John Ary With A Trailer For The DIABOLIK TV Series!!

John Ary here with a bit of news that both excites and worries me at the same time.  

If you have never watched Mario Bava's brilliant Danger Diabolik, stop what you are doing right now, go to your local library, video store or preferred online retailer and procure a copy of it as soon as possible. A pair of Italian sisters created the anti-hero back in early 60's.  This super-thief steals from the rich while utilizing a laundry lists of talents and gadgets comparable to Batman.  Bava filled his film with bright colors, large set pieces, James Bond-like action and just enough superhero camp to make Diabolik a fun adventure flick that feels way ahead of its time.

 
Now an Italian network plans to reinvigorate the franchise with a new Diabolik TV series.  According to this trailer, it seems the color and Batman-insh aspects of the original film have been dropped in favor of a sleek style devoid of any humor.
 
Here's the trailer:
 
 
I have no idea when we'll get to see this in the states, but I hope it's soon.  Thanks to Steve Forde for the tip.
