Film noir is coming back, at least for Spider-Man.
Variety is reporting that Spider-Man Noir is getting a live-action series on Prime Video. The untitled series will follow an older, grizzled superhero in 1930s New York City. Their sources are saying that the main character will not be Peter Parker and that it’ll be set in its own universe.
The project comes after another Spider-Man project for Prime Video and MGM+, Silk: Spider Society. That series from showrunner Angela Kang, was the first announced among other Sony-controlled Marvel series in the works. Sony owns the rights to over 900 characters associated with the Spider-Man franchise, so they have plenty of options.
Oren Uziel will write and executive produce the Spider-Man Noir series. Uziel developed the show alongside Into the Spider-Verse producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller with help from former Sony executive Amy Pascal. Uziel has some impressive credits under his belt with movies like The Lost City, 22 Jump Street, Mortal Kombat, and The Cloverfield Paradox.
Nicolas Cage voiced Spider-Man Noir in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and he was voiced by Milo Ventimiglia in Ultimate Spider-Man. The character debuted in 2009 as part of the Marvel Noir universe. That version of the character lives in New York during the Great Depression. He is bitten by a spider hidden inside a stolen artifact, which gives him visions of a spider-god and grants him the Spider-Man superpowers.
Sony is pushing their Spider-Man Universe out as hard as they possibly can with multiple releases like Kraven the Hunter with Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Madame Web with Dakota Johnson and Sydney Sweeney, and a third Venom film among plenty of other projects.
