I would probably watch it. Jonathan Nolan's wife Lisa Joy (Co-creator of West World on HBO) worked on the script.
The current draft of the script was written by Chris Yost (Thor: Ragnarok)

Okay, first off, Silver and Black is a pretty good title. Second off, I'm already more hyped for this than the Venom movie. It'd be much easier for them to make this without using Spider-Man than it would be to make a Venom movie without Spider-Man. I'm assuming this is gonna be aiming for an R rating like Venom, correct?
I'd doubt it and probably hope not. Assuming that Black Cat isn't in her current sadistic mobster ode (and even then, R rating would be a stretch), I'd think more likely a PG-13 spy/caper film with a somewhat humorous tone. Based both on the characters as what I understand to be Yost's style.
But I'm definitely interested in this both in itself and way more than the Venom movie.

I certainly have no issues with this (I think it's dumb that Sony is trying to keep a Spider-Man film franchise going without a Spider-Man but that's not this movie's fault) and could be good. I'll definitely keep a look out for it.
I could see this as a mix between an action spy caper and a buddy cop film. Something like 48 Hours but with superheroes. If they play their cards right and don't screw this up, then they could potentially have a winner on their hands with this one.
I'm conflicted. I love both characters and have wanted to see them appear in films for years now. And them playing off of each other could be interesting.
But it's weird to have their first appearances be in a film that's NOT connected to Spider-Man. That seems like something that you do later on imo.
And hey, if leads to Marvel getting rid of her current awful characterization in the comics, then it'll be worth it.
Say what are the chances their gonna be sisters in this? :p
Doubtfully. It'll probably be more of a Thelma & Louise or Riggs & Murtagh type of dynamic. The thief and the mercenary and all that good stuff.
I was thinking, what if Silver had black hair in this while Felicia had platinum blonde hair to play up the visual contrast?
Silver hair is kind of Sable's thing.
Rumored plot details. It will supposedly include Jessica Drew and Kraven the Hunter, among others.
I highly doubt any of that is true.
I was about to say, all of that feels like wish fulfillment.
It's not a bad idea (although I agree with the wish fulfillment), but I kind of doubt it as well or at least would hope not, because Spider-Man is now in the MCU and while I don't fully understand how the rights work, I'd be surprised that they'd result in the "Spider-Man without Spider-Man" film using much of his core cast and none of those characters appearing in the MCU.
The other thing that makes me question it is that several of the details seem to be taken from things that were original to Spider-Man: The Animated Series, so either that was a big inspiration for the movie or whoever made this up was a fan of the show. I think the latter is more likely.

We already know that.
A caper film with Black Cat trying to crack Sable's security could be awesome. It works better for a professional thief like the Black Cat to be arrayed against someone like Silver Sable than it does to have her set against Spidey.
Venom and Silver & Black will be canon to Homecoming
A bit dissapointed. I was looking forward to seeing how they'd handle this without Spider-Man. I'll still see them at least.
Making a Spider-Man universe not connected to Spider-Man (or using a conflicting version of Spider-Man) is just about the stupidest move imaginable, so that's not shocking.
There are far stupider moves. Like making a bad movie regardless of whether or not Spider-Man is in it.
Which is why they did another reboot in the first place, if you recall. Making a new reboot with the intent of winning back viewers by promising you've gotten it right this time, and then turning around and trying to create a competing Verse of films that either contradict or have nothing to do with it, is the height of stupidity.
It's the business equivalent of getting a really bad infection in your leg, receiving treatment that saves it, and then cutting it off with a chainsaw in your garage just because.
I mean, we got two different Hercules movies in 2014. There are two tv shows starring Sherlock Holmes neither of which star Robert Downey, Jr. I really doubt the movie going public cares about this contradictory continuity stuff as much as you think.
And the thing they all have in common is none of them were made by the same studios and producers, just different companies who held the license or working with a public domain character. Because trying to compete with yourself is a stupid, counterproductive move, something even famously stupid Hollywood execs are smart enough to realize.

Scorpion will allegedly be one of the villains.
