You mean Owl's first appearance in DD issue 3? I don't think that issue is meaty enough for a movie. Owl has seem to compelling in his own right, not just seem like a placeholder for a better crime boss villain down the road. The problem is Kingpin is a way better crime boss then Owl, Kingpin is far more intelligent, classy and intelligent then Owl is. Owl has come off as something other then a second rate crime boss if he is going to be the Big Bad of a movie.
