IESB Exclusive: FOX's Tom Rothman on a DAREDEVIL Reboot
Written by Robert Sanchez
Thursday, 02 October 2008

We've got part 2 of IESB's exclusive interview with 20th Century Fox co-chairman Tom Rothman for your viewing pleasure today.


In it, he addresses the possibility of a DAREDEVIL reboot. The film starring Ben Affleck and directed by Mark Steven Johnson was released in 2003 to over a $100 million dollar at the box office but panned by critics.

But the Hulk did it, why not Daredevil? You know what I am talking about...it's time for a REBOOT!

See what Rothman had to say about it below,

IESB: One of the brands that has made Fox a lot of money is Marvel. Recently, there was a reboot of the Hulk, which was alright, but I think it was mainly to get it ready for the Avengers film coming up. But there are two Marvel properties you control amongst others, Daredevil and Elektra. Both films didn't do too well but...reboot maybe?

Tom Rothman: A Daredevil, to use your words, reboot, is something we are thinking very seriously about.

IESB: Soon?

TR: Soon?

IESB: I have to ask.

TR: You've lost a lot a weight now Robert and you are going to live for a long time, this is the movie business, nothing is soon.

IESB: But there aren't any issues rights wise you would have to look into?

TR: No. We've got all the rights. And yes, I think that the thing the Hulk showed although, it did what it did, is that it is possible, that if you really do it right the audience will give you a second chance. That it is possible. And I think that you see that when they did Batman Begins, the first Nolan movie, that you can have made some mistakes along the way or movies that the audience wasn't that crazy about and then given the proper amount of time and the right creative vision behind it, you can, to use your word, reboot.

IESB: And Iron Man proved that a second tier hero done right can make lots of money.

TR: Correct, but these are good properties and I am actually encouraged by both the Hulk experience and particularly by what they did with Batman, after the relative disappointment of what the last Batman was [1990's incarnations].

IESB: Would you do Daredevil as dark as The Dark Knight?

TR: Would it be as dark? I don't know because what it really needs is, it needs a visionary at the level that Chris Nolan was. It needs someone, it needs a director, honestly, who has a genuine vision. What we wouldn't do is just do it for the sake of doing it. Right? What we try to do is to get a creative engine for it, that really had a great vision for it, that's what we would look for.

Abandoned by his mother, Matt Murdock was raised by his father, boxer "Battling Jack" Murdock, in Hell's Kitchen. Realizing that rules were needed to prevent people from behaving badly, young Matt decided to study law; however, when he saved a man from an oncoming truck, it spilled a radioactive cargo that rendered Matt blind while enhancing his remaining senses. Under the harsh tutelage of blind martial arts master Stick, Matt mastered his heightened senses and became a formidable fighter. He also attended Columbia University Law School alongside his best friend, Franklin "Foggy" Nelson; but before Matt earned his Juris Doctorate degree, his father was murdered by agents of the Fixer (Roscoe Sweeny) for refusing to throw a fight. Enraged when the legal system failed to bring the Fixer to justice, Matt donned a costume made from his father's boxing robe and went into action as "Daredevil," savagely beating his father's killers and frightening the Fixer himself to death. Establishing a small New York law firm with Foggy, Matt vowed to serve the law as Matt Murdock and to fight evils beyond the law's reach as Daredevil.

I wasn't in to comic books that much when the first one came out, and when I got in to Marvel more the consensus that the movie sucked has kept me from renting it. But if they made another one I would go see it. Dunno about a reboot though, I think they should do like Hulk and make it more of a sequel in that it doesn't have an origin story.

I know I'm firmly in the majority, but I really enjoyed Daredevil. I don't know what they could do to make it "better." Affleck turned in a great performance, but for some reason he gets ^^^^ on because he's Affleck. Kingpin was pretty great too. :dunno

How 'bout instead of a Daredevil movie, give hime a role in Spider-Man 4, or FF3 (if they make one).

I thought Affleck was well cast as Murdoch/DareDevil. He was the only really sold thing in the movie aside from Farrell's over-the-top take on Bullseye which I thought was a lot of fun. Ultimately, Johnson and the film let him down. All of those alt-rock songs and the heavy music video editing and of course the script...whoa...it was definitely not good.

I was say out of the names thrown around I'd cast personally Guy Pearce over Eckhart in Matt Murdock's role. Affleck did all right but didn't have the same humble look and then fiercity that the duality of Matt Murdock/Daredevil always shown. Eckhart could do that in spades but he seems more of a Captain America type than the thin, agile Daredevil look.

