Spider-Man Noir made a splash with his Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse appearance, and now we’ll see the character in a whole new light.
A Spider-Man Noir live-action series is currently in development, marking the first live-action Spider-Man series since The Amazing Spider-Man in 1977. Variety reports the series is in the works at Amazon, and the main character will not be Peter Parker.
Oren Uziel is currently attached as writer and executive producer for the project, reportedly set in 1930s New York City. Uziel developed the series with Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Amy Pascal, who will serve as executive producers.
This marks the second project based on Marvel characters at Amazon Prime Video, with the Sony-controlled characters finding a home on the streaming service. Spider-Man Noir will follow Silk: Spider Society by showrunner Angela Kang. Variety notes these aren’t be the only projects in development as “Sony currently controls over 900 such characters associated with the Spider-Man franchise.”

Spider-Man Noir debuted in 2009, introduced as part of the Marvel Noir universe. Notable, the character has a similar origin to Peter Parker. This version is bitten by a spider hidden inside a stolen artifact, causing him to have visions of a spider god who grants him superpowers. We’ve seen the character previously in Ultimate Spider-Man and the Academy Award-winning film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
