Silver Sable, meanwhile, is depicted as both antagonist and ally to Spider-Man in the comics. Created by Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz in 1985, Silver Sable runs a company that hunts war criminals. Like Venom Carnage, the Black Cat and Silver Sable spin-off won’t be related to the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. Rather, it will be developed based on the overall franchise and Sony’s Marvel’s Spider-Man universe.
