Sony sets release dates for Silver & Black, Sicario 2 and more

On one hand, the idea of Spider-Man villains showing up without Spider-Man is an idea that just won't go away.

That release date is interesting for a couple reasons; first off, it's now scheduled to be the first superhero movie release of 2019, which will surely be another busy year for the genre.

This week, Sony Pictures announced a release date for another film in its planned Spider-Man spin-off film universe.

Now that there's a release date, odds are casting will be announced fairly soon.

However, because of the underwhelming box office performance of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, those plans fell through and left Sony reaching a deal with Marvel Studios to reboot the character within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Beyond the Lights director Gina Prince-Bythewood is slated to direct, but we have no details on the story just yet.

Retailers slid after department stores Macy's and Kohl's both said same-store sales continued to decline in the second quarter. Shortly after this announcement, North Korea said it was "carefully examining" the idea of a missile strike on Guam, a U.S.

In the comic books, Silver Sable is a mercenary who runs a company that hunts war criminals.

Bad Boys for Life, the Joe Carnahan-directed third installment in the Bad Boys franchise, has been taken off of Sony's schedule for now after being slotted for November 9th, 2018.

Next, Sony Pictures also brought some bad news for Bad Boys fans eagerly awaiting a reunion of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. The movie has been pushed back several times now, and it's starting to feel like a pipe dream rather than a project that will actually happen.

Columbia Pictures also confirmed that Anne Hathaway will star in Barbie (news she was in talks for the role broke last month) and has moved the film back a few weeks to August 8, 2018 (it was previously set for June 29, 2018).

Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin are set to return with Stefano Sollima taking over as director. Unfortunately, they won't have an official new Spider-Man movie to help them, but maybe Venom will work out for them instead.
