Re: David Slade Will Direct Daredevil for Fox

After "Gone Baby Gone" and "The Town" ... I'd be kind of intrigued to see what Affleck would do with the property.

Re: David Slade Will Direct Daredevil for Fox

I liked the first one well enough, but it didn't really leave me wanting more of that take on the character. I'm happy to hear about this reboot. I wish that Michael Clarke Duncan could get another shot at Kingpin but I doubt that's going to happen.

I think you mean the director's cut is much better.

In the theatrical version, we never find out how the cops suddenly know Fisk is the Kingpin.
Yeah, in the theatrical cut, it seems like Fisk gets arrested for the crime of getting beat up by Daredevil.

Hmm... I liked Hard Candy, but Eclipse was the worst movie of last year. It made Twilight and New Moon look like Oscar winners.
Worse than The Last Airbender?

An entire plot line that clears things up a lot is what is missing, down side from a run time perspective is it's about 20+min of footage.
It's actually an extra 33 minutes of footage, resulting in a cut that's 30 minutes longer (due to 3 minutes of conflicting scenes that were cut out). And that's a good thing if only because it's a director's cut that actually gives you your money's worth. So many "director's cuts" just drop in an extra couple minutes of nothing clips and call it a day. The Director's Cut of Daredevil doesn't just add scenes. It totally restructures the movie, switching the order of many scenes, changing the context & meaning of several lines. I suspect very few other director's cuts have been so bold in their changes. Perhaps The Abyss, Blade Runner, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Dark City, & The Lord of the Rings. (Then there's the cynical, shortened TV version of Brazil included on the Criterion Collection DVD.)

I'm in the minority that liked the first one
Yeah! Represent!

Overall, I think the 1st one gets a bad rap, and I think that's mostly because it was very fashionable to bash Affleck back in 2003. (It hasn't gone totally out of style but it's not a national obsession now like it was 8 years ago.) Frankly, I've liked him in everything I've seen him in. Armageddon, Paycheck, & Pearl Harbor all had decent performances from him, even if the movies left something to be desired. Reindeer Games was a helluva lot of fun! And he's delightfully self-deprecating, depicting himself as an insatiable prostitute murderer in Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back.

But my favorite performance of his is as Daredevil. I think he does such a good job of capturing the physical & psychological toll of being a superhero. And then, when he meets another wounded soul like Elektra, it's like an answer to a prayer. Plus, Jon Favreau provides great comic relief. While I'm not totally satisfied with the resolution to the Kingpin storyline in either version, I think the movie captures enough of the right feeling that it's worth it, even in the Theatrical Cut. (Plus, I still miss the 1st confessional scene.)

Re: David Slade Will Direct Daredevil for Fox

I'm wondering now if Slade will get "The Wolverine" like he wanted after Aronosfky has dropped out now. Slade was reported to have had meetings with Jackman and be high in the running until they signed Darren.

The novelization was based on the original script. I admit I was shocked when I first saw the movie in the theaters at how much of the plot had been cut out. Thank god they let me keep those scenes in the novelization or the book would have been a whole lot shorter!

It's not, really. He's got a pretty well-developed set of adversaries, certainly enough for a few films.

The original film wasn't bad (and the Director's Cut is much better), but I'm open to them giving the property another shot.

Re: David Slade Will Direct Daredevil for Fox

Given the increased popularity of "Parkour", I think it'd be really cool if they eschewed the wonky CGI for Daredevil's acrobatics and just hired a really frickin' awesome stuntman. Base the storyline on the Bendis/Maleev run to give it a sorta "'Goodfellas' with superheroes" feel.. I think you got a recipe for a pretty sweet Daredevil flick.

Re: David Slade Will Direct Daredevil for Fox

Scroll through the many news stories and rumours here and you'll see a claim that Bradley Cooper and Garret Hedlund might be in the frame to play DD. Of course, as the story acknowledges, you can expect about 30 other names to be bandied about (one I've heard is Slade's Eclipse star Robert Pattinson, uh!).
