Spike Lee In Talks To Direct Film On Marvel Superhero Known As ‘Nightwatch’!

Hollywood, Hollywood News

Spike Lee is circling Sony’s Marvel film, Nightwatch as the potential director of a script which would be penned by Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker.

Nighwatch is a black scientist in the Spider-Man comics introduced first in 1993.

Here’s the official character description from Marvel:

Over ten years ago, Dr. Kevin Trench was attacked by the invisible Camouflage Cadre and rescued by a man called Nightwatch, who drove the Cadre back through a time portal before dying. Trench discovered his rescuer was an older version of himself. When his lover Ashley Croix’s plane was hijacked by A.I.M., Trench donned the Nightwatch’s super-powered battle-suit and confronted the hijackers, but the inexperienced Trench triggered an explosion, killing all aboard. Guilt-stricken, Trench exiled himself and the apparently indestructible battle-suit to a remote island. Croix, who had changed planes at the last minute, later married industrialist Damon Morelle and bore his son, Nolan, whose illness required frequent skin grafts. Financed by the secretive cabal Fold, Morelle initiated Project: Sharkskin to cure Nolan via a nano-technological bodysuit, destined to become Nightwatch’s battle-suit.

This is a part of the Marvel roster that Sony is developing, described to be  “adjacent to the MCU.” The Venom film is out later this year and the Gina Prince-Bythewood-directed Silver & Black is in development.

Lee is currently in production on Black Klansman, produced by Jordan Peele
