Will Spider-Man Spinoff Silver & Black Introduce Spider-Woman And Kraven The Hunter?

27 May 2017 1:11 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sony’s Spider-Man universe is a curious thing. Already announced are spinoffs such as Venom and Silver & Black (featuring Silver Sable and Black Cat), and while they both sound promising so far, there’s just one problem: neither of them will include Peter Parker. That’s because the character is busy over in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the studio is unable to use him. For the time being, at least.

Still, they’re pushing on with their plans to create a whole shared universe featuring Spidey characters and after hearing that Gina Prince-Bythewood had been assigned to the director’s chair of Silver & Black, we’ve now got some rumored plot details for the film. Though none of this has been confirmed just yet, the outlet reporting on it, Splash Report, claims that they have a source who’s given them an outline of the story that will power the spinoff, »

5 Cult TV Shows That Deserve A Reboot

Ben Robins with 5 cult TV shows that deserve a reboot…

Despite something of a critical bollocking, Dwayne Johnson’s tongue-in-cheek Baywatch reboot is set to take on a huge portion of the summer box office takings. And considering that it’s very much following in the footsteps of similar cult TV reboot success stories like 21 Jump Street, it proves that there’s definitely a market for all those other giants of the small screen, quietly waiting in the wings, ready to take that final big leap into blockbuster territory. In fact, there’s so many of these already in active development, that this feature got more and more difficult to research as it went along, with all of the best ideas seemingly already snatched up.

So, from that other well-known Hasselhoff project, to some straight-up risky bids, here’s a collection of potential big money reboots that we could see »

"Silver & Black" Updates

25 May 2017 2:40 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sony has now greenlit, their 'bad girl' "Spider-Man" spin-off feature "Silver & Black",  starring the Marvel Comics characters 'Silver Sable' and 'Black Cat':

"Silver & Black" will be directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood ("The Secret Life Of Bees") rewriting Christopher Yost's screenplay.

'Black Cat' aka 'Felicia Hardy', was created for Marvel Comics by writer Marv Wolfman and illustrator Keith Pollard, debuting in Marvel's "Amazing Spider-Man" #194 (July 1979), as the daughter of a world-renowned cat burglar.

After suffering a traumatic event as a college freshman, she trained herself in various fighting styles and acrobatics and, after deciding to follow in her father's footsteps, adopted her costumed identity as the Black Cat.

Felicia Hardy also appeared in Sony's "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" (2014), portrayed by actress Felicity Jones.

'Silver Sable' aka 'Silver Sablinova', created for Marvel Comics by writer Tom DeFalco and illustrator Ron Frenz, debuted in Marvel's "The Amazing Spider-Man" #265 (June 1985).

Sony hires Gina Prince-Bythewood to direct Spider-Man spin-off Silver & Black

25 May 2017 11:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sony is really getting to work on their Spider-Man spin-offs. Just a few days ago they cast Tom Hardy and hired director Ruben Fleischer for Venom and now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, they’re fully moving forward on Silver & Black, the spin-off film featuring Spidey villains/anti-heroes Silver Sable and Black Cat. Sony has hired The Secret Life of Bees director Gina Prince-Bythewood to helm the spin-off.

The film will be separate from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. Much like Venom, it will exist within its own universe, although as yet there’s been no official word as to whether the two spinoff movies will connect with each other.

Silver Sable is a mercenary who has been an ally and antagonist to Spider-Man. Her primary goal is to hunt down war criminals and bring them in by any means necessary. Black Cat is, of course, »

Spider-Man Spin-Off Silver and Black Gets a Director and Release Date

25 May 2017 10:39 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony is doubling down on it's own version of the Marvel universe with the second installment to be titled Silver and Black, based on the Silver Sable and Black Cat comics. It will arrive after the first Smu movie Venom. Today, Sony has announced that they've secured a director for this female led superhero movie.

Gina Prince-Bythewood is officially on board to direct Silver and Black. She is best known for writing and directing The Secret Life of Bees. Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal will produce the movie. It will hit theaters in October 2018. Oddly enough, this is the same frame which Venom is scheduled to launch. Perhaps The Hollywood Reporter has the date wrong and they meant to say 2019?

Silver and Black is chugging along fast, and will begin shooting this fall. The movie has been in the planning stages for quite some time, going all the way back »

Gina Prince-Bythewood to Direct Marvel’s “Silver Sable and Black Cat”

25 May 2017 10:34 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Gina Prince-Bythewood: BFI/YouTube

Gina Prince-Bythewood is getting a superhero movie. Variety reports that the “Secret Life of Bees” writer-director has signed to to helm “Silver Sable and Black Cat.” She’ll also rewrite the script of the Marvel project, set to be produced by Amy Pascal (“Ghostbusters”) and Matt Tolmach (“The Amazing Spider-Man”).

