There are no announcements about who will be playing the character, but as with all major projects that haven’t been cast yet, fans have some input. A fan thinks so X-Men: Apocalypse and To all the boys I loved before star Lana Condor would have to play the character and even design what she might look like.
An artist on Instagram known as @Clements.Ink has created a new design showing what Condor could look like as Silk for Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man series based on the character. The costume is quite accurate and transitions well into live action. It has the character’s signature look and is outfitted with the scarf over her face. You can check out the fan art below!
