When "The Spirit" panel hits the 2008 San Diego Comic Con in late July, director/screenwriter Frank Miller brought forward a batch of footages letting fans to get sneak peek into the film. Now, one of the videos shown there entitled "When Titans Clash" has leaked out.
The clip highlights on the brawl between the hero, the Spirit, and his archenemy, Octopus, in what seems to be a swamp. It takes off when Gabriel Macht's heroic character surfacing out of the swamp's water, but before he can fully emerge from the water, Octopus hit him again and again with a severed head. Then, Spirit takes a wrench and smack Octopus. The fight scene is pretty much hilarious with the two trying to knock down the other with any means they find.
An adaptation of Will Eisner's comic strips, "The Spirit" centers its story on a rookie cop who returns from the dead as the Spirit. Tracking down his forever foe Octopus, he fights off crime in the Central City and while doing that he is faced with a list of seductive ladies who either wants to kill or love the masked hero. Set to be released on December 25, it stars also Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Eva Mendes, Sarah Paulson and Jaime King.
