All about the Spider-Man Noir live-action series
Set in the backdrop of 1930s New York City, the narrative for this live-action series will circle around the life of an older superhero. As media reports suggest, the series will be set in its own universe and will NOT feature Peter Parker donning the lead role. Additionally, fans are also wondering which other characters might feature in this new project.
Moreover, the show will have the 2018 film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller as its showrunners. Orien Uziel will also be a part of the pre-production team. A former Sony executive, Amy Pascal will also be a part of the project.
Can confirm! And also confirm that it’s going to be amazing. https://t.co/kFTB9AAeaJ

All about Sony’s Spider-Man Noir and what’s in store for fans
The first Amazon project from Sony’s new spidey universe was announced in 2022 titled Silk: Spider Society. Additionally, Sony plans to further expand upon its Spider-Man universe through several other projects. It must also be noted that Sony’s Spider-Man universe isn’t a part of the MCU.
In the Spider-Man comics, the Noir character exists in a parallel universe where Peter Parker is a private detective. He also features in the popular 2018 animated movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, where he is portrayed as a ‘goofy’ character. Fans are also curious to see whether Sony reimagines (and if so, how?) or sticks to the original character arc of Spider-Man Noir. As mentioned above, we already know the show won’t feature Peter Parker, so it remains to be seen how Sony approaches this new live-action series.
Regardless of Sony’s decision, one thing’s for sure, fans cannot wait to watch Spider-Man Noir in action again.
