Sony has started developing a movie on Spider-verse character Silk.
The studio is teaming up with producer Amy Pascal, the former Sony Pictures Entertainment chief who also produced Spider-Man: Homecoming and the upcoming Venom movie, to give the heroine her very own movie.
The Marvel comics character Cindy Moon, aka Silk, is a Korean-American superheroine who first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #1 (April 2014). In the comics, Moon is one of Peter Parker’s classmates who is bitten by that radioactive spider mere moments after he is. She gains similar powers, although she can shoot webs from her fingertips, holds an eidetic memory, has a stronger Spide-sense than Peter’s, and is also faster than her fellow webslinger (but she isn’t as strong).
Tiffany Espensen played Moon in a brief turn in Homecoming, where she was seen as a member of the decathlon team. She reprised the role very briefly in Avengers: Infinity War, seen on the bus when Peter is forced to make a quick exit. There’s no word if Espensen is being eyed to play the part in the film.
Sony has yet to comment on the potential Silk movie, which goes into the works in a time where studios are looking to push diversity and inclusion in their films. Stay tuned as this one comes together.
