More #BlackGirlMagic in the making!
Gina Prince-Bythewood has been tapped to direct the upcoming Marvel flick Sable & Black, according to Deadline. The film is based off the character Silver Sable & Black Cat of Spider-Man fame.
Here’s a little background on Silver Sable and Black Cat via Deadline:
Silver Sable is a mercenary who runs a company that hunts war criminals while Black Cat is an acrobatic cat burglar (real name Felicia Hardy), who had a tangled romantic relationship with the webslinger in the Spider-Man comics. Both were antagonists and allies to Spider-Man.
However, this isn’t Prince-Bythewood’s first time at the rodeo. The super-director (Love & Basketball, Beyond The Lights, etc.) just directed the pilot for Marvel’s upcoming Cloak & Dagger series on Freeform.
Gina is currently on a role! She also just completed the first season of the racially charged drama Shots Fired, which received rave reviews.
