You got to hand it to Sony, they are not going to stop trying to mine their Spider-Man rights for all that they are worth. But this time, they might have a prospect that might actually get somewhere.
Deadline is reporting that Sony will be adapting Spider-Man spin-off Silk to the big screen. The character was co-created by Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos in 2014’s Amazing Spider-Man #1 (as a cameo) and #4 (in full).
Silk is Cindy Moon, a Korean-American classmate of Peter Parker who was bit by the same radioactive spider that gave Peter his powers just minutes after he was bitten. Unlike Peter, she was not able to control her powers, and was taken in and trained by a man with spider-powers named Ezekiel. When Morlun, the supernatural entity that hunts spider-people, arrives on Earth, Ezekiel hides Cindy away to keep her safe. Eventually freed by Spider-Man, she adopts the identity of Silk and fights crime.
Silk has many of the same powers as Spider-Man, with a few differences. Her sense of danger is stronger and while she is not as strong, she is faster that Spidey. Her webs are organic and shoot from her fingers, and possesses a photographic memory.
The question of whether or not Silk is part of Tom Holland Spider-Man continuity and therefore the Marvel Cinematic Universe might have already been answered. Cindy Moon has already appeared as a minor character in Spider-Man: Homecoming and Avengers: Infinity War.
More on this as it develops.
