A Spider-Man Noir series is in the works at Amazon Studios, Variety has reported in an exclusive.

The live action Spider-Man Noir series will written and executive producted by Oren Uziel (The Lost City, 22 Jump Street), who developed the show with Into the Spider-Verse producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, along with Amy Pascal (Sony). The series will follow Spider-Man Noir (who will not be Peter Parker, but an "older, grizzled superhero") in '30s New York.

Spider-Man Noir was introduced to Marvel Comics in Marvel Comics in 2009 as a part of the Marvel Noir line. He was later introduced to the mainstream as one of the alternate universe Spider-people in 2018's critically acclaimed Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, voiced by Nicolas Cage.

This new announcement follows the clear pattern that Sony has been setting, as they plan to produce more and more Spider-Man related television and film. Sony has a large roster of upcoming Spider-projects including two more Into the Spider-Verse movies (Across the Spider-Verse part one and part two), Silk: Spider Society with Amazon Prime Video and MGM+, a third Venom film with Tom Hardy, a Kraven the Hunter film with Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and a Madame Web film with Dakota Johnson, and El Muerto. Other Spider-projects in development include The Sinister Six, Jackpot, Nightwatch, and a Hypno-Hustler movie (yes, really). If you need help keeping track of what's been announced, here's a handy guide.
