Nicolas Cage To Star in ‘Spider-Man Noir’ Show For Prime Video

nicolas cage as spider man noir

More than a year ago we learned that Amazon is set to produce a live-action series centered around Spider-Man Noir, a superhero set in 1930s New York City. Unlike the traditional Spider-Man story, this series will focus on an older, more weathered character, quite different from Peter Parker. Developed by Oren Uziel, the show will have its own path within the Marvel universe, with Uziel serving as both writer and executive producer.

The project so far involves notable names from the industry, including producers Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Amy Pascal. Uziel, known for his work on films such as ’22 Jump Street’ and the 2021 Mortal Kombat,’ brings his talents to the table. This series was just one more in line with Amazon’s Marvel character-driven projects, alongside ‘Silk: Spider Society.’

Today, it’s been confirmed that Nicholas Cage will in fact start as Spider-Man Noir in the upcoming show, something that’s been heavily speculated for a few months now.

This won’t be the first time that Cage is “playing” Spider-Man Noir. He voiced the character in ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.’ He speaks in a 1930s-style dialect reminiscent of Humphrey Bogart and James Cagney. His universe is depicted entirely in black and white, making him unfamiliar with colors. In the film, he arrives in Miles Morales’ universe along with other Spider-People, thanks to the Kingpin’s super-collider. Throughout the story, he develops a fondness for a Rubik’s Cube and eventually returns to his own dimension alongside his fellow heroes.
