The First Spider-Man Spinoff Movie Could Go In This Direction

Silver Sable was introduced in 1985's The Amazing Spider-Man #265. Hailing from the fictional European country Symkaria, she is a mercenary who hunts down criminals across the world with her team, the Wild Pack. While there have been instances where she's had to battle other superheroes, she's mostly been one of Spider-Man's allies over the years. She doesn't boast any powers, but is a skilled combatant, gymnast and weapons expert. Outside of the comics, her appearances include Spider-Man: The New Animated Series, The Spectacular Spider-Man, the Ultimate Spider-Man video game and Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions.

There's not enough information yet on whether this Silver Sable movie will actually move forward or is something that's simply being mulled over. However, in terms of build a Spider-Man-centric big screen world, using Silver Sable would be a way to feature an important protagonist who isn't gifted with spider-related abilities. It's also important to note that Sony president Tom Rothman recently said that while Sony has the "ultimate authority" over the Spider-Man related content, they're letting Marvel take the creative lead on these movies. Assuming that statement is also applicable to the spinoffs, that means that Silver Sable would have the potential to appear in other MCU installments if needed.

We'll keep you updated on there's any movement on a Silver Sable movie, but in the meantime, let us know if you'd like to see her lead a cinematic adventure in the comments below.
