Sony Planning “Spider-Man” Spin-Off “Silk”

Sony Pictures has announced plans for “Silk,” another “Spider-Man” spin-off film based around the Korean-American heroine from the comics.

The character first appeared in “The Amazing Spider-Man” Vol. 3 #1 and is a high-school student named Cindy Moon who was bitten by the same radioactive spider that bit Peter Parker at a public exhibition on safe handling of nuclear materials.

The spider died right after, but Moon gained the same powers as Parker and became known to him thirteen years after he had already become Spider-Man.

Amy Pascal is set to produce the film which joins other “Spider-Man” ‘adjacent’ films on the way including “Venom” and the animated “Into the Spider-Verse” this year, and the likes of “Silver and Black,” “Morbius the Living Vampire” and “Nightwatch” currently in development.
