Will Marvel be rebooting DD soon?

Will DD show up in the Avengers (or in any solo film)?

I hope he gets a well-done reboot. I am not too well-versed in his history however, was he ever in the Avengers?

there should be a crapload of ninja in the reboot. i want to them fighting across the rooftops of Hell's Kitchen.

I would really prefer they save the ninjas for the sequel. Let the first movie be "Daredevil vs Crime," with the Kingpin as the big bad. That said, you should totally include the Chaste and Stick, as part of his origin story. Focus less on the accident that blinded him, and more on his kung fu enlightenment training.

I wish this version of Daredevil would have been realized. Maybe it still will?

I'd like to see Law/procedural drama with Matt Murdock as DareDevil.

Considering the moderate success of Arrow (which is a damn good show), I think it would work really well. I think Matt's profession makes him an ideal TV show character, and it's very realistic. You can keep the powered villains out of it for the most part.

Think Marvel should do a Marvel Knights movie once Ghost Rider is back in house. I don't think the characters should be getting solo movies any more. I wouldn't do a DD movie until after some kind of introduction or cross-over, depending on the caliber actor in the role and the popularity of this re-intro or cross over.

Kingpin could play a big lead villain role for several heroes. Marvel could make an entire arc that sees several heroes dealing with Kingpin's henchmen leading into a film where the heroes work together to take down the crime lord. This arc could run parallel with the Avengers with little to no crossover. Maybe SHIELD agents would be involved in some minor capacity to help tie this arc into the MCU universe with the Avengers.

I don't read the comics but I know that not every cool character is an Avenger or would even work well within the Avengers group. Building up some street level heroes into another loose group could generate interest for a film similar to that of Avengers. Daredevil, Punisher, Cage, Iron Fist could work really well together to take down someone like Kingpin.

I think Kingpin is still owned by Sony. They permitted Fox to use the character for the DD movie in 2003, but at this point he is still at Sony under their Spider-Man rights.

Boooooooo!

Is there another character like Kingpin who could fill the same role? The role I envision is someone pulling the strings like an organized crime boss would. His goons run across several heroes in origin stories. The heroes figure out these goons are not the boss and they vow to go after the leader. Maybe the leader could be tied to AIM or be a head of HYDRA sowing chaos. The the heroes end up together to take on several goons and the leader in the team-up film. I think this is a similar formula to how a Masters of Evil film would develop with minor differences.

i guess i'm in deep in the minority, but i didn't have a problem with the original DD film. i'd be interested to see why exactly some people hate it.
i assume that some just don't like Ben Affflick. (maybe that will change after comeback films like Argo and the Town) prior to those films Afflick was in some really bomb films. But i thought he portrayed a blind man brilliantly. and i loved how the DD film displayed " radar" hyper sense power of Daredevil.
i also liked Colin Farrell as a psyotic BullsEye villain. i thought i read someone make mentioned that they were turned off by the leather DD suit. and surely no one had issues with Michael Duncan as Kingpin or Jennifer Gardner as Elektra

Re: Daredevil reboot in the near future?
 
if daredevil is going to be re-booted,.. then surely the fantastic four has to be -rebooted. those 2 FF's were horrible and comedy-corny as they can come. And Ghost Rider series isn't far from it at all.

metaphysician 03-23-2013 09:24 AM

Re: Daredevil reboot in the near future?
 
Sadly, the Fantastic Four rights haven't reverted yet, and they won't revert anytime soon unless/until Fox cancels production on their own reboot.

Ghost Rider, I haven't heard anything. Maybe Sony will let it revert, maybe not; the sequel did poorly, but it still made money.

I am still thinking that some agreement with Disney/Marvel (co-funding?) is going to to be reached before production on the FF reboot goes into full swing. I simply don't see how a recent reboot of a critically panned Marvel super-hero team-up duology helmed by a relatively green director and released just 56 days before Avengers 2 with no merchandising support from Disney can be expected to be anything other than a commercial flop.

If Disney/Marvel wanted to use GR for their Dr. Strange film, I can see Sony letting it happen for nominal fee. Per Kevin Feige, Disney/Marvel and Sony have a great relationship at the present time, and I can't see Sony jeapordizing that over a not particularly valuable IP.

On Daredevil - I definitely think TV is the way to go. The character is a hard sell as a film star since he shares a lot of the same characteristics as Batman, only without the long history of TV and film stardom, the great wealth, the fantastic weaponry and the A list rogues gallery. I'd love to see the SHIELD show used as a backdoor pilot to introduce Heroes for Hire and DD.

I can totally see Daredevil as a procedural TV show...like Arrow (but PLEASE NOT ON THE CW). He is a lawyer by day and is a vigilante by night.

Well you dont have to worry about CW. It would likely be on ABC (owned by Disney) like SHIELD. We'll have to wait and see how ABC does with superheroes.

I've personally expressed interest in a "Heroes for Hire" series with Daredevil/Murdock as a regular character.

I love this idea . He can be the team's personal attorney who finds himself both at odds with and fighting alongside the team while as his alter ego. His "secret identity" can be a running gag with HFH.

Could DD's rather over the top fighting style work on a TV budget? It seems like any sort fight between DD and say the Hand might look pretty bad on a TV budget.

Also if they reboot the DD movie series, they would have to make this new DD movie different from the last one, so I would say not using Bullseye or Elektra in the first film would be a good idea. Kingpin you can build up over the course of several films.

I could have sworn that Fox still owns the rights to Elektra.

I think Elektra is a character who falls under the umbrella of Daredevil rights.

Picard Sisko 04-02-2013 11:13 PM

Re: Daredevil reboot in the near future?
 
IDK why, but I remember hearing that the rights to Daredevil expired, but Elektra is still owned by Fox (along with many other characters). Could have been a bad rumor or something.

Interesting. I haven't heard that anywhere.

I believe the common perception is that the very fact that Fox made an Elektra movie in 2005 is the only reason Fox still had the Daredevil rights for so long (until last fall) in the first place.

Picard Sisko 04-02-2013 11:27 PM

Re: Daredevil reboot in the near future?
 
If it weren't for that Elektra movie, there probably would have been a Daredevil sequel. I just hope Marvel makes a movie for him sometime during phase three.
