There’s always trouble when a beloved comics character – or someone from any source material – arrives in movie-form with a significant change. We’ve seen it with The X-Men, and we saw how the Daredevil faithful reacted to Michael Clarke Duncan as Kingpin.
Now Frank Miller – a man who knows a little something about the changeable whims of comics fandom - has decided to make his own change in adapting Will Eisner’s The Spirit. In the original, the main character Denny Colt does his crime bashing in a blue coat. If this new action figure image sent to Ain’t It Cool represents the truly finished look of the man in the movie, he’ll be in all-black duds.
Of course, The Spirit has been shot much the same way as Sin City, so there’s plenty of time to switch it again…
