Producers Provide An Update On The Silk Spider-Man Spinoff Series
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the executive producers, provide an update on the Silk Spider-Man spinoff TV series based in Sony's Marvel Universe
Originally conceived by Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos, the heroine made her Marvel Comics debut with a faceless appearance in 2014's The Amazing Spider-Man No. 1 before making her formal debut two issues later. Cindy Moon was Peter Parker's classmate who was bitten by the same radioactive spider, but she gains organic webbing abilities and is imprisoned by Ezekiel Simms after being trained to control her powers, with Spider-Man later assisting in her release and defeating Black Cat and Electro with her assistance.
Cindy Moon made her live-action debut in Spider-Man: Homecoming in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, just a few years after making her comics debut, with Tiffany Espensen playing Parker's classmate and decathlon partner. Following a brief cameo in Avengers: Infinity War, numerous ideas for future Silk appearances were placed in the works, including a live-action series based in Sony's Spider-Man Universe. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller provided some insight into their Marvel futures when talking on Deadline's Crew Call podcast. When questioned about the live-action Spider-Man spinoff series Silk, the executive producers were tight-lipped about specifics, but did reveal that more information about the program will be released soon. See what the pair had to say about it below:
"We're developing all that stuff with great care and there's a really exciting start for Silk. It's coming along. There'll be news someday soon."
The live-action Silk series isn't the only project in the works for the character, as she's also scheduled to star in a Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse spinoff feature. The film is believed to be a female-focused narrative centering on three generations of Spider-Women, featuring Hailee Steinfeld's Gwen Stacy/Spider-Gwen and Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman, who will be voiced by Issa Rae in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. With over a year having passed since the Ash vs. Evil Dead co-creator agreed to oversee the project, it is probable that the next update will be a casting announcement of who will play Silk.
