Amazon is about to launch a live-action series based on the Spider-Man universe, great news for fans who enjoyed the dark and intriguing hero. The series, titled “Spider-Man Noir”, is set in 1930s New York, a time of gangsters, corruption and mysteries in the shadows.
Variety and IGN have confirmed that Amazon is producing the live-action Spider-Man Noir series. The series will follow the grizzled superhero as he fights crime in Depression-era Greater New York. We will not have Peter Parker as the protagonist, which adds a touch of originality to the plot.
The producers behind the acclaimed “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” are leading the project. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, along with Oren Uziel, are responsible for developing the series.
Who is Spider-Man Noir?
Created for the Marvel Noir universe by writers David Hine and Fabrice Sapolsky, and illustrators Carmine Di Giandomenico and Marko Djurdjevic, he first appeared in 2009 in a four-issue miniseries. Unlike the Peter Parker we know, Spider-Man Noir is a more brutal and lethal version of the hero.
“He faces the criminal underworld in a dark and hopeless New York, where corruption and violence are bigger monsters than any supervillain. His story is full of intrigue, secrets and a noir atmosphere that engages us from the first page.”
The “Spider-Man Noir” series is Sony’s latest attempt to expand the Spidey universe. In addition to this, Sony is also developing other productions based on characters from this universe.
