Nicolas Cage To Reprise Spider-Verse Role In Spider-Man Noir Live-Action Series – SlashFilm


“Spider-Verse” helmers Christopher Miller, Phil Lord, and Amy Pascal will executive produce the show about the Noir-era version of Spider-Man, who in comics is a brooding private investigator who’s older than the high schooler Spidey portrayed in most of Marvel canon. Cage praised the character in his interview with ScreenRant last year, saying, “Spider-Man’s the coolest superhero. And then you combine that with Cagney and Bogart and Edward G. Robinson, come on, it’s a great character.” As we know from “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” the black-and-white antihero’s favorite pastimes include punching Nazis and drinking egg creams.

As of press time it’s unclear which Spider-Noir comics, if any, the show will directly pull from, but it’s worth noting that David Hine and Fabrice Sapolsk created the character for Marvel in 2009. Oren Uziel (“The Lost City”) and Steve Lightfoot (“Hannibal”) will reportedly co-showrun the show and serve as executive producers. “Enola Holmes” director Harry Bradbeer will direct the first two episodes and executive produce.

Though Cage may not be anyone’s first thought when asked to picture typically teen hero Spider-Man, he was incredible in the voice role, and the Marvel comics character’s covered-up costume (he tends to wear a black trench coat, hat, mask, and costume) makes him virtually ageless. Plus, this is an exciting career milestone for Cage: he’s won an Oscar, starred in dozens of movies, and appeared on screen for five decades and counting, but this will be the first time he’s ever starred in a TV show.

“Noir” does not yet have a release date, but when it does debut, it will premiere on MGM+ Channel before streaming on Prime Video.
