Fox discussing possible new marvel movies projects

UK, September 10, 2008 - Variety has let slip some interesting gossip regarding Fox's plans for future superhero movies.

In an artcle about the studio's less than-profitable summer line-up, it reveals that Fox has decided to look into the remaining comic book characters they have the rights to in an effort to replicate their rival's success.

Aparently one idea is a Young X-Men project that, similar to the animated series X-Men: Evolution, will follow the main characters as teenagers.

A second idea is a spin-off based around Deadpool -- the wisecracking mercenary from the upcoming X-Men Origins: Wolverine (which Fox will release next summer) to be played by Ryan Reynolds

The final possibility mentioned by the trade mag is a reboot of the Daredevil franchise, which ground to a halt after only one instalment when Ben Affleck played the blind superhero back in 2003.

I completely support a reboot of Daredevil if Fox intends to do it right, if not don't waste money or my time

The first Daredevil movie was good, they should have made a sequel instead of releasing Elektra.

the daredevil movie was a big let down, was bored to death in the cinema

I agree that it's better than Elektra though

I liked the whole Elektra Daredevil maybe what they should do is pick it up from there.

They need better casting....casting and storywriting are key....that and not overdoing the special effects....TDK and Iron man are two perfect blueprints for what a superhero movie can and should be...although Iron Man could have done with a better villain.

Daredevil desperately needs a reboot.

If Brad Pitt werent so popular I actually belive he could pull off a good Daredevil....people underestimate his acting ability
