Korean-American superhero Silk may be getting her own movie adaptation.
Deadline reports Sony and producer Amy Pascal are in "early development" talks to bring the hero to the big screen.
Similar to Spider-Man, Silk, whose real name is Cindy Moon, was also bitten by a radioactive spider. (She also happens to go to school with Peter Parker as well.) Her powers include eidetic memory, shooting webs out of her fingertips (instead of her wrist like Peter), and Silk Sense (which is stronger than the Spider-Sense). Although she is faster than Peter, she has less strength than the OG Spider-Man.
This won't be the first time Silk (sort of) appeared in a movie though. Tiffany Espensen played the character in Spider-Man: Homecoming (she's one of the decathlon team members) and later reprised her role at the beginning of Avengers: Infinity War during the brief scene on the bus. Despite appearing in those two films, she has yet to show her super-powered alter-ego on the big screen yet.
Silk, who was created by Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos, first appeared in 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man Vol. 3 #1. With the film on the horizon, Silk will join a series of Marvel-licensed characters from Sony's universe including Venom, Silver and Black, Nightwatch, and Morbius, the Living Vampire. A few more Spider-Man characters will also be getting the film treatment later this year in the Miles Morales-led animated film, Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. It's slated to arrive in theaters on Dec. 14.
