A Silver Sable Spider-Man spin-off movie may also be happening.
When asked, in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Sony Pictures Chairman, Tom Rothman, said they plan to continue their working relationship with Marvel and still want a shared Spider-Man universe.
Since you teamed with Marvel, do you plan to make a whole Spider-Man universe? Do you have plans for more work with Marvel?
Yes to both those questions. It’s been fantastic, our relationship with Marvel.
That’s not the only news. At the 16:25 mark of the newest episode of Meet the Movie Press, The Wrap’s Jeff Sneider said that Sony has been in talks with screenwriter Abi Morgan, who wrote Shame and the Invisible Woman, in order to bring Silver Sable to the big screen. Jeff Sneider then said that emails from the Sony hack, from a few years back, revealed that there was interest in the character.

This isn’t the first time Sony has promised a Spider-Man shared universe. In December 2013, when The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was still a few months out, Sony said a shared Spider-Man universe was on the way. Besides future The Amazing Spider-Man movies, we were also promised a Sinister Six and a Venom movie. Plans eventually fell through, probably due to the box office reception of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 not being as good as the previous Spider-Man films. This resulted in the deal Sony made with Marvel. Sony was still working on the Sinister Six movie, with Drew Goddard attached, but they seemed to have abandoned that.
Would you all like to see a shared Spider-Man universe from Sony? I’m fine with, but I hope it would actually be set in the MCU. They didn’t confirm nor deny that, but I assume it won’t be. Sony said that if Spider-Man appears in the Venom movie they’re working on, Tom Holland will not be playing the character, which is just dumb.
