"Variety is reporting Guillermo del Toro will be producing an adaptation of DC Comics' Deadman for Warner Bros. Originally created in 1967 by Arnold Drake and Carmine Infantino, trapeze artist Boston Brand was granted the power to possess any living being by the goddess Rama Kushna after he was murdered. He's been on a constant quest for his killer and eternal peace ever since."
I was totally jazzed to read this blurb the other day. Deadman has been one of my favorite characters for a long time and his costume is elegant in its simplicity. The story is a good one and with del Toro producing we know that he will be able to influence the look of the picture and in something like this, LOOK is everything.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
