Nicolas Cage will portray Spider-Man Noir in a new live-action series. Per Variety, Cage is set to star in the live-action show “Noir,” which has been ordered to series at MGM+ and Amazon Prime Video. The series will debut domestically on MGM+’s linear channel followed by a global launch on Prime Video.

The announcement was shared on Amazon’s social media channels with the caption: “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. ‘NOIR’, starring Nicolas Cage, is coming to MGM+ and Prime Video.”

Noir is a live-action series based on the Marvel Comics character Spider-Man Noir, an alternate version of Spider-Man living during the Great Depression. According to a press release, the show “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.”

Vernon Sanders, head of television for Amazon MGM Studios, said: “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. 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.”

Variety had previously reported the series was in development in February 2023, without Cage attached at that time. Cage previously voiced Spider-Man Noir in the animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) and its sequel, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (2023).
