Years ago, Sam Raimi wanted to bring The Shadow to the bring screen. He was denied the opportunity, and the film was ultimately given to other hands, which hugely failed whilst Raimi went on to kick off the very successful Spider-Man franchise. But in late 2006, it looked like the filmmaker was getting a second chance. Fast forward to this year, and Raimi was still in, but only as producer, and David Slade's name was knocked around for the director's chair.

But this new rumor is much, much sweeter -- one that should help the poor Shadow erase memories of the 1994 production and give us a whole new world to geek out over.
