Marvel TV might be long dead—RIP Collider’s favorite angsty ninja-lawyer, Matt Murdock—but that doesn’t mean Marvel is done with TV. Variety reports that a live-action Silk series is in production, with Atypical writer Lauren Moon on script duties and Chris Miller and Phil Lord on board as producers.
“Silk” is the Spider-y alter-ego of Cindy Moon—created by writer Dan Slott and artist Humberto Ramos—a Korean-American classmate of Peter Parker who is also bitten by a radioactive spider, giving her the abilities to do whatever a spider can. The character made her live-action debut in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, played by Tiffany Espensen, who reprised the role briefly in Avengers: Infinity War. There were rumblings back in 2018 about Silk getting her own standalone feature film, along with the equally up-in-the-air Black Cat and Sable movie.
The Silk series, should it get picked up, would be the first effort on the TV side of Sony’s quickly-growing Marvel Universe. (Known to real ones as the SPUMC.) Outside of the two co-produced Spider-Man movies starring Tom Holland, these are strictly Sony joints, and include Venom—and its sequel, Venom: Let There Be Carnage—Morbius starring Jared Leto, a Jackpot movie from Marc Guggenheim, an untitled film directed by Olivia Wilde, and a Kraven the Hunter movie from J.C. Chandor.
