Rumor: Story details revealed for Silver & Black

Yesterday the world got news that a Silver Sable and Black Cat movie called SILVER & BLACK is being made with director Gina Prince-Bythewood. Given how the hero these characters are involved with, Spider-Man, is busy being used by Marvel many are wondering how exactly a movie with these ladies will work, and thanks to a new rumor we now can answer that question with a bit more depth.

The rumor comes from Splash Report who is reporting info revealed by a source close to the project, and who was willing to give up a hefty amount of 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.”

Based on the scoop it seems that, if this rumor proves true, the story will be more like an espionage spy thriller than a straight-up action blockbuster. Sable seems to be more of the main character of the two, at least based on how this story is laid out. The biggest takeaway, though, is the inclusion of several famous characters like Norman Osbourne, Kraven and Spider-Woman.

With Spider-Man out of the picture it seems Sony is trying to compensate with tons of other characters from the universe in hopes of luring in avid comic fans and kicking off their own franchise of films. Part of that franchise is VENOM, which recently cast Tom Hardy in the lead role.

No matter what the story, I just don’t know if this proposed universe is a good idea without having Spider-Man. These characters often hinge on the wall-crawler to give them purpose, so without him these movies are going to be a tough sell. As well, with all these characters this movie could get crowded, and we all know Sony has no problem stuffing their Spider-Man-related movies. Fingers-crossed they can get this right. Very, very tightly crossed.
