Spider-Man: Homecoming is moving quite along in it’s production. Everyday new photos are being released giving clues as to what fans can expect from the upcoming film. However, today’s bit of news comes as a report that Sony employees have been buying large amounts of Web Of Spider-Man comics from the early 90’s. Apparently, this has been seen an indication that Nightwatch may be somehow involved in the new Spider-Man movie or will be featured in another upcoming Spider-Man film.

A quick bit of research reveals Nightwatch’s real name to be Dr. Kevin Trench. As the story goes, Dr. Trench witnesses a man in a dark costume lose his life in a battle with a group of terrorists. He goes to unmask the man only to find that it’s an older version of himself. Frightened by the whole event and what he’s just seen, he takes the costume and escapes to a remote island. He reasons that if he never wears the costume he can avoid what he’s seen and never die. However, the mystery of the costume becomes to compelling for him and he eventually wears it to discover it’s origins.

Nightwatch’s suite is made up of self-replicating nanites. It has the ability to repair itself, suppress pain, and enhance Dr. Trench’s speed, strength, and senses to superhuman levels. The mask also housed an oxygen filtration system and allowed him to see into the infrared light spectrum. Finally, he had the ability to glide, created limited darkness around him, and razor-sharp tentacles all with the use of his cape.

As of right now the reports are that it’s a possibility that Nightwatch may come to Spider-Man: Homecoming, but at this point in time, it may be too late. And it’s this exact timing that has people believing that all this research may be for another Marvel film. Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, and Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on July 7, 2017
