MTV Scoffs At Scarjo's Spirit Demotion From Surgeon To Secretary

It's a bad sign for Frank Miller's movie adaptation of Will Eisner's The Spirit when MTV's own movie-promo special Spoilers feels the need to explain how much cooler the comic was. In this clip, MTV highlights two of the "Ladies Of The Spirit," then notes how Silken Floss (Scarlett Johansson) is a nuclear physicist and surgeon in the original comic — but in the movie, she's just Samuel L. Jackson's secretary. "A bit of a demotion," the MTV talking head notes. Weirdly enough, the online version of this featurette is missing that observation. But it does have more ladies. Watch it below. The Spirit hits theaters on December 25.
