Sony and producer Amy Pascal, who developed and produced the multi-billion dollar SPIDERMAN film franchises including the recent SPIDERMAN: HOMECOMING (produced in conjunction with Marvel Entertainment), is developing a film version of SILK, whose secret identity is of Korean American high school student Cindy Moon.
More from Deadline Hollywood:
In the comics, Cindy is a student in Peter Parker’s class who also is bitten by a radioactive spider around the same time as Peter. She gains abilities similar to his, though she is able to shoot webs out of her fingertips, possesses an eidetic memory, and has advanced Spider-Sense (known as Silk Sense) far stronger than Peter’s. She also has less superhuman strength than him but is faster.
While this project will mark the first stand-alone feature for Cindy Moon, it wouldn’t be the first time she appears in the MCU. The character was seen in Pascal-produced Spider-Man: Homecoming (played by Tiffany Espensen) as a member of the decathlon team along with Tom Holland’s Peter Parker. In Avengers: Infinity War, Espensen reprises her role briefly when Cindy is shown on the bus with Peter when he plants a distraction in order to get into costume.
Details are being kept under wraps, and Sony is not commenting.
