In a recent interview, Cage opened up about starring in Noir and shared why he decided to play Spider-Man Noir in a live-action series.

He admitted that he's always wanted to star in a TV series after seeing Bryan Cranston in Breaking Bad.

"What interested me was the time I could take expressing something. I saw Bryan Cranston in Breaking Bad stare at a suitcase for half the episode. Just him on the floor looking at a suitcase thinking, What’s in it? Do I do this? Don’t I do it? I thought, We don’t have time to do that in movies," the Oscar winner said.

"So that to me seemed like an opportunity to open it up a little. I don’t know if the [Noir] project that I’m exploring has room for that. I think this is a much more sort of popcorn-entertainment episodic television."

Cage also confirmed that the series will have eight episodes and the style is "more of a Pop-art mashup, like a Lichtenstein painting, where I want to do something that has some sparkle to it."

While he didn't reveal any major details about the villains that Spider-Man Noir will face, the actor teased, "One of the things that I like about this potential show is that it’s fantasy. It’s not really people beating people up. Monsters are involved."

It is an interesting tease about the series since it sounds like it will be more fantastical than what we may have expected and it won't be a pure noir story where the main hero has to solve a case involving New York City citizens.

The series is also going for a traditional streaming format with eight episodes (which is a common standard nowadays) and they are committed to making it stylistic given its period setting.

We should be hearing more details about the series in the coming months, and find out which other cast and characters will join Cage in his adventure.
