Sony is bringing another character out of its Spider-Man adjacent characters it holds the rights to and is teaming with Amazon for a pulp-tinged Spider-Man Noir live action television series.
The show is being developed by screenwriter Oren Uziel, who has last year’s Sandra Bullock-Channing Tatum action comedy The Lost City and 2021’s Mortal Kombat on his resume. Chris Miller and Phil Lord, the producers of Sony’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse animated movie and it’s two upcoming sequels, have also lent a hand in developing this project.
Spider-Man Noir first appeared in a 2009 self-titled comic book mini-series. Set in an alternate Earth still stuck in a 1930s and 40s aesthetic, it transposed the usually more happy-go-lucky superhero into a milieu better known for better, hardboiled detectives and sexy yet dangerous femme fatales. The character was brought to the big screen in 2018′ Spider-Man: Into The Spidre-Verse, where he was voiced by Nic Cage.
The series marks the second collaboration between Amazon and Sony in developing a television series from the Spider-Man stable of characters that Sony owns the film and TV rights to . The pair are already partnered on developing Silk: Spider-Society, featuring the character Silk. This show is being developed by The Walking Dead showrunner Angela Kang.
No dates have been announced for when either show will be going into production or if there is a targeted timeframe in which Amazon and Sony hope to premier them.
As of now, it is unknown, if these two shows will interconnect with each other or the various Spider-Man adjacent feature films such as Venom and the upcoming Kraven The Hunter that Sony has been producing. Of course, the animated feature Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse suggests that all things are possible, so one can never tell.
