Writers strike affected the Spider-Man Noir project

Spread MCU News

The live-action Spider Noir series is definitely happening, according to writers and producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who also work on the Spider-Verse animation trilogy. Lord and Miller discussed the much anticipated live-action series based on the audience favourite character from 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse in an exclusive interview with Collider’s Steven Weintraub for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. After Peter Parker is killed in his universe, Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore) must figure out how to be Spider-Man. Into the Spider-Verse chronicles his origin tale. Fortunately, Miles is not alone since multiverse mischief brings other Webslinger iterations to his reality. Spider-Noir is one of these Variants, a detective noir take on the protagonist who actually sees the world in shades of grey.

Given that Nicolas Cage gave Spider-Noir his all, it is clear why the character has become so beloved by fans. While everyone wanted to see Spider-Noir come back, no one anticipated Sony to announce a live-action series, especially given how innovative the animation in Into the Spider-Verse was. Due to Sony’s silence over this enigmatic project, we spoke with Lord and Miller about the status of the Spider-Noir series. Lord replied with a hasty “Yes.” Miller, though, clarified that the project has been put on hold.It was “[in development] until the writers’ strike and everything shut down,” as Miller puts it. But as soon as it is addressed, we’ll resume our discussion. But progress is being made. Unfortunately, Hollywood writers have been on strike since the beginning of May, demanding fair pay while major companies won’t talk. The Spider-Noir project, however, appears to be in safe hands since Lord and Miller are eager to return to it as soon as the authors receive the contract they deserve.

Spider-Noir will make a comeback for tales set in 1930s New York, although Cage hasn’t been asked to join the cast as of yet. We enquired as to the likelihood of Cage’s comeback since we would love to see him play a live-action version of the role. The artistic team was cautious, with Lord adding, “There is any chance.” We should keep our fingers crossed since it’s sufficient to sate our hopes.
