Spider-Man Spin-Off Silver Sable and Black Cat Is Happening

Spider-Man Spin-Off Silver Sable and Black Cat Is Happening
Last week, Sony Pictures handed out a 2018 release date for their new Venom spin-off that will expand the studio's Spider-Man universe, although it will not be connected to Spider-Man: Homecoming. Today we have word that the studio is expanding this universe even further, developing a new spin-off that will feature the popular female characters Silver Sable and the Black Cat. The studio has brought on screenwriter Christopher Yost to write the script, building on a previous script that was originally worked on by Westworld co-creator Lisa Joy.

The Hollywood Reporter doesn't reveal any specific story details, but it does indicate that the studio wants to find a director soon, eyeing a fall production start date. Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal are producing the project, which was previously known as the "secret female spinoff project." While Sony Pictures has a shared rights deal with Marvel Studios for the main Spider-Man character,

'He-Man' Movie Recruits Marvel Writer

'He-Man' Movie Recruits Marvel Writer
Sony Pictures has brought on Thor: Ragnarok screenwriter Christopher Yost to take a crack at the Masters of the Universe script, according to a new report at Variety. The project has been in development for years, but fans hoped that it may finally get off the ground earlier this year, when the studio released a new Masters of the Universe logo, and it was revealed that Jeff Wadlow's (Kick-Ass 2) script was complete. It seems the studio is going back to the drawing board with yet another writing coming on board.

The franchise is set on the planet Eternia, following a young man named Adam who has the power to turn himself into a mighty warrior named He-Man. Adam becomes the planet's last hope to defeat the evil Skeletor, who has devastated the entire planet on his quest to conquer castle Greyskull. It isn't known how much the plot

Well, it seems that Marvel's Phase Three is starting to take shape. Earlier this week it was announced that Captain America: The Winter Soldier directing duo Anthony and Joe Russo are developing Captain America 3, and now Marvel has revealed that veteran Marvel writers Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle will pen the screenplay for Thor 3.

2013: The Best So Far - Comic Books

Anghus Houvouras on the best comic books of the year so far....

Hard to believe, but the year is half over.  So far it's been a great year for comics.  Sure, there have been some disappointments.  I'm looking at you Age of Ultron.  For the avid comic reader, there are great titles to be found.

The mainstream publishers have benefited greatly from recent reorganizations.  While not everybody has been in love with DC's New 52, their characters have felt more energized than they have in ages.  And the Marvel Now! retooling has been a creative home run delivering some of the most consistently excellent titles hitting the shelves each month.  The smaller publishers haven't been slouching either putting out a run of offbeat and unique titles that are rivaling the best runs of the independent era of comics.  So here, in no particular order, the ten best comics of the first half of the year.

Exclusive: Artist Ryan Stegman Talks The Superior Spider-man, Scarlet Spider And More

After launching a new Scarlet Spider ongoing series with writer Christopher Yost and a team-up with Jonathan Hickman during his critically acclaimed Fantastic Four run, artist Ryan Stegman is now facing perhaps his greatest challenge yet. Next January will see the release of issues #1 and #2 of Dan Slott's The Superior Spider-Man and it is Stegman who will be providing his incredible artwork for both those and the third instalment the following month. When plot details for Amazing Spider-Man #700 were leaked, they were understandably met with a great deal of upset and scepticism from fans. However, now that the issue has actually gone on sale, the reaction has been overwhelmingly positive (as you can see from my 5* review by clicking Here). Regardless, with a bold new status quo now firmly established, it falls to Slott and Stegman to continue the story of the new Spider-Man. The latter was

Exclusive: Christopher Yost On The Creative Process Of Avengers: Emh

Christopher Yost has become a famous name in the comic book world, working on animated television shows such as Wolverine And The X-Men, Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, and Fantastic Four: World's Greatest Heroes. At the moment, he writes Scarlet Spider, which recently took place in the Minimum Carnage comic event. Yost will very soon take over Avenging Spider-Man, so keep on a lookout for that book. A while back, Christopher Yost agreed to answer some questions on the creation of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, Scarlet Spider and much more. In the beginning, how did you and the rest of the team set the tone that Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes would have? Did you ever try for a darker approach? Never! The Avengers was never about 'dark,' and we had no interest in doing that anyway - especially after coming off Wolverine and the X-Men, a show which while we loved,

Comics: First Details And Artwork For The Superior Spider-man Revealed

USA Today have revealed our first look at The Superior Spider-Man. The relaunched series will replace The Amazing Spider-Man after issue #700 hits stands on December 26th. Whatever happens in that landmark issue will result in a very new direction for Peter Parker, with the site describing it as, "a far darker Spider-Man than fans have ever seen." "The one thing that does not go with this Spider-Man is the term 'Friendly neighborhood,'" says series writer Dan Slott. "I've always been the omniscient hand that's been protecting Peter Parker and Spider-Man, and not letting anything too bad happen to him. And now I've become this cruel god. There's something exciting about that, about going, 'Mwah-ha-ha-ha-ha, here is what's going to happen to you, Spider-Man!' And it's drastic and it's big and it's exciting and it's never been done before." As well as Humberto Ramos and Giuseppe Camuncoli, Fantastic Four

Marc Alan Fishman: You Better Think

  • Comicmix
I don’t own a single Spider-Man comic. Wait, scratch that. I own some painted comic released in the mid-aughts… Secret War. Didn’t care for it.

