Earlier this year, we learned that Sony is working on a Spider-Man Noir TV series as part of their live-action Spider-Verse franchise. Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who produced the Spider-Verse animated films, will also be involved in the project.

However, since then, we really haven't heard any significant updates about the project and fans are wondering whether it is still happening or it was already put into the backburner.

The Spider-Man Noir TV Series is Still Happening

In a recent interview with Collider, Lord and Miller were asked whether the Spider-Man TV series is still happening. Fortunately, the duo iterated that the project remains in development at the moment. "Yes," Lord responded.

Miller also added that the ongoing Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike has temporarily put the project on hold since writers are currently not allowed to do any work while on its duration.

"It was [in development] until the writers’ strike and everything shut down. But once that gets resolved, we'll get back into it. But it's coming along nicely," he said.

There you go, we have a confirmation from the producing duo that the series is still happening despite the lack of development that we've been hearing. Due to the strike, it might take a while before we'll hear another update on its development.

Besides this project, they are also working on a Silk: Spider Society series which will focus on Cindy Moon/Silk, another beloved character in the Spider-Man comics. It is also in development and will be released by MGM+ and Amazon.

Is Nicolas Cage Reprising the Role in the Live-Action Series?

Given that Oscar winner Nicolas Cage voiced the character in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, a lot of fans are wondering whether he will also reprise the role in the live-action series.

However, when asked about that question, the duo played coy and did not give any definitive answer except that the possibility is out there.

"There is any chance," Lord said.

The character is not confirmed to return in the upcoming sequel Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, although it is unknown yet whether he might come back instead in the third film.

Nevertheless, it is exciting to hear this promising update about the project even though it is not major information. We should be hearing more news about this once work resumes on the project after the strike.
