Prime Video's Spider-Man Noir TV Show Lands The Punisher's Showrunner - Report

Steve Lightfoot also previously worked on the Hannibal series.


A man with previous experience bringing a grizzled Marvel character to TV will help do the same for Amazon Prime Video's Spider-Man Noir show. Variety reports Steve Lightfoot--who served as showrunner on The Punisher with Jon Bernthal--will work in that same position alongside Mortal Kombat (2021) writer Oren Uziel.

The Spider-Man Noir live-action show was previously revealed to be in development earlier this year. Set in 1930s New York City, the series will see an older superhero web-slinging through the Big Apple in its own standalone universe. But it's been reported this won't be Peter Parker behind the mask.

In addition to co-showrunner, Uziel is also writing and executive producing Spider-Man Noir. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse writers/producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller will also serve as executive producers on the show too. As for Lightfoot, he also previously worked on NBC's Hannibal (2013-15) and co-created the Apple TV+ drama series Shantaram. He also has expressed his desire to make a Blade TV show in the past.

Now Spider-Man Noir isn't the only collaboration between Sony and Amazon on Marvel characters. There is a Prime Video and MGM+ series for Silk: Spider Society in development as well. The two companies are reportedly working on other projects too, with Sony supposedly controlling 900 different Spider-Man characters for TV and film.
