During a “Reddit Ask Me Anything” with his Renfield co-star Nicholas Hoult, Nicolas Cage was asked if there were any undead characters left that he would like to tackle now that has played both Ghost Rider and Dracula on the big screen. “Yeah! Jim Corrigan, the Spectre. An old DC comic character). It would be fun,” he said. “But it’s hard to pull off because he’s pretty much invincible, he has no weaknesses. You need characters that have a kryptonite, that have a flaw, but are unbeatable. But it would be fun.” Will James Gunn listen to him?
Who is The Specter and why is it so interesting?
Created by writer Jerry Siegel and cartoonist Bernard Baily, Jim Corrigan was the Specter of the Golden Age and first appeared in More Fun Comics #52 in 1940. Corrigan was a tough police detective who was killed by a boss. of the crime. After Corrigan’s soul refused to go to Heaven, the archangel Michael bound him to God’s spirit of vengeance, the Specter, and sent him back to Earth to punish his misdeeds. As stated by Nicolas Cage in his answer, the Specter is nearly invincible, with powers ranging from reality warping and cosmic awareness to immortality and superhuman strength. I hope James Gunn gives him a chance in the new DC Universe.
