I find it a bit surprising that the producers of what one would anticipate to be an action film heavy on special effects would converge upon guys who, particularly in the case of Minahan, have worked almost exclusively in straightforward TV. Not that there's anything wrong with that. With that strategic direction, however, (sorry about the pun) I doubt a mega-budget will be attached to the project. That in turn really raises the ante on the screenplay - the story will have to carry most, if not all, of the weight. Once again, not that there's anything wrong with that (see: Spider Man II). But when it comes to comic-book movies that are reliant upon story...well, it's fair to state that Marvel has a spotty record (see: Electra, the FF films, Iron Man II, Daredevil, etc.)
