THR is reporting a Silver Sable and the Black Cat film is in development. The script is being written by Chris Yost, who also worked Thor: Ragnarok. A previous script was written by the co-creator of HBO’s Westworld, Lisa Joy. The project is looking to start production in the fall. No word on who will be directing.
Black Cat, AKA Felicia Hardy, has a long and tangled romantic history with Spider-Man in the comics. A Felicia Hardy character, played by Felicity Jones, briefly appeared in Amazing Spider-Man 2, though no Black Cat connection was ever made explicit.
Silver Sable was created by Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz in 1985 and has been both antagonist and ally to Spider-Man.
The coming Sony project will be produced by Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal. Stay tuned, kids…
