Spider-man - Sony Spider-verse shows coming to Amazon

Amazon is officially moving forward with multiple live-action shows based on the Marvel characters controlled by Sony, Variety has learned.

The first series under the deal will be “Silk: Spider Society,” which was developed by “The Walking Dead” showrunner Angela Kang along with “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Kang will serve as showrunner and executive producer on “Silk” as part of a new multi-year overall television deal she has signed with Amazon. Kang, Lord, and Miller all executive produce along with former Sony boss Amy Pascal. Sony Pictures Television is the studio, with Lord and Miller currently under an overall deal there.

“Silk: Spider Society” will debut domestically on MGM+’s (nee Epix) linear channel followed by a global launch on Prime Video. The show is based on characters created by Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos for Marvel Comics. It follows Cindy Moon, described as “a Korean-American woman bitten by the same spider that bit Peter Parker, as she escapes imprisonment and searches for her missing family on her way to becoming the superhero known as Silk.”

“Amy Pascal, Phil Lord, Chris Miller, and Sony’s recent live-action and animated reimagining of the Spider-Man franchise has represented some of the most dynamic superhero storytelling in film,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios. “Together with Angela Kang’s creative vision, we couldn’t be more pleased to bring ‘Silk: Spider Society’ to our MGM+ and Prime Video customers.”

The “Silk” series and the other shows based on Sony-controlled Marvel characters were originally reported as being in the works back in September 2020. At that time, Lauren Moon was writing “Silk,” while it was reported in 2021 that Tom Spezialy had joined the series as showrunner as part of his own Amazon overall deal.

“We can’t wait to bring the adventures of Cindy Moon to life, thanks to the creative dream team of Chris and Phil, Angela and Amy, along with our partners at Marvel and Amazon,” said Katherine Pope, president of Sony Pictures Television Studios. “We know this exciting series with new and never-before-seen characters and storylines will wow audiences watching first on linear MGM+ and then around the world on Prime Video.”

“Angela is a pro’s pro whose perspective and creativity we greatly respect and admire,” added Lord and Miller. “She’s also a hell of a lot of fun. She loves these characters and we feel really lucky for the chance to work with her to bring Cindy Moon’s story to the world.”

Kang is best known for her work on “The Walking Dead.” She became a writer on the show in 2011 and co-executive producer in 2013. She was promoted to executive producer and showrunner in 2018 beginning with the hit AMC series’ ninth season. “The Walking Dead” is airing its series finale on Nov. 20, with Kang also co-creating a spinoff centered on Norman Reedus’ character, Daryl Dixon. She launched her own production company, Kang & Co Entertainment, in 2020.

She is repped by UTA, Literate, and Johnson Shapiro Slewett & Kole LLP.

“I’m beyond thrilled to be joining the Amazon Studios family for this next chapter of my career,” Kang said. “I look forward to working with the executive team on diverse, character-forward, watercooler shows for a global audience and am so excited to dive in to my first challenge—bringing Korean-American superhero Silk to life on screen.”

It is unknown at this time which other Marvel characters will be featured in the Amazon shows, though Sony currently controls over 900 such characters associated with the Spider-Man franchise.

Sony has released multiple Spider-Man live-action films in the past and currently works with Marvel Studios on the rebooted film franchise starring Tom Holland via Columbia Pictures. Sony is also behind “Into the Spider-Verse,” which won the Academy Award for best animated film in 2019. Two sequels to that film are currently in the works, with the first — “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” — due out in theaters in June 2023.

To date, Sony has also released the live-action films “Venom” and its sequel “Let There Be Carnage” starring Tom Hardy, as well as “Morbius” starring Jared Leto. A third “Venom” film is currently in development, while Sony is also at work on film versions of characters like “Kraven the Hunter” starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson and “Madame Web” starring Dakota Johnson, among several others.

re: Spider-man - Sony Spider-verse shows coming to Amazon

A Spider-Man Noir live-action series is in the works at Amazon, Variety has learned exclusively.

