Marvel reclaims Daredevil

Emancipated: Daredevil is finally back in Marvel’s hands. Could be the start of a new line of Marvel movies that are darker and more gritty. (art by Maleev)

 

Now that Marvel studios has reclaimed the rights to Daredevil, can fans expect horn head to be assimilated into the Avengers? Not so fast. While comic book fans are familiar with the fact writer Brian Michael Bendis bringing Matt Murdock into the Avengers I believe Marvel might have bolder plans for the costumed crime fighter.

 

Writers Frank Miller, Brian Michael Bendis, & Ed Brubaker have kept the tradition of Daredevil’s darkest tales but the talents of Mark Waid who has successfully balanced action, adventure and integrated DD’s street life with the Marvel Universe.

Frank Miller’s Daredevil set the tone for gritty street level heroes from which a lot of different marvel heroes could easily fit into. Marvel heroes such as Luke Cage: Hero for Hire, Iron Fist, Shang-Chi, the Punisher, Moon Knight, and Black Panther could be part of a secondary wheel of more modest budgeted movies with a PG-13 rating that rides the line between super hero and vigilante.

 

Shaft meets Ali: Luke Cage was a ground breaking character who had a criminal background but found himself a changed man. Can a DD movie inspire Marvel’s next movie to have a black character as the lead?

The best themes of Daredevil dealt with Matt Murdock’s inner turmoil, which director would be best suited to capture the martial arts savy of DD and the blind faith of a troubled man?

 

Can you hear me now: McNaughton’s Taken is the hottest action film director today. He can add one more feather to his cap with Daredevil if Marvel gives him a chance.

Pierre Morel: Taken, The Transporter, Before Sunset

Blood Sport: Director Gareth Evans turned violence into an art form in the Raid: Redemption.

 

Gareth Evans: The Raid, Redemption, Footsteps

Luck of the Irish: Director Philip Noyce understood the obsessive conflicted nature of the Irish as a benefit and a hazard.

 

Philip Noyce: Patriot Games, Salt, the Bone Collector

 

Helter Skelter: Director John McNaughton with Michael Rooker captured the de-stabilized mind of a serial killer.

: Henry Portrait of a Serial Killer, Mad Dog and Glory, Lansky, Wild Things
