The Spirit - Teaser trailer

Hi,

Again to post something besides actual doing animation work.
The Spirit, movie scheduled for next year, based on Will Eisner comic character, has been given a teaser trailer.

I cannot describe how enjoyed I was to learn that movie would be made, and while Frank Miller was not as bad choice as it could be I was a bit worried.
During the wait, Miller promised to honor the character, but now after seeing the teaser, I'm a bit disapointed. You can watch it here:

Why? Because, although it looks cool, it screams Sin City. I don't want another Sin City episode (featuring Spirit, anyhow) I want noirish, campy, light, 30-50s comics Spirit.
Although Eisner did use latest 'technology' while creating the character as Miller states, in look it was noirish version of Superman.

I hope that the movie will in look honor Eisner and Spirit. As for characters, all major characters from Spirit comics are here, so it should make a entertaining movie.
Still visually I hope it moves nearer to the actual comic.

Your comments please :)
