Sony is pushing hard to bang out as many Spider-Verse films as they can right now. Along with Venom, Into the Spider-Verse and Silver & Black, there are reports that we are also potentially looking at a spin-off film based around the Marvel hero, Nightwatch. What makes the project all the more interesting is that, according to reports, Sony is looking at Spike Lee as a possible director of the project.
If you aren’t familiar with the character, who first appeared in Web of Spider-Man in the 1990’s, here is the Wikipedia bio:
Nightwatch was Doctor Kevin Trench, who witnessed a costumed man die battling some terrorists armed with invisibility-generating ‘cloaking” devices, and unmasked the corpse to learn that it was an older version of himself. His first appearance was in Web of Spider-Man #99.
Freaking out, Trench stripped the costume from “his” body and fled to a deserted island, reasoning that if he just never wore the suit or went home, he wouldn’t die. Events conspired to bring him back, as the criminal Alfredo stole one of the costume gloves after washing up on the island and being nursed to health by Trench. After Alfredo had been dealt with, Trench decided that he couldn’t avoid his destiny, and decided to investigate the costume’s origins.
