DAREDEVIL Reboot In The WorksFebruary 6, 2010
Right on time considering Hollwoods reboot, remake, sequel mentality and the current trend in favor of comic book properties. Also – seven years since the disaster that was DAREDEVIL starring Ben Affleck as sightless attorney Matt Murdock turned super sensory enhanced costumed crime fighter who patrolled NYC’s “Hells Kitchen”.
Regency is mounting the remake with former News Corp No. 2 Peter Chernin producing. Writing the redo is screenwriter David Scarpa.
“Use it or lose it” in effect:
Hollywood studios with Marvel superheroes need to keep reinventing these Marvel movie franchises or the rights revert back to Disney-based Marvel.
The studio rights for the Marvel characters are currently spread around in such a way that The Avengers will never team up with The X-Men, Fantastic 4, The X-Men, Spider-Man, or Daredevil.
THRALL WORLD wishful thinking would have as our MOST sought after Marvel Team-Up a meeting between Daredevil and Spider-Man with Spider-Man hanging out with the Fantastic 4 a distant second. Some newer school comic fanboys would probably favor a Spider-Man and Wolverine encounter.
I guess we’ll all just have to sit around and What If amongst ourselves..
