Back in September we had heard that Sony was considering yet another Spider-Man Marvel Universe spin-off film based on the character of Nightwatch. Now our friends over at That Hashtag Show has confirmed that Oldboy director Spike Lee attached to direct. While Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker has been hired to pen the script after a draft was written by Edward Ricourt (Now You See Me). This movie is expected to be connected to other Spider-Man films including Venom, Silver and Black and the rumored Morbius the Living Vampire.
Nightwatch tells the story of Doctor Kevin Trench, a man who witnesses a future version of himself die while wearing the Nightwatch costume.
Nightwatch has no set release date
