Sony Planning Silk Live-Action TV Series

Sony Planning Silk Live-Action TV Series


Jay Cochran - September 04, 2020
According to Variety, Sony is looking to do a live-action TV series based on Marvel's Silk character. Lauren Moon (Good Trouble and Netflix's Atypical) is in talks to write the series. Phil Lord, Chris Miller and Amy Pascal are set to produce and word is that Amazon is interested in possibly grabbing it for their streaming service. Silk, AKA Cindy Moon was a Korean-American classmate of Peter Parker who first appeared in the 2014 Amazing Spider-Man #1. Like Peter, she was also bitten by a radioactive spider which gave here abilities such as agility and the power to shoot webs from her fingertips. She also has her own version of the spider-sense, but she calls her's Silk-Sense.

Coincidentally Hasbro will seemingly be releasing a new updated Marvel Legends figure of the Silk character in the near future.

A "Silk" TV series would be even worse than the pathetic Inhumans series imo. Batwoman has way more name recognition than Silk & that bombed.

Inhumans was horrible, don't know how much that had to do with it being on ABC (even though I like Agents of Shield). If Spiderman was under Marvel and not Sony, and this show would be on Disney+, I would have more hope for it. Especially after all the other Marvel Disney+ shows that are coming out soon and would probably establish success of all those shows on that streaming service.

Forget the masses, there are comic fans who would ask Who?. (Marvel legends Citizen V reveal for example)

And Im all for giving other characters besides the A-squad a chance. To me it was no surprise when Iron Man, Thor, Cap and especially the Avengers shattered records when given the chance. Seems odd now but remember there was a time when studios wouldnt touch anything without Spider-Man and Xmen in their names.

so yes, give even Frog Man a chance at a tv show or movie. But dont be too shocked when the masses initially roll their eyes and ask Who?

Despite the fact being a new character she has over 25 solo issues which is actually better than many established characters. Also there is nothing wrong with using lesser known characters, it gives them a chance to shine

No, I get @Gigantor point. It seems like every studio is looking to grab any property they can and hope they can be successful. 

In the case of silk, you have a minor character they  want to center a tv show around. With minimal fan base it does seem to be a stretch.

I'm cool with this, love Silk , so as long as they can do it right, and it's not some cheesy WB like show for kids and teenagers then I'm willing to bite

I agree, I wouldn't mind it being something like a fish out of water show, were Cindy has to adapt to the modern day
