Heroine has appeared in the Spider-Man comics and will now win a live-action series!
Late last year, it was revealed that Sony was developing a Silk Web solo series, in partnership with Amazon Prime Video. In the comics, the heroine is Cindy Moon, a girl who studied with Peter Parker and was bitten by the same radioactive spider as him, earning arachnid gifts and the ability to produce organic web on her own. fingers. Now we have possible information as to who will be able to play the heroine.
According to The Illuminerdi, Sony and Amazon have already defined a showrunner for the production. The website claims Sang Kyu Kim, producer and screenwriter of shows like Altered Carbon, The Walking Dead and The Legacy of Jupiter, has taken over the role. In addition to him, Phil Lord and Chris Miller (known for their work on Spider-Man in the Spider-Verse) are also expected to take over as producers.
However, the most interesting information concerns the casting. Illuminerdi points out that the studio is eyeing Korean-American actresses to play Cindy Moon, a character described as “a lover of the ’80s and’ 90s who learns to ignore her daily frustrations in fighting crime. She has to deal with her mixed ethnicity and her dual identity ”. For this reason, the studio would keep an eye on Adeline Rudolph for the role.
The website claims Rudolph would be a personal choice of Phil Lord and Chris Miller. So far, Adeline only has two roles on her CV. She played the witch Agatha in Sabrina’s Dark World, but was also in Riverdale as Minerva Marble. The two series are set in the same universe, although their characters are different. She would also star in an adaptation of the manga Tomie for Quibi, but the streaming service decreed the closure of its activities in December 2020, leaving the future of this production open.
There is still no release date for the Silk Web series, and we also don’t know if the project will connect in any way to current Spider-Man films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. . This is probably a project like Venom and Morbius, which are theoretically not canonical in the Marvel Studios franchise.
