Spectacular news, Spider-Man fans!
Marvel and Sony Pictures have joined forces with Amazon Studios to bring several Spider-Man TV series to Prime Video.
As Variety reports, Amazon has commissioned several live-action Spider-Man series, the first of which is Silk: Spider Society, which will continue to build the Sony Spider-Man Universe (SSU) beyond its theatrical releases. Each series will premiere on Amazon’s Prime Video streaming service worldwide.
Silk: Spider Society will mark the first time Silk, the Korean American superhero (Cindy Moon), has appeared in a live-action project. Moon was played by Tiffany Espensen in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming and Avengers: Infinity War. It’s unclear if Espensen will reprise the superhero alias Moon in the Amazon-Sony-Marvel take on the small screen.
What we do know is who will be involved in Silk: Spider Society, and its core creative team is sure to thrill the global fan base. The Walking Dead showrunner Angela Kang will direct the series, while Phil Lord and Chris Miller (the visionaries behind the animated films Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse) will direct. They will be the executive producers. Kang and former Sony Pictures co-chairwoman Amy Pascal will also executive produce.
In a statement to Variety, Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke said:
“The recent adaptation of the Spider-Man franchise to live action and Sony animation by Amy Pascal, Phil Lord and Chris Miller has represented one of the most dynamic superhero stories in cinema. Coupled with the creative vision of Angela Kang, we couldn’t be more pleased to bring ‘Silk: Spider Society’ to our MGM Plus and Prime Video customers.”
Silk: Spider Society is not the only spin-off of the saga that is being prepared. Movies starring Kraven the Hunter and Madame Web, whose shooting has recently finished, are also being produced. Additionally, a third Venom film has been announced, with Tom Hardy reprising his role as Eddie Brock/Venom and Kelly Marcel joining as co-writer and director.

ANALYSIS: WEAVING A WEB OF INTRIGUE
Without wanting to sound far-fetched, this is great news for the growing Spider-Man Cinematic Universe and the Marvel multiverse, which was ushered into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) as part of Phase 4 of the MCU.
For starters, we will be able to see more spider characters debut in live action. So far, we’ve only seen Peter Parker’s Spider-Man in live action, with three actors (Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and the current “Tom Holland”) in the role.
Madame Web is the next spider-hero to appear in a live-action movie, with Dakota Johnson to bring him to life. Meanwhile, Miles Morales starred in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which featured other spiders, including Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Pig, Spider-Gwen, and Peni Parker. However, as we’ve mentioned before, Into the Spider-Verse is an animated movie, so these characters haven’t made it into a live-action superhero movie yet.
This deal for the Spider-Man TV series also has the potential to introduce more spider-like characters to a wider audience. There are plenty of other Spider-Man-like heroes that fans would love to see on the big and/or small screen, including Ben Reilly, Anansi, Spider-X, Spider-Woman, and Spider-Man 2099. We’ll be looking at some of these. individuals in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, but then again, this is an animated movie. Along with Silk, we’d love nothing more than to see them live-action.
Speaking of Silk, her arrival has the potential to tie into Tom Holland’s Spider-Man adventures in the MCU and SSU.
In the comics, Cindy Moon is bitten by the same genetically enhanced spider as Peter, giving her superpowers similar to her partner’s. Therefore, it is possible that a similar scenario could occur in Silk’s TV series. If so, her standalone series would tie into Holland’s MCU Spider-Man movies, which you can read more about in our Spider-Man movie guide, and make her canon in the MCU.
Sony and Marvel also have a similar way of linking the SSU and the MCU together. 2021’s Venom: Let There be Carnage and Spider-Man: No Way Home, as well as 2022’s Morbius, contained multiple references to the Marvel and Sony Cinematic Universes. In the first two, Venom briefly crossed over with the MCU, while Morbius included the Vulture (the villain from 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming) in a cameo. Clearly, the two studios are happy to bridge their film franchises and have different characters intersect in each one.
And that’s what makes this Spider-Man show deal on Prime Video so exciting. With this deal, we could see Holland’s Spider-Man appear on TV shows as well as future MCU/SSU movies. Rumors circulating the Internet suggest that Holland has signed a new deal with Marvel and Sony to appear in more Spider-Man-led projects, including those on the small screen. How cool would it be to see Holland make a cameo on Silk or another Spider-Man TV series? A lot, is the answer.
And what about Garfield and Maguire’s former Spider-Men, too? If Sony can’t (or won’t) give them new appearances on the big screen, why not see if they want to reprise their roles in one or more Spider-Man TV series? Garfield has always said that he’s open to returning to the role in some capacity and, with the duo playing very likable supporting roles in No Way Home, the door is clearly open for one or both of them to return.
It’s unlikely it’ll be as part of Marvel’s Phase 5, Phase 6, or any MCU production (aside from possible appearances in Avengers: Secret Wars, anyway). So why not see if they want to star in a Spider-Man series instead?
Spider-Man’s multiverse is as vast as all of Marvel’s characters occupy, so the possibilities are endless for Sony, Amazon, and Marvel to make whatever Spider-Man series they want. There are over 900 Spider-Man characters to draw from, and thanks to Into the Spider-Verse and the arrival of the MCU’s multiverse, audiences are more open to seeing the characters and their multiversal counterparts interact in the same space. Madame Web and Across the Spider-Verse will only raise fans’ hopes for more crossovers, too, as they’ll explore the Spider-Verse in more detail in 2023.
It would be a dream to see Holland’s Spider-Man, Silk, a live-action Miles Morales, and even Ben Reilly swinging through New York City, and this Spider-Man Prime Video deal gives us the best chance to see it. done. So be it, everyone.
