DAREDEVIL REBOOT

FOX had the rights to make a DAREDEVIL movie and plans were in place... but the rights have expired and reverted back to Marvel. David Slade was originally going to direct, and then had to step down due to his work on Hannibal. Then Joe Carnahan pitched his own 70's version of DD, which FOX apparently was interested in doing, but the deadine was too close to get production underway. It remains to be seen what Marvel may do now with DD back in its studio.

UPDATE: September 24, 2009 - From an article in Variety, it was mentioned that "Fox was 'quietly developing a newer version of Daredevil'"

DAREDEVIL

DAREDEVIL (2003)

The Daredevil movie was released on February 14, 2003, and starred Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner, Michael Clarke Duncan and Colin Farrell. It was written and directed by Mark Steven Johnson.

There are two versions of the DVD: A 2-disc edition with lots of extras, and a single disc "Director's Cut". In 2008, a Blu-ray disc was also released, which has the Director's Cut, along with the extras from the first DVD.

Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001)

Released in late 2001, this film by Kevin Smith features a very small cameo of Daredevil fighting a group of ninjas. Jay and Silent Bob pass by a movie shoot of a 'Daredevil' movie in production. Even Joe Quesada makes an appearance as a pizza delivery guy in the movie.

On the 2-disc DVD set that came out in February 2002, the deleted scenes feature an extended look at the DD cameo. Look for it under the 'COMICS!!!!' title in the Deleted Scenes part of disc 2. Mark Steven Johnson is the 'director' of this make believe DD movie within this movie.

Here's a link to a pic from the NewsAskew.com site.

The Trial of the Incredible Hulk

Thanks to Alan Wright for these screen captures of the TV movie.
 

Many of you may remember the Hulk movies that aired in the 80's. This movie had Daredevil guest-starring. Daredevil was featured in a black costume. Rex Smith (remember him from Solid Gold?) played Matt/Daredevil, and John Rhys-Davies (Sliders, Raiders of the Lost Ark) played Fisk.

There were plans on making DD into a series directly from his movie, but no network picked up the pilot. Apparently it is available on bootleg. Anyone have a copy?

There is an illegal copy of this movie on DVD in Canada (a company called Top Ten New Media put it out and it was available in Wal-Mart), and the official version came out in May 2003 as part of The Incredible Hulk collection, with loads of extras. There is a VHS copy of the movie that appears on eBay from time to time.


Daredevil/Black Widow TV Series (1975)

 

(Source: Getty Images: here and here.)

Angela Bowie, former wife of David Bowie, and Ben Carruthers took these promo shots in 1975 for a planned Daredevil/Black Widow TV series. Nothing was ever filmed, as Angela Bowie herself explains in this e-mail, after I asked her about the series...

Dear Kuljit,

Thank you for your interest and e-mail.
I am surprised that you ask me that question. I received permission from Stan Lee
to have the rights to Daredevil and Black Widow for a year.
We were unable to place the series.
Actor, writer, Benny Carruthers and I did the photo shoot with Terry
O'Neill and Natasha Kornilkoff costume designer and Barbara Daly - make-up
in London and that was all that ever happened. Unfortunately at that time
it was considered too difficult and expensive to film, special effects
etc.

I appreciate your asking,

kindest regards,
Angie
