Nicolas Cage Not Returning For Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse.

Nicolas Cage has revealed that he will not be reprising his acclaimed supporting voice role as Spider-Man Noir from the Oscar-winning "Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse" in that film’s upcoming sequels.

Cage portrayed the monochromatic hero in the acclaimed Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, which introduced a number of Spider-based heroes from alternate universes. Spider-Man Noir, along with Gwen Stacy, aka Spider-Gwen, Peter B. Parker, aka Spider-Man, Spider-Ham, and Peni Parker, aka SP//dr, help Miles grow into a hero and defeat Wilson Fisk. Spider-Man Noir is a version of Peter Parker from a monochromatic universe set in the 1930s.

According to Cage, that might be the only time we see Spider-Man Noir on the big screen unless Sony recasts the role or has something else in mind.

In a recent interview, Screen Rant asked Cage if the character would return in Across the Spider-Verse. Here’s what Cage told the website:

"You’d have to ask Sony. I don’t know what’s going on with that. No one’s spoken to me about that. Ask them. I don’t know. I really don’t. I wish they would. I love Spider-Man Noir, too. I think that’s a great character. Spider-Man’s the coolest superhero. And then you combine that with Cagney and Bogart and Edward G. Robinson, come on, it’s a great character."

With Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse coming to theaters on June 2, 2023, it’s pretty hard to imagine that Cage wouldn’t have heard something by now if he was going to be involved.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse hit theaters in December of 2018, taking in more than $375 million worldwide, and winning the Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film in 2019.
