Click on the small image for more info about Mattel's new Deadman doll... As we previously reported, Warner Bros Pictures have attached Nikolaj "Journey To Saturn" Arcel to direct a feature film adaption of DC Comics Deadman, for producers Guillermo "Hellboy" del Toro, Don Murphy and Susan Montford. Debuting in DC Comics "Strange Adventures" #205 (October 1967), the character was created by writer Arnold Drake and illustrator Carmine Infantino, with artist Neal Adams contributing impressive work to the series. Formerly a circus trapeze artist named 'Boston Brand' who performed under the name 'Deadman', complete with red costume and white corpse makeup, the character is killed during a trapeze performance by the mysterious 'Hook'. Brand's spirit is then given the power to possess any living being by the Hindu goddess 'Rama Kushna', in order to search for his killer and obtain justice.
