‘Spider-Man Noir’ Live-Action Series in Development at Prime Video

Sony is moving forward with its Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, with a Spider-Man Noir live-action series at Amazon.

According to Variety, 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.”

This is the second announced project based on Sony-controlled Marvel characters at Prime Video and MGM+ after Silk: Spider Society. Additional series are in the works but have not been announced at this time. Sony reportedly controls over 900 Marvel characters associated with the Spider-Man franchise.

Oren Uziel (The Lost City) will serve as writer and executive producer on Spider-Man Noir. He developed the show along with Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller and former Sony boss Amy Pascal, who will all executive produce.

Originally debuting in 2009 as part of the Marvel Noir universe, Peter Parker/Spider-Man Noir was bitten by a spider hidden inside a stolen artifact, causing him to have visions of a spider-god who grants him superpowers. Nicolas Cage previously voiced the character in Into the Spider-Verse. Cage is unlikely to reprise the role in the live-action series.
