‘Silver and Black’ To Feature Some Of Spidey’s Oldest Villains
Silver And Black, a comic book film directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood featuring Spider-Man supporting characters Black Cat and Silver Sable, is set to showcase villains deep from within the Webhead’s mythos.
According to That Hashtag Show, the film will have a “Dirty Dozen” feel and will utilize characters from every corner of Spider-Man’s history, such as:
- Mendel Stromm/Robot-Master who in the comics was a man with cybernetic implants which granted him superhuman abilities. However, it is stated that the film will utilize him as a minor antagonist who builds exo-suits for supervillains.
- Anton Rodriguez/Tarantula, a character in the comics who used a variety of martial arts and blade-tipped shoes against the spectacular wall-crawler. In the film he will receive one of Stromm’s exo-suits, not much else is divulged about his role.
- Mac Gargan/The Scorpion who in the comics is a frequent Spidey adversary with a scorpion-like suit, his character doesn’t seem to differentiate much from his comic counterpart as he will also receive a exo-suit in the film and play a role in the final combat sequence.
- Dmitri Smerdyakov/Chameleon a disguise-wearing villain in the comics will serve as Silver Sable’s number one informant in the film.
- Finally, Lonnie Lincoln/Tombstone a superhumanly strong, albino crime lord in the comics will work as the lead antagonist in the film.
