Watch Nicolas Cage Go “Full Cage” in ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ Behind the Scenes

Sony Pictures Entertainment

Take a look at a bit of the behind-the-scenes action released in anticipation of the home entertainment release of Sony’s fantastic Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

One of the many, many, many highlights of the Oscar-winning film was the inclusion of Spider-Man Noir, voiced by Nicolas Cage. The dark, monochromatic character was from a 1930s universe, and boy did he have some great lines.

“I imagine he’s probably a fan of the old Bogey [Humphrey Bogart] movies and [James] Cagney movies. That’s all part of that dimension,” Cage says in the slice of marketing below. “At least that’s how I like to portray the character.”

Says Paul Watling, the film’s Head of Story: “I’d heard that after his first recording session, he did a few lines. The director kept making notes, and then Nicolas just turned, he’s like, “Oh, you want me to go full Cage.”
