Regarding as to what color The Phantom's costume will be, I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being more greyish rather than purple. Heck, I wouldn't mind if he wears a dark blue suit like in the Scandinavian comics.
It doesn't need to be black leather. If it's black at all it will already suck.
I'm not having a good feeling about this. I mean, as much as I want a new Phantom movie I'm not desperate. It's too early to say anything but so far no good feelings. He has way too many references to other movies, big hits or not. I would like to start hearing his own ideas. The way he talks implies lack of own creativity. You don't see Bryan Singer or Nolan mentioning other superhero movies when they are talking about their own. They don't need that, they can hold their own. We will see. I hope they don't mess it up. Problem with the Phantom is that even though he is big in some countries he still doesn't have the big fan base of heroes like Batman, so it's easier to be more comfortable and inclined to unnecessary changes.
