    Of the two the Spider-man Noir with Nic Cage is more likely to be successful. Most common people have no idea who Silk is and after Madame Webb, I wouldn't trust a series like this either.

    So according to Deadline article on the cancellation, appearently the higher ups wanted the show to not focus on....Silk....tell me why are you doing a show about Silk if you don't want to focus on the character.

    Yeah while i would love to see Silk get her time to shine in the movie/tv spotlight, but if you are only make one of them, Noir makes the most sense.

    Don’t agree with the Noir bit, but if that first bit is true?

    Its better off dead and Noir moving forward.

    Yeah we even heard few months ago that the studio wanted the show to be more "Male-centric" towards its audience, i think we now know what they meant by that.....

    The good thing is that Amazon is letting Sony shop the show to other networks, so lets hope the show finds a new home and they get the correct team to deliver a show that is truly about Silk.

    It's okay, I'm more interested to watch Nicolas Cage chew the scenes in a live Spider-man action show. I don't know if the plot will be any good, but I know Cage will put his best effort in. I've seen him make awful plots watchable.

    Silk doesn't really have much of a character to her, she's had a lot of short-lived mini-series and I still am unsure if any of them have properly defined her. Also J. Jonah Jameson is a big part of her usual supporting cast so he likely would have been off limits

    The only thing I actually remember about her character is that for some unexplained reason whenever her and Peter get around each other they get an uncontrollable urge to screw or something. Like, I remember one issue where Doc Ock's GF (forget her name) hit the two of them with water from a spray bottle like they were dogs because they were making out on the ceiling or some nonsense.

    Seriously?! Talk about a slap in the face. :(  The fact that from what I've heard they wanted this to be a male centric show is idiotic as well. Really hope it finds a place that can let it be what it's meant to be because she's a compelling character in her own right.

    Ah yes, another story that Dan Slott actually publicly regrets writing and has openly apologized for.

    Otto's girlfriend's name is Anna Maria Marconi btw.

    That is literally the ONLY thing I remember about Silk. I'm surprised that they never revealed why all of this time.

    I had to look it up.

    It was because of "spider pheromones" due to being bitten by the same Spider

    If Sony won’t/can’t use Spidey for all these spin-offs then I feel like setting up another Spider-person like Silk makes a lot more sense than developing projects around a villain or supporting character. But it also seems like Sony has no idea what it’s doing and is flailing in all directions so…

    I hope that Madame Web's failure didn't destroy any chance of Silk as well for that matter a lot of other spider-women from getting their one movies/series in the future because they all have fans that love and care for them, and have potential to have good movies in their own right when put into the right hands. Silk's especially.

    I mean with Spider-Man 2 game teasing Silk for game 3 and the fact there are plans for an all female Spider-Verse spin off film, i think Silk will have a bright future ahead of her, this is just a bump in the road

    Unfortunately, I assume the stupid execs who wanted to downplay Silk in her own series were motivated exactly by not understanding why Madame Web failed.