Oscar Isaac Wants to be Daredevil...

http://www.hbo.com/films/pu239/img/castandcrew/landing_oscar.jpg

Recently it's been reported that Daredevil is the next property to get the ol' reboot treatment. Rumors abound that several actors would like a shot at being Matt Murdock (Being Matt Murdock…sounds like it should have John Malkovich in it, huh?). If this is true that 20th Century Fox wants to take another stab at the red suited hero, it will be interesting to see who steps up for the part.

…it won't be Ben Affleck…

Affleck stated years ago that, "Wearing a costume was a source of humiliation for me, and something I wouldn’t want to do again soon." OK, strike him from the list…

Others who ARE reportedly interested are Jason (Transporter) Statham..who Frank Miller actually endorsed, and Oscar Isaac, who stated, “Daredevil is such an amazing character, I would love to do that,” Isaac said. “I’m not going to rag on the other Daredevil, but I would actually make myself blind for the role, that’s how much I want to do it. I would poke my eyes out, and then you would have an actual blind guy playing Daredevil. That would be my pitch. That’s where I’m starting at. Maybe I’ll rework it a little later, but I’m going to go with actually being blind.”

O….K….at least he's REALLY into the role…

Even so, with the right actor and right director, Daredevil could be a pretty badass franchise.

I don't know who Oscar Isaac is but can you imagine Jason Statham in that role?!?!? He wouldn't fit the Matt Murdock role but the Daredevil role would be outstanding...

Dunno about a reboot though, I think they should do like Hulk and make it more of a sequel in that it doesn't have an origin story.

Actually with this series I would love a reboot with a Batman Begins like origin story! The origin of his powers is kinda lame and very dated, but the origin of Daredevil from Matt Murdock is pretty cool!

Some new movement on this front...


DAREDEVIL Reboot Confirmed
Back in 2008, Frank Miller and Jason Statham both expressed interest in rebooting DAREDEVIL and Tom Rothman, head of FOX, made it clear that was something the high-ups were interested in.

Then last May I reported that Katee Sackhoff was rumored to be in the running for Typhoid Mary. In that article I said I hoped it was for a DAREDEVIL reboot as opposed to a part of the DEADPOOL movie.

Now it’s being reported that a DAREDEVIL reboot has been confirmed. This comes from Screen Rant: “Mike Fleming just picked up the exclusive that Daredevil is now definitely being rebooted. Regency will be handling the remake for distributor Fox and David Scarpa will be writing the script.”

Ok, So why is this a bad thing? Because it’s FOX. The only reason they are doing this now is to retain the rights to the character, not because they have the ‘right’ script. The truth is that I’d much rather they wait and let the rights go back to MARVEL, rather than rely on FOX to do something right. If the rights went back to MARVEL then Daredevil could show up in other movies as well. So yes, I know that I said this is what I wanted before, but I’ve since seen the light. I just want this done right.

That would be funny--Statham with a wig, doing a horrible American accent, attempting to play the part of a blind lawyer. Sounds like a Saturday Night Live skit gone bad.

Statham is very good at what he does, but I don't think that translates into being a good Daredevil by any means.

I think for Daredevil, more even than looks, you need someone with the acting range to play a really pitiful bastard, as DD was during the Miller run and beyond in the 80s. A guy who gets beat the f up on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. Who falls, experiences real darkness, and gets pushed to the edge, but can keep coming back because at heart, he's a hero.

Affleck didn't come close to having the skills, in my opinion (though that wasn't the previous film's only or major flaw). Maybe Christian Bale could, though I don't think there is a remote chance of him taking the role of course (and I'm not one of those guys who goes around suggesting that Bale should play every role in every film created from here on, as some appeared to be during the Dark Knight hype :lol ). I think Ryan Gosling could do it, though he would need to bulk up a bit. I could even imagine the A-Team guys of either Bradley Cooper or Sharlto Copley, though I don't think we've seen enough of either of them to know their real range (or ability to pull off convincing American accents).

Of course, some unknown would probably work best.

--edit: I see Guy Pearce suggested above. I think that could work--

If Miller is involved and they make this a dark movie it has he potential to be great. I enjoyed the DC of the first movie. Bring it on i say.

02-11-2010, 06:52 PM
Well, I don't know if Miller's involvement nowadays is a good idea or not. No doubt, he was the man in the 80s, and his ideas and stories from that period are still great, but since then? Dark Knight Returns, All Star Batman and Robin, the Spirit film. . . :monkey4

Frankly Daredevil may just not translate well to cinema.

