So what would be a good story for a rebooted DD, should they do a gang war story or does that need set up? Should they go other villains, but many DD villains can be the Big Bad of a movie on their own?

If you do a DD film wrong, he could end up looking like a watered down version of the darker Batman flicks. I think a DD movie based of Waid's run would be something we're not seeing in current comic films.
How would you do a Mark Waid DD film? I think Mark Waid's run is working well, because it contrasts with the darker stuff previous writers have done, I don't think it would work as well without that contrast, which doesn't work in film. Really having DD fight Klaw in the recent comics works, because Klaw is an established Marvel villain, but that doesn't work on film, because he is not a DD villain and would have to be established else where to work. DD vs. Klaw story lines are not a good basis for a movie. Which Waid story lines in particular would work as a movie, because most them seem connected with years of Marvel continuity that wouldn't be present in the movies.
