‘Daredevil’: Netflix Show’s Stars Share Their Thoughts On 2003 Film

daredevil-netflix-shows-stars-share-their-thoughts-on-2003-film

Daredevil, at least the Netflix and Marvel combined production of Daredevil, has been quite the success for the comic publisher. However, there was time where Daredevil wasn’t as widely well-regarded in adaptation form. Prior to Charlie Cox, there was Ben Affleck and director Mark Steven Johnson adapted parts of popular Daredevil comics, and the film mostly tanked with the public writ large.

This was in the interim between the breakout X-Men, the first film of that franchise, and the later comicbook revolution in film. Johnson also directed the first Ghost Rider film. Though the Netlfix series has widely surpassed the film in fans’ eyes, Charie Cox and company actually “really, really like” the Ben Affleck-led Daredevil film, according to Comicbook.

“I actually really, really liked the film and thought Ben Affleck did a really good job. I think the film is tonally a bit confused [but] I actually really enjoyed it. I think that if you make Spider-Man, and I don’t know much about the other characters to be honest, but if you make Spider-man, for example, you can make a movie for kids and adults and it can have that kind of humor because I think it’s true to the characters for the most part. Daredevil needs to be on a platform like Netflix because the source material is so dark and so complicated and so sinister at times. I think what benefited us so much was that Netflix wanted to make the show with Marvel and we were able to embrace those darker tones.”

The new Daredevil’s thoughts on the subject mostly mirror what many reasonable reviewers have already opined and stated about the 2003 film in the past.

Charlie-Cox-as-Daredevil

Daredevil co-star Elden Henson backed the Ben Affleck Daredevil film as well. He explained that “…they were making these types of superhero things” at that time.

“Just so everyone knows out there – it’s not easy to make a movie. It’s really hard. No one sets out to make a bad movie or disappoint anybody. I think they were [just] making these types of superhero things in a much different way back then.”

It is unlikely that any of this will change fans’ minds at this point, but it hopefully helps those who worked on the 2003 film feel a little bit better about making one of the comicbook films that had a “failure to launch,” so to speak,” in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Robert Kirkman Knows Exactly How ‘The Walking Dead’ Will End

Robert Kirkman

There is an ending to Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead, as he’s “always taking baby steps toward that point” in the comic, but it appears the creator is keeping AMC and showrunner Scott Gimple in the dark, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Kirkman explained the situation to EW.

“There’s no communication whatsoever. They have no approval over what happens in the comic. Scott Gimple is an avid reader of the comic, and prefers to experience the comic book as a reader, so he gets the advance issues as they’re published, but he doesn’t read scripts. He gets mad at me if I give him any kind of indication as to what’s coming, because he doesn’t like spoilers,” said Kirkman.

“So, they’re kind of a hundred percent in the dark, which I guess is pretty remarkable, and I would probably say it’s a testament to the trust that AMC has in me. I mean, I guess to a certain extent, at this point, the comic book is kind of a workshop of future seasons of the show, and it’s fun to think that I can just completely torpedo the story if I wanted to,” said Kirkman.

The comic book is in the middle of ‘The Whisper War’ and is about 62 issues ahead of the AMC series that recently introduced Negan, with ‘All Out War’ on the horizon. There is enough material available for Rick and his crew to reach ten seasons and beyond on AMC.

Do you think Kirkman will end The Walking Dead with issue 200?

New ‘Rogue One’ Trailer Features Plenty More Darth Vader

Rogue One

A new international trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story  has been unveiled. And it heavily features everyone’s favorite Sith Lord, Darth Vader himself. At first, it seemed Lucasfilm was slow to dole out how much Vader we could expect in the movie, but it seems now like the classic villain will have a fairly substantial role. You can check out the trailer below.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Mads Mikkelsen, Ben Mendelsohn, Alan Tudyk, Donny Yen, Valene Kane, Riz Ahmed, Genevieve O’Reilly, Jimmy Smits, James Earl Jones,  and Forrest Whitaker.  It tells the story of the rag-tag team who steal the famed plans for the first Death Star, an act that allows for its destruction by the rebels in Star Wars: A New Hope. It is directed by Gareth Edwards, from a screenplay written by Chris Weitz and Tony Gilroy

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will hit theaters on December 16, 2016.

‘Kong: Skull Island’ Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts Shows Off Kong, Talks Movie’s Plan

Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island is getting close to us, so director Jordan Vogt-Roberts sat down with Entertainment Weekly to talk about the direction this prequel will take.

The site also gave us our first look at Kong and, spoiler alert, he’s a gigantic gorilla:

Kong: Skull Island

He looks great, but about as expected. What’s more interesting about the EW article is what Vogt-Roberts had to say about Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla, about monster movies in general, and how he is ready to throw all sorts of action in our face:

We’re also fundamentally not playing the same game that Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla did and most monster movies do, which I’m sort of sick of the notion that a monster movie needs to wait an hour or 40 minutes until the creature shows up. Kong traditionally does not show up in these movies until very, very late, and the monster traditionally does not show up until very, very late in a monster movie, so a lot of these movies tend to have this structure that’s a bit of a slow burn. Something about this movie made me want to reject that and play a very, very different game.

This, on top of the cast that includes Brie Larson, John Goodman, Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Hiddleston, John C. Reilly, and Corey Hawkins, and I am all the way in on this one.

Kong: Skull Island opens March 10 next year.
