Didn't even bother watching this first when I heard Afleck was involved.

One of the points of this deal with 'Daredevil' staying with Fox would be that Fox would have to give the rights to the 'Fantastic Four' universe to Marvel, which includes the big bad villain Galactus. You remember Galactus. He showed up during the end credit sequence of 'The Avengers'.

So Satan then? I guess it makes sense in a way.

Great article..except Galactus was not in Avengers and there is no other proof that this story about FF going back to Marvel if DD gets picked up is true.

And honestly, there is no reason why a studio would keep DD over FF.

Unless that studio was run by an idiot...

//oh right - Fox.

Well, while most of you nerd out about Frank Miller's darker turns, I'll nerd out on the possible R rating and the fact Joe Carnahan is directly. He can be stupid fun (Smokin' Aces), and gritty grim (Narc). I highly recommend watching Narc. Pretty heavy film.
 
2012-08-06 10:41:47 PM
I really want to believe the part about Marvel letting Fox keep DD in exchange for getting FF back, but then this is from a website that couldn't be bothered to get the post credit scene in Avengers right. Since they are planning on using Thanos, this would give them Adam Warlock, and open up for of the galactic Marvel universe, Kree, Skrulls, Surfer, etc. Oh and I guess they'd have FF too.

Don't really care about FF, Reed is useless and we have enough brain power between Stark, Banner, and Pym is coming.

But everyone knows the only villain in Superman is Lex Luthor (ugh). I do think Superman movie done with Darksied could be really good. I also don't trust DC not to completely gaff it up. Though if Lobo turns out decent it could waylay some of my fears.
 
2012-08-06 10:48:09 PM
I liked the original one. It was very much Daredevil, and everyone involved was well cast. Except Bullseye, he was a bit to psycho, not enough assassin.

Miller sucks. Always has, always will.
Nothing original or interesting has ever come from that man.

Deadline has been pretty 50/50 for me, but they're reporting that Fox is saying no way, no how are they giving up Galactus and Silver Surfer and are more prepared to just let Daredevil go.

The Born Again story arc that Miller penned waaay back in 1986 was pretty much as good as Daredevil ever got before I quit buying them. At the time I'd never read shiat like that in a comic before. If that's the storyline they go for in the film and it's adapted faithfully, then it has the potential to be pretty good. I don't think they'd be able to pull off a PG-13 though.

Yeah, me too on LOEG. The second volume of Top 10 is also really good, as is The 49'ers, a prequel to Top 10.

I also kind of wonder if Miller has become aware of the fact that, while he and Moore were the BMOC's in the mid-80's, he is now a has-been while Moore is perhaps a qualified genius. That would have to sting and could partially explain why he became such a whiney bastard.

Living in the shadow of someone that was once considered an equal would undoubtedly suck.

Not that I really care. After "The Dark Knight Strikes Again," it seemed like the quality of his work overall diminished. To learn that he was now yelling at Muslim clouds was the final nail in the coffin for me.

Whoever did the physics of the fight scenes should never work in Hollywood again, but other than that, please no reboot.

Anybody else getting sick of superhero movies? It's not that I don't like them. I like Boston creme pie too. But you can only eat so much Boston creme pie before you get so sick of it that the mere thought of it makes you want to puke.

