When rumors began of a Nightwatch film becoming part of Sony’s Marvel universe, there were talks of Now You See Me scribe Edward Ricourt writing the adaptation with Spike Lee rumored to direct. With a new rumor now surfacing, it seems that a new writer may be attached to the project and he’s not new to adapting superheroes.
According to That Hashtag Show, Spike Lee is still attached to direct the film with Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker set to write the script. In addition to Luke Cage, Coker has also worked on shows such as Ray Donovan and Almost Human, as well as the 2009 film Notorious.
The Nightwatch film is set to be part of Sony’s Marvel Universe, which will include the upcoming Venom film starring Tom Hardy, as well as Gina Prince-Bythewood’s Silver & Black which will team up the Spider-Man characters Black Cat and Silver Sable. A solo film for Morbius, the Living Vampire is also in the works as part of this new universe.
It’s important to know that these Sony films aren’t technically part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so we’ll have to wait for the release of Venom to see how they will go about handling the studio disconnect. All we can do at this time is hope for the best until the film hits theaters on October 5th.

10 Marvel Villains Who Should Appear In The ‘Black Panther’ Sequel
Marvel’s Black Panther is still taking the box office by storm, but that isn’t stopping people from talking about what they want from the sequel. King T’Challa and the rest of Wakanda’s most interesting characters are set to appear in Avengers: Infinity War, but that movie will focus on Thanos and the Infinity Gems instead of seeing how Black Panther’s world has evolved. Not only does the Black Panther sequel have to follow up on multiple plot points hanging around on this movie, but it also needs to introduce new villains for T’Challa and his advisers to take on.
In order for him to continue growing and become more comfortable in his leadership position, T’Challa needs to be challenged in unique ways. Part of what made Killmonger such a unique villain is that he had a personal motivation that directly challenged T’Challa’s world view, and that idea can easily be replicated and expanded upon for the sequel. Black Panther has a very specific perspective on the world, and all of these villains will come in and force him to look at things in a different way as well as challenge him physically.
