Nicolas Cage explains why he joined SPIDER-MAN NOIR and says he’s ‘terrified’ of AI

Nicholas Cage recently interviewed by The New Yorker and talked a bit about his next project Spider-Man Noirand shared his thoughts on artificial intelligence, which he is terrified of.

When talking about why he decided to act in Spider-Man NoirThe actor admitted that television never particularly attracted him, but “what interested me was the time I could dedicate to expressing something.”

He explained: “I saw My friend Bryan Cranston In breaking Bad staring at a suitcase for half an episode. Just him on the floor looking at a suitcase and thinking, “What’s in there? Do I do it? Don’t I do it?” I thought, “We don’t have time to do this in movies.”

“So for me it felt like an opportunity to open it up a little bit. I don’t know if the project I’m exploring has room for that. I think this is a much more popcorn-like type of episodic entertainment.”

I hope Spider-Man Noir It allows him to do something different, to explore certain depths of storytelling and acting that he’s never had the opportunity to do before.

Cage also confirmed that the series will consist of eight episodes and that it will be “more of a Pop-art mashup, like a Lichtenstein painting” with “a little bit of sparkle.”

He went on to say what he likes about the show’s potential, saying, “I don’t like violence. I don’t want to play people who hurt other people. One of the things I like about this potential show is that it’s fantasy. It’s not about people beating up other people. There are monsters involved.”

For someone who doesn’t like violence, Cage certainly stars in a lot of violent movies and even plays a sadistic serial killer in his next film, Long legs.

Cage then shared that after the interview he will have to undergo a scan for Spider-Man Noirand for another movie he signed on to do. It’s at this point that he introduces AI into the conversation.

He said: “They need to put me in a computer and match my eye color and change… I don’t know. They’ll just steal my body and do whatever they want with it via digital AI. … God, I hope not AI.

“I’m terrified of this. I’ve been very vocal about it. … And it makes me wonder, you know, where is the truth of artists going to go? Will it be replaced? Will it be transformed? Where will the heartbeat be?

“I mean, what are you going to do with my body and face when I’m dead? I don’t want you to do anything with it!”

I don’t think he’ll have to worry about those things because there are rules in place in Hollywood now. That’s part of what the actors’ strike was for.

The series will be set in 1930s New York City and will follow the adventures of this fan-favorite Spider-Man variant as he takes on the criminal underworld in his signature noir style. It was previously reported that the series would be set in a standalone universe and that the main character would not be Peter Parker.

In this noir-inspired world, Peter Parker takes on the comic book persona of Spider-Man, but with a decidedly cool twist. Dressed in a trench coat and fedora, Spider-Man Noir fights crime in the shadows of New York City, navigating a landscape filled with corruption and danger.

The character’s design and narrative draw heavily from the noir genre, incorporating elements of detective fiction and a morally ambiguous atmosphere. Over the course of his adventures, Spider-Man Noir faces off against a rogues’ gallery of villains.

The show is produced by Mr. Phil, Christopher MillerAND Amy Pascal.
