Steel Creator Defends Shaquille O'Neal's Performance in 1997 Film
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.03.2014



It's pretty much universally agreed that the 1997 adaptation of DC's Steel is an abysmal film. The movie, which starred Shaquille O'Neal as the titular hero, is considered a joke at the level of Batman & Robin and other such disasters. The character's creator doesn't think it's Shaq's fault though.

Louise Simonson, who created Steel and is known for other titles such as Superman: The Man of Steel, X-Factor, Power Pack and New Mutants, was speaking with CBR when they asked her about the infamous film. Simonson had a lot of problems with it but Shaq wasn't one of them.

"Honestly, Shaq took a lot of flak, but I think he did a fine job," said Simonson. "My problems were with the script and the costume. The costume was terrible on that one. Oh god, it was awful! [Laughs] Today they could do a better job. I could do a better job with the character myself."
