The best summary I ever heard for The Spirit so far is from Frank Miller, Director of the movie, here what he said about the Spirit:
“The character has a terrifying side to him. This is a man who’s died and came back to life. So it twists into fantasy. And of course there are tons of women in it. There have to be — it’s The Spirit. They’re all in love with him, and he’s in love with all of them. You might say he’s a bit of a slut.”
A ton of pretty women! We already had two character posters featuring Eva Mendes as Sand Saref now we also have a poster of Scarlett Johansson as Silken Floss:

In Will Eisner’s The Spirit, Silken Floss (Scarlett Johansson) is a femme fatale, secretary and accomplice to the Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson), the very nemesis of the Spirit (Gabriel Macht).
