Spider-Man Noir (Into the Spider-Verse)

Sony lines up a Spider-Man Noir series with Amazon

The show will be live-action, but it’s hero won’t be Peter Parker.

With Sony’s rights deal covering the extensive Spider-Man catalogue of characters, they’re taking the leap into television.

The company have primarily focussed on movies in the past two decades. From the Toby Maguire-fronted trilogy, to Andrew Garfield’s two outings. Tom Holland’s most recent version of the web-slinger is part of the MCU, with his last outing bringing together all three iterations the character.

Additionally, Sony have pursued Spidey villains on the big screen with a pair of Venom movies and the recent Morbius film, staring Jared Leto and Matt Smith.

However, there’s a whole multiverse of Spider-Man characters they can play with; over 900 according to Variety. We got a first taste of this, including Spider-Man Noir, with 2018’s terrific animated film Into the Spider-Verse.

That movie has a further multiverse-bending sequel landing this summer, with a second scheduled for 2024. In the first, Nicolas Cage voiced Spider-Man Noir but recent comments from him have suggested he’s not returning for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.

Currently untitled, the Spider-Man Noir series will follow an older, grizzled version of the superhero in 1930s New York. However, the show will be set in its own universe and unconnected to Peter Parker.

According to Dark Horizons, Oren Uziel (The Lost City) will writer and executive produce the show, which he developed with Into the Spider-Verse directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. They also executive produce along with former Sony Studio chief Amy Pascal.

Sony also has another show, Silk: Spider Society, in the works too. If you’re not familiar, IGN have a good rundown of background to that here.

We’ll keep you posted.
