Doc Savage


Doc Savage was one of the most popular pulp magazine heroes of the 30s and 40s. So much so that his fictional fame lasted for decades as he inspired countless radio, television, and film programs, as well as several comic book adaptations. As we’ve seen from past aborted attempts at bringing other pulp heroes like The Shadow or The Spirit to the big screen, however, being popular in the 30s and 40s isn’t a guarantee that a hero is going to have the right stuff to make for a successful modern film franchise. In spite of the semi-recent failures that still linger in the memories of the filmgoing public, Sony Pictures has decided that the package they’ve put together for Doc Savage is worth taking a risk on. The reason they’re so confident is because the guy they’ve got co-writing and directing the new take on this classic hero is Shane Black, and Shane Black just made Marvel over $700 million in a week by directing Iron Man 3.



Who’s excited to finally see a brand new Doc Savage movie up on the big screen? Anyone? No one? Oh wait, Harry Knowles is!
