Nicolas Cage is back as Spider-Man in live-action Amazon series

Nicolas Cage is ready to don the Spider-Man Noir suit again — only this time, in live-action. Amazon has confirmed that Cage will be reprising the role that he previously voiced in the animated film Into the Spider-Verse.

The new series, which was first reported last year, is simply called Noir and, according to Amazon, “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.” Oren Uziel (22 Jump Street) and Steve Lightfoot (The Punisher on Netflix) will serve as co-showrunners, while Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Amy Pascal, who worked on the Spider-Verse films, will be executive producers.

Noir doesn’t currently have a premiere date, but Amazon says it will premiere domestically on MGM Plus’ linear channel, before streaming on Prime Video afterward. It’s also not the only Spidey spinoff in the works at Amazon, joining Silk: Spider Society from showrunner Angela Kang (The Walking Dead).
