Spike Lee to possibly helm "Nightwatch" superhero film based on the Marvel character. In the Marvel Universe, "Nightwatch" was first introduced in 1993 as the alter ego of African-American scientist Dr. Kevin Trench. Trench witnessed a costumed man die battling terrorists while armed with invisibility-generating cloaking devices. The scientist learned that the corpse was an older version of himself, and then went on to steal the futuristic suit of armor to discover the origins of his alternate self. The suit enhanced his physical capabilities, provided him with nanotechnology that healed his wounds, and a cape that responded to his thoughts so that he could glide through the air. Trench teamed up with other superheroes in the comic books, including Spider-Man, Captain America, and Deathlok.
