According to The Ankler, Nicolas Cage is reportedly circling the ‘Spider-Man Noir’ project as he engages in serious talks to take on the lead role in the series, which will be set in 1930s New York City.

Despite previous character change reports, Cage is reportedly in serious negotiations to play the ’30s detective version of the Marvel web-slinger. However, Sony declined to comment regarding Cage’s involvement in the project, which is still developing.

Cage popularly voiced the Spider-Man Noir character in Sony’s blockbuster smash, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018). Although Cage didn’t reprise the role in the multi-million-dollar box office sequel, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (2023), the actor continues to hold the character in high esteem.

In an interview with Comic Book , the actor described the character as such: Well, I think it’s a wonderful character. It’s a character that lends itself to channeling some of my favorite noir movie stars. Spider-Man, for me, is the coolest superhero. I think to have that combined with a noir, like 1930s golden age movie star attitude, makes it one of the most exciting of all the superhero characters.”
