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.
