Norman Osborn Rumored For Silver Sable & Black Cat Movie and More
If the rumors are to be believed, Sony is going all in with their Spider-Man Cinematic Universe.
A batch of rumors for the upcoming Silver and Black - Silver Sable and Black Cat - movie has hit the net, which mentions a slew of Marvel characters that Sony owns the rights to.
Slash Report has it from a source that the Silver Sable and Black Cat movie may feature:
Mendel Stromm (Robot Master)
Jessica Drew (Spider-Woman)
Kraven the Hunter
Charles Standish (OsCorp exec)
Rumored plot details for the Silver Sable and Black Cat movie include:
The movie takes place seven years after Mendel Stromm/Robot Master and his henchman, Scorpion and Tarantula, murder Silver Sable's father. Silver Sable is hired by the government to track down Felicia Hardy, aka the Black Cat, a master hacker and thief said to have stolen valuable secret information. Black Cat is currently in the" lawless and dangerous triple frontier area between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil."
Once there, Silver Sable enlists the aid of her old contact The Chamelon to locate Black Cat, but the government is not the only one looking for Felicia Hardy, as Black Cat has made a deal with the Robot Master to save her father from a Russian prison, and Black Cat has been genetically enhanced. Now Robot Master the mad scientist wants his prized experiment back because his financier (hinted at being Norman Osborn) wants a return on his investment.
It's noted no mention is made of Spider-Man or Peter Parker, which we can guess is because the character is currently on loan to Marvel Studios for Spider-Man: Homecoming, The Avengers: Infinity War, The Avengers 4 and Spider-Man: Homecoming 2. Spider-Man is currently set to return to Sony after the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel in 2019.
It's probably also a safe bet that if these rumors are true, that none of these characters will be appearing in the MCU or any of the Spider-Man: Homecoming movies.
Sony also has a Venom movie in the works starring Tom Hardy and the animated Miles Morale Spider-Man film.
