Daredevil Sequel (Unfortunately) Under Consideration

by at . Comments

There is a downside to brilliant remakes such as The Dark Knight.

They give studio chairmans the idea that any crappy comic book movie can be rebooted into something, you know, good. Case in point:

According to IESB, 20th Century Fox co-chairman Tom Rothman says a Daredevil reboot is likely on the way. For real.

“A Daredevil, to use your words, reboot, is something we are thinking very seriously about. The thing The Incredible Hulk showed although, it did what it did, is that it is possible, that if you really do it right the audience will give you a second chance. That it is possible," Rothman said.

Apparently, the train wreck that was Daredevil was not enough to discourage sequel talk.

"And I think that you see that 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.

Would it be as dark? I don't know because what it really needs is, it needs a visionary at the level that Chris Nolan was. 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. Right? What we try to do is to get a creative engine for it, that really had a great vision for it, that's what we would look for.”
