The ever-growing Spider-Verse at Sony has reportedly set another project in motion. ComicBook.com reports the series starring Marvel Comics’ Silk will begin filming in August. It was announced last year that the show was in development. The series is being eyed to land at Amazon Prime.
According to ComicBook.com, Discussing Film first reported the projected production date. The series is said to finish filming sometime in early 2022. The series is based on Marvel superhero Cindy Moon, a Korean-American woman living in Queens, New York. A spinoff from Marvel’s Spider-Man, Moon first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #1 and eventually fought alongside different teams including Agents of Atlas. Created by Dan Slott (Amazing Spider-Man Vol. 1, Fantastic Four) and Humberto Ramos (Strange Academy: First Class, Revelations), Silk‘s first solo issue debuted in 2015.
The series is being produced by Phil Lord (The Lego Movie, 22 Jump Street) and Chris Miller (Clone High, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs) as part of their overall TV deal with Sony Pictures Television, according to ComicBook.com. After the success of the Oscar-winning animated feature Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Lord and Miller and Sony committed to more spinoffs both in TV and film.
“We are so grateful to everyone at Sony Pictures Television for choosing to partner with us and expand our enduring relationship with the studio,” Lord and Miller said via ComicBook.com. “Together we aim to make groundbreaking work of the highest quality and integrity, and to place that work in convenient proximity to your eyeballs and earholes, wherever you may be,” the two producers stated via ComicBook.com.
According to ComicBook.com, Sang Kyu Kim (The Walking Dead, Jupiter’s Legacy) has been selected as showrunner as well as an executive producer. The titular role of Moon has not been cast, but Lord and Miller were rumoured to have discussed the character’s role with Adeline Rudolph (The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Riverdale).
