Cindy Moon, AKA ‘Silk’, could be the next Marvel superhero to get her own adaptation!
Sony has long been working on a “suite” of live-action TV shows for the Marvel characters they control, and have recently been in talks with Amazon about making these adaptations a reality. About a year ago, Sony announced that the first of these adaptations would be Silk. Lauren Moon, a writer on the Sony/Netflix show Atypical, will write it while it will be produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (producers of Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse).
These discussions are still in the early stages and have been marred by major issues that have yet to be resolved, according to sources.

Silk was first introduced into The Amazing Spiderman in April of 2014, and her own spin-off comic series was planned for July 2020, but delayed due to the COVID-19 virus. Silk is also one of the first adaptations where an Asian-American will be in the lead role. More and more Asian-American characters are coming to the forefront in comic book adaptations (such as Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain in Birds of Prey), but they’ve been resigned to more supporting or ensemble roles, meaning this is a huge win for representation!

We are still a long way away from this suite of television shows with Silk at the lead, but Marvel fans will have something new to look forward to – however long it takes.
