Nicolas Cage will voice Spider-Man Noir in the upcoming Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
Created by David Hine, Fabrice Sapolsky, Carmine Di Giandomenico, Spider-Man Noir is an alternate darker version of Spider-Man from a world where it is 1933 – during the Great Depression. This Peter Parker is an inexperienced yet idealistic apprentice of a respected yet troubled reporter who is accidentally bitten by an illegally imported and highly venomous spider, while secretly investigating a smuggling ring of ancient spider statues. Instead of killing him, the bite gave him super-human abilities similar to that of a spider. Taking advantage of his new abilities, Parker begins to wage a one-man war against the criminal underworld in New York City as a brutal and feared vigilante, known as “Spider-Man”, partly to avenge the death of his uncle Ben Parker at the hands of the city’s major crime lord Norman Osborn.
The character debuted in Spider-Man Noir #1 (February 2009) and previously appeared in animation form in Ultimate Spider-Man, voiced by Milo Ventimiglia in the episode “The Spider-Verse: Part 2…”
