Sony just announced the release date for the "Spider-Man” spin-off "Silver and Black" will be February 8, 2019.
The new female-led superhero film directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood, will center around comic book heroes Black Cat and Silver Sable.
Earlier this year, Sony had set the date for Tom Hardy's Venom, which will hit big the screen on October 5 of next year.

Black Cat and Silver Sable are two heroes that commonly show up in Spider-Man's world. Black Cat is burglar named Felicia Hardy, who sometimes allies herself with Spider-Man and shortly showed up in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2", acted by Felicity Jones. Silver Sable, also known for Silver Sablinova, is a mercenary who runs Silver Sable International that hunts war criminals. She also allies herself with Peter Parker.
Sony is undeniably banking on the popularity of Spider-Man after this summer's "Spider-Man: Homecoming" success.

The Spider-Man series gives Sony a way to compete with Marvel's blockbusters and a chance to build its own universe up. "Black Cat and Silver Salbe" is Sony's first attempt to launch a spin-off since the 2014 abortion of the "Sinister Six", Spider-Man villain spin-off. 
But confusion has arisen as the superhero universe that Sony is developing will be separating from Spider-Man and Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Sony's universe will not include the Avengers and Tom Holland's Spider-Man. Not to mention Marvel is planning to follow up "Homecoming" with two more new films. All Sony have are the characters and universe it created by itself.
