'The Spirit'

This week, the producers of Frank Miller’s big-screen adaptation of “The Spirit” return to Will Eisner’s classic hero with a three-part story that kicks off in issue #26 of DC’s ongoing “The Spirit” comic book series — but this time, their focus will be on the hero’s notorious femme fatales. MTV News sat down for a chat with film and comics veteran Michael Uslan and his longtime creative partner F.J. DeSanto to discuss their upcoming run on “The Spirit” and why an examination of the series’ leading ladies is way past due.

“This is the most daunting, challenging, terrifying thing I have ever done in my career,” said Uslan of taking the reins on DC’s “The Spirit” series — no throwaway remark, given Uslan’s role as producer of all the various Batman movies (as well as many other comics-inspired films of the last few decades) and his long list of comics writing credits.

“To me, The Spirit is the greatest creative work ever to come out of the comic book industry,” Uslan told MTV News. (Read on for more from Uslan and DeSanto on their three-part story arc in “The Spirit.”)
