Sam Raimi to Direct "Doc Savage"?

by | December 7, 2006 | Comments

Yes, there were superheroes before the Golden Age of DC and Marvel, and it looks like director Sam Raimi might be bringing a few of those old heroes back to life — yep, more than one in the same movie!

From IGN Movies: "IGN has learned that several pulp heroes of yesteryear will be brought to life on the big-screen courtesy of none other than Dark Man and Spider-Man filmmaker Sam Raimi.

The project would unite a number of famous pulp heroes from Street and Smith Publications, which had once been among the top pulp publishers.

Characters that we were informed would be included in the film are Doc Savage, The Shadow and The Avenger, and quite possibly other (or all) major Street and Smith characters."
