Sony Pictures is developing a film based on another Spider-Man character. That character is Cindy Moon a.k.a. Silk! That's right! The Korean-American Marvel heroine is going to get her own film!
Silk is a fan favorite character that was created by Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos and she made her comic book debut in 2014 in The Amazing Spider-Man vol. 3 #1. For those of you not familiar with the character, here's a little background information:
Thirteen years ago, during a demonstration on the use of radioactive rays at a science exhibit, a spider was accidentally exposed to the radiation and absorbed large amounts of it. In its dying moments, the arachnid bit the nearest living thing to it, Peter Parker. As a result, the young teenager would gain amazing powers and become the amazing Spider-Man!
However, this was not the end; as mere moments after biting Parker, the spider bites another young student by the name of Cindy Moon.
Soon after, Cindy’s abilities manifested but she was unable to control them. Some time later, Ezekiel would approach the Moon family to offer his help and guide Cindy in controlling her newfound abilities. After six years since getting bit and training to use her powers, Cindy is locked up inside a facility by Ezekiel to protect her, and the other “spiders,” from Morlun.
I was hoping that one day we would see this character make her big screen debut! She's such a cool character and she is a perfect one to get her own film.
Amy Pascal is producing the movie and it would be a part of Sony’s universe of Marvel-licensed characters along with other Marvel Comics properties such as Venom, Silver and Black, Nightwatch, and Morbius the Living Vampire.
What do you think about Silk getting her own movie!? I hope they get a talented creative team to bring the character to life!
