Here’s another one to add to Sony’s shared Spider-Verse…
Yes, as the headline suggests, fan favourite Silk is to get her own movie.
As per The Wrap, Sony is now developing just such a picture, with Amy Pascal set to produce the effort. Despite the Silver Sable and Black Cat team-up – Silver & Black – having recently been put on indefinite hold, plans are still afoot to expand the shared realm that Sony will kick off with this October’s Tom Hardy-headlined Venom.
For those not familiar with the Silk character, Cindy Moon is an American-Korean classmate of Peter Parker’s who just so happened to be bitten by the very same radioactive spider that had a nibble at Peter and gave him his powers. Cindy would actually develop the same powers as Parker, although she wouldn’t make herself known to him until thirteen years down the line.
The character was created by Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos, debuting in 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man Vol.3 #1. Since then, Cindy Moon has gone on to become a hugely popular figure amongst Marvel Comics fans.
As alluded to, Venom will launch a new shared universe of films based around Spider-Man-driven characters. Right now, the vampiric Michael Morbius is being lined up for his own solo movie, Spike Lee has been eying a movie based around tech-driven hero Nightwatch, and then there’s Silver & Black still technically in development, just on hold right now. Elsewhere, there’s also the animated Into the Spider-Verse picture on the way this December, with the Miles Morales version of Spider-Man to take centre-stage in that effort.
Expect more on Silk and all of these projects as they continue to develop.
