Spidey Spin-Off “Silver & Black” Delayed

The second of Sony Pictures’ “Spider-Man” spin-offs, “Silver and Black,” has reportedly been delayed indefinitely reports That Hashtag Show.

The original schedule had the movie to begin filming at the beginning of March in Atlanta, taking over from where the first “Spider-Man” spin-off film “Venom” recently wrapped production.

Still, the holding pattern isn’t a surprise as the “Spider-Man” spinoff had yet to set a cast and very recently enlisted a pair of new writers – Lindsey Beer (“Chaos Walking”) and Geneva Robertson-Dworet (“Tomb Raider”) – to have a go at a new script.

Gina Prince-Bythewood, who remains onboard as director, penned the previous draft while Chris Yost (“Thor: Ragnarok”) and Lisa Joy (“Westworld”) also took a shot. The film reportedly remains a priority for the studio and it’s still slated for a February 8th 2019 release. That date will likely be pushed in coming months.
