I'd be looking forward to this new Phantom if it looked good to me... but it just doesn't.
I've always like the idea of the Ghost Who walks, but I have to say, I enjoyed it more when there's a quasi-mystical component to him as well. Never immortal, but maybe with artifacts of power handed down through the generations or some sort of technique that gives him a slight edge like The Shadow
I hope if they do a new Phantom, they'll by pass the whole "Learning to Become The Phantom" storyline and just have him enter being the phantom, or having trained his whole life already and due to tragic circumstances it's now time to take up the mantle.
I don't care about learning to trust the character by watching him prove himself, I want to see him fully formed and showing me what he can do right off the bat.
