Share

– Nicolas Cage will reprise his role as Spider-Man Noir in a live-action series for MGM+ and Amazon Prime Video, which will reimagine the iconic character within Sony’s Universe of Marvel Characters.
– The Spider-Man Noir series, developed by Amazon, will be set in an alternate 1930s New York and will be run by Oren Uziel and Steve Lightfoot, with no current release date announced.

Nicolas Cage is poised to don the trench coat and fedora once more as the enigmatic Spider-Man Noir in an eagerly anticipated series making its way to Amazon Prime Video. Variety has confirmed Cage’s involvement in the upcoming live-action venture, promising to thrust the Hollywood maven back into the shadows of this alternate superhero identity.

Cage’s reunion with the noir-inspired iteration of the beloved Spider-Man originally voiced by him in 2018’s animated hit, “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” marks a significant addition to the burgeoning universe of Marvel characters adapted for the screen. This time, the setting will leap off the comic book pages and into the grit and grime of an alternate 1930s New York City, where Spider-Man Noir – an older, battle-hardened vigilante – patrols the streets.

Sony Pictures Television Studios’ Katherine Pope has expressed immense enthusiasm over Cage’s return. She praised his aptitude for infusing the character with a profound blend of pathos, pain, and heart, setting the stage for a nuanced and deep exploration of Spider-Man Noir’s world. This sentiment is reinforced by Vernon Sanders of Amazon MGM Studios, who spotlights the opportunity to broaden the Marvel landscape with the Noir character, noting Nic Cage as a perfect fit for this distinctive superhero. Alongside a formidable production team including noteworthy figures Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Amy Pascal, the project sparks high expectations for its authentic and innovative approach.

With Oren Uziel and Steve Lightfoot at the helm as showrunners and executive producers, the creative force behind the series ensures a rich narrative underpinning for its darkly atmospheric premise. Although Cage made a brief appearance as the character in the “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse,” his role in the Spider-Verse sequel was silent, leaving fans eagerly awaiting his vocal reprisal. Questions hang in the air regarding his involvement in the forthcoming “Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse,” keeping the community in suspense.

The addition of Cage, a veteran actor whose cinematic portfolio is as diverse as it is expansive, ensures that this series will hold a distinctive place in the superhero genre.