From his outfit, to the implausible way he uses his billy club to his weak powers, it just seems destined to be a bit campy on film. I say this as a woman who probably would never have read superhero comics ever if someone had not introduced me to Frank Miller's Daredevil run when I was young.

I mean to make Batman not look like a tool they had to strip his outfit of all colour and add a whole back story to justify his costume's existence from a utility standpoint. Random New York lawyer is not going to have Lucuis Fox/Tony Stark to run to for the gadgets necessary to take a character with no super strength/endurance/flight to a level that competes story-wise with characters like Superman and Spider-man, who simply blow you away with their abilities.

Darklord Dave
02-11-2010, 11:07 PM
What makes Daredevil interesting is that he is so limited and handicapped yet still puts on a circus suit and goes out and fights crime. I thought the outfit from the Affleck film was fine, but I'd agree that they need a great actor to convey the angst of the character.

It will have to be someone under 30 though, I can't think of anyone off the top of my head that would be perfect for the role.

I think that having someone too young would be silly, TBH. He is, after all, a lawyer and most lawyers tend not to have their own law offices while under 30... I've never imagined DD being younger then 33-35. The thought of someone under 30 playing him makes me think of a less mature, almost Perter Parker, portrayal of Murdock.... I hate to bring up Bale but someone around his age would work for me.

I guess Dexter could do it, but he would not be my first choice. He can obviously play a troubled character (he showed that in both Dexter and Six Feet Under). He's also in great physical shape. But frankly, I think his style/mannerisms are a little too wonky to play a Marvel hero. I also think people would have a hard time not thinking of him as Dexter at this point.

David Slade to Direct ‘Daredevil’ Reboot
Posted on Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

Don’t ever say Twilight didn’t do anything for people. Fresh off David Slade‘s $700 million dollar worldwide slaying with The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the director of Hard Candy and 30 Days of Night has just signed on to helm a reboot of the Marvel character Daredevil for 20th Century Fox. David Scarpa, writer of The Last Castle and Fox’s The Day the Earth Stood Still, was reportedly hired to write a script last year, but that could be a thing of the past. Read more after the break.

Variety exclusively broke the news, and though Scarpa was reportedly hired in February 2010 to work on a script, The Hollywood Reporter says no writer has been attached. What’s interesting though is that Slade’s film will supposedly be a “continuation” of the material set forth in the 2003 film that starred Ben Affleck, just without the actor’s involvement.

With a director now aboard, it seems like Daredevil will be the next superhero movie out of Fox who currently has X-Men: First Class and The Wolverine lined up. Slade was in talks to direct the latter, but that job went to Darren Aronofsky.

I’m sure we’re all curious to see what Slade thinks of the original film and what he plans to do new this time around. And chances are, he’ll tell us, as he was famously open with Twilight fans when he was directing that film. Daredevil is a very difficult character to bring to screen, though, with his almost comic looking bright red costume and incredibly heightened senses, which seem difficult to represent visually. However, there is most definitely a way to translate it in a way that’s both true to the comic and also accessible to non-fans.

Do you have any ideas of how or what Slade can do to make this project something special? And what do you think he must avoid from the 2003 film?

David Slade's Eclipse was a good movie, and it's the first Twilight film I really enjoyed. Daredevil the director's cut is still one of my favourite superhero films, so for me this is good news. I say stick close to the religious overtones, and keep it dark, and try to avoid the slapstick of Spider-man.

Can 30 Days of Night and Twilight Eclipse director David Slade undo the damage that Ben Affleck inflicted on Marvel's blind superhero, Daredevil? He's got a fighting chance — if they stick to the Born Again comic book series.

THR is reporting that rumored director Slade will be adaption the Frank Miller-written and David Mazzucchelli-illustrated Born Again Daredevil series. This is the storyline where ____ gets real for Matt Murdock, and the hero basically goes insane when his ex sells his identity off for heroin. So yeah, this could be really good. Plus Affleck is no longer attached to any Daredevil project, so the film could be getting some fresh blood.

I go to all the Twilight movies with the wife, and to be honest I really was not looking forward to Eclipse, as I only liked the last 15 mins of New Moon and pretty much thought the first one was comedy, but to my surprise I found Eclipse to be a really good movie, and the action scenes are really well done. David Slade actually managed to even get that Jacob guy to act, so in my book Daredevil is in good hands.

