Sony is filling out its release calendar for the next two years, and today they’ve found slots for two of their most exciting projects. Black and Silver, the Spider-Man spinoff featuring characters Black Cat and SIlver Sable, is hitting theaters at the beginning of 2019, and Sicario sequel Soldado, which will see the return of Benicio Del Toro’s scary drug kingpin hunter, has been set for summer of next year.
When The Amazing Spider-Man 2 went down, it took Sony’s ambitious plans for an expanded Spidey universe down with it — including projects like super-villain spinoff Sinister Six. Thanks to a deal with Marvel that allows the beloved hero (and a few of his Avengers pals) to swing between the two studios, the franchise is getting back on track. While the success of Spider-Man: Homecoming proves the value of Marvel’s involvement, it’s also emboldened Sony to start spinning yet another ambitious web. Venom and Silver and Black are just the beginning.
