Spider-Man Noir series in the works for Amazon Prime Video

Amazon Prime Video is developing a live-action Spider-Man Noir series based on the Marvel comic. The as-yet untitled series, written and executive produced by Oren Uziel (The Lost City), ‘follows an older, grizzled superhero in 1930s New York City.’  Sources close to the project say that the show is set in its own universe that involves an alternate Spider-Man character who is not Peter Parker. Uziel developed the series with Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, and Amy Pascal who will serve as executive producers.

The Amazon project would be the first live-action depiction of Spider-Man Noir, an alternate version of Spider-Man which emerges in a version of New York during the Great Depression. In the comics, Peter Parker is bitten by a spider housed inside a spider-god idol, that gives him super-human powers.Previously announced Spider-Man spinoff series, Silk: Spider Society, is also moving forward at Amazon and MGM+, from Sony Pictures Television.
