Our movie wants to honor the comics as close as we can tonally.

In addition, Sony has officially scrapped the female driven Silver & Black film that was supposed to feature the Black Cat, a thief, and Sliver Sable, a ruthless mercenary.

Join host and alien symbiote, Jessica Chobot, as she runs down a recent report out of Sony that expands upon "Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters".

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind "The Lego Movie" and "21 Jump Street", bring their unique talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style that's the first of its kind.

Other projects look to be part of Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters are movies based on Silk, Jackpot, and Nightwatch.

With the the highly anticipated comic book film, Venom, set to release fairly soon, Sony is gearing up for their own Sony's Marvel Universe.

In a lengthy report by Variety, it's revealed that Sony's upcoming Venom film will be the first step in spinning out a bigger series of films - internally dubbed Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters, or SUMC - which includes Morbius, Kraven the Hunter, Silk and more.

But if the anti-hero Venom finds enough compelled moviegoers, there is one Spider-Man property that seems inevitably destined for Sony to try to exploit ... and no, we're not talking about Spider-Gwen ... or Ghost Spider... or whatever Marvel is calling her these days.

The company has also set up a screenwriter for a movie based on Kraven the Hunter in The Equalizer 2's Richard Wenk, and is developing another movie based on the character of Nightwatch, for which it is now seeking a writer as well.

If you've been following Sony's SUMC plans (before it was known as the SUMC), then you may have noticed that there's one title missing in that list, and it's one that had seemingly been in development the longest. Silver & Black are headed to the big screen, too, but they've since been redirected to individual solo movies. If Venom is kept at PG-13, the studio believes there will be greater leeway in having characters cross over within the films.
