While Marvel Studios is slowing down how many shows it’s creating, Sony Pictures Television doesn’t look to be doing the same as its starting to ramp up for the new live-action “Spider-Man Noir” series for Amazon Prime Video.
This new stand-alone series will be set in New York City during the Great Depression in the 1930s and feature an older, grizzled version of “Spider-Man”, that also isn’t Peter Parker.
Variety is reporting that Steve Lightfoot has joined the project as the co-showrunner. Steve has previously worked on Apple’s “Shantarum” and Netflix’s “The Punisher”.
The new untitled series has been written by Oren Uziel (The Lost City) and he will also be the other co-showrunner on the project and will be an executive producer.
Also creating the series as executive producers are “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, along with Amy Pascal.
This will be the first time “Spider-Man: Noir” has been adapted into live-action, though the character was included in the “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse” animated film and also in the “Ultimate Spider-Man” animated series.
