Sony is reworking the script for Silver & Black and have hired Captain Marvel and Chaos Walking scribes to do so. Sony is looking to capitalize on the revitalized interest in Spider-Man, but they are doing their own thing without Marvel Studios’ supervision. Whether or not these movies do connect to the MCU remains to be seen, but Venom kicks things off later this year – and the Venom trailer wasn’t a huge hit.
That is hardly the only project the studio is developing, with an all-female team-up movie starring Silver Sable and Black Cat up next. Gina Prince-Bythewood is set to direct the movie, which is due to start production next month. How firm that start date is isn’t clear, but the hiring of two more writers could point to a potential delay.

THR reports Sony has hired Captain Marvel writer Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Chaos Walking writer Lindsey Beer to pen the latest draft of the script. The move comes after Prince-Bythewood wrote an early draft herself, followed by Chris Yost and Lisa Joy taking a pass. Robertson-Dworet also worked on the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot, while Beer has spent plenty of time in big writer’s rooms for Transformers, Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek, and more.
