MGM+ and Prime Video have ordered the production of a live-action TV series based on the Marvel character Spider-Man Noir, an alternative version of the Marvel Comics character already seen in the 2018 animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Titled simply Noir, as reported by the specialized site Deadline, the TV series will star Nicolas Cage, who has previously portrayed the Marvel Comics character Ghost Rider in two films and voiced Spider-Man Noir in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

The series, in development since last year, is created by Oren Uziel (22 Jump Street) and Steve Lightfoot (Shantaram), who will serve as co-showrunners and executive producers. The two are working on the project alongside Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who previously directed the animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and are also known for directing The LEGO Movie. The direction is entrusted to Harry Bradbeer (Fleabag, Killing Eve), who will be the executive producer of the first two episodes.

Set in 1930s New York, Noir tells the story of a weathered and unlucky private investigator who grapples with his superhero past.

The TV series will debut in the United States on the MGM+ linear channel and then be distributed on Prime Video in over 240 countries.

Created in 1999 by writer David Hine and Italian artist Carmine Di Giandomenico, Spider-Man Noir comes from 1933, a time when the United States had not yet recovered from the great economic crisis of 1929. In this context moves a young Peter Parker, who works at the Daily Bugle newspaper to pay for his studies and uses his powers to fight crime and corruption rampant in New York.

His superpowers are magical in nature and come from the Spider God, who transmitted them to him through the bite of a mystical spider. His abilities are identical to those of other Spider-Men, but his webs are organic and come out of his wrists. His costume consists of a helmet, aviator goggles (used by his uncle during World War I), and a kevlar suit covered by a regular coat.
