The Phantom - First Look At The Proposed Costume


I'm seriously not sure about this... When I first saw these images which depict the proposed costume for the title character I said "nooooooooo" out loud!

I guess I'm too used to the old 1996 Billy Zane movie set in 1938 with an all over Lycra suit and eye mask. I love that film! Re-booting this franchise into present day, to me, seems a little worthless and just shows me that the producers have obviously been watching too many Green Arrow episodes from Smallville! What I wasn't aware of was that this was a T.V. movie, I though this was a silver screen outing for the "Ghost Who Walks" but it's obviusly not, unless there's yet another movie being made... I've got a headache...

Synopsis:

In the two-night, four-hour event, Isabella Rossellini guest-stars as the villainous Lithia, the head of an experimental mind-control program. Also starring are Cameron Goodman as Chris Walker's love interest, Renny, and Sandrine Holt (24) as the Phantom's trusted advisor, Guran.

Suit Description:

Here's how Muse Entertainment describes the Phantom's suit: "The Phantom's body suit is woven of a high-tech, nano-matrix, dark purple fabric, which is pliable, soft and also glitters with a dark metallic sheen. The fabric is a layered micro-weave of Kevlar, Twaron and Heracron fibers, skinned with a titanium-ceramic alloy neurosymbioticmesh, resistant to heat, bladed weapons, falls, impacts and small-arms fire.

"The nano-matrix fabric actually receives and amplifies intra-muscular nerve transmissions from the person wearing the suit to affect its density and movement—similar to modern bio-electronic prosthetics. Like an insect's exoskeleton, the mesh amplifies by a factor of 2.5 times the Phantom's normal output.

"The Phantom's ballistic vest and cowl helmet/mask are reinforced with contoured Chobham armor plates and wired for cellular and radio communication. The Phantom also wears black fatigues, and his purple and black boots are similar to sticky-soled rock-climbing shoes."


I'll be watching this when it's released not matter what, but I will have my hand poised and ready to cover my eyes if it all gets a little to crap!
