Nicolas Cage In Talks For ‘Spider-Man Noir’ Live-Action As Amazon Pauses Silk: Spider Society’s Writer’s Room

Amazon’s Silk: Spider Society, featuring heroine Cindy Moon who gets bitten by the same radioactive spider that bit Peter Parker searching for her family, was a hotly anticipated show following its announcement by Sony. Now, the show is entangled in a sticky web, as Amazon has officially paused the show’s writer’s room.

Work on the show was halted during the writer’s strike last year, after the scribes had reportedly finished several episodes. After the strikes’ conclusion, the Silk: Spider Society writers’ room had just started back up again before a pause was declared. Showrunner Angela Kang is still attached to the project, though many writers on the show have moved on to other projects.

There’s more brewing in the Spider-Man universe, as The Ankler reported that Nicolas Cage (Renfield) is in talks to play Spider-Noir in Spider-Man Noir helmed by Oren Uziel and Steve Lightfoot as co-showrunner. The show starring the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse fan favourite, voiced by Cage, will be a gritty thriller set in 1930s New York.

Here’s hoping Spidey can swing out of this sticky situation as Madame Web struggles at the box office and work is paused on Silk: Spider Society.