“In the comic books, Silver Sable is a mercenary who runs a company that hunts war criminals. Black Cat is burglar named Felicia Hardy, who briefly appeared in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2,’ played by Felicity Jones,” Variety summarizes. “While both characters exist in Marvel’s ‘Spider-Man’ universe, Prince-Bythewood’s film will not be a crossover with the web-slinger.”

While the genre is still overwhelmingly dominated by men, it’s great to hear word of another big-budget female-centric comic book adaptation with a woman behind the camera. Patty Jenkins’ long-awaited “Wonder Woman” opens next week, and “Captain Marvel,” toplined by Brie Larson and co-directed by Anna Boden, is scheduled for release March 8, 2019.

Fortunately we won’t have to wait very long for “Silver Sable and Black Cat.” No word on casting just yet.

Prince-Bythewood co-created the Fox police drama “Shots Fired,” which just aired its final ep yesterday. Her other credits include 2014’s “Beyond the Lights” and 2000’s “Love & Basketball.”

With this project, Prince-Bythewood is likely to become the second woman of color to helm a film with a budget over $100 million. “Selma” director Ava DuVernay made herstory as the first with Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” set to bow March 9, 2018. The only live-action women-directed film that’s been released with a budget in this range — so far — is Kathryn Bigelow’s “K-19: The Widowmaker,” which opened in 2002. Upcoming films helmed by women with budgets in the $100 million-plus range are of course “Wonder Woman” and “Captain Marvel” as well as Niki Caro’s “Mulan.”

We don’t have confirmation that “Silver Sable and Black Cat” will have a budget over $100 million, but given the budgets of past super hero movies, we’d be surprised if it didn’t.

So, chances are, in the near future will see the release of two $100 million-plus studio films helmed by women of color, “A Wrinkle in Time” and “Silver Sable and Black Cat.” This is huge news.

DuVernay has described Hollywood as “a patriarchy, headed by men and built for men. To pretend like Hollywood is anything other than that is disingenuous,” she observed. “#OscarsSoWhite is trendy, but for women filmmakers and filmmakers of color, it’s not a trend. This is our reality, and it’s important that we do something to change it. We have to find new ways to work without permission, new ways to turn corners and go through doors that are closed off to us to create our own audiences and our own material independently.”

Hollywood is in serious need of a makeover, and trailblazers like DuVernay and Prince-Bythewood are paving the way.

Gina Prince-Bythewood to Direct Marvel’s “Silver Sable and Black Cat” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Tom Hardy to play Venom in new Sony “Marvel universe” film; Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer to direct

22 May 2017 7:47 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

In what is perhaps one of the most surprising but equally exciting announcements of the year, Sony Pictures (via their official Twitter) have this weekend made a huge step forward in their long-mooted Venom film with the news that a star and director have been found for the project.

Tom Hardy has been signed to star as the titular character, aka Eddie Brock, and returns to the world of comic-book villainy after his role in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises as the equally-bulky bad guy Bane. Hardy, who was also set to play Rick Flagg in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad before he had to pull out due to schedule conflicts with The Revenant, had been looking to re-enter the world of superheroes for a while now.

Joining him on the project is director Ruben Fleischer, the filmmaker behind such films as Zombieland and Gangster Squad, »

Tom Hardy Is The New Venom!!!

19 May 2017 12:52 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Even though the character was grossly mishandled in the god-awful Spider-Man 3, Sony Pictures have been trying to get a spin-off for fan favourite villain Venom for years now. The Hunger Games director Gary Ross was eyed to take the helm in 2007, and while no real word has been given as to why the project fell, you have to believe the poor critical and fan reaction to Spider-Man 3 has to have something to do with it. The film was resurrected in 2013 as part of a shared universe stemming out The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but again, no dice. Now, Sony are hoping third time’s the charm with the announcement that Reuben Fleischer (Zombieland, Gangster Squad) will be serving as director for the movie that will be part of its own universe and not associated with Spider-Man: Homecoming, which the studio is co-producing with Marvel Studios. But the big news »

Tom Hardy Is Venom in Sony's Spider-Man Spin-Off

19 May 2017 12:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A movie based on Marvel Comics character Venom has been announced with Tom Hardy starring. The movie will be directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) with a fall 2018 release date. This is surprising news since we're still a good two months before Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters, but maybe Sony's standalone Marvel universe is taking a cue from Dceu in the announcement business. Fleischer was reportedly chosen for his ability to mix dark themes with humor in Zombieland and Hardy, holy cow. What a great choice to portray Venom. Hardy will now go from the DC Universe and into the Marvel Universe for this role.

