They're all very good suggestions.
Still, I can see some people will probably tell you that you forgot to add a 45th suggestion. "Keep Frank Miller away" or something like that. LOL! Well, I liked The Spirit(sue me), but yeah, I don't think The Phantom would be for him. Besides, he's already busy with Buck Rogers.
Also, if Sam Worthington is going to do this, I guess they're going to have to wait for him to finish Clash of The Titans. How long till' that movie begins production, I wonder.
