Nicolas Cage to Lead in Live-Action ‘Spider-Man Noir’ Series

The Spider-Verse transcends animation with a live-action Spider-Man Noir television series confirmed to air on Amazon’s Prime Video. Nicolas Cage, recognized for his vocal portrayal of this alter ego Spider-Man in 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, will act out the role. The forthcoming series, under the succinct title Noir, is set to be directed by Harry Bradbeer. The creative force behind the series includes Oren Uziel, Steve Lightfoot, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Amy Pascal, with the latter three serving as executive producers.

Nicolas Cage as Spider-Man Noir

Nicolas Cage brings Spider-Man Noir to life, a character he previously voiced in the animated film, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The series, named Noir, appears to be his latest venture as the actor has shared thoughts about his approaching retirement from films in recent interviews but confirmed his interest in TV productions. Cage stated, “Maybe it’s time to look at the immersive streaming experience, I don’t know. I have to look for the next step and I haven’t found it yet.”

About Noir

Amazon’s official press release paints a vivid image of the new series:

“Noir tells the story of an aging and down on his luck private investigator (Cage) in 1930s New York, who is forced to grapple with his past life as the city’s one and only superhero.”

The rumors of a Spider-Man Noir TV series on Amazon began circulating on the internet in early 2023. Initially in Marvel comics, the Noir character was part of a series where famous characters were revisited in roles resembling stars of classic crime films, all executed seriously despite a wry take on the detective genre in the Spider-Verse.

Release Info

The Noir series will first be premiered on Amazon’s MGM+ channel, followed by its exclusive streaming debut on Prime Video. The enthusiastic fans will undoubtedly be eager to watch Nic Cage’s return as Spider-Man Noir in this live-action series.
