To compete with the growing Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, Sony has launched it’s own Spider-Verse universe. The universe’s first movie will be next year’s Venom. It then will be followed by Silver & Black, another Spider-Man side character film, whose filming will start next year in Atlanta.
Silver & Black is now in the pre-production stage, The movie will center around Felicia Hardy/Black Cat and Silver Sablinova/Silver Sable. So far, there have been no casting announcements.
There is an expectation that the spin-off will begin filming once Venom wraps production in February, but we haven’t uncovered a production start date yet. The Untitled Spider-Man 2 is on track to begin filming starting in June, which gives the impression Silver will wrap around that time.
Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love & Basketball) is signed on to direct. She also co-wrote the script with Lisa Joy (Westworld) and Christopher Yost (Thor: Ragnarok).

And as it looks like, Sony isn’t planning to stop anytime soon now. They are retrying to create their universe with full force after the failed attempt with The Amazing Spider-Man.
