Sony is continuing to expand the Spider-Verse universe, with Variety reporting that a new live-action series is in development for Amazon featuring “Spider-Man Noir”.
The new untitled series follows an older, grizzled superhero in 1930s New York City, but the main character won’t be Peter Parker. This series will be set in its own universe, so it won’t be connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe or Sony’s other films.
“Spider-Man Noir” originally debuted in the comic books in 2009 as part of the Marvel Noir Universe, and the character has already appeared in the animated “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse”, where Nicolas Cage voiced the character but isn’t connected to this new series.
This is the second Spider-Man-related series to be coming to Amazon, as “Silk” is also in development and that will also be available on MGM+ due to some odd contract rules.
Oren Uziel will be serving as the writer and executive producer on the new Spider-Man Noir show. Oren Uziel has previously written “The Lost City” and “22 Jump Street”. Uziel is developing the show along with “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller and former Sony boss Amy Pascal, who will all be executive producers on the show. Pascal executive produces via Pascal Pictures. Sony Pictures Television is the studio, with Lord and Miller currently under an overall deal there.
