Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Accidentally Gave Nicolas Cage Some Pornographic Lines

spider-man noir into the spider-verse movie

Nic Cage is known for being an ... eccentric performer (have you seen Mandy?) and even in a family-friendly animated movie like Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, he still ends up saying the craziest lines. In the film, Cage voices Spider-Man Noir, a Spider-Man from the 1930s who loves to say silly slang from the era. Most of these lines were improvised for the film, and it turns out that one of these made-up lines was straight-up a real pornographic sex act.

We literally had him record something, and then it was in the movie...And then someone bothered to Google it, and it turned out to be a filthy, pornographic act, and we had to spend a lot of money.

In Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Spider-People from across the multiverse meet for the first time. This includes Nic Cage's Spider-Man Noir, a fedora and trenchcoat wearing hero from the rough and tumble 1930s. Cage is really funny in the role, and a few of his lines involve saying improvised phrases like "Biscuit-Boxer" or "Turtle Slapper." According to co-director Rodney Rothman, they made Cage record about "50 different weird slangs."

Apparently, no one in production is up to date on their pornographic slang, because one of the lines that Nicolas Cage read was a real sex act. Rodney Rothman told Collider that the line ended up in the movie and was thankfully caught by someone who was presumably pervy enough for the line to ring some bells.

We can only guess at this point as to what the line was, but if you are familiar with your porn terms, pick out the one that sounds like something someone would have said in the 30s.

Couple this with the fact that John Mulaney (the voice of Spider-Ham) accidentally improvised a bunch of curses into his dialogue and you've got a strangely NSFW Spider-Man movie on your hands.

Well, you won't find any pornographic terms in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, but you should still go see the movie anyway because it's awesome. The story follows the origin of Miles Morales, who learns how to become Spider-Man from different Spider-People from across the multiverse. It's super fun, witty, and even inspirational, and you should check it out if you get a chance.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is in theaters right now. The movie is already getting talks of a sequel, no doubt thanks to positive reviews and some early box office dollars.
