“Spider-Man Noir” Live-Action

“Spider-Man Noir”, the Marvel Comics title set in depression-era New York City, starring ‘Peter Parker’ as a ‘Spider-Man’ variant, is being developed as a live-action TV series at Sony, with Nic Cage in negotiations to star:

“…part of the ‘Marvel Noir’ universe (‘Earth-90214’), this alternate version of ‘Spider-Man’ emerges in a version of New York during the ‘Great Depression’. 

“While investigating a smuggling ring, ‘Peter Parker’ is bitten by a highly-venomous spider housed inside a spider-god idol. 

“Falling unconscious, Parker has a vision of the spider-god promising him power. He then awakens inside a cocoon and emerges from it, now possessing super-human abilities similar to a spider. 

“The feared vigilante ‘The Spider-Man’ wages a one-man war against the criminal underworld in New York City, partly to avenge the deaths of his uncle ‘Ben Parker’ at the hands of ‘Adrian Toomes‘ and his mentor ‘Ben Urich’ on the orders of the city's major crime lord, ‘Norman Osborn’.
