Marvel has Marvel Cinematic Universe, Sony has their own version called the Sony’s Marvel Universe. Their first movie will be Venom (check out my earlier blogs) due out October 2018. Their next movie will be Morbius (check out my earlier blogs), production will start later this year. Some other movies in development are Silver & Black and Nightwatch. This blog will talk about Nightwatch.
Out of all the characters in spiderman universe, Nightwatch is a surprise to me to be picked for a movie. In March 2018, Spike Lee was in talks to direct this movie.
Nightwatch first appeared Web of Spiderman #99 (April 1993) published by Marvel Comics created Terry Kavanagh, Alex Saviuk, and Joe Rubinstei. The character, Dr. Kevin Trench, first appeared in Web of Spider-man #97 (February 1993).
Kevin Trench witnessed a costumed crime fighter dying while batting the bad guys with cloaking devices. As he approached him, he unmasked him. Kevin saw a future him inside the costume. He thought to himself, if he never wore that costume, he wouldn’t die. However, curiosity led him to pursue about the costume. His costume enhanced his strength, agility, and reflexes. His costume allows him to be invisible.
A recent copy of Web of Spiderman #99 CGC 9.6 sold for $95. This might be the book to get now before production starts.
