Gina Prince-Bythewood To Direct Sony's Silver Sable/Black Cat Movie

We may have all scoffed at Sony's non-Spidey Spider-Man cinematic universe plans, but they are definitely going about it the right way. First they managed to land Tom Hardy for their Venom movie, and now Silver Sable and Black Cat teamup flick just scored a talented director in Gina Prince-Bythewood.

Prince-Bythewood will direct what is being simply titled, Silver and Black, which is a pretty sweet title. She'll rewrite the script from Christopher Yost that centers on hired mercenary Silver Sable and thief Black Cat aka Felicia Hardy. Both have had interesting romantic entanglements with Peter Parker in the past, which could be fun if/when the character returns under Sony's umbrella fully.

It's kind of a surprising move for Prince-Bythewood if you go by her past credits, which includes Love & Basketball, Beyond the Lights, and The Secret Life of Bees. But she recently took a turn towards Marvel superheroes with the pilot to Freeform's Cloak & Dagger TV series.  Apparently Marvel liked what she did and decided to keep her in the fold, which hopefully means more work for her in the future.
