That being said, there is so much more to look forward to going on behind the scenes. Two Spider-Man spinoff shows were recently announced: one focusing on Silk and another focusing on Spider-Man Noir.

Silk, or Cindy Moon, is a Korean-American superhero bitten by the same radioactive spider as Peter Parker, giving her similar powers.

Spider-Man Noir is an alternate universe version of Peter Parker, taking place during the Great Depression and well into World War II, all with a film noir aesthetic.

But the production of these fantastic shows has been interrupted, delaying the creation process. The Writers Guild of America strike, which began earlier this month, has halted the production of TV shows, movies, and more as writers fight for the respect they deserve.

After all, the writers behind each of our favorite movies and TV shows have often gone without proper pay and proper recognition.

Although this strike is for a good cause, it’s only just beginning, showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. As a result, these Spider-Man projects have been delayed indefinitely.

Our advice in the meantime? Rewatch your favorite movies and TV shows. Catch up on that series you’ve been meaning to watch for ages and dig into your ‘to be read’ list of books on your shelf.

These shows and movies will come out eventually, and we’d rather wait longer for good quality!
