Spider-Man: Into The Spider-verse reportedly adding Nicolas Cage

The character is just one of many different Spider-Man versions that will be featured in the movie, including Miles Morales, Spider-Gwen, and the original, Peter Parker.

Welcome to a fearless new world where Nicolas Cage is playing Spider-Man. Spider-Man. Cage won't be the Spidey most people are familiar with, however. And now he's going to be Spider-Man.

Nicolas Cage has officially joined the cast of Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse and is set to voice Spider-Man Noir in the upcoming animated film. Embedded with the super powers of a spider, he battles the criminal underworld in New York City as a brutal and feared vigilante, known as the "Spider-Man", avenging the death of his uncle Ben Parker at the hands of the city's major crime lord, Norman Osborn.

I have no idea how this character will fit into Into the Spider-Verse. But with all this multiversal mayhem, Into the Spider-Verse is looking like it might be unlike any other comic book story ever told on the big screen - and that's an exciting notion to consider. Cage was actually close to playing the Man of Steel in a live-action movie back in the 1990s, when he was cast in Tim Burton's Superman Lives.

As the trailer already teased, Spider-Verse will bring us multiple Spider-Men - from protagonist Miles Morales, to an older Peter Parker, and fan-favourite Spider-Gwen.

"Into the Spider-Verse" (in theaters December 14), which is produced by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller ("The Lego Movie", "21 Jump Street"), focuses mainly on Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore) as Spider-Man and how he copes with becoming a superhero.

This will actually be the second animated superhero movie that Cage will lend his voice to this year-he also plays Superman in Teen Titans Go!

The character, a different version of Peter Parker who's from the year 1933, was created by David Hine, Fabrice Sapolsky, and Carmine Di Giandomenico.

Elsewhere, the film has Hailee Steinfeld playing Gwen Stacy, Lily Tomlin as Aunt May, and Liev Schreiber voicing the Kingpin.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse will also be at Comic-Con this month.
