The Studio Without Fear

Remember that horrible Daredevil movie with Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner in black leather pants. I know it was terrible, but you know what's going to be worse than that? A new Daredevil movie. Yep, going with the Spider-Man trend of starting a new, the new Daredevil project is going to be a re-boot of the character film wise. Let's be honest, outside of the comic nerd world nobody really cares about Daredevil, yeah sure he's cool and all but regular people want Captain America and Iron Man over Matt Murdock and his milky blue eyes any day.
FOX has already hired writer David Scarpa to pen a screenplay. Scarpa is the same guy who wrote "The Day the Earth Stood Still", the remake that pretty much put Keanu Reeves in his most accurate role ever. An emotionless planetary being. But yeah, I know, that movie sucked too. This is more of a grasping at the last slice of pizza for FOX.
(ironically this movie did make some people go blind)
If FOX doesn't get moving on production all of the character rights will swing back to Disney and Marvel, so I guess it'd be better for them to make a mediocre film than no film at all. I guess the one good thing that can come from this is maybe we'll get to see some Iron Fist action. But odds are we won't.
To ease the inevitable pain here is an amazing drawing of the guardian of Hell's Kitchen by Spanish comic book artist Rafael Grampa. Yes that's his real last name.
Notice the Everlast heavy bag gloves.
Oh and congratulations Saints on an awesome Super Bowl victory. Shawn Payton has testicles the size of softballs for calling an on-sides kick at the start of the 3rd quarter.
