Brendan Gleeson Joins Nicolas Cage in Spider-Noir Series

The live-action series based on Nicolas Cage’s rendition of Spider-Man Noir is moving forward with another actor joining the callsheet.

Today, Variety reported that Banshees of Inisherin and Paddington 2 actor Brendan Gleeson (pictured above in the latter as Knuckles McGinty) has joined the Amazon MGM production, which now goes by the title, Spider-Noir.

We don’t have details on what character Gleeson will be playing, other than he will be starring opposite Cage. The series’ plot, when it was announced that Cage joined the production, is described as “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.”

Gleeson’s credits are substantial, and it’s easy to imagine how his gruff, often dark portrayals will translate to a moody period piece centered on a disillusioned Spider-Man who thinks he may no longer care that he can make a difference in his city.

Spider-Noir is led by The Punisher alum Steve Lightfoot and 22 Jump Street alum Oren Uziel, with the first two episodes directed by Harry Bradbeer (Fleabag).

We don’t know when Spider-Noir will premiere, but the show will stream on MGM+ in the United States and on Prime Video elsewhere. icon-paragraph-end
