Silk Rumored For Spider-Man: Homecoming Played By Tiffany Espensen
While everybody is going bonkers over the potential casting of Zendaya in Spider-Man: Homecoming, a new rumor/speculation points to Silk being in the film.
According to a casting call sheet, 17-year-old Tiffany Espensen is playing a character named Cindy in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Silk in the Marvel Comics is named Cindy Moon.
The character was retconned into existence a couple of years ago by Dan Slott when it was said the same radioactive spider that gave Peter Parker his powers also bit a second person, Cindy Moon.
Silk has similar powers to Spider-Man but a greater Spider Sense (Silk Sense) and can shoot webs out of her fingertips.
The call sheet also reveals Bokeem Woodbine is playing Shocker, and hints Hobgoblin may appear with Ned Leeds.
Zendaya is also stated to be playing Michelle, not Mary Jane; though that could be a codename to throw people of.
"Spider-Man: Homecoming" has a July 7, 2017 release directed by Jon Watts starring Tom Holland, Zendaya, Michael Keaton, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, with Marisa Tomei, and Robert Downey Jr.
A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Marvel Studios' "Captain: Civil War," begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging superhero in "Spider-Man: Homecoming."
