More Spider-Man Spinoffs Are On the Way - Every Title in Development
Marvel may be in a drought for releasing upcoming content now, but that doesn't mean their hiatus won't come with good news to follow. Fans are eager to get their hands on Black Widow and are starved of new titles due to delays, yes, but there are some Spider-Man films that haven't been announced that are just as exciting.
Kraven is the popular choice for the next Marvel Cinematic Universe big-bad and is hoped to be seen squaring up with Tom Holland's Spider-Man soon. Sony is one step ahead of the game and already planning a project focused on Kraven the Hunter. There hasn't been a plotline or comic run that has been chosen to fuel inspiration, but Richard Wenk has signed on to write the script, with J.C. Chandor jumping on board to direct.
Black Cat will be flexing her claws soon, and on her own, as Sony's Silver and Black has separated from a team-up between Black Cat and Silver Sable into their own solo cinematic appearances. Due to the change in scheduling and the reworking of one film budding into two, there's still a factor of the unknown for Felicia Hardy's first on-screen appearance. Gina Prine-Bythewood was to direct Silver and Black and will remain attached to Black Cat.
Silver Sable will stand on her own two legs after parting ways as a counterpart in Silver and Black, but that won't stop her from emerging from her importance in the Insomniac Spider-Man game, and stepping onto the silver screen. It is unsure if Prince-Bythewood will stay with this project as well, but another female director will take up the film in her hands if she does choose to part ways.
Nightwatch is a name that creeps from the shadows, as he is one of the most obscure Marvel characters that will be taken under Sony's wing. Clad in nanotech, this vigilante's solo movie has been a glimmer in Spike Lee's eye since 2018, according to Variety.
Silk has already swung her way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe through blink-and-you-miss-it moments in Spider-Man: Homecoming and Avengers: Infinity War. Cindy Moon earned her fifteen minutes of fame and was played by Tiffany Espensen, but it is assumed that her proper film will pass the role to a different actress, who will bring Korean-American representation to center stage. Sony's caught another spider in their web with Silk on the way.
Face it, Tiger, you hit the Jackpot. An emerging superheroine, Jackpot is a rare, duel-identity wielding crimefighter that misleads fans into believing that she was Mary Jane Watson. Curiously enough, the alias is taken on by two: researcher Sara Ehret and the woman that admires her, Alana Jobson. Besides Variety reporting the film's development, not much has been many updates announced quite yet.
Madame Webb is an odd choice, though that doesn't stop Morbius writers Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless for moving right ahead with their next project. Sony has signed on S.J. Clarkson to direct the film, which will mark this as their first female-led Marvel movie.
Spider-Woman is not an underused alias for Marvel as it has been passed around from Gwen Stacy, to Mary Jane Watson, to Jessica Drew. Olivia Wilde has been announced to direct Sony's Spider-Woman project, speculated by Deadline in more recent news.
No matter which title causes your spider-senses to tingle, Sony is stacked with their upcoming films for the foreseeable future. They also tease that they will expand upon these new characters, their stories, and introduce even more through television and other mediums.
