With Thor: Ragnarok currently sitting atop the international box-office — and Justice League looking to take that spot next weekend — Sony are champing at the bit for some superhero action.

Earlier this year, the studio released Spider-Man: Homecoming, a collaboration with Marvel Studios that saw Peter Parker join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

However, the studio are now looking to create their own cinematic superhero universe, one formed of Spider-Man characters but not actually featuring Spider-Man and titled Sony’s Marvel Universe.

First off, there’s Venom, the Tom Hardy-starring flick that began filming earlier this year. Then there’s Silver & Black, which centres on the superheroes Black Cat and Silver Sable and will be directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood. No casting has been announced.
