Director Frank Miller is giving a rather special tongue-in-cheek tone to the upcoming movie adaptation of Will Eisner’s The Spirit. To understand what I mean Just watch the bootleg preview clip of the Spirit at Io9 (here or click the picture below). It shows a bizarre fight between the Spirit (Gabriel Macht) and his nemesis the Octopus (played by Samuel L. Jackson).

I love the performance of Samuel L. Jackson who is really incredible int his scene: how funny he is! He must be somehow related to Bugs Bunny! I prefer to see him in such a role than in the role of a racist cop as in Lakeview Terrace.
