DVD Art Shows New Phantom Imagery
The Phantom is either already available in Europe on DVD, or it soon will be.
We've gotten our hands on the DVD cover which shows a piece of promotional artwork we haven't seen before. Not to sound all "angry comic fan" though, but isn't the Phantom most recognizable with a mask? Then again, if the mask doesn't resemble the Phantom we all know, it might be difficult...
No word yet on when that'll hit the U.S., but it is to be assumed that it'll be after the June airing of the show.
Expect it to air on June 20 starting at 7PM. Here's the trailer again:

The Phantom Premieres In Canada
The Canadian premiere of The Phantom has been thought to be on the Movie Network's MFun Channel on Tuesday, December 22... but here's news... apparently the mini-series has already aired in some parts of Canada, on the "Movie Central HD" channel. Part 1 aired on December 20, Part 2 aired on December 21.
If you were lucky enough to see it already, talk about it on our forum... and if you are in Canada, remember you can see it on the MFun channel of the Movie Network with Part 1 on Tuesday, December 22!
Unless an illegal torrent shows up online for viewing, those of us in the United States will sadly have to wait until sometime in 2010 to see the premiere of the mini-series. But for those of you in Canada... enjoy!!

Ryan Carnes On The Phantom
As the premiere of The Phantom comes closer in Canada (sadly, no word yet on when Syfy is airing it here), Phantomsite.net is happy to share with you a quote from Phantom portrayer Ryan Carnes about playing such an iconic role.
"What's really great about The Phantom is that he doesn't have bells and whistles," Ryan Carnes explains in the movie's press materials. "He can't shoot webs out of his arm. He doesn't crawl on buildings or hang upside down anywhere. He doesn't turn green and giant. He has a suit that gives him a little bit of extra added strength, speed, incredible insight and instinct but other than that he's just an ordinary guy. He's just got himself and his suit. And I appreciate that. Bare bones."
The Phantom mini-series premieres in Canada on The Movie Network December 22.
PhantomSite.net has obtained breakdowns detailing every character from the upcoming Phantom miniseries. The miniseries airs December 22, 2009 on the Movie Network in Canada and in 2010 on the Syfy Channel in the United States.
Young urban daredevil Kit Walker finds himself recruited by a secret organization, unveiling a heritage he never could have dreamed possible. Revered as the twenty-first "ghost who walks," he must now uphold and honor his ancestors' creed-to fight crime and injustice throughout the world. But it's a new world out there, and going up against high-tech savvy criminals will take training and discipline unlike anything bestowed on the Phantom.
