Sam Raimi Stax from over at IGN is reporting that Sam Raimi is looking to bring almost the entire roster of pulp superheroes from now defunct comic publisher Street & Smith Publications to the big screen in an as-yet untitled film. No word on the plot that'll find all these characters inhabiting the same universe but so far Doc Savage, The Shadow and The Avenger are confirmed to be appearing in the film. Raimi apparently plans to direct the film himself from a script by Siavash Farahani (IMDB profile shows a single directorial credit), who wrote RUSE, an adpatation of the CrossGen Comic title, for Disney. Read more about it over at IGN HERE. In the meantime, Raimi's got his hands full with a fiesty little webcrawler who'll be kicking some major ass in SPIDER-MAN 3.

Extra Tidbit: Street & Smith stopped publishing their pulp titles in 1949. Before anyone attacks in the strike backs, I didn't say they stopped publishing completely, just pulp titles.

This sounds AWESOME. I'm sure Raimi will pull it off. I have to say I'm a bit jealous. I wish I'd thought of that.

coolness

We've been long overdo for more Doc Savage. Buckaroo Banzai was a good layover, but we need the real stuff.

The Shadow Knows!

I was so into the radio show as a kid. I liked the movie, but regardless of it, I loved the tapes of the old show. I was that weird little kid running around saying "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!" I'm into this. But I'm slightly weary of it turning into a pulpy Extraordinary League of Gentleman with lots of characters getting little bits and not really developing them.

I have the entire collection of THE SHADOW radio plays from way back in the day (they were a gift, but yes, I AM that much of a geek) and I loved every single one of them. The movie with Baldwin was so-so. But I can't wait for this...Raimi...pulp comics...it'll be like Sky Captain...but better (I liked Sky Captain, too).

WHAAAA?

Um, Street & Smith did NOT stop publishing in 1949. You are incorrect. You are wrong. You... wrote that, in the extra tidbit. I guess I will go back to my basement and play some more World of Warcraft. Yes, I laughed hardest at that episode of South Park. Those guys are nerds. NERDS.
