Meet Spider-Man, Sam Spade.
IndieWire has learned that a Spider-Man Noir live-action series is currently in the works on Amazon Prime Video, developed and executive produced by "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" writers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. The duo also collaborated with "22 Jump Street" scribe Oren Uziel, who co-developed and EPs the upcoming series.
Uziel most recently penned "The Lost City," starring Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum, as well as "John Wick 4," "Mortal Kombat," and "The Cloverfield Paradox."
The upcoming untitled Spider-Man Noir series will follow an older, more world-weary superhero in 1930s New York City. The series does not have any connection to Peter Parker, and takes place in a separate universe from the Marvel films and animated "Across the Spider-Verse." Amy Pascal, a former Sony CEO, is executive producing the Spider-Man Noir series, with Sony Pictures Television as the studio behind it.
In both the "Spider-Verse" films, Nicolas Cage played Spider-Man Noir. Milo Ventimiglia also previously played the character in the animated series "Ultimate Spider-Man." No casting for the live-action Prime Video series has been announced yet.
Spider-Man Noir was created as part of the Marvel Noir comic book universe in 2009. The character exists during the Great Depression and comes into contact with a supernatural spider linked to an arachnophobic god who gives him superpowers.
The second series from Amazon Prime Video and MGM+ to include a Sony-Marvel character Spider-Man is set with Angela Kang (“The Walking Dead”) as showrunner.
Donald Glover, who has an overall deal with Prime Video signed in February 2021, is set to star and direct a Sony Pictures film about Spider-Man villain Hypno-Hustler. The script, which is believed to be set in the 1970s when the character was first created in the comic books, is being written by Eddie Murphy's son Myles.
Glover previously acted as Miles Morales' uncle in the 2017 film "Spider-Man: Homecoming." The Hypno-Hustler role follows the release of other announced Spider-Man spin-off films, including "Madame Web," "Kraven the Hunter," and "El Muerto."
