Sony continues to shore up plans for its Spider-Man-free Spider-Man Cinematic Universe, announcing today that it’s set a title and release date for the previously announced Black Cat/Silver Sable movie. Silver And Black—combining two of Spidey’s amazing friends (and their shared interests in kicking butt while wearing anatomically improbable skin-tight body suits)—will arrive in theaters on February 8, 2019. The studio’s Venom movie, meanwhile, is set for October 5, 2018; neither film is expected to feature Tom Holland’s Peter Parker.

Silver And Black is being directed by Love & Basketball director Gina Prince-Bythewood, who’s also reportedly involved with Freeform’s Cloak And Dagger series. The film will track the adventures of cat burglar Felicia Hardy (a.k.a. The Black Cat), and foreign mercenary Silver Sable (whose real name is “Silver Sablinova,” because sometimes comic books are kind of great).
