A Quick Daredevil Update

“Daredevil” is, hands down, my favorite comic book superhero. I’ve been a fan of “the man without fear” since I was a small child. That said, I had to be physically restrained from leaving the theater when I saw Mark Steven Johnson’s 2003 adaptation of “Daredevil” starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner. It was Valentine’s Day, I was on a date, and I still tried to leave five minutes in.

There have been rumors bandied about David Slade’s planned adaptation of the venerable comic franchise, but precious little actual news. The other day, however, Slade dropped a Tweet indicating that a draft of the script, by Brad Caleb Kane (“Fringe”), is indeed finished, and hints at more news to come after New Year’s.

Here’s what the Tweet says:

DD still on track [Brad Caleb Kane] did an amazing job on script with high pressure deadline. We will be doing more work on it. News in N-year.

While there’s little to hang your hat on in this brief message, it’s nice to know that things are progressing. As much as I would love for there to be a good “Daredevil” movie, until there is more to go on, I will remain highly skeptical. While I enjoy some of Slade’s movies—namely “30 Days of Night” and “Hard Candy”, and he did work on “Breaking Bad”—he also directed one of the “Twilight” movies, so we’ll see. There are so many interesting characters and storylines to choose from that there is no reason not to tell an incredible story.

Who would you like to see play Daredevil/Matt Murdock? Any villain preferences, or storylines you’d like to see them explore this time around?
