First Trailer for ‘The Phantom’ TV Series Goes Online

Picture 2Before all you Billy Zane fans out there start drooling, know that this isn’t your mom and pop’s Phantom. This Phantom has cool guns, and sunglasses, and a hoodie! The premise follows Chris Moore (Ryan Carnes), who learns that he’s a part of a long line of jungle crime fighters who have sworn to protect the world from evil.

The show has a bit of a Smallville feel to it, with a few light nods to the original costume, but establishing itself as a newer, “hipper” entity.  There are a few modern elements thrown in, such as secret agencies and terrorist factions. Also, you can expect to see lots of purple in the show, which is great if you are hoping the color will make a comeback in the fashion world.

Star Carnes is no stranger to the world of Sci-Fi TV, as he starred in two episodes of the BBC’s Doctor Who. Alongside Carnes is Alias’ Isabella Rossellini (who is totally not crazy) and Sons of Anarchy’s Cameron Goodman.

Check out the first trailer for the new SyFy series after the jump, and stay tuned as we get closer to 2010 for more on the air date.

    I thought the Idea of him being called the ghost that walks was because each person who became the phantom wore the same costume so people thought it was the same guy hence ” The Ghost that walks”! so how the hell does that work when they have changed the costume completely. I mean even the cartoon Phantom 2040 was set in the future and he still had the same costume.

      I agree, the Phantom DOES NOT NEED fixing. He is possibly the longest running ‘Hero’ of all time.

    How tedious. Yet another Hollywood “genius approach” which is going to fix everything that’s wrong with our poor, tired, old Phantom. Poor, boring Phantom. He’s only the first superhero ever created. He’s only sold millions upon millions of comic books. He’s only been around for going on what?–eighty years? How lame.

    Aren’t we lucky that we’ve got such very special, very creative Hollywood talents to come along fix Mr. Walker? How fortunate we are that these gifted, marvelous people would lower themselves to touching “The Ghost Who Walks.”

    Just once I would like to see a gem–a glory–such as “The Phantom” placed in the hands of mature, knowledgeable, ego-centered creatives. People with the intelligence and wisdom to recognize a prize when it’s handed to them. People who can embrace–rather than shred–the conceptual miracle they’ve been given. People smart enough to appreciate that “The Phantom,” “Kit Walker,” and “The Ghost Who Walks” don’t require repair. “The Phantom” doesn’t require a “face-lift.” “The Phantom” doesn’t require a “fresh take.”

    “The Phantom” simply requires respect.
