Fox want Daredevil reboot
There are loads of superhero characters being rebooted these days. Batman and Superman to name a couple. Now Fox say they are considering rebooting a character, and it's Daredevil.
The last imagining had Ben Affleck as Daredevil. Is the time right to start again?
Daredevil was last made into a film in 2003. Ben Affleck was the man himself, and it also starred Jennifer Garner, Colin Farrell and Jon Favreau. It had a fairly mixed reception back then. But now 20th Century Fox co-chairman Tom Rothman, says that a Daredevil reboot is a possibility. He was talking to IESB, through First Showing.net.
A Daredevil, to use your words, reboot, is something we are thinking very seriously about.
Rothman thinks that time is a great healer, and that given the right amount of downtime a character can be successfully rebooted. He sights The Dark Knight as the ultimate example:
...when they did Batman Begins, the first Nolan movie, that you can have made some mistakes along the way or movies that the audience wasn't that crazy about and then given the proper amount of time and the right creative vision behind it, you can, to use your word, reboot. It needs someone, it needs a director, honestly, who has a genuine vision. What we wouldn't do is just do it for the sake of doing it.
Some comforting words there, that they aren't going to go ahead with it regardless. Would you be interested in a new Daredevil film? Does it need it?
