I guess Lionsgate is going with, “Give them what they know” by offering up this first look at Frank Miller’s upcoming “The Spirit” movie, which he will write and direct. It’s actually not a new image at all, and in fact is pretty old. I think Miller drew it a while back as part of a Will Eisner (the original creator of The Spirit) tribute or something, but I could be wrong. I just know that it’s been around well before Frank was given the movie. In any case, here’s your first look at the poster. By the reflection of people walking around, I’m guessing it was snapped at Comic Con?
Denny Colt returns from the beyond as The Spirit, a hero whose mission is to fight evil from his secret lair.
The film is still in search of much of its cast, including the leading man, but Samuel L. Jackson has already signed on as the Octopus, the villain of the piece.
The Spirit will move you in 2008.
