SPIDER-MAN Spinoff DUSK Reportedly In Early Development At Sony Pictures
Yet another Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters (SPUMC) movie is reportedly in development, and this one is set to focus on Cassie St. Commons, aka Dusk. Find out more after the jump...
Sony Pictures has reportedly added a new Spider-Man spinoff to its list of upcoming SPUMC releases.
According to The Illuminerdi, a Dusk movie is in development at the studio, though no further details on the project were provided.
Several different characters have taken up the mantle of Dusk in the comics - including Peter Parker himself for a time - but this version is said to focus on Cassie St. Commons.
First introduced back in 1998 in the pages of Slingers, Commons was a supernatural hero with the power of teleportation. She also had some psychic abilities, and eventually mastered the art of shadow manipulation and tissue regeneration.
We'll have to treat this as a rumor until we learn more, but the source has been consistently spot on with their scoops, so expect the trades to confirm at some point.
Sony is expected to add even more projects to the SPUMC in the coming months, and already has Morbius, Kraven the Hunter, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, and an untitled project (believed to be Spider-Woman) from Olivia Wilde on the agenda.