Hollywood Reporter announced that the Venom movie is not a spin-off of the Marvel Spider-Man movie, it's actually the first movie after Spider-Man from its Marvel Universe of characters. Technicalities, everyone! We will see Oscar nominated Hardy's Eddie Brock have a relationship with the symbiote, which will »

Sam Raimi and Marc Webb reportedly pass on The Flash, Kevin Smith throws his baseball cap into the ring

17 May 2017 2:53 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last night it was reported that Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future), Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class) and Sam Raimi (Spider-Man) top Warner Bros.’ shortlist for the director’s chair on the DC solo movie The Flash, but it seems we may be able to scratch one of those names from the list.

According to EW, Sam Raimi has passed on the opportunity, as has The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb. Robert Zemeckis is thought to be the studio’s number one choice, although he is currently prepping a feature adaptation of the documentary Marwencol, which has him tied up until late 2018.

Meanwhile, it seems that Kevin Smith – who has experience with the Scarlet Speedster, having directed episodes of The CW TV show, has also thrown his hat into the ring…

I know of at least one Director who wouldn't pass. (But to be fair, »

The Flash Movie Hasn't Lost Billy Crudup, But Sam Raimi Passes

17 May 2017 1:59 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Flash movie just can't seem to catch a break. Warner Bros. has been on the hunt for a director ever since Dope helmer Rick Famuyiwa left the project over creative differences. Prior to that, Phil Lord and Chris Miller (21 Jump Street) were attached to direct, but they left to go do the Han Solo movie. Now it looks like a couple of former Spider-Man movie directors have officially passed on the job, with Sam Raimi (Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3) and Marc Webb (The Amazing Spider-Man, The Amazing Spider-Man 2) both reportedly saying no.

The news comes courtesy of Entertainment Weekly who are reporting that both Raimi and Webb were in contention, but they both decided against taking on The Flash for Warner Bros. In the case of Marc Webb, after what happened with The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it is understandable that he wouldn't want to jump right back into another seemingly rocky situation. »

Transformers: Bumblebee Spin-Off Logo Revealed

15 May 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A new trademark application from Hasbro has revealed the first official logo for the upcoming Bumblebee spin-off, which will continue the Transformers franchise in theaters next summer. The logo application was approved this weekend, and this is most likely just an early version of this logo, since there is no color scheme quite yet. This logo was described on the application as a "stylized design of a bee," which will be used for "toy action figures, toy vehicles and toy robots convertible into other visual toy form".

Tfw 2005 unveiled the logo over the weekend, although it isn't ultimately clear when we may see this logo in its official form quite yet. While no cast members have been announced, Travis Knight, who made his directorial debut with Kubo and the Two Strings last year, has signed on to direct this Bumblebee adventure, from a script by Christina Hodson (Gotham City Sirens).

How 'King Arthur' Was Killed by a Would-Be Franchise

Guy Ritchie has earned positive reviews and pleased moviegoers with films such as Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch and Sherlock Holmes. He has proved that he can apply his distinctive style and voice to a variety of genres, crafting strong narratives and compelling characters.

Why then are audiences not racing to see Richie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, which is officially summer movie season's first bomb?

Spider-Man: Homecoming on Target for Huge $135M Box Office Opening

13 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Things are looking good for the first solo Spider-Man movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only in terms of the quality of the movie, but financially speaking as well. Some very early box office tracking numbers have been revealed and, if they are even close to correct, Spider-Man: Homecoming will be a major financial success.

According to Box Office Pro, Spider-Man: Homecoming is eyeing an opening of $135 million domestically. That would be a big improvement over Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which brought in $91 million on its opening weekend back in 2014. The movie ultimately went on to gross $708 million worldwide which, on paper seems quite good, but for a Spider-Man movie, wasn't all that great. The movie also wasn't received very well by fans or critics, which certainly had a big effect on the box office. That will likely be the case this time around as well. If the »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Clip From MTV Movie Awards

8 May 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Awards shows are usually boring affairs. It doesn't matter who's putting them on, it is guaranteed to be a three to four hour snoozefest that only people in the industry will love. Like anything though, there may be moments during the show that may end up being noteworthy and worth discussion and the MTV Movie Awards have given us just that.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is expected in theaters this July and what better time to start getting the masses excited for the movie than during an award show? The scene in question is a simple one. Peter Parker as Spider-Man arrives home and is caught by his friend Ned Leeds. The scene speaks for itself but for my money, is a great harbinger of things to come from this movie.

Sony Pictures was in quite the pickle after The Amazing Spider-Man 2 failed to wow audiences. The movie, despite the effort of everyone involved, »
