There, she is bitten by a radioactive spider — the same arachnid responsible for Parker’s transformation — and gains incredible speed, organic webbing abilities, and an advanced Spider-Sense to become “Silk.”
According to Variety, the project is still in the early stages of development, with no director, writer or actors attached, however Amy Pascal is reportedly producing.
The new superhero appears to be the latest addition in Sony’s universe of Marvel-licensed characters, including “Venom,” “Silver and Black,” “Nightwatch” and “Morbius the Living Vampire,” The Wrap noted.
Sony has not yet commented on the project.
