Along with the news that Ghost Rider will get a sequel, Empire Online reports a confirmed Daredevil reboot.
Marvel are “quietly developing a new version of Daredevil“. No other details of writers or producers or potential directors or stars (although we know it won’t be Ben Affleck, who’s been vocal about how he felt stung by the reaction to the original).
Now, I’m a big fan of the Daredevil character and am happy for a reboot since a sequel is out of the question. Though, I’ve said on the record in many blogs and articles that I don’t mind the Affleck treatment and especially love the director’s cut. It has an entirely different feel than the theatrical cut and recommend it for people who weren’t a fan of the original.
There are so many Hornhead stories to tell from Kevin Smith to the more recent Ed Brubaker stuff, I’d personally love to see something in between those and not just a rehash of Frank Miller’s arc. There’s been rumors of Jason Statham as Matt Murdock, but I’d love to see Guy Pearce wear the horns and billy club.
So, with this news I ask you, readers: who or what would you like to see in this new Daredevil feature?