Director David Slade, who we just reported last week is attached to direct 20th Century Fox's Daredevil Reboot, wanted to give an update to clear up any rumors about the Daredevil Reboot, as well as Deadpool and The Wolverine, via his Twitter page. Here is what he had to say:

"So without breaking confidentiality, yes Daredevil, we have a great outline for a very strong character driven take on Mr. Matt Murdock. It will bare no relation to the previous Daredevil movie in any way. We are at early planning stages and have not yet discussed any cast.

Love Deadpool, was never engaged in the (quite fantastic) script, last I heard studio was looking at comedy directors. None of my business.

The Wolverine, there have been no discussions about this project to date. Interesting to see what will happen with that as the again excellent script by Chris McQuarrie was set largely in Japan."

Yeah, I think the movies need to turn down a bit... The market is saturated with Comic book movies, sequels reboots and origins...

I'd like some more fresh movies that are one offs and not a BS 'planned trilogy'! Avatar is an example of this... The movie stands well and the would will survive with out the next two films. I know I'll see them, but do we really need 2-5 movie films about it?

As for DareDevils reboot... James Franco could be good... Michael Fassbender?

It was far from a bad movie though IMO.

Was watching Daredevil Director's Cut again recently and I really love it. Thought it was a great movie. Love the tone of the movie. It was very TDK-ish, dark and gritty.

Didn't quite like Garner but thought that Afleck played the role really well. He is Murdoc in my eyes.

Some really cool action scenes (the bar fight in the beginning, the fights with Bulleye, the fight with Kingpin).

The latest:


Deadline reports talk from “studio insiders” that say Fox is actually looking at letting Daredevil go back to Marvel. Sure, the studio has a reportedly great script in hand with a ’70s thriller / classic Frank Miller vibe and Joe Carnahan (The Grey) in talks to direct. Looking at the recent Fox lineup, however, the success the studio has had with films like X-Men: First Class and Rise of the Planet of the Apes point to the studio being a lot more interested in Fantastic Four than Daredevil. A ’70s thriller vigilante hero movie isn’t the sort of thing Fox seems interested in now.

What Fox reportedly is interested in is either co-financing Daredevil with Marvel and Disney, or just letting the character go. This one is developing, and we’ll have more soon. Don’t get to set on any one outcome until we know there’s a real deal in place.

http://www.slashfilm.com/fox-denies-reports-galactus-trade-marvel-studios/?utm_source=Movie+Magic&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+slashfilm+%28%2FFilm%29

If the co-financing deal actually goes through where Marvel is allowed to play with DD and use that stable and vice versa with the Marvel Film U, I guarantee you that Sony, which is bleeding in the film department, will probably look to that for Spidey if it needs cash. They already sold off the merchandising rights to Marvel/Disney.

I really wish they'd all just co-produce. Let all the characters play in the sandbox. Everyone wins. Fans get to see more characters together like we want, the studios have less of their own money in each film, and they still get lots of money in the end. Whats the hold up! :lol

Sorry boys, Bad news on the Daredevil going to Marvel Front as of today.

"There's some exciting news for the future of Marvel on the big screen today as Variety reports that 20th Century Fox and Walt Disney Pictures are negotiating a deal that could potentially send the rights to some key "Fantastic Four" characters back to Marvel Studios. In return, Fox would get an extension in releasing their rebooted Daredevil, now said to have Joe Carnahan in discussions to direct.

Without an extension, Fox will have to move forward with Daredevil immediately and begin production by October 10th. The deal would potentially give Marvel Studios the ability to use characters like the Silver Surfer, Galactus and Uatu the Watcher in upcoming releases.

If a deal is worked out, there's still no assurance of when or how the new characters might be utilized, but they'd certainly fit right in to Marvel's plans to expand their cinematic universe to the cosmos with 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy.

Carnahan, who directed this year's The Grey, is also slated to remake Death Wish for MGM.

David Slade was previously attached to Daredevil, but recently left the project. The studio is also rebooting Fantastic Four and have set Chronicle director Josh Trank to helm."

This might not be too bad. I hope whomever decides to make the next Daredevil movie gets it right because he's a very strong B-list character that can be successful if handled properly.

Juxtaposing less fantastic characters (Hawkeye, Daredevil, Iron Fist, etc.) with the more fantastic ones (Hulk, Iron Man, et al.) could make for some good drama and storytelling if done well. I think Daredevil/Matt Murdoch could be a real anchor of the proposed Marvel TV series, if nothing else. He's a really complex and interesting character that has had some great comic stories that could influence live-action stories moving forward. I'll cross fingers that Marvel will use him, and will use him well.

