NEWS: A Daredevil Reboot?
It appears as though the blind lawyer/superhero Daredevil may not be as dead as many of us thought, and some wanted.
Recently, a blog for the LA based comic book store, Golden Apple Comics, saw "Battlestar Gallactica" star Katee Sackhoff (Starbuck for those who watch the show), walk in and buy all comics that contained the character of Typhoid Mary, with "hopes of getting a part for a marvel movie."
So we got a little visit in our comic shop last week by Katee Sackhoff, also known as Starbuck for her role on BSG. She proceeded to grab all the Typhoid Mary
comics we had and has hopes to get a part for a Marvel movie
Now, this can mean a couple of things.
First off, die hard Marvel comics fans will remember that Mary is not only a lover, but a longstanding enemy of our masked handicapped hero. She is a mutant with a multiple personality disorder who comes to control various types of powers in relation to the personality that she is inhabiting at the time.
However, Mary is also a character that has had her schizo hands in many story arcs within the life and times of the merc with a mouth, and upcoming spin-off foder, Deadpool.
I'm not insanely familiar with the Daredevil story and it's subsequent storylines, but this is an interesting idea. She is stunning to look at, and she's one hell of an actress to book. The character sounds interesting, and even though the character WAS in the Daredevil spin-off, Elektra, if they reboot the franchise, I will be more than happy to give it another shot. The idea of Daredevil as a character is intriguing, and if they get the right cast, this could be a great film.
That said, I don't have much of the same hope for the yet to really be discussed Deadpool spin off. It's a fine idea, with a PERFECT casting choice in Ryan Reynolds who portrayed him in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but unless Marvel takes complete control of the film (which has been talked about), it will almost dead on arrival, at least in my eyes.
