Turn me on Deadman






The website Bloody Disgusting is reporting that Warner Brothers is developing a film project featuring the cult DC Comics character Deadman. Danish director Nikolaj Arcel is reported to be helming the picture, which will be produced by Guillermo del Toro (director of Pan's Labrynth and the upcomming two-film adaptation of The Hobbit).
Deadman, created by Arnold Drake and Carmine Infantino, first appeared in Strange Adventures #205 (cover dated October, 1967). Boston Brand was a circus performer who performed under the name Deadman who was murdered mid-performance by a mysterious gunman with a hook replacing one of his arms. Brand's ghost survived to track down his killer, only able to physically interact with the world by posessing the bodies of others
