It seems Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, which is not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is in full swing. With Venom and the animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse nearing release, and Silver & Black, Nightwatch and Morbius the Living Vampire in pre-production, the company is said to be eyeing another spin-off focusing on Korean-American superhero Cindy Moon, aka Silk.

For those who don’t know, Silk is a fairly new character, a creation of acclaimed The Amazing Spider-Man writer Dan Slott, who was bitten by the exact same radioactive spider that turned Peter Parker into Spider-Man.

While Spider-Man is currently appearing exclusively in films produced by Marvel Studios, there are rumours that Tom Holland’s version of the character could return to Sony after the Homecoming films.

Of course, the character has already shown up in the Spider-Man Universe. Cindy Moon, who was played by Tiffany Espensen, appeared in Spider-Man: Homecoming as one of Parker’s classmates. While it was a minor role, the actress could reprise her role as the titular character in Silk.

    • No, totally different character. She was introduced in 2014 I think. Her history is intwined with Peter’s. Makes me worried what Sony will do with her origin. Especially since she forms part of the mystical side to Spider-Man.

    • I’d be cool if they did the mystic side. Maybe as a follow-up to the Miles Morales animated that’s coming soon. But then I want them to properly cover Ezekiel’s history and the ‘Coming Home/Until The Stars Turn Cold’ arc.

      Exactly, that’s why I’m more concerned than excited about this. Sony’s handling of Spider-Man just keeps proving to me why they’re they all belong with the MCU. The tones of those movies actually falls in line with the tone of the comics, while Sony has always tried to make the darker aspect the focus of the story. And I worry because of their creative decisions with the previous Spider-Man films, especially 3 and ASM 1 & 2. They’re probably going to skip her origin for all we know to avoid how she ties in with Spider-Man, and more specifically, the mystical villains that are involved with that story. Is this how Morlun finally comes to the screen? I’m so disappointed.
