News: Fox Pass On Joe Carnahan’s Daredevil, Rights Head Back To Marvel

Last time we talked about Daredevil Fox Studios were in talks with director Joe Carnahan. They wanted to get the film into production now in order to retain the rights to the character and not have them revert to Marvel. The Grey director produced some sizzle reels for his vision of The Man Without Fear, but Fox didn’t really like what they saw and decided to pass. With it now looking impossible to get the film into production by the October deadline, it seems Fox have given up and decided to let the rights go back to Marvel.

Carnahan is a good sort put the sizzle reels up on Youtube for everyone see.

And here’s the more violent NC-17 version. So, what do you think? We’re Fox right to pass on Carnahan’s version of Daredevil? Personally, as much as I like Carnahan, I’m kinda glad. This ’70s exploitation version of Daredevil doesn’t feel right to me. I know I’m in the minority here as a lot of my friends and folk I follow on Twitter really enjoyed the direction Carnahan was going. It simply left me cold. Maybe it’s because I’m really loving Mark Waid’s run on the comic at the moment, with his more positive, happier Matt Murdoch. Hey, let me know what you think. Are you glad that Marvel have got their hands on Daredevil again? Would you like to see him in The Avengers?

It’s not all bad, though, as Carnahan may get his chance to make a comic book movie thanks to Mark Millar’s Nemesis. Carnahan had been busy developing the screenplay with his brother but Fox apparently nixed it. Now the Scottish writer says it’s all go again. If you’re at all familiar with Millar, you’ll know to take anything he says with a pinch of salt. We’ll have to wait and see.
