Additionally, Yahoo! has premiered a featurette for Frank Miller’s upcoming The Spirit. The video offers a behind-the-scenes look at the history behind the character and the making of the movie. Highlights include:
– Samuel L. Jackson as the Octopus, wearing a never-before-seen samurai garb
– The Octopus beating down on the Spirit while shouting, "There’s nothing I like better than kicking your ass all night long!"
– Frank Miller’s insight into the character: "He can’t fly, he’s not super strong, but he can take an awful lot of punishment."
– Beautiful women, including Scarlett Johansson’s Silken Floss, Eva Mendes’ Sand Saref and Paz Vega’s Plaster of Paris
– Frank Miller’s claim that "this film is not a tribute to Will Eisner, it’s a tribute to The Spirit."

Well, The Spirit certainly looks intriguing but it doesn't look like The Spirit, despite Frank Miller's quote that it is a tribute to The Spirit rather than Will Eisner. "I'm gonna kill you all kinds of dead." is not something I think Denny Colt would ever say unless he had been created by Frank Miller or possibly Todd McFarlane or Rob Liefeld.The Watchmen however continues to impress me.
