Even more Spiderverse

Spider-Man Noir, notably seen in the animated film Spider-Man: New Generation, is not a simple superhero. In the New York of the 1930s where the plot will take place, he is not only the city's only vigilante, but also a private detective as old as he is unlucky. To play the character in black and white, Nicolas Cage will be back.
