Sony had an unexpectedly good year last year with their Spider-centric properties. For starters, Venom managed to make over $850 million worldwide. Even without having Spider-Man himself in the story, it managed to engage fans all around the world, making for a fun, harmless ride in theaters. But the big splash came in the form of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. It may have only taken in $367.9 million worldwide, but from a creative standpoint, it was unparalleled.

Of course, the flashiest aspect was the animation. It looked as though a comic book had actually come to life. But even from a story perspective, it was strong, essentially acting as a team-up movie, with six different versions of Spider-Man working together. One of these versions was none other than Spider-Man Noir, the black-and-white brawler played by the one and only Nicolas Cage.

Now, We Got This Covered is reporting that that character may be getting his own film. According to the outlet’s sources, Sony is developing a spin-off for the character. If true, this means they are working on at least three different films — one direct sequel, one Spider-Women spin-off, and then this Noir version. Clearly, Sony has big plans for this franchise. Either that, or they’re throwing as much as they can at the walls and seeing what sticks.
