  1. I do want to see Tiffany Espensen portray silk, as it would be a waste to have characters mentioned and not fully realized. With the events of No Way Home, sticking to the comics would imply Peter and Cindy having a pheromone-addictive relationship, allowing MJ to move on and Peter + Cindy can be a thing. May suck not having a Gwen Stacy or Black Cat, and I really want to see Black Cat.
