Spike Lee to Direct Spider Man Spin-Off, ‘Nighthawk’

Acclaimed film director Spike Lee and Luke Cage creator Cheo Hodari Coker are reportedly collaborating on new Spider Man spin-off, Nightwatch, for Sony.

Screenrant reports the Brooklyn filmmaker is set to direct the picture while Coker is penning the screenplay. Sony is currently developing several films based within the Spider Man universe, including the Tom Hardy-headlined Venom which hits theaters this fall.

The character Nightwatch made his Marvel Comics debut in 1993’s Web of Spider-Man #97. According to Screenrant:

“The series follows sometime villain, sometime antihero Dr. Kevin Trench, a physician who witnesses a costumed superhero being killed in battle… only to discover that the man is a futuristic version of himself. Nightwatch’s super suit includes a variety of bells and whistles that include a cape that responds to his subconscious thoughts, as well as technology that boosts his strength and endurance, and allows his costume to be self-repairing.”
