RUMOR: Sony Once Again Looking To Develop ‘Silver Sable’ Film With ‘Shame’ Screenwriter

Silver Sable HeaderIt appears that Sony is still looking to develop their own corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with their Spider-Man properties and there might be movement again on a project revealed during the leaks of the studio’s e-mails. On this week’s episode of Meet The Movie Press, Jeff Sneider revealed that he has heard that Sony is still interested in developing a Silver Sable film and are currently talking with Shame & The Invisible Woman screenwriter Abi Morgan about the project with hopes that she’ll pen the film’s script. No other details were revealed.

If you’re unfamiliar with the character, Silver Sable is an anti-hero/mercenary that have been closely connected to Spider-Man over the years as both foe and ally. The character doesn’t have any superpowers, so it could be that Sony is looking to develop something along the lines of a female led spy franchise. Perhaps something along the lines of Nikita?

While I’m sure there’s going to be some out there who won’t be too excited about this news, this potential franchise could definitely offer something different up when it comes to comic book films. With Marvel & Sony working together these days, there’s even the possibility that we could see a team-up between the character and Black Widow somewhere down the line. What do you think about this news? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

I write stuff. Sometimes.


    Uhhh, who?

      A character from the comic books… do you know what are those?

      • SAMURAI36

        Yep, sure do. I was being sarcastic, because Marvel seems to be digging the bottom of the barrel for characters to make into movies. There’s no reason whatsoever that this character needs their own movie. At least introduce her in a Spidey film, and give her some build-up. But moving an absolute unknown directly to a movie with no prep whatsoever, is a recipe for failure.

          Kind of like that Guardians of the Galaxy disaster.

          • Darthmanwe

            Thing is, Guardians is a pretty self contained space comic itself, and had the potential to be such a film.

            But Silver Sable? That’s like, a side character you reference to the comics in a Spiderman movie. Not really any sort of material or backbone to make a solo movie for her…

            Silver Sable cold have an interesting backstory that does not involve Spiderman at all. Explore that story, find an interesting aspect and exploit it. Set it in the same world, but don’t make it dependent. Who cares that she is not that well known.

  • Astrotrain

    Nobody cares.

    I remember her. I didn’t think she went with the Spider-Man rights. A movie would be fine but I’d rather her be a side character in another movie. I’m not too keen on “superhero” movies about characters with no special powers / skills / gear besides spy stuff. The same reason I don’t care about a Black Widow movie happening.

  • Hunterbergfeld

    Yes I live her, one of my favorite characters. I also want a black cat movie
