Word on the street is that Hollywood’s resident eccentric, Nicolas Cage has jumped feet first to lend his voice to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Cage, who is no stranger to a Marvel film after his role in Ghost Rider, is following up his stint as the voice of Superman in Teen Titans Go To The Movies to voice another incarnation of the web-hero gang, Spider-Man Noir.

This alternate version of Spider-Man is a darker take on Spider-Man and the mythos is set in 1933 – during the Great Depression and is a part of the Marvel Noir universe. Should be right up Cage’s street.

Since its inception, the character has appeared in numerous media adaptations, such as television series and video games. He appears in the animated Ultimate Spider-Man series and is one of the playable characters of Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions.

Directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman from a screenplay by Phil Lord. The film features the voice of Shameik Moore as Miles Morales. Jake Johnson is joining the cast as Miles’ reluctant mentor, Peter Parker, with Liev Schreiber playing the larger-than-life crime lord Kingpin, Hailee Steinfeld playing the spunky, free-spirited Spider-Gwen, Oscar winner Mahershala Ali as Miles’ influential uncle Aaron, Brian Tyree Henry playing Miles’ father Jefferson, Luna Lauren Velez as Miles’ mother Rio, and Lily Tomlin as Aunt May.

With San Diego Comic-Con coming up at the end of July, expect a new trailer to land. Hopefully, we might just get our first glimpse of Cage’s Spider-Man Noir.

Cage’s next insanity project comes in the form of Mandy, where again he embarks on a violent and bloody journey of revenge.
