Nic Cage Talks His “Spider-Verse” Role

Nic Cage Talks His Spider Verse Role

He just voiced Superman for the “Teen Titans” film the other week, and shortly actor Nicolas Cage will be jumping to the Marvel universe as provides the voice of Spider-Man Noir in the upcoming animated feature “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse”.

Spider-Man Noir is one of several versions of Spider-Man from alternate universes that show up to help the main film’s universe’s Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) take on the Kingpin (Liev Schreiber). Speaking with EW, Cage explains the approach he took to the role:

“There are multiple Spider-Men in different dimensions that are kind of colliding together. My character’s Spider-Man Noir. He’s really Peter Parker from the ’30s. I tried to channel those noir films with [Humphrey] Bogart, and have those kinds of sounds that he might make with [James] Cagney, or Edward G. Robinson, that kind of way of talking. I tried to give the character that. It was a lot of fun. I think it should be quite funny. The movie definitely has a sense of humor, and that’s a good thing because it’s good for the whole family.”

Jake Johnson, Hailee Steinfeld and Mahershala Ali also star in the Sony Pictures release which opens December 14th.
