Spike Lee. Spider-Man Spin-Off?
Nightwatch is a lesser known z grade character that would comprise the non-Spider-Man villain-verse of films such as Venom, Morbius, and The Black Cat/Silver Sable Films.
Via The Wrap:
Insiders caution that Spike Lee’s potential involvement is in the very early stages, but that he could potentially direct the superhero film written by “Luke Cage” showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker.
“Nightwatch” centers on African-American scientist Dr. Kevin Trench, a man who witnessed a costumed man die battling some terrorists armed with invisibility-generating cloaking devices.
The kicker is that Trench unmasked the corpse to learn that it was an older version of himself. The character was first introduced in 1993’s “Web of Spider-Man No. 97,” and even has his own short lived, self-titled series.
Sony Executive Vice President Palak Patel is supervising the “Nightwatch” development along with the rest of the “Spider-Man” universe properties.
