David Slade Talks Daredevil (and Deadpool)


The new director of the upcoming Daredevil movie took to Twitter this weekend to squash some rumors, and ended up revealing some things about both his Daredevil movie as well as the Deadpool one Fox is working on. Firstly, he confirmed that his Daredevil movie would have no connection to the Ben Affleck one; which does pretty much mean it may be a reboot after all:

So without breaking confidentiality, yes Daredevil, we have a great outline for a very strong character driven take on Mr Matt Murdock.

It will bare no relation to the previous Daredevil movie in any way. We are at early planning stages and have not yet discussed any cast.

Following that, it appears as if Fox talked to him about doing the Deadpool movie; but it appears as if Fox may be going with a comedy director:

Love DEADPOOL, was never engaged in the (quite fantastic) script, last I heard studio was looking at comedy directors. None of my business.

That would make sense as if you’ve ever read any Deadpool comic, the tone is always humorous.
