Daredevil's chance to see the Light:
Okay, it's official, Fox is going to reboot the Daredevil franchise
. I don't think that this comes as a surprise to anyone, since the first film was poorly received, and Fox needs to make another movie soon or lose their rights to the character.
Thankfully for you guys, I guessed that this was going to happen and wrote a trilogy of plots that are sure to make money if used. The films are heavily based off of Frank Miller's run,* but I've made some changes to give comic fans some unexpected twists. So even if the next movie is a bust, you can read these and know that some half-decent flicks about a man without fear are possible.The films:
Film One: Daredevil: The Man Without Fear
-This is the film that introduces the main cast, and shows Daredevil's beginnings as a force in Hell's Kitchen.
Film Two: Daredevil II: The Hand's of Desire
-This is a retelling of the Daredevil/Elektra saga, only this time it's done right.
Film Three: Daredevil: Born Again
-This caps off the trilogy with a direct retelling of Daredevil: Born Again storyline. This ends Miller's stories on the Man without fear and leaves it open for people to retell great DD tales from other eras.On Ending:
These are the only Daredevil stories/plots I intend to write for a while. Although I've set up some plot points to make for an easy transfer into the Bendis and Brubaker** storylines, I don't plan to visit them. The reason for this is because I feel that these would make for a much better mini-series or television shows than movies.
So, that's my stab at writing Daredevil, if you like it, hate it, or demand that a major studio hire me as a consultant, write your comments and let me know!
