According to ComicBook.com, the actor’s been cast in the film as Spider-Man Noir, the wall-crawler from another universe inspired by old 1930’s pulp fiction. The character, recognizable for his all-black outfit, gun-toting nature and long trench coat, has become a favorite of fans since he debuted in the Marvel Noir comics in 2009. Since then, he’s appeared in the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon and the Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions video game.

Of course, Cage is just the latest big name to join Into the Spider-Verse, which – as the title suggests – will blow the doors open to the Spider-Man multiverse. He’ll star alongside Shameik Moore, who plays Miles Morales, Jake Johnson as Peter Parker and Hailee Steinfeld, who voices Spider-Gwen. As for the villains, Mahershala Ali is Miles’ uncle, Aaron AKA Prowler, while Liev Schreiber is the Kingpin.

As a lifelong superhero lover, Cage – who takes his stage name from Luke Cage – has starred in many projects for Marvel and DC over the years. He played the title role in the Ghost Rider movies, Big Daddy in Kick-Ass and is about to lend his tones to Superman in Teen Titans Go! The Movies. Not only that, but the actor also named his son after the character – Kal-El Cage.

He’s never been linked with Spider-Man, however, so this is a fun surprise. Still, it hasn’t been confirmed just yet and until it is, we’ll take it with a grain of salt and cross our fingers in the hope that we get to hear Cage as Spider-Man Noir when Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse swings into theaters on December 14th.
