Live-Action ‘SILK’ Series in Development by Sony
Last year it was revealed that Sony hoped to join into the superhero series game by signing the creative duo of Phil Lord and Chris Miller to a 5-year deal to develop series based on their library of Spider-Man characters. It’s been all quiet on that front since…until now. According to Variety, Lord and Miller have their first project lined up in a live-action series focusing on the character Silk.
First appearing in 2014, Silk stepped unto Spidey’s life in a major way when his famous origin story was retconned to include a second bite victim for the radioactive spider. Cindy Moon, a high school student attending the same demonstration as Parker, was bitten in the ankle by the spider just moments after it bit Parker. Moon developed her own series of super powers but remained hidden in a bunker for 13 years until just before the “Spider-Verse” event.
Lord and Miller are working with Korean-American writer Lauren Moon to develop the project which is reportedly being pursued by Amazon. No word yet on a potential timeline for release.
