Director David Slade (30 Days of Night, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) has signed on to direct a new Daredevil movie that will continue the story of the blind superhero established in 2003’s Daredevil, but feature a brand new cast (i.e., no Ben Affleck or Jennifer Garner). Former Fox chairman Peter Chernin will produce through his company Chernin Entertainment. No screenwriter has been announced.

    Why continue? While Spider-man should be left alone, Daredevil needs to, not only be rebooted, but switched to MAC!

    • clark

      DD is a mildly interesting character at best, does not need the movie treatment

      • Linda

        Somebody in the movie biz disagrees. Why oh why didn’t they consult clark first?

    • bradley

      ur all idiots hugh jackman wud be sick to play dd



  • Russ

    Statham would suck as Daredevil.

    My one suggestion, keep Farrel as Bullseye because he stole every scene of that movie.

    • edwin

      yeah, statham would suck as Daredevil
      Sam Worthington would be the worthy choice of playing daredevil

      I wish Marvel Studios had the film rights back. As long as these characters are being filmed outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, they will exist alone in their own worlds, the only superhero, with no potential for team-ups or any kind of crossover. The Avengers proved that people LOVE crossovers!

    I totally read the blip as “David SPADE to direct ‘Daredevil’ quasi-sequel.” I was like, wow, someone needs a tax write off…

    • O-My

      I’d LOVE to see David Spade direct and STAR in a Daredevil film. That would be AWESOME!!!

  • John

    I love this. The nerdy fanboys who adore crappy comic book fantasies like DD are the same ones who hate all “gay” stuff like Twilight. I bet their heads will explode when they try to decide to see a film about one of their fanboy nerd obsessions, yet directed by a guy who directed something they hate so much like Twilight….LMAO

    • thin

      Sounds like you’re a big giant Twilight fan. Well, I have a news flash for you, Einstein, the decision won’t be head-exploding or even close to difficult. If Daredevil gets a Twilight treatment, the nerdy fanboys who picked on you won’t go see it. But you can go fall in love with it all you want.

      • John

        LOL Twilight is indifferent to me. What is not indifferent is how ludicrously passionate you nerds are, and you have proved my point. Thanks.

    • jk

      Robert Patinson as DD! That would be a riot!

    • You

      your such a jerk @John.
      pull your head out of your narrcastistic own little world & get a life.
      let people like DD if they won’t,last time i checked,you don’t own the world.

  • redvector

    Statham has the physical skills for DD but can’t do an american accent to save his life.

  • Andrew Davies

    It’s strange that they aren’t going for a stright-up reboot, particularly since they are not using the same cast; though it may very well turn out that this is a reboot.

  • Heath

    Fox will never let the rights lapse back to Marvel on any of their properties. Good luck figuring out the story for this reboot. Shoulda just killed two franchises with one stone and made Daredevil vs. Punisher.

    Dear Hollywood,
    please stop. please.

  • Jose

    Will it be an animated direct to DVD movie? I’d be ok with that?

  • Hank

    Who is this Jack off and why is it a lead story. He’s directed two mediocre movies.

    • You

      he didn’t direct TWO mediocre movies.
      sadley twilight is way to succesful.

  • paul

    Get Bendis to write the script so maybe he’ll have less time to put out 20 issues of sh!t priced at $3.99 every month.

    Everyone hates Exxon Mobil for gas prices but $4.00 a gallon is only 16 times as much as it cost in 1960 – comics cost 40 times as much and they aren’t worth HALF that.

    Disney/Marvel greedheads make Bernie Madoff look like a philanthropist!!!

  • allie

    i thought it said david spade lol

  • Judo Thong

    Somebody please take away all Marvel properties out of FOX’s hands!!!

  • McProphet

    As long as they make the movie more in line with the Director’s Cut of the original movie, I’m intrigued. That version completely surpassed the theatrical release in almost every way.
