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.

As we reported a couple of weeks ago, David Slade has dropped out of the Daredevil reboot for Fox Studios, which sent execs into overdrive searching for a willing victim to take up the difficult (ridiculous) task of getting the film into production by October. Why does it need to be in production by October? That’s when the rights revert back to Marvel and they can get their hands on a very recognisable Avenger. So, who is mad enough to take on this challenge?  Continue reading

You don’t need me to tell you The Avengers has been HUGE. A billion dollars box office in NINETEEN days. To put that in to perspective, it took Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight six months to reach the billion dollar mark. Marvel/Disney are dancing all the way to the bank, but what happens now? It’ll be three years until Avengers 2 if we’re lucky, what shall we do in the meantime? Worry not, Marvel has some plans (apparently)… Continue reading

The seed was sewn back in 2008 with Jon Favreau’s Iron Man. Samuel L. Jackson’s cameo appearance as Nick Fury at the end of the film. The Avenger Initiative, he said. The very mention sent a quiver of excitement down the spines of every comic book loving geek the world over.

Four years and four films laying the groundwork (The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, and Captain America: The First Avenger), and we arrive at the big moment – The Avengers. And my gosh, are we ready for it.
