Looks like the love for Doc Savage isn’t just with DC and its new First Wave series — the pulp hero is also making his return to the big screen.
Columbia is bringing back the Man of Bronze, who was an influence on pretty much the entire comics way of life, particularly the Man of Steel Superman. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang director Shane Black is set to direct, writing the script with freshmen Anthony Bagarozzi and Chuck Mondry.
“Doc Savage is an icon, a character with limitless possibilities,” Columbia co-president Matt Tolmach told Variety. “We have had a great experience working with Neal to bring another classic character of the era, the Green Hornet, to a new generation of fans, and we think he and Shane make the ideal team to bring Doc Savage back to the bigscreen.”
