Very awesome of him!!
I do wish he would have given a straight "Hell yeah. Absolutely" to the Ray Stevenson playing Phantom's father idea. Heh!
You know, it's really enlightning to hear that this project is being approached by being respectful to the source, after just having read that Warner Bros. wants to take Shazam along with Superman the Dark Knight dark route. (Sighs) I hope The Phantom is more on the lighter Iron Man tone.
