Purple Crime Fighting Time! Trailer for the SyFy Channel’s new Phantom

Really, he’s wearing purple. If you’re going to go and change the Phantom’s costume completely, shouldn’t you also change the color, too? Why bother holding onto the ridiculous purple if you’ve already chucked the costume? I’m just sayin’. Anyways, that’s probably one of the things you’ll be wondering when RHI Entertainment’s 21st century version of The Phantom lands on the SyFy Channel as a mini-series (and backdoor pilot) sometime in 2010. The first trailer for it below.

The legendary superhero returns in this modern-day and action packed miniseries event. When Kit Walker (Ryan Carnes) learns of his father’s death, the adventurous young man inherits the mantle of his superhero father. As the new Phantom, the 21st in the Walker line, Kit vows to uphold and honor his ancestors’ creed—to fight crime and injustice throughout the world.

Starring Ryan Carnes, Cas Anvar, Isabella Rossellini, Sandrine Holt , Cameron Goodman, Trevor Hayes, Robert Crooks, Ellen David, and directed by Paolo Barzman.
