Sony is Making a ‘Spider-woman’ Movie Starring a Korean-American Actress

A new Marvel superhero movie starring a Korean-American character is reportedly in the works at Sony Pictures.

Cindy Moon, who first appeared in 2014’s “The Amazing Spider-Man #1,” is a student in Peter Parker’s class present in the public demonstration of the safe handling of nuclear laboratory waste materials.

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.”

“Silk” appeared on the big screen in last year’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” played by Tiffany Espensen. The same actress reprised the role briefly in “Avengers: Infinity War,” according to Deadline.

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.