The untitled series will follow an older, grizzled superhero in 1930s New York City. An individual with knowledge of the project says that the show will be set in its own universe and the main character will not be Peter Parker.

This is the second known project based on the Sony-controlled Marvel characters at Amazon Prime Video and MGM+. It was previously announced that Amazon was moving forward with the series “Silk: Spider Society” from showrunner Angela Kang, with several other shows in the works. It is unknown at this time which other Marvel characters will be featured in the other Amazon shows, though Sony currently controls over 900 such characters associated with the Spider-Man franchise.

Oren Uziel will serve as writer and executive producer on the Spider-Man Noir show. Uziel developed the show along with “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller and former Sony boss Amy Pascal, who all executive produce. Pascal executive produces via Pascal Pictures. Sony Pictures Television is the studio, with Lord and Miller currently under an overall deal there.

Uziel most recently worked on the screenplay for the romantic comedy feature “The Lost City” starring Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum. His other writing credits include “22 Jump Street,” the 2021 “Mortal Kombat” film, and “The Cloverfield Paradox.” He has also worked on the scripts for upcoming films like “John Wick 4” and “Borderlands,” based on the video game of the same name.

He is repped by Curate and Myman Greenspan.

The Spider-Man Noir comics originally debuted in 2009 as part of the Marvel Noir universe. That version of the iconic superhero lives in New York during the Great Depression. He is bitten by a spider hidden inside a stolen artifact, causing him to have visions of a spider-god who grants him superpowers. The character has previously appeared onscreen in the animated series “Ultimate Spider-Man” with Milo Ventimiglia providing his voice, while Nicolas Cage voiced the character in “Into the Spider-Verse.” The Amazon show will be the first live-action iteration of Spider-Man Noir.

Sony has released multiple Spider-Man live-action films in the past and currently works with Marvel Studios on the rebooted film franchise starring Tom Holland via Columbia Pictures. Sony is also behind “Into the Spider-Verse,” which won the Academy Award for best animated film in 2019.

Live action? They should have just given Cage's character from the movie a series in whatever universe he was from.

Re: Spider-man - Sony Spider-verse shows coming to Amazon

The Spider-Man Noir live-action series in the works at Amazon has brought on Steve Lightfoot as co-showrunner, Variety has learned exclusively.

The show was first reported to be in the works at Amazon back in February. Oren Uziel is the writer on the project and will serve alongside Lightfoot as co-showrunner and executive producer.

As previously reported, the untitled series will follow an older, grizzled superhero in 1930s New York City. An individual with knowledge of the project says that the show will be set in its own universe and the main character will not be Peter Parker.

This is not Lightfoot’s first foray into the Marvel world. He previously developed and served as showrunner on “The Punisher” Netflix series starring Jon Bernthal, which ran for two seasons before Disney decided to pull back all Marvel content onto their own streaming platforms. Most recently, he created and served as showrunner on the Apple TV+ series “Shantaram,” based on the book of the same name. His other credits include “Hannibal,” “Narcos,” and “Behind Her Eyes.”

Lightfoot is repped by WME and Curtis Brown Group.

The Spider-Man Noir show is the second known project based on the Sony-controlled Marvel characters at Amazon. It was previously announced that Amazon was moving forward with the series “Silk: Spider Society” from showrunner Angela Kang, with several other shows in the works. It is unknown at this time which other Marvel characters will be featured in the other Amazon shows, though Sony currently controls over 900 such characters associated with the Spider-Man franchise.

Uziel developed the show along with “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller and former Sony boss Amy Pascal, who all executive produce. Pascal executive produces via Pascal Pictures. Sony Pictures Television is the studio, with Lord and Miller currently under an overall deal there.

Agreed. Nic Cage would be the only reason to tune in.

Re: Spider-man - Sony Spider-verse shows coming to Amazon

This report says that all the Silk writers were let go except showrunner Angela Kang. Sounds like they’re starting over.

