Put on your fedora and lightly billowing cloak, and listen to what those Spidey-senses are telling you: could it possibly be true? Are we really getting a live-action adaptation of Spider-Man Noir, with none other than Nicolas Cage stepping up to solve early 20th Century mysteries with bonus Spider-powers? Somehow, we’ve ended up in the timeline where this is, in fact, real. Prime Video is stepping up to produce Noir, a live-action Spider-Man Noir series – and Cage is officially taking on the role.

Cage famously voiced Spider-Man Noir to incredible effect in animated feature Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse (and, given the ending of Across The Spider-Verse, seems very likely to reprise the role in Beyond The Spider-Verse), and the prospect of seeing him inhabit the role physically too is a tantalising one. Oren Uziel and Steve Lightfoot are set to act as showrunners, while Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Amy Pascal are all on board as producers. Here’s the official logline: “The story of an aging and down on his luck private investigator in 1930s New York, who is forced to grapple with his past life as the city’s one and only superhero.”

“Expanding the Marvel universe with Noir is a uniquely special opportunity and we are honored to bring this series to our global Prime Video customers,” says Amazon MGM Studios’ Vernon Sanders. “The extremely talented Nicolas Cage is an ideal choice for our new superhero and the accomplished producing team with Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, Amy Pascal and the incredible team at Sony is dedicated to expanding this franchise in the most authentic way.”

Stay tuned for more casting additions and updates on Noir as the series moves towards production – and expect it to hit your screens in a year or two. For now, we’re off to procure a large supply of wind machines.
