Deborah Del Prete on Superheroes (Conde Naste Portfolio)

“Our society is in a dark place, but these are heroes that save us. You may call Batman, Iron Man and the Spirit antiheroes, but at the end of the day they’re protecting us at a time when there’s a lot of fear. There’s terrorism, there’s a war on, and when these comic book heroes began, and when The Spirit was written, there was a war on.”

— Deborah Del Prete, executive producer of Frank Miller’s Will Eisner’s The Spirit movie, due out December 25, 2008. She is quoted in a Conde Nast Portfolio magazine story, “Superheroes Save Hollywood! (Barely.),” by Fred Schruers.
