Sony Removed Spider-Man Spinoff Silver & Black From Its Schedule

Andrew Liptak reporting for The Verge:

Word broke last year that Sony was developing the superhero spinoff based on the Spider-Man-adjacent characters Black Cat and Silver Sable, and Sony announced that the film would hit theaters in February 2019, just months after its other Spider-Man spinoff film, Venom, would hit theaters. Now, Deadline reports that the film is off the schedule completely, and is headed back into development.

This is for the best. Sony should ditch the “Spider-Man-adjacent” idea. They should sign a contract for all these “Spider-Man-adjacent” with Marvel and just cash in on the royalty checks every time Marvel brings out the money printer with new Spider-Man MCU movies.
