Sony Developing New Spider-Man Spinoff Silk

Kamala Khan joins the Avengers

"Venom" producer Amy Pascal and Sony (the studio she once ran) are working on a movie adaptation of the Marvel comic "Silk" about Korean-American superheroine Cindy Moon. Silk was first introduced in the Spider-Man line of comic books. Like Peter, she has enhanced strength and speed (she's not as strong as he is, but she's faster), and has an even more acute form of Spider Sense that she's dubbed "Silk Sense". But while Peter went on to battle evil as everyone's friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, Moon ended up being captured by a guy named Ezekiel Sims (who also has spider-powers, for reasons that are too convoluted to go into here) and stayed in an underground bunker for 13 years, only to emerge much to Parker's surprise.

After Sam Raimi's original take on the character and Andrew Garfield's stint as the web slinger, Spider-Man fans might have felt that a little bit of Spidey-fatigue was setting in after hearing the news that the character was going to be rebooted again with Tom Holland playing the beloved character. This title reflects what Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously confirmed about the 2019 sequel taking Peter Parker out of NY for a European adventure in London that will reflect the global aftermath of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4.

Jeff Sneider and Perri Nemiroff are here to give you their thoughts on this news and if they like this move as a next step for Marvel.

The accidental name slip for the new title was similar to his "accidental" Infinity War poster reveal.
