There's a new Daredevil movie ahead of us. Fox intends indeed to bring back the blind superhero to the big screen. Director David Slade (30 Days of Night, Twilight Eclipse) has been hired to helm the project. It's not clear yet if the film is going to be a reboot or a sequel to the 2003 film that starred Ben Affleck: according to Variety, it's not a reboot per se, rather a continuation of the Daredevil saga.
For those who don't know him here's a brief summary of Daredevil's origins: Matt Murdock was blinded by a radioactive substance. While he no longer can see, the radioactive exposure heightened his remaining senses beyond normal human ability. One day he donned a superhero costume to avenge his father who was killed and from then became the superhero Daredevil. Lawyer during the day, he's a superhero by night.
Here's the movie trailer of the 2003 Daredevil movie:
I doubt Ben Affleck will return for this news Daredevil movie, so they'll have to find new actor. Who do you think could take over the role?
Anyway, more information about the new Daredevil movie soon!
Update - A few words from David Slade about the new Daredevil movie:
It will bare no relation to the previous Daredevil movie in any way. We are at early planning stages and have not yet discussed any cast."
