Could Silk be swinging onto a network or streaming platform near you?
According to Variety, Sony is developing a live-action TV series based on the Spider-Man universe character Silk. Sony, which owns the rights to the spidy-verse, hasn’t found a network or streaming home for the series, but is ramping up development.
Reportedly, Good Trouble writer Lauren Moon is negotiating to write the script. Phil Lord and Chris Miller–responsible for the Oscar winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse–are executive producing the show under their banner Lord Miller.
“The character Silk’s real name is Cindy Moon, a Korean-American classmate of Peter Parker’s. She was first introduced in the comic books in “The Amazing Spider-Man #1” in 2014. Like Parker, she is bitten by a radioactive spider, which gives her the ability to move at incredible speed, shoot webs out of her fingertips, and possess an advanced Spider-Sense (known as Silk Sense). Tiffany Espensen played the character in the 2017 film “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” It is unknown at this time if she would star in the series.”