That being said, I love Spider-Man. I loved his cartoon in the 90s. I loved the Sensational Spider-Man cartoon even more. I owned Maximum Carnage for the Super Nintendo. I played about 8000 hours worth of Spider-Man 2 for the original Xbox. So, with all the love I have for the character, why don’t I subscribe to a single web-headed book? Well, consider it a barrier to entry. Never found the right jumping on point.

Until now. Dan Slott’s upcoming in-book epic “Ends of the Earth” looks to be as good a point as ever to jump on. Given my recent love affair with the Fantastic Four… I figure why not roll the dice on the House of Mouse one more time.

Catwoman Revealed, Plus Bane And Wonder Woman In Today's Twitter Report

An epic week of character reveals concludes this week with "The Dark Knight Rises" rolling out its first pic Anne Hathaway as Catwoman. Her long hair may have rubbed a few people the wrong way, but Jamie McKelvie is optimistic. Chuck Bb? Not so much.

In other tweets, Jim Lee sounded pleased with Henry Cavill's first public Superman still. His perspective, a defense of Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man switch-up, and a Wonder Woman TV pilot review made today's recap.

I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for August 5, 2011.

Catwoman pt. 1: @McKelvie Anyone consider that maybe that shot of Selina Kyle is from *before* she's properly Catwoman?

Catwoman pt. 2: @chuckbb I know it will be great, but every image I see from Dark Knight Rises makes me think it will be a terrible thing.

Updates on the passing of Dwayne McDuffie, gifted animation and comic book writer

Cbr (www.comicbookresources.com) provided this Update on the passing of multi-talented comic book and media writer Dwayne McDuffie yesterday afternoon:

1:25 Pm Pst: Cbr has learned that McDuffie died from complications due to a surgical procedure performed Monday evening.

I didn’t find out about this until close to midnight last night and yelled out in sheer horror. It really threw me for a loop. Like S&A commenter Skyvolt said in the previous McDuffie post, he didn’t cry about lack of Black characters, he did something about it. Weird, I was just watching All-Star Superman yesterday and was looking forward to the new Static monthly book (though not written by him) to come out in a few months. Man, I’m still shocked, no dumb pun intended. Only Jam Master J’s passing threw me for more of a wallop.

The Pull List Comic Reviews: ‘Dark Avengers’, ‘Green Lantern Corps’, ‘Hulk’ and More!

Welcome to another edition of The Pull List Comic Reviews! The fall of the Hulks begins, Mogo dishes out his brand of justice and both Geo-Force and the Sentry lose their marbles. As always, Warning: Spoilers Ahead.

Pull Of The Week:

Dark Avengers #13

Marvel Comics – $3.99 Us

Writer: Brian Michael Bendis

Artist: Mike Deodato

Score: 8.5/10

The Marvel Universe has seen better days. While the disassembling of Earth’s mightiest heroes led to the breakout of a civil war, a secret invasion became the catalyst to Norman Osborn’s dark reign, and with the siege of Asgard on the horizon, surely things couldn’t get worse (see what I did there?), could it? The Sentry’s true origin is revealed, answering once and for all that, yes, things can get worse…much worse.

Just when I thought all the pieces were on the table, Brian Michael Bendis takes the much-maligned Sentry and turns him loose.

Marvel writers excited about arrival of 'shared universe' in Avengers movie

While we have seen superhero teams on screen before in X-Men and Fantastic Four, we've not yet seen several heroes crossing over from their own films into one ensemble movie.

This will happen in The Avengers, the 2012 Marvel Studios team-up movie bringing together Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth's Thor, Captain America, Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury and possibly Hawkeye, Edward Norton's Hulk, Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow and others.

Staff at Marvel Comics are excited to see how the concept of uniting all those characters will work on the big screen.

In an interview with Newsarama, several of them have given their views on the Avengers film.

Writer Brian Michael Bendis, who for five years has been the 'architect' of the Avengers comic, is part of the creative committee that consults on movies in development at Marvel Studios, including The Avengers.

He told Newsarama:
