| And I'd agree with it as well. I know I'm in a very small minority when I say that I liked Daredevil but honestly? Add in the court-room side story that got cut from the cinematic version and its instantly a lot better film.
Thing is for me being a fan-boy of the comic-book I don't think I'd ever be sated with a movie version of DD - when I went to the cinema to see the film back in '03 I embarrassed my then girlfriend by sitting there grumbling that Kingpin was white in the comic books, M More|

|After Fox shat all over the Fantastic Four and ran the X-men into the ground I dread another adaptation from them, but Deadpool has awesome cinematic potential. Reynolds may just about pull it off, as long as the script is good, and it would really need to be good.

|I think as long as it's done well, any super hearo film is a good thing. It's often that the film and script is bad not the character themselves. So Deadpool might be cool?
Dare devil was pretty bad. Unrrealistic, bad cating so a re-boot would eb a cool thing. kevin Smith actually wrote for Dare devil for a while so he might be a good choice to direst.
Oh and i completley disagree that the Hulk reeboot didnt work. that was a great film! More|

| Marvel's Next Films|
| Fisrtly, after the success of Iron Man and the decent takings for The Incredible Hulk, Marvel should go around and buy back all the rights to their characters. The beauty of those two films was the mere mention and cameos of other characters from the universe. Who wouldnt want to see Matt Murdock pop up in a Spiderman film to represent him in some case, to see a daily bugle headline crediting another superhero group for something, the mere mention by any other character of the xmen, spide More|

|20th Century Fox is worst studio for directors to work for (unless you are mega-powerful James Cameron or Steven Spielberg). It was sheer luck that they got Bryan Singer for the first 2 X-Men films. Fox did not know what to do with the FF (making a mess of Dr Doom) and Mark Johnson is a terrible director (tone of Daredevil was a mess and Ghost Rider was dull). Hope the studio becomes bankrupt !

|Yes, they need to redo Daredevil. The fight in the playground and the campy versions of Elektra and Bullseye pissed me off to no end. If they did a sequel it would STILL need to be retooled in some fashion and made darker.
I'd love to see a retooled X-Men flick as well. Skip Young X-Men, just either do New Mutants or Generation X instead!

|Dare Devil doesn't suck????|
|Im afraid I must agree with TheTaf.
I watched Dare Devil 4 time FOUR TIMES!!! to make sure that the film sucked as much as it does. It is one of the worst Marvel conversions, while it may have looked nice BUT....Ben Affleck is awful...he may be a good director and work well in Kevin Smith Movies (Jersey Girl aside)...but generaly he has the emotional range of a plank.
The film was so camp it made Elton John seem like a coal miner!...it needs possibly re-inventing...but please god I hope More|

You most definitely can be a fan of both Marvel and DC, but (and this could be a gross generalisation), I think, like anything, people naturally have their preferences.

And it's worth saying that the whole 'that's not right, do it again' ethos of reboots is as much a failing of AUDIENCES as it is filmmakers. Not only are the makers of these films lacking imagination, but so are the watchers. They have lost the ability to imagine anything other than franchises as they allow themselves to be spoonfed by the studios output. This includes Empire as well.
