Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse already has plenty of steam behind it with a solid cast along with Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller (as producers I might add) behind it. The animated film follows a different Spider-man, a teenager by the name of Miles Morales. He meets an adult Peter Parker, the Spider-man we are all accustomed to as he trains him to be Spider-Man. It follows various Spider-Men and Women from different universes ranging from the 1930s to present day, hence Spider-Verse in the title. As for the 1930s however, that Spidey is referred to as Spider-Man Noir and one crazy man was recently reported to be voicing the character and it looks like that may be true.
Yes! Crazy Cage! Nicolas Cage! The Bees Cage is confirmed to voice Spider-Man Noir in the film according to Collider. Cage will join the cast alongside actor-rapper Shameik Moore, Jake Johnson from New Girl, Hailee Steinfield from Edge of Seventeen and Oscar winner Mahershala Ali from Moonlight.
Spider-Man Noir is a pretty cool character and is one of the darker incarnations of the beloved web crawler. Set in the 1930s Great Depression Era, the character is an intriguing addition to Marvel’s repertoire and falls under the Marvel Noir universe. The character is still Peter Parker but things are quite different with this one, he has a revolver for Christ’s sake.
It’s gonna be great to see how this Spidey interacts with the more light-hearted Spideys and with Cage on board, it’s gonna be a whole lot of fun. I don’t even care if the film is bad, Cage alone is going to be a great addition just because he’s Cage. But seriously though, Cage has been involved in superhero works in the past with films like Kick-Ass and Ghost-Rider ( remember that? ). He also voices Superman in the upcoming Teen Titans Go! To the Movies so he definitely has experience. Nonetheless, it’s unclear how much of Noir we’ll see but I’m excited anyhow.
