Nicolas Cage to do live-action Spider-Noir.

Wellllll… all right? “Nicolas Cage will once again play Spider-Man Noir, but this time in a live-action series. Cage is set to star in the live-action show “Noir,” which has been ordered to series at MGM+ and Amazon Prime Video.” It’d be — okay, fine, if it was anybody but Cage I’d worry that the live-action part would be far too stupid. But Nick Cage lives in the ‘far too stupid.’ He was born to it, was raised in it, he has made it his own*. So this might work.

*Or whatever the quote is. I’m too lazy to look it up right now.

I’ll allow it.

Cage confirmed that there have been “conversations” about reprising his Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse role in live-action. Cage shared with Collider: “I can say that we have been talking. It’s no secret that I love the character.” Cage also described the character as a “mash up of sorts,” one that was inspired by Golden Age actors like Edward G. Robinson, James Cagney, and Humphrey Bogart.

It would be a series, not a movie. Oh, and it will be different. I don’t have any direct evidence for that, except that it’s going to be a Nicolas Cage production. But, really: isn’t that enough?

Nic Cage remains on-brand for new Nic Cage movie.

The thing about Nic Cage is, he’s aware. Cage knows what kind of reputation he has, at this point. And he’s pretty much cool with it:

Nicolas Cage will star in the martial arts actioner “Jiu Jitsu,” based on the comic book of the same name.


“Jiu Jitsu” centers on an ancient order of expert Jiu Jitsu fighters facing fearsome alien invaders in a battle for Earth every six years. Cage’s character and his team of Jiu Jitsu fighters band together with Moussi’s character to defeat the Brax.
