The producing team will be composed of Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Amy Pascal. Katherine Pope, President of Sony TV, is also enthusiastic to announce the return of Nicolas Cage.

We are absolutely thrilled to have Nicolas Cage starring in this series! No one else could bring such pathos, pain, and heart to this singular character. Along with our brilliant producers and partners at Amazon MGM Studios and Prime Video, we couldn’t ask for a better team to explore this reimagining of such an iconic character in Sony’s Universe of Marvel Characters.”

Cage had previously hinted at the possibility of Spider-Man Noir’s return after he mentioned that he had been having conversations with the studio. He shared via Collider:

Well, I can say that we have been talking. It’s no secret that I love the character. I think the character provides another mash-up of sorts. I can combine my favorite golden age performances.”

The actor described the franchise as a “foray into a pop art mash-up” and he also called Spider-Man Noir “a character that is, I guess, widely considered [to be] Stan Lee’s masterpiece.” Indeed, the Spider-Man franchise has long been the flagship character of Marvel Studios.
