Sony is preparing a large cast of Spider people to have them appear during Miles Morales’ (Shameik Moore) journey in the Metaverse, in the highly anticipated sequel Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Versebut Nicolas Cage will not be a Spider-People of these. In fact, he will miss the old ally Spider-Man Noir, played precisely by Nicolas Cage. In a recent interview, Cage revealed that Sony didn’t ask him to reprise his role as the monochromatic Spidey. Yet Spider-Man Noir was one of Miles’ key allies.

But what was Nicolas Cage doing as Spider-Man Noir?
Even among the multitude of unique spiders from alternate universes, Spider-Man Noir was one of the most visually striking allies to arrive in Miles’ world. Noir was a Peter Parker from an alternate universe from the 1930s, and thus wore a trench coat and hat typical of a detective in noir crime fiction. Cage thoroughly enjoyed the role, using Humphrey Bogart’s films and James Cagney’s performances as inspiration to create a more grizzled Spider-Man.
When asked if this character would return for the sequel, however, Cage deferred to Sony’s decisions. Having said that, however, he didn’t completely close the door to his return, because he liked this role:
You should ask Sony. I don’t know what’s going on. Nobody told me about it. Ask him. I do not know. Really not. I wish they did. I also love Spider-Man Noir. I think he’s a great character. Spider-Man is the coolest superhero. And then you combine that with Cagney and Bogart and Edward G. Robinson, come on, he’s a great character.
So who will be in the cast of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse?
While Nicolas Cage won’t be reprising his role from Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, a number of actors from the previous film have already been confirmed. First of all Shameik Moore, of course, who will return as Morales. Also two of his most important allies, Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) and Peter B. Parker (Jake Johnson) will join him as he explores the Spider-Verse. Bryan Tyree Henry will return as Miles’ father, Jefferson Davis. With him Oscar Isaacwho will appear as Miguel O’Hara aka Spider-Man 2099, after his cameo at the end of Into the Spider-Verse.
Even the writers and producers Phil Lord And Chris Miller they’re returning after guiding the original film to massive success. To complete the cast of the film there are Jason Schwartzman, Daniel Kaluuya, Issa Rae and Luna Lauren Vélez among others.
Considering that Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Ham and SP//dr weren’t featured in the trailer for Across the Spider-Verse, it seems likely that even John Mulaney and Kimiko Glenn they will be absent this time.
