Peter Parker wasn’t the only one bit by a radioactive spider. Straight out of Marvel Comics, Cindy Moon, also known as Silk, will soon star in her own live-action television series produced by Sony.
Reported by Variety, Sony is currently developing a live-action television series centered on the character Silk, who was introduced in the 2014 Spider-Man story Spider-Verse, the same one that influenced the 2018 Oscar-winner Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Silk falls within Sony’s ownership of the Spider-Man universe for film and TV adaptation.
Into the Spider-Verse producers Chris Miller and Phil Lord (the latter also penned the screenplay) will produce the untitled Silk series along with ex-Sony Pictures Entertainment head Amy Pascal. Variety also reported that Korean-American TV writer Lauren Moon, whose credits include the Freeform series Good Trouble and Atypical at Netflix, is in talks to write the script.
Here’s everything we know so far about the new Silk TV series, from potential release date to the comics you should read while you wait.
What is the release date for Silk?
There is no release date set for Silk. The series has yet to begin production. Normally, we’d try to speculate a bit here based on typical production schedules, but with the coronavirus pandemic still raging, it could be a while before anything starts filming.
Where is the trailer for Silk?
There is no trailer for Silk. The series has not yet started production, and a lead actor has not been cast. Therefore, there is no trailer to show right now. But come back soon, maybe in two years.
Where can I watch Silk? What streaming platform?
It is currently unknown what channel or platform Silk will end up. However, Variety reported sources saying Amazon is in negotiations to acquire the project as a streaming series. Furthermore, Amazon is also “in talks” regarding other unnamed Marvel/Sony projects, which could mean an influx of Spider-Man-centric TV shows with Silk possibly at the center. Will this be Amazon’s version of the Netlix/Marvel Defenders universe?
