REPORT: New ‘Silk’ Casting Details Revealed for Amazon’s ‘Spider-Man’ Spin-Off
While Peter Parker is off dealing with a multiverse full of problems, Sony is hard at work on expanding its world of Marvel characters. Recently we got the news that Aaron Taylor Johnson will play one of the character’s most notorious foes, Kraven the Hunter. Of course, it doesn’t end there for Sony’s expansion plans. Some time ago, we learned that Sony had begun development on a live-action series surrounding another arachnid hero, who goes by Silk. The series has yet to make any headway in recent months, but it seems like the production is avidly searching for its lead.
A new rumor from the Illuminderdi offers some details on the character. We know they are actively embracing the character’s heritage, as they are looking for a Korean-American actress in the age range between 19 to 29 years. The breakdown describes the character as “an indomitable spirit who can’t help but care”. The description continues talking about how she is “smart, self-assured, funny but tries to please everyone around her.” She even is highlighted to have a “predilection for extreme empathy.” They also reveal that the series is eyeing a February 2022 production start and will consist of eight episodes.
Details on this project remain scarce, as it’s currently unclear just where and when this series takes place. A character named Cindy, played by Tiffany Espensen, who many believed to be Moon currently plays a minor role in the Spider-Man films from Sony and Marvel Studios. She briefly appears in Homecoming. It seems now that is definitely not the case unless this series is set within the Sony that characters like Venom and Morbius currently find themselves in. Hopefully, these questions will get answered once more details arrive for the Amazon series.
