    Basically they got fucking owned this summer by Iron Man, Dark Knight, Hulk, Pineapple Express, Tropic Thunder and need something to recoup the lost summer :o

    I recall reading somewhere the "Young X-Men" project would be X-Men: First Class if they took it that far.

    Time for the Frank Miller/Statham Daredevil movie to come to fruition. Hell, give the Daredevil movie to Kevin Smith and let him write it.

    In other film news.....

    DJ Caruso (Disturbia, Eagle Eye) wants to direct Thor, depending on how well the movie is written...

    He's already met with Marvel, but is waiting to see how the script turns out...

    Reviving the Daredevil property? It's too early if they are going to try a remix.

    Oh man, I know you'll all think I'm gay for this, but Matt Damon should play Dare Devil.

    Oh the Ironing.

    Kevin Smith knows what the fucks up with Daredevil.
    You know what, I hadn't even thought of him being DD, but that's a great idea. :eek3:

    he wrote the opening arc to daredevil vol 2, he's responsible for the death of karen paige

    and matt damon would be a fucking retarded daredevil, he just oozes pretty-boy. daredevil is mean and needs a mean dude to play him. daredevil is one tough cookie to place an actor's face on...

    Jason Statham, if he could get rid of that accent, would be great.

    They're missing the point as usual. These movies did well because they're good. Not because they're based on comics. Studios always get caught up in this "me too" shit as if the type of movie is more important than whether it's good or not.

    Statham can act well enough for the part. If they put him in, maybe they'll make it more action oriented and not the gay prissy fight on a fucking see-saw bullshit we had in Affleck's DD.

    The downside to Smith writing Daredevil is he would want to cast Afleck again.

    I doubt it. During the SDCC, he wasn't so supportive of Affleck. haha.

    The latest marvel movies have been good because FANS have written the scripts. Hulk would not have been nearly as good had Norton, being a huge fan of Hulk, didn't write it. He knew what made hulk a good character and knew how to make it something that would entice people to watch.

    Iron Man would've been even better had a real Iron Man fan written that script.

    Kevin Smith as the writer and director with Matt Damon as Matt Murdock would be baller. Damon could do it, I'm sure of it.
