Clark Duke And The ‘Daredevil’ Reboot

#1 Edited by Icon (2044 posts) - - Show Bio

Actor (Kick-Ass, Hot Tub Time Machine) and burgeoning writer, Clark Duke, was recently interviewed and expressed real interest in Fox and Marvel's Daredevil reboot. He had the following to say.  

FSR: Are there any comics you’d interested in adapting yourself?

Clark Duke: Yeah, I wish they’d let me write and direct a reboot of Daredevil. I think there’s definitely a way to do Daredevil correctly that nobody’s figured out for some reason.

FSR: What would you do differently?

Clark Duke: First of all just tonally. I would completely… he’s a pulp hero, I think you address it, you have to have respect for the reality of it to some extent. And also I think you play with, the most interesting thing about him is he’s a lawyer who’s committing crime every night, he’s a catholic that dresses up like the devil, there’s all this thematic stuff that’s so fun to play with, that’s so awesome, I think [Ed] Brubaker’s run is my generations’ defining… I think they’re honestly better than the Frank Miller run. And somebody should make that into a film.

FSR. And that somebody is Clark Duke .

Clark Duke: Like Fox is gonna let me… start that rumor, maybe they’ll call me. I could write the hell out of that Daredevil movie though.

I'm not so sure he would be right for this film, but he does seem to know what he is talking about. Good to see another fan in Hollywood too, and hopefully whoever they do get to write the film will be someone(s) who share this guys passion for DD.

I like his ideas but since he's never wrote something I don't know if he'd manage it.
 
Having a fan doesn't always help. Affleck was a huge fan of DD and well...