Come up with something new, Hollywood. I can throw out fifteen movie ideas without even thinking hard:
1. The Big Bang Theory: The Movie. Sheldon, Penny, & the gang team up to save the world from a physics-related disaster. Bonus: Sheldon falls into a vat of radioactive goo and becomes a superhero (we have to wean them gently from this superhero stuff)
2. You Wrote WHAT? Milquetoast Frank Ledbetter leads a double- no, triple, no! quadruple-life as IronRage472, UlookInAtMe34 and Studmuffin69, internet tough guy, uber troll, and online chick critic. Thinking he is perfectly anonymous, he makes rambling offensive posts on internet newsgroups, exposing friends' and neighbors' petty foibles and telling outrageous lies about his success with the ladies. His friends, employer, and wife find out, and he has to either make amends- or maybe, just maybe he can embrace all of his alter egos instead and regain his legitimacy.
3. People Trying on Clothes, The Movie. Follow the lives of four twenty-somethings as they shop, mingle, find and lose love, all while trying on clothes at various retail establishments. (Cue up Salsbury Hill, and.... Roll trailer...) In a World Where People TRY. ON. CLOTHES, one man has all the answers.... To all the wrong questions.
4. Shakespeare in LA. The BARD is BACK! And he's Latino! And he Break Dances! Follow the hijinks of Will and The 34th Avenue Elizabethans, a dance crew with a iambic pentameter beat. Extra e's on the end of all the words, biatches!
5. Four Men Tied Together. (Original working title: Murder on Half Dome). Free climbers Jesse, Lars, Frank, and the mysterious Eugene Oniegin discover a gristly scene while climbing in Yosemity. Soon, they're tied together- by murder. One by one, the killer takes his prey until it's just Jessie and Oniegin. Spoiler Alert! They're climbing DOWN the cliff! Oh yeah, baby- you've been memento'd.
6. Tin Cans. Tim and Lindsay, best friends since kindergarten, learn that a superhighway is going to run right between their two houses, separating them forever. Using Tim's handy-know-how and Lindsay's electronic gizmo hacking wizardry, the two plucky kids build a tin-can wireless network... and then grow up to be rivals in the dog-eat-dog world of telecommunications. Tim's multinational satellite network clashes with Lindsay's down-to-earth but not as profitable terrestrial ISP service. It's a hostile takeover- of her love!
7. Sheep That Don't Count. Follow the subtly interconnected lives of four people living lives of quiet desperation. They're not quite losers, but they're not anybody you'd be interested in knowing anything more about. The film bases its premise that sometimes art shouldn't imitate life because, hey, life can be kind of stupid sometimes. The revelation that the director actually INTENDED for it to suck will lead to an entire genre of deliberately vapid and boring cinema, vaguely poking fun at all of the films that achieved the same goal without really trying.
8. Visibility. Physic whiz Jeremy Bentham invents a device that allows anyone to see anything anywhere. "Tachyvideo" glasses penetrate any physical obstacle and allow you to watch your neighbors, your favorite movie stars, politicians, or whoever you want to. Crime scenes, sex, family disputes- you can watch it all... But who's watching YOU? The film explores issues of voyeurism that arise when ALL live in each others' public view. Also, there's no audio when the Tachyvideo glasses are on, making the "while viewing" scenes starkly silent.
9. Sixty-Four. A murder mystery that follows a set of characters of various importance as they move, sometimes obliquely, sometimes directly through a Manhattan cityscape. Conflicts and reversals, sometimes bloody, sometimes romantic move and sometimes eliminate the characters as each turn of the action takes place. Finally, the chief detective maneuvers his team into position, taking down the criminal mastermind. And then (Spoiler Alert!) you get to retrace all the moves and discover that it's been a CHESS GAME all along, played in a geographically idealized version of the NYC street grid.
10. Upskirt. Follow the adventures of pervy Adam, from grade school where he had the best polished shoes in his class to adulthood where he uses his camera savvy to snap illicit panty shots in a series of increasingly risky- and hilarious- situations (Japanese schoolgirls at the NYC Metropolitan Museum of Art, anyone?). But Adam meets his match- and love- when he tangles with Lizzy, a skort-wearing docent at the MoMA.
11. Citation Needed. Online encyclopedia editor Cal Carson gets stuck in a web of intrigue when he innocently updates a wiki article about an obscure 8th century theologian. Conspiracy theories lead back to an ancient order of Pythagorean philosophers who have been subtly influencing all the major power holders since 500 BC. Facing exposure, they target Cal for elimination. And only by following EVERY LINK in Wikipedia can he finally track down the information to expose them for the corrupt powermongers that they are.

OK. 11 Ideas. I really tried to throw out the other four, but I'm freaking tired.

Makes sense. If I were Fox (and not incredibly stupid), I'd try to figure out some cameos or crossovers between FF and X-Men. Also, somebody, somewhere, should have the Master List of all Marvel characters and where their movie rights belong. Who has the Kree and Skrulls? What about Namor? The Thunderbolts (w/ Norman Osborn)?
