Sony Pictures Is Reportedly Still Developing a Silver Sable Spider-Man Solo Film
We know that Sony Pictures has been keen on playing with some of the female characters in the Spider-Man universe. Over a year ago there was a lot of talk regarding an all-female superhero film that would include the likes of characters such as Spider-Girl, Black Cat, Silver Sable, Silk, and Firestar.
Then last week we learned that Sony is wanting to work with Marvel on other Spider-Man projects. It seems like one of those projects could center on the character Silver Sable. When Sony got hacked and all the e-mails were released, Silver Sable was one of the movies that were mentioned as being in development.
According to Jeff Sneider, who writes for The Wrap, the project is still alive and well. He revealed the news on the Meet the Movie Press podcast, and he also revealed that screenwriter Abi Morgan (The Iron Lady, Suffragette) is reportedly in talks to join the project. There’s not much more information than that, but it will be interesting to see how they build on the new Spider-Man universe with Marvel at the creative helm.
Silver Sable is an interesting character and is in a way relatable to Suicide Squad as she is the leader of a group of reformed criminals who work as mercenaries. If Suicide Squad is a success, I imagine Sony would want to jump all over this Silver Sable movie and get it rolling.
Silver Sable is a born leader and highly trained in martial arts and weapons use. She uses her training to lead a group of reformed criminals to an honest life working as mercenaries in her Wild Pack. Silver’s occupation is CEO of Silver Sable International, which is based in Symkaria - a small country in the Balkans. In combat she has been known to use a katana and a chai (a weighted projectile of her own design). She often uses this latter weapon to disarm or disable her foes.
Regardless of which Spider-Man characters get their own films, it will be cool to see the MCU continue to grow with more characters.
