Nicolas Cage Headlining ‘Spider-Man Noir’ Series on Prime Video

Over a year ago, news surfaced that Amazon would be producing a live-action series centered around Spider-Man Noir, a superhero situated in 1930s New York City. Departing from the traditional Spider-Man narrative, this show will spotlight an older, more seasoned character distinct from Peter Parker. Developed by Oren Uziel, the series will carve its own path within the Marvel universe, with Uziel serving as both writer and executive producer.

The project has attracted notable industry figures, including producers Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Amy Pascal. Uziel, recognized for his work on films like ’22 Jump Street’ and the 2021 ‘Mortal Kombat,’ brings his expertise to the endeavor. This series is part of Amazon’s lineup of character-driven Marvel projects, joining the ranks of ‘Silk: Spider Society.’

Today, it has been officially confirmed that Nicholas Cage will indeed portray Spider-Man Noir in the upcoming show, confirming months of speculation.

This isn’t the first time Cage has taken on the role of Spider-Man Noir. He previously voiced the character in ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.’ Cage’s portrayal captures the essence of the 1930s with a dialect reminiscent of Humphrey Bogart and James Cagney. His universe is uniquely depicted in black and white, as he is unfamiliar with colors. In the film, he ventures into Miles Morales’ universe alongside other Spider-People via the Kingpin’s super-collider. Throughout the adventure, he develops an affinity for a Rubik’s Cube and eventually returns to his own dimension with his fellow heroes.
