Sony developing a Dusk movie for their Spider-man universe

January 20th, 2021 by Marc Comments


Looks like Sony is developing another property in the Spider-man universe or the Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters (SPUMC) as it’s called. No, really.

Anyway, word is that a Dusk series is in development and set to join Venom, Morbius and other planned movies in their corner of the MCU universe (yes, they will be connected when all is said and done).

We know that Sony is developing a project with director Olivia Wilde (here) but it’s still believed this is Spider-woman and not connected to this project.

According to the report: “Dusk is a classic character from the Spider-Man lore based out of the Negative Zone. He is shown as the leader of a group of rebels battling the tyrannical Blastaar, but there’s no word on how much of this comic story will come in the movie.

“There is also another female superhero in the Spider-Man universe, most commonly seen as Cassie St. Commons. When she becomes Dusk, she sort of lives in a middle ground where she’s not exactly dead, but not exactly alive either. She has the abilities of teleportation, projecting dark force, manipulating shadows and more.”

At this stage, a new Spider-man or superhero movie is hardly surprising but it’s still exciting and even more so to see lesser-known characters coming to the front.

Are you a fan of Dusk? Would you be excited about this movie? Let me know your thoughts…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
