The female superhero movie that Sony hinted at way back in 2014 — where does all that time go? — turns out to be centered on Silver Sable and Black Cat, a pair of Marvel characters in the Spider-Man universe, Mashable has confirmed.
And according to The Hollywood Reporter, which first reported the news Wednesday, the latest treatment (based on a previous draft written by Westworld co-creator Lisa Joy) is being written by Chris Yost, who recently wrapped Thor: Ragnarok.
Translation: They’re finally getting sorta serious about this project.
