At a certain point, Sony’s Spider-Man-free universe is going to eclipse the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which actually has the web-slinger in it. Another project is in the works at Sony, making use of a character from the Spider-Man franchise. This isn’t a new movie, though. Instead, it aims to be a live-action TV show.
According to a report from Variety, Sony and Marvel are developing a series about Silk, otherwise known as Peter Parker’s Korean-American classmate Cindy Moon. Shockingly, she also gets bitten by a radioactive spider, which gives her special powers. In the comics, she was trapped for years in a secret bunker to protect her from a guy who hunts down spider-people, which is a long story in itself. She then becomes a superhero in her own right under the name Silk. The character was first introduced in 2014, in the comic book The Amazing Spider-Man #1. It’s also worth noting that it was reported in 2018 that a Silk movie was being developed.
Should the TV show become a reality, this will not be the first time Moon has appeared in a live-action project. Tiffany Espensen played a version of the character in Spider-Man: Homecoming, in which she was on Peter’s academic decathlon team. At this point, there’s no indication as to whether Espensen would reprise the role, which would link the project to the MCU.
