Lincoln (Tombstone) and Charles Standish.”
I guess now we will have to wait and see.
