    Is he going to be in every comic book movie now?

    Also, is that outfit an example of stuff that looks good in comics looking silly in real life? Or just a silly, old character?

    I don't know how to feel about this movie.

    Nope. Comic Octopus always just wore normal suits. The only things special about his look was the distinctive purple/yellow gloves and the fact that you never saw his face (it was always in shadow).

    The silly costumes are all Miller.

    Also, Darwyn Cooke's 12 issue run on the Spirit is amazing and you should read it.

    So does anyone else see it as The Spirit saying, "Face My Power," and Oct saying, "Kill you etc,"? Am I really dense for not seeing that right away?

    I dunno, but it looks like (given his tie flutterin on the Oct poster) that he might be facing down Oc, and it is from a FP POV, and he's maybe saying, "Face my Power!" I dunno.

    The only Spirit I've ever read was a free preview in Wizard (or something). I thought he was just a detective with a little mask that faked his death. Apparently he's a ghost?

    I'd rather have the bad guy be all shadowy with a voice altering effect, and then reveal at the very end that, holy shit, it's Jackson. That's much more interesting than whatever the hell is going on with that poster.

    Frank Miller's Spirit is apparently going to be some comically over the top irreverent farce type thing, in case anyone has not figured that out yet. Sort of a live-action Tom and Jerry thing going on. That concept has a lot of potential, but I am not sure why he is doing it with the Spirit.

    I've heard he had some really in depth conversations with Eisner about his vision for the movie, and Eisner was all for it I guess.

    Wait, I thought the Spirit was actually dead in Will Eisner's stuff, but he came back. Or something. (Note: I'm more familiar with Darwyn Cook's Spirit than I am Eisner's.)

    he was thought to have been killed but actually went into suspended animation due to experimentation by doctor cobra, awakening in wildwood cemetary (such a great name) and deciding to punch crime in its stupid head.

    Given that other line from the Octopus, I'm surprised the line isn't, "I'm gonna kill you eight kinds of dead."

    What is this, the Firefly school of snappy dialogue? This line gets a D-minus.

    Because if he's dead, and he's still beating guys up and the Octopus has just beat the crap out of someone he cared about, that's the time to get specific.

    Apparently the script is entirely set in Ye Olde Asgard, i.e. no Donald Blake, no modern anything. Man, a Norse epic in the style of a Branagh Shakespeare.... I'm confused and aroused.
