Sony has set a 2021 released date for an untitled Marvel film.
In 2018, Sony released the box office hit Venom and officially launched its Universe of Marvel Characters. While Sony will continue its Universe of Marvel Characters with Morbius and a sequel to Venom, there has not been any official word on what the studio has planned for its cinematic universe aside from those two projects.
Now, Exhibitor Relations Co. 2 reports Sony has set a October 8, 2021 release date for an untitled Marvel film. Though the project wasn’t revealed, Sony is said to be developing movies focusing on Kraven the Hunter, Silk and Silver Sable, among other characters.

Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.
