Sorry, Ben! Daredevil Getting The Reboot Treatment

daredevil getting reboot treatment

Last we heard about Daredevil, Matt Damon was speaking about how he ALMOST played the title role that eventually went to Ben Affleck.

Looks like Matt will have a second chance, because 30 Days of Night director David Slade is working on a Daredevil reboot for 20th Century Fox.

Details are scarce at this point, but reports say that the story will be based on Frank Miller & David Mazzucchelli's Born Again story arc, "which has the Kingpin discovering Daredevil's secret identity, Matt Murdoch, and destroying Murdoch's life."

We're not sure how necessary this is, but we suppose we'll be curious to see who they cast as Daredevil.

How about Garrett Hedlund? After seeing Tron: Legacy, we're thinking he's a VERY solid choice for upcoming action flicks.

Who do U think would be a good choice for the new Daredevil?

    This guy went to acting school with my sisters. He's a joke.
    He's from Scottsdale, AZ…aka where the wealthy live. Well no one wanted just another guy, he needed a story. So he made up some shit about him being from a poor town in Iowa or some shitty state so people can feel bad for him.
    This guy's a douche.
    But I wouldn't expect anything less from you Mario.

    Why would you say "Sorry, Ben!'? I am sure Ben was aware that at some point they would make another Daredevil with out him in it.

    I don't find this particular superhero very interesting. He's on par with Aquaman, a superhero so weak they won't even make a movie about him. After seeing Ben Afleck's Daredevil I'm pretty sure I'll be hating the character forever. I don't get the theory behind rebooting marginal (I'm being generous calling this franchise marginal) action heroes. Have we run out of superheros? Can't we make a new one up?

    Re: Ilene Valencia – you seem bitter honey. everyone that has worked with him have all said hes the sweetest guy and he is super nice in interviews - doesnt even come out looking ingenuine AT ALL. and since when the fuck was scottsdale a rich ppl only city? thats bullshit too by the way. and why the fuck would he wana make up that he was from Iowa when he came from ROSEAU, MINNESOTA you shithead. you dont even kno the guy personally and you call him a douche. talk about bein closeminded.

    and personally even tho garrett is perfect for action movies, hed be a better fit as damons replacement for bourne than rebooting daredevil. that movie sucked dick anyways and that hero sucks in general. garrett can do so much better than that.
