In addition, Sony has officially scrapped the female driven Silver & Black film that was supposed to feature the Black Cat, a thief, and Sliver Sable, a ruthless mercenary. With 900 characters in the stable, calling the franchise a "Spider-Man Universe" is somewhat limiting.
Per Variety, we know Sony has already drawn up plans for Silk, Nightwatch, Morbius, Jackpot and Kraven the Hunter. For the record, that's the formal name given to Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters, which is due to kick-off this fall thanks to Venom.

He said he was still getting himself ready and was enjoying spending time with his children. After some coaxing and cajoling from fans, Bryant made a decision to change his tune.
But the million dollar question still remains: will Sony's Marvel movies connect with the MCU? But like all those aforementioned spinoffs, Spider-Man's possible cameo really hinges on the success of Venom, with Sony hoping to deliver a dark and grisly rendition of Marvel's most famous anti-hero.
The company has also set up a screenwriter for a movie based on Kraven the Hunter in The Equalizer 2's Richard Wenk, and is developing another movie based on the character of Nightwatch, for which it is now seeking a writer as well. We'll just have to see if fans are understanding about the compromise.
If you've been following Sony's SUMC plans (before it was known as the SUMC), then you may have noticed that there's one title missing in that list, and it's one that had seemingly been in development the longest. However, she will remain as a producer for the upcoming Black Cat and Silver Sable solo films. ". Any "Spider-Man" movie will carry a PG-13 rating because the wall-crawler is more family friendly, and if "Venom" is too dark and gory, it might preclude other film match-ups, not just with Peter Parker's alter-ego, but also with other members of the extended Marvel Cinematic Universe". Before Jake Gyllenhaal had been tapped as Mysterio for Spider-Man: Far From Home, I had been rooting like insane for Kraven to be the next Spider-Man movie villain. The film was dropped from Sony's release schedule back in June.
