Lionsgate has released a great behind-the-scenes featurette on the making of Frank Miller’s The Spirit, which, like Sin City before it, was shot entirely on green screen stages. The featurette looks at the origin of The Spirit, going all the way back to Will Eisner’s comic strips and Frank Miller’s friendship with Eisner. As fantastic as this video is, they finally feature some of the more cheesy and over-the-top scenes that we complained about back during Comic-Con. Everytime I watched some new from this movie, I wonder whether I’m not thinking straight and if it really will be fantastic? As Frank Miller says, this isn’t a tribute to Will Eisner, this is a tribute to The Spirit! Is anyone convinced that it may be good yet?
