More X-Men and Another Daredevil?
According to an article in Variety, Fox didn’t have such a good summer this year. That’s never good for a studio. So, they’re taking a look at what they can do to spice things up.
Though Fox has no plans for a major overhaul, the studio has scheduled a strategy meeting to assess the status of its superheroes, a group sorely missed this summer. On the agenda, Fox will mull the possibility of more “X-Men” spinoffs, including a young-X-Men project as well as “Deadpool,” based on a character played by Ryan Reynolds in “Wolverine.” The studio is even considering reviving the “Daredevil” property.
Now, I’m a huge fan of Deadpool as a character, and Ryan Reynolds sounds to me like a great choice to play him. The X-Men movies are second only to Christopher Nolan’s Batman franchise in my scale of awesome comic-to-movie conversions, so a new X-Men spinoff could be awesome.
As for a new Daredevil movie, I’m seriously down with that one as well. I didn’t think the Ben Affleck movie was that bad, over all. Sure, it’s wasn’t Batman Begins by any stretch, but it was a solid movie that was well above even the old Superman movies with the late Christopher Reeves IMHO.
So good luck to Fox! I hope they follow through on these concepts! It’ll give me something to be excited about until the Thor movie comes out in July, 2010!
