First Look: Samuel L. Jackson as The Octopus in The Spirit

Comic-Con Magazine has debuted the first official finished photo of Samuel L. Jackson as The Octopus in Frank Miller's The Spirit. He may have looked goofy in the green screen photos, but in his finished form, Jackson looks pretty damn intense. The Octopus is The Spirit's arch-enemy, a meek lab assistant who reinvents himself as a psychotic nightmare that kills anyone unfortunate enough to see his face, who has plans to wipe out Central City. We've already seen the first teaser trailer and now this new photo. With the release date moved up to Christmas Day, I'm curious to know how many of you are now truly looking forward to seeing The Spirit?

You can bet your ass we'll be seeing plenty of The Spirit at Comic-Con this July. The latest issue of their official magazine kicks a lot of ass, so make sure you check out the insides of it, too.

The Spirit is both written and directed by legendary comic book author Frank Miller, who previously worked with Robert Rodriguez to direct segments of Sin City. The film is based Will Eisner's newspaper comic strip of the same name that originally debuted in 1940. The Spirit will hit theaters on December 25th, Christmas Day, this year. If you haven't seen the first teaser trailer already, make sure you check it out!

Cool. I wonder who'll play the octupus in The Spirit 2? Of course if they get that far.

Looks like Spiderman's Doc Ock meets Batman's The Riddler with a little Liberace thrown in.

It's okay, Sam. I don't think Frank Miller's capable of killing your career. You don't have to cry...

lol #3 They really need a strong full trailer because to the people who don't know what this is about this looks cheesy/stupid/Sin City rip-off etc... I'll keep open minded for now though.

@Alex - "He may have looked goofy in the green screen photos..." So, in addition to not placing updates on the main page to inform readers when pictures are removed, you actually provide link bait to stories that had the photos removed a month ago.
