This will only be news to the Will Eisner fans out there who were hoping for a last-minute flash of blue in the upcoming trailer for Frank Miller’s The Spirit. If you saw the leaked production photos, you saw that the character’s distinctive blue suit had been changed to black. There was speculation that Miller would change the suit’s color in post to bring it in line with the classic depiction of the character.
But AICN’s got an image of one of the expensive toys that will be marketed to collectors, and Denny Colt is still dressed in black. Cue up more cries of fandom’s despair. I’m still waiting for the trailer.
