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!
