Now that he’s off Spider-Man 4, it sounds like he might be eager to step behind the camera to direct a new take on this pulp hero.
Yeah…this is pretty much the coolest rumour I’ve heard in my life. I’m a huge Raimi fan and a pretty big Shadow geek (the radio show, not the Baldwin debacle), so this would make me really happy.
The Shadow was an excellent radio show, and Raimi could do really good things with it. I still have a soft spot for the Baldwin film, thanks to my youth and my giant collection of Shadow action figures.
Isn’t Darkman already basically The Shadow injected with Raimi’s style of horror & frenetic camerastule?
Did a little searching and read that Darkman was the result of a failed attempt to get the rights for The Shadow. And I don’t know what the general consensus is, but I LOVED Darkman. And that character appeals much more to me than The Shadow. But I guess if Raimi still wants to do The Shadow, apparantly Darkman was not all he wanted to do with that concept.
