Default Re: Tim Boyle's The Phantom

I read that this has a budget of like $87 million. Not sure who the heck would want a fund a movie like this with that type of money.
That was the initial thought when the funding for Donner's Superman was being done.

Rebooting a character for the cinema is not that simple.
Batman Begins? Incredible Hulk? Casino Royale?

I'm not sold on Boyle's ideas. I'm not sure what he's getting at with the costume changes. I guess people can't deal with a purple costume and a mask. Does the suit need to be more high tech or something?
Simple. What works in comics does not always translate as well on screen. Hence, changes are needed. Example; Batman's suit in BB & TDK, Wolverine's suit on X-Men films, and Night Owl, Ozymandias and Silk Spectre's costume changes in Watchmen. And there's also the "arguably" appropriate costume changes of Daredevil and The Spirit.
