    I saw the two new pics, both were green screen shots. I know Miller is familiar with that territory, but are they making the entire movie on a digital backlot?

    Yes, I believe they are. Very much like Sin City and 300.

    I hope this doesn't end up looking like a Sin City rip-off. Hopefully it'll stay true to the comics (in vision and story).

    How can the same writer/director rip-off his own style?

    I guess it would be a rip off because it's supposed to be Will Eisner's Spirit, NOT Sin City.

    No one understood Eisner better then Miller. I have complete faith in him.

    I don't know, ever seen Mike Ploog's early work on Frankenstein, Werewolf by Night and Ghost Rider?


    As for Miller- Perhaps technically as a storyteller, but the tone of Eisner's Spirit is certainly far different from the tone of Miller's work in the last 20 years. To me that's what I see coming through in what we've seen and read. I don't see Eisner's tone coming through yet.

    Nothing I've seen about this project looks like Eisner at all.

    Frank Miller, Mike Ploog, Tim Sale, Darwyn Cooke, Bruce Timm, Matt Wagner, James O'Barr, Jeff Smith, Dave Sim, Michael T. Gilbert(Mr. Monster), Paul Pope, and Sam Keith(with The Maxx), they are all excellent Eisner followers with their own touch.

    I guess there are looser definitions of 'understanding Eisner' just as some folks believe SInger 'understands Superman.'

    .....well, Singer certainly did understand Donner's Superman and it showed. That's what he was going for.

    The artists I mentioned are very Eisner influenced. Ofcourse, being influenced does not necessarily mean copying exactly what the influence did.

    No, the fact is SInger DIDN'T understand Donner's Superman. At least the content of the character. In the Donner films Superman does EVERYTHING he can for Lois's benefit. In SR, the first chance he gets, he screws her over. Sorry, it's the exact opposite. Sorry you don't understand Donner's films either.
    Eisner is so infuluential- EVERYONE is influenced by Eisner whether they know it or not.

    Miller's just not showing signs of getting it done.

    Did we see the same film? How did he screw her over, exactly? Look, don't answer. This is not the Superman forums and your answer will not convince me anyway. Besides, I can see you did not understand SR, and that's your fault not Singer's.

    You're right this isn't the Superman forums, I've posted there for quit awhile. But I did understand SR. If you care to discuss I'm open to PM's. And it is Singer's fault, it was his movie.

    And to answer the question. He was involved sexually involved with Lois without her knowing he was also Clark and then he left for 5 years w/o saying goodbye. Sounds like he screwed her over to me. If you're in a sexually relationship with someone, you owe them at the very least a goodbye under those circumstances.

    And i said this months ago, but everyone said "Frank Miller will respect Eisner's vision" I see no respect so far.

    ...Really? From what I've seen, there's just as many people calling for Miller's head last year as there is now. :o

    As for the topic--yes, it's green-screen, but I'm pretty sure it won't be B&W, so it's not really going to be a Sin City rip-off.
