Matt Murdock has finally come home.
We’ve already heard what Joe Carnahan wanted to do with Daredevil, but now original reboot director David Slade has revealed what he had in store for the Man Without Fear.
Daredevil fans, things are about to get interesting. Fox has had the film rights to Hell's Kitchen's greatest hero locked up for the past decade, but as of today, they're finally headed home.
These days, life is pretty good for Ben Affleck. He's an acclaimed director with another promising drama, Argo, on its way to theaters. But just a few years ago, he was in the middle of a series of career disappointments, one of which was the less-than-impressive comic book flick Daredevil.
Michael Clarke Duncan, the Oscar-nominated actor known for his massive frame and roles in The Green Mile, Daredevil and many others, died this week at the age of 54.
Guy Pearce is everywhere these days. This year, he starred in two sci-fi films (Prometheus and Lockout), and in 2013 he'll appear in Marvel's Iron Man 3. There, he'll play second fiddle to Robert Downey Jr., but 10 years ago, he could have headlined his own superhero movie—Daredevil.
In recent weeks, we've been teased with the potential for a gritty, exploitation-esque take on Daredevil, courtesy of Joe Carnahan (The Grey, Narc). Sadly, the movie's a bust, but Carnahan was nice enough to show fans what could've been, thanks to the sizzle reels worked up for the studio. Want to see what he had in mind?
The chances of seeing a Daredevil reboot from Twentieth Century Fox seem to keep getting slimmer. First, director David Slade backed off the project to work on TV, and now another big-name director is lamenting that his plans for The Man Without Fear might be dead.
Back before Marvel decided to get into the movie-making game themselves, they farmed out different characters to different studios, which is why you probably won't see Spider-Man or the X-Men pop up in the Avengers universe anytime soon. But thanks to a new deal tied to Fox and Daredevil, one of the biggest Marvel Universe baddies could be heading home.
That new Hannibal TV series may be a serial killer drama, but it sure is making some waves in the comic book world. Since NBC has opted to pick up the series, it has nabbed both an actor and director from two high-profile superhero flicks currently in the works.
