DAREDEVIL on Netflix

Did anyone even know this was in the works?

Click Here to read Frightening Story

Garner says: "Ben says it's in the early stages, but he is hopeful. It would be fun to work together, not to mention convenient."


So, let me get this straight. It was a shitty movie that tanked at the box office and was pretty much hated by the comic book community, so they're going to make a sequel because it'd be nice for the married co-stars to work together... again.

Shenanigans! Shenanigans!

It did creep its way over $100 million, but I think it cost something like $80 million to make and more to market. I think it was a modest success, but a critical failure for sure.

Hell, even Punisher is doing well on DVD. Which I just saw. Egads, was it bad.

The only reason they'll make this sequel is to make more money, and 100 mil isn't exactly a lot for a studio to do it, is it?

I heard the directors cut wasn't bad.

I just had a REALLY hard time getting used to the idea of Ben Affleck as Daredevil. It didn't work for me at all

As for the DVD's selling well, see my previous thread about making movies for DVD release only...

But to contradict myself (from that other thread) Austin Powers is a classic example of a movie that did horribly in theatres, phenomenally on DVD and subsequent sequels did huge numbers at the box office.

I'm sure when you factor in the foreign box office Daredevil did quite well. There's always a chance that Affleck will twist Smith's arm into scripting it. As long as they can keep Mark Steven Johnson away from it I'll be happy.

As much as I liked Daredevil, I must agree that Affleck was badly cast. I personally have no problem with him other than that annoying tendency he has to breath out of his mouth. Really I am just pissed that Matt Damon didn't go fot it. CHRIST he would have been awesome.

Dude, I would have LOVED to see Matt Damon as Matt Murdock... serious as can be. I think he was born to play that role.

And I think Matt Damon is a great actor too who has proved he can do smart action REALLY well.

Yeah I was expecting Gerry to be Dull, it certainly has a leisurely pace, but the photography is Beautiful and the Tale is darker than it appears. The Ending is also open to interpretation. Good for a Sunday Afternoon, especially if you like to toke.

Daredevil made money when you combine the totals of overseas and domestic plus DVD and Video sales and rentals. Even Elektra sold a lot of DVD copies inspite of failing badly in the cinema.

Domestic: $102,543,518 57.2%
+ Overseas: $76,636,200 42.8%
$179,179,718

Production Budget: $78 million
Est. Marketing Costs: $45 million

(Thank you boxofficemojo)

She might be keen to do it, I'm not anywhere near so keen to see it though. I *might* think about it if Bullseye as played by Colin Farrell is back.

If they do a sequel, I would really just like them to jettison Elektra from the story altogether. Why would anyone want to be reminded of that debacle of a film. Just thinking about it makes my ass pucker.

Postby Pissed-Off Crawdad on Thu Aug 04, 2005 3:11 pm

Daredevil had some very well realized scenes in it, and I personally loved Bullseye. But it also had plenty of other scenes that were downright embarrasing, and none of it seemed to click together; it seemed more like a collection of different ideas just kind of thrown at the screen in an attempt to make a good, coherent superhero movie. Then again, I've only seen the theatrical cut; maybe the Director's Cut fixed some of these problems.

Still, I can't see it getting a sequel. It may have made money, but overall, people didn't care for it. I doubt the sequel would be as successful. Especially after Elektra.

Hire Matt Damon. Make Kingpin less ghetto (and I don't mean necessarily white). Leave ALL WIRE WORK to Kung Fu movies. Make Matt's legal work more interesting and more smartly written.

You know one thing I never figured out about the first film: During Matt's first court appearance he is obviously representing som young lady who was raped by thatbald dude who appears in everything. But Matt wasn't a prosecuter? What was that trial? It wasn't a civil trial because that dude was found "innocent" wasn't he? Was Matt filling in for the DA? It was very confusing.

Oh and I think they should have a scene take place at the docks.

More X-Men Spin-Offs, New Daredevil Film?

September 10, 2008

In an article at Variety talking about Fox's not-so-hot summer, the trade touches on some possible projects the studio is in talks about:

Though Fox has no plans for a major overhaul, the studio has scheduled a strategy meeting to assess the status of its superheroes, a group sorely missed this summer. On the agenda, Fox will mull the possibility of more "X-Men" spinoffs, including a young-X-Men project as well as "Deadpool," based on a character played by Ryan Reynolds in "Wolverine." The studio is even considering reviving the "Daredevil" property.

Rothman must go in order for FOX to survive.

While at Comic-Con last month, acclaimed director Alex Proyas blew the lid off rumors that he was going to be directing a “Silver Surfer” spin-off, claiming the news of his involvement was nothing more than idle internet chatter.

There may be more to it than that, he told MTV News. Although he wouldn’t go so far as to say there was ever an official offer, why would he never even consider a “Silver Surfer” movie?

“Because it’s a Fox picture,” the “Dark City” helmer said. “And I’m determined never to work with them ever again because of my experience on ‘I,Robot.’”

If you ask me, whoever's been making those idiotic decisions at FOX needs to be canned. I just don't know why they can't just make "Eldest" by fixing a lot of the mistakes they made on "Eragon". Sorry, but fantasy films aren't under 2 hours. WB knows it, and their management is crummier.

Pure... evil. When she crossed over, she was just a ship. But when she came back... she was alive! Look at her, Miller. Isn't she beautiful?

Rothman Talks DAREDEVIL Reboot!!

Postby TheButcher on Fri Oct 03, 2008 5:58 pm

From AICN: Rothman Talks DAREDEVIL Reboot!!
Merrick wrote:In an interview with IESB, Fox;'s Tom Rothman discusses the possibility of a DAREDEVIL reboot (a la THE INCREDIBLE HULK).

Tom Rothman: A Daredevil, to use your words, reboot, is something we are thinking very seriously about.

IESB: Soon?

ESB: I have to ask.

TR: You've lost a lot a weight now Robert and you are going to live for a long time, this is the movie business, nothing is soon.

...says THIS REPORT at IESB, which also discusses Rothman's belief that a DAREDEVIL reworking would work best when guided by a director with a genuine vision (a la Christopher Nolan).

Rothman's statements are confounding given Fox's legendary disregard for artistic vision, and frequent interference with/contempt for film maker (Alex Proyas being one example, Mathieu Kassovitz being another).

Ugly and awkward, Mark Steven Johnson's 2003 DAREDEVIL film actually looked like it was made by a blind man...a dubious accomplishment to be sure. Maybe they'll get luckier this time.

Ands, you know I have to say it, I say "Shia" for Matt Murdock!
