The devil you say? Daredevil headed back to the big screen

I enjoyed Mark Stephen Johnson's 2003 Daredevil movie a whole lot more than most people. And his unrated director's cut is even better. So I'm not disappointed to hear that 20th. Century Fox is moving ahead with a second film.

But gone are Ben Affleck and the rest of the cast, as well as Johnson himself. In is director David Slade, best know for his hard-R rated horror outings Hard Candy and 30 Days of Night.

Of yeah, he made one of the Twilight films too, but I won't begrudge the man a decent paycheck.

Fox isn't calling the film a reboot, but it sure sounds like one. I wouldn't mind having Affleck back, as State of Play and The Town revealed a performer who has matured with age. And I dug his Matt Murdock/Daredevil.

No word yet on what the story will be or when the film is due in theatres. We'll keep you posted, as always.

  1. I enjoyed the movie too- more so on DVD than in the theatre... but only because I didn't have to listen to teenage girls giggling every time B-Aff's leather clad butt was shown.

    Of course, I wouldn't say it was in the same league as "Dark Knight", but it was still enjoyable.

  2. Good no. Dark Knight? Epic. Daredevil? Good B-level super hero movie.