Re: Spider-man - Sony Spider-verse shows coming to Amazon

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. The series will debut domestically on MGM+’s linear channel followed by a global launch on Prime Video. Variety exclusively reported the series was in development February 2023, though Cage was not attached at that time.

The announcement was made ahead of Amazon’s upfront presentation to advertisers in New York on Tuesday.

“Expanding the Marvel universe with ‘Noir’ is a uniquely special opportunity and we are honored to bring
this series to our global Prime Video customers,” said Vernon Sanders, head of television for Amazon MGM Studios. “The extremely talented Nicolas Cage is an ideal choice for our new superhero and the
accomplished producing team with Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, Amy Pascal, and the incredible team at
Sony is dedicated to expanding this franchise in the most authentic way.”

Cage previously played Spider-Man Noir in the Academy Award-winning animated film “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.” This will be the first time the character has been portrayed in a live-action project. Per the official logline, “Noir” will tell the story “of an aging and down on his luck private investigator (Cage) in 1930s New York, who is forced to grapple with his past life as the city’s one and only superhero.”

The show hails from Oren Uziel and Steve Lightfoot, who will also serve as co-showrunners and executive producers. They developed the series with the “Into the Spider-Verse” team of Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Amy Pascal, all of whom will also executive produce. Harry Bradbeer will executive produce and direct the first two episodes. Pascal executive produces via Pascal Pictures. The series is produced by Sony Pictures Television and Amazon MGM Studios, with Lord and Miller currently under an overall deal at Sony.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have Nicolas Cage starring in this series! No one else could bring such
pathos, pain, and heart to this singular character,” said Katherine Pope, president of Sony Pictures Television Studios. “Along with our brilliant producers and partners at Amazon MGM Studios and Prime Video, we couldn’t ask for a better team to explore this reimagining of such an iconic character in Sony’s Universe of Marvel Characters.”

The role will mark the first regular television role of Cage’s career. He has long been praised for his film work, having won the Academy Award for best actor for “Leaving Las Vegas” and getting a nomination in the same category for “Adaptation.” He is also known for his starring roles in films like “Moonstruck,” “Raising Arizona,” “Face/Off,” and the “National Treasure” and “Ghost Rider” films. His recent projects include “Pig,” “Dream Scenario,” and “Renfield.”

He is repped by WME, Stride Management, and Goodman Genow.

This is now the second Sony-Marvel project to be greenlit at Amazon. It was previously announced that Amazon was moving forward with the series “Silk: Spider Society” from showrunner Angela Kang, with several other shows in the works. It is unknown at this time which other Marvel characters will be featured in the other Amazon shows, though Sony currently controls over 900 such characters associated with the Spider-Man franchise. Sony has released multiple Spider-Man live-action films in the past and currently works with Marvel Studios on the rebooted film franchise starring Tom Holland via Columbia Pictures.

Re: Spider-man - Sony Spider-verse shows coming to Amazon

That idea to make the Silk show more of a male gaze friendly show sounds pretty horrible, and I am glad that a Silk show seems to be on the back-burner for now.

I suspect that some folks are going to lol at what I am about to say, but when I heard the news about the Spider-Man Noir show I thought to myself, hey...that Funko Pop Spider-Man Noir figure I bought for regular retail price at a comic store several years back might become a popular figure, and yup...it seems to be selling for more than MSRP.

I quit buying Funkos (mostly due to space, not money...I could easily afford a handful of figures, but where to put them in my apartment is the tough decision) several years back so the best I can hope for is that the fairly small amount I have contain a handful of figures that might "pop" (pun unintended) on the secondary market. after enough time has passed.

ETA: That being said, I have not sold any of the figures I own that really would sell for more than I paid and even make me a small profit after sales fees, etc.. I just like knowing that I have some sweet figures in my collection (such as the Shrek Donkey pop, Bebop, Rocksteady, Spider-Man Noir, and a few others that based on eBay search results are indeed a bit more valuable than the average Funko Pop figure).

Anyway, I thought my first reaction to the Noir news might be good for a chuckle or two.

Happy Hump Day everyone!
