Brendan Gleeson has joined the cast of the upcoming Spider-Man Noir series at MGM+ and Amazon Prime Video.

This marks one of Gleeson’s first announced project since his Academy Award and Golden Globe nominated turn in “The Banshees of Inisherin.” 

Gleeson will star in the series opposite series lead Nicolas Cage as well as the recently cast Lamorne Morris. 

The series, now titled “Spider-Noir,” was formally ordered to series in May with Cage in the lead role. 

The series was in development in February 2023, though Cage was not attached at that time.

The show will debut domestically on MGM+’s linear channel and then globally on Amazon Prime Video.

The official logline reads: “Noir” will tell the story “of an aging and down on his luck private investigator (Cage) in 1930s New York, who is forced to grapple with his past life as the city’s one and only superhero.”

The show hails from Oren Uziel and Steve Lightfoot, who will also serve as co-showrunners and executive producers.

They developed the series with the “Into the Spider-Verse” team of Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Amy Pascal, all of whom will also executive produce.

Harry Bradbeer will executive produce and direct the first two episodes. Pascal executive produces via Pascal Pictures.

The series is produced by Sony Pictures Television and Amazon MGM Studios, with Lord and Miller currently under an overall deal at Sony.

This is now the second Sony-Marvel project to be greenlit at Amazon.

It was previously announced that Amazon was moving forward with the series “Silk: Spider Society” from showrunner Angela Kang, with several other shows in the works. 

Exact details on Gleeson’s roles are being kept under wraps, but he will play the show’s villain.

In addition to his numerous critically-acclaimed film roles, Gleeson has been a part of several successful TV shows in the past few years. Those include the crime drama “Mr. Mercedes,” which was based on Stephen King’s Bill Hodges novel series, as well as the Showtime miniseries “The Comey Rule,” in which Gleeson played former US President Donald Trump. 

Gleeson also won an Emmy in 2009 for portraying Winston Churchill in the TV movie “Into the Storm.” 

In film, beyond “Banshees of Inisherin,” he is known for his roles in features like “In Bruges,” “The Guard,” “Cavalry,” multiple entries in the “Harry Potter” franchise, “Braveheart,” and “Gangs of New York.”
