Created by Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos in 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man, Cindy Moon – aka Silk – is the second victim of the radioactive spider that bit Peter Parker. She was held captive by little-known “Spider-Man” enemy Ezekiel Sims for several years. In particular, Ezekiel is associated with a centuries-old secret organization called the Spider Society, from which the series may have taken its name. The character of Cindy Moon has a brief cameo appearance in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
A “Silk” Sony project was announced back in 2018, though no creatives were attached until it was revealed to be a 2020 TV series (per Variety). Back then, Atypical’s Lauren Moon was reportedly being considered to write the series, with Amazon’s Tom Spezialy (“Ash vs. The Evil Dead”) serving as showrunner. Both seem unconnected to the project in its current form.
Sony Spider-Verse live action has canceled or otherwise indefinitely suspended several Spider-Verse projects in the past. However, given the names attached and Amazon Prime Video’s previous superhero successes in The Boys and Invincible, it seems likely that the series will make it across the finish line in something close to its current incarnation.
