Silver & Black, previously announced not long after Venom, has finally been cancelled by the studio after numerous delays, with development now proceeding on two separate films for the characters Black Cat and Silver Sable.
We're talking about the Superior Spider-Man ... or as he's now conveniently called, the Superior Octopus. Characters like Silk, Jackpot, and Nightwatch are also being considered for features. It is set for release on October 5th. 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.
But if the anti-hero Venom finds enough compelled moviegoers, there is one Spider-Man property that seems inevitably destined for Sony to try to exploit ... and no, we're not talking about Spider-Gwen ... or Ghost Spider... or whatever Marvel is calling her these days.
That's according to Variety, which reports that an R - which was to have been a first in the Marvel-Sony partnership - is "unlikely" at this point for "Venom", which will instead "push the very limits of PG-13 without crossing over into a higher rating".
You've heard of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Universal's dormant Dark Universe, but what about the SUMC?
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. They are extending that relationship with Spider-Man sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home. ". Any "Spider-Man" movie will carry a PG-13 rating because the wall-crawler is more family friendly, and if "Venom" is too dark and gory, it might preclude other film match-ups, not just with Peter Parker's alter-ego, but also with other members of the extended Marvel Cinematic Universe".