Getting Daredevil and all the related characters especially The Kingpin back means they have everything they need to create the street level Marvel Universe. They could do a Punisher show and have an occasional crossover. TV may also be the best place to introduce Moon Knight, Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

Wow, what a craptastic video, but at least whoever made it got the comic scenes perfect, Miller and Mazzucchelli's run had to be one of the greatest and they took some of their best as inspiration.

I will always remember the end of that issue when Kingpin blew up the brownstone. He had Matt so freaking skull ****ed and then gave his hand up.

"Nice piece of work Kingpin - you shouldn't have signed it."

Born again is probably one of my favorite of all Daredevil storylines.

Personally, I dig the 70's tone. Imagine a "retro" Marvel Knights mini-universe. Daredevil in the same vein as Taxi Driver, The Punisher a la Death Wish, Heroes for Hire as a Kung-Fu/Exploitation film, Moon Knight, Blade, and even the Tomb of Dracula stuff as pseudo-horror/exploitation films.

True. :lol

Still - like Chapter9, I dig the Elektra film, I've owned it for a while now, & it's definitely got re-watch value for me. I dig Jennifer Garner too.

The documentary on the DVD is excellent too btw. Lots of interview stuff with Frank Miller, & a real in depth look at the character over the life of the comic.

I've always liked the DD film as well - even with it's crappy aspects. :lol

Elektra has to be one of the worst superhero movies I've seen,
even worst than Ghost rider 2.




I recently watched the 'directors cut' version of Daredevil and I actually did not hate it. I think the worst thing about it is probably the use of modern rock music instead of an original score. They were obviously really trying to sell that soundtrack. Also, Ben Affleck is pretty flat in it. Its not the worst movie I've ever seen.

I love the directors cut. doesn't really have a strong villain but I like it, I like it a lot more than Fantastic 4 or the first punisher for example.

DDDC is a fun and entertaining movie, like the ending with the reporter deleting his story.

I might even enjoy DDDC more than TDKR. :lol

FF4 # 1 DC is also fun.

We likely won't see the movie anytime soon, so I hope they do a Daredevil TV show instead.

That's what you get when you want Marvel Studios to control all their characters....many of them gathering dust.

Feige is misspeaking, or I should say jumping the gun.


Director Joe Carnahan seems to be ready to toss in the towel on the last ditch attempt to reboot the Marvel superhero Daredevil before Fox’s rights to the franchise expire this fall. Carnahan sent out a tweet today saying, “I think my idea for a certain retro, red-suited, Serpico-styled superhero went up in smoke today kids.”

The rights do not expire until Fall of 2013. If 20th Century Fox wanted to, they could go back to David Slade or even hire someone new to hit it, what the bloggers are assuming is that they won't.

Plus Feige has the option to make the film under the Marvel Studios banner if he wants or even use the character in any of the existing projects.

There are already rumors about how they are going to utilize it once it occurs with many pointing to cameo options using Murdock first over Daredevil himself.

What is best to assume is that 20th Century Fox is probably thrown their hands up and said "just let them expire" but if they wanted to they could snag them at the last second. In order to keep them they'd just have to film something and put it in a movie theater and sell one ticket, the thing is for Fox the DD brand hasn't been worth what was paid for it.

Pity Sony did not negotiate with Fox. A crossover with Spidey would have been great.

Unfortunately busy so I couldn't really hit the site as much as I'd like but I pop in when I can.

It should be noted that Marvel is thinking about doing "Secret Avengers" or even "New Avengers" to try and capitalize on the whole Avengers thing on the years that their tentpole isn't up and running and a character like Daredevil could easily be shoehorned in there. Of course it's all blogger rumors and "I heard this from some guy...." but it seems logical to stick a team similar to The Avengers, take someone like SLJ or even Chris Evans who have multi deals on the table and kickstart another franchise.


Pity Sony did not negotiate with Fox. A crossover with Spidey would have been great.

Sony's ASM rights may be in jeopardy too, not because the film didn't do well but because their film division is supposedly bleeding hard. The merchandising rights for ASM2 already belong to Marvel.

I would also point out that the villains of Daredevil revert as well which means you might see Bulleye, Kingpin, Typhoid Mary all before you see actual Daredevil.

New Avengers would get my butt in a seat.

Iron Fist, Daredevil, Mockingbird, Luke Cage, Moon Knight and fix the godawful Hawkeye by turning him into Ronin

If Spidey goes back to Marvel, I hope they stick with the current reboot universe, and just merge it into the rest of the MCU. Interesting that Marvel has the merch rights to ASM2...
