Spider-Man Noir, most recently voiced by Nicolas Cage in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, is getting his own live-action television series over at Amazon, Variety reports.
The outlet details, “The untitled series will follow an older, grizzled superhero in 1930s New York City. An individual with knowledge of the project says that the show will be set in its own universe and the main character will not be Peter Parker.”
Variety continues, “The Spider-Man Noir comics originally debuted in 2009 as part of the Marvel Noir universe. That version of the iconic superhero lives in New York during the Great Depression. He is bitten by a spider hidden inside a stolen artifact, causing him to have visions of a spider-god who grants him superpowers.”
Oren Uziel (Mortal Kombat, The Lost City) will serve as writer and executive producer on the Spider-Man Noir show. Uziel developed the show along with “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller and former Sony boss Amy Pascal, who all executive produce.
Sony Pictures Television is the studio behind the upcoming series.
