A spinoff of Spider-Man: Homecoming and the second instalment in Sony’s Marvel Universe (an adjunct of the Marvel Cinematic Universe) after Venom, Silver and Black brings together Marvel characters Silver Sable and Black Cat in a heist adventure.
The rumored plot sees notorious thief Felicia Hardy a.k.a. Black Cat in an international action film that sees her hiding out near the border area between Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil after stealing important, secretive information. Now, several parties are after the Black Cat including Silver Sable, who was hired by the government, and who seeks information from Dmitri Smerdyakov a.k.a. Chameleon on Black Cat’s location.
Silver’s ultimate goal however is to get to main villain Mendel Stromm a.k.a. Gaunt – also searching for Black Cat – who experimented on Silver’s Symkarian people so we can start to see how and why the title characters will team up. Stromm, who may or may not have ties to Norman Osborn (another rumor), has since moved from genetic engineering to robotics and has outfitted two henchmen with exosuit enhancements: Anton Rodriquez a.k.a. Tarantula who gets his spiked feed, and returning from Spider-Man: Homecoming, Mac Gargan a.k.a. Scorpion (Michael Mando) who will get his iconic weaponized tail. Lonnie Lincoln a.k.a. Tombstone also has a small role as a henchman.
