In the wake of confirmation that 20th Century Fox was losing the character's rights to Marvel, initial director Joe Carnahan has offered an idea for what he had planned for their Daredevil reboot. After requesting and quickly gaining 6,000 followers on Twitter, Carnahan revealed not one, but two sizzle reels; differentiating in ratings.




These two “sizzle reels” surely showcase the “Frank Miller-esque, hardcore 70s thriller” direction sources claim Joe Carnahan pitched to Fox, which he says “everyone flipped for.” What do you think?

Definitly different

Interesting. Clearly he was going for a very dark, Taxi Driver (he even used some footage/dialog) feel. That is the vibe I always got from those early Miller DD comics after all, so yeah, I could see that.

DAMN! Awesome stuff.

Don't like, Drew Goddard (Cabin in the woods) has outright stated he wants his spin on DD. He would be my guy on this personally

Music gave me a Tarantino-vibe, which isn't bad at all. Glad they didn't rush these. Disney are clearly better "parents" to Marvel properties. Today must be huge for DD fans. Now, F4, please.
NerdyGeek - 8/14/2012, 7:17 PM
I love the tone, the style, it's so different! Fantastic
95 - 8/14/2012, 7:18 PM
@Rhinoman I know. I can imagine him pleading his friend Whedon to get him a meeting with the board, asap.
Nick56 - 8/14/2012, 7:19 PM
I like it. Im just hoping we get a dark gritty Batman-esque interpretation of this character and not have it look and feel light-hearted and fun like every Marvel Studios film
thespiderman209 - 8/14/2012, 7:20 PM
@ComicCritic well he did direct the films The A-Team and The Grey........i thought those were some pretty good films, especially the grey
KingEmperor - 8/14/2012, 7:20 PM
I'm glad Marvel got the rights back for DD. And coming from the guy who gave me "Narc", "Smokin' Aces", "The A-Team", and "The Grey"? I'm so down.
TheAbomination - 8/14/2012, 7:23 PM
That... ...actually looked good. Let's see if Marvel/Disney keep this guy on the payroll to direct this film.
IgnurRant - 8/14/2012, 7:23 PM
WTF !!!!

That looks fantastic. The 70s tone is marvelous. Superfly theme!? Yes. more please.

This guy gets Dare Devil

@ComicCritic For a director to show/pitch his approach to a film (such as tone) in front of executives/investors for approval/greenlight.
Lego - 8/14/2012, 7:24 PM
Awesome. I hope Marvel lets Mr. Carnahan do this vision instead of some cartoony crap they are known for.
95 - 8/14/2012, 7:29 PM
Also interesting to note the choice to make a 1970s-piece. Which follows suit with X-Men: First Class. So... the question is: will Josh Trank's Fantastic Four be a 1960s-Space-Race-piece?
Asterisk - 8/14/2012, 7:29 PM
Dude! That trailer alone was better than THE AVENGERS!


LET HIM DO IT, MARVEL!!!
Wingding - 8/14/2012, 7:31 PM
That was a lot different then I was thinking. Pretty cool. I'd need to see the movie itself to judge it. But wait,...that's not gonna happen. Lol. Marvel FTW.
ComixBookGuy - 8/14/2012, 7:40 PM
It should of been titled Daredevil: The Rise of the Kingpin.
Asterisk - 8/14/2012, 7:40 PM
I just really dig the Tarantino feel to it. And it'd just be a change of pace
SageMode - 8/14/2012, 7:43 PM
Um, no
Bane2099 - 8/14/2012, 7:44 PM
So the movie would've taken place in the 70's?
IgnurRant - 8/14/2012, 7:50 PM
LOL @ people who are so blinded by their fanboy-ism that they cant see a good pitch.
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 8/14/2012, 7:50 PM
I liked it. Very gritty like I always pictured Daredevil. Besides wtf is Marvel going to do with Daredevil in their universe? Hells Kitchen doesn't exist anymore. It's full of uptown lofts and Trumps new tower. I personally would love to see a DD film take place in the 70's.
IgnurRant - 8/14/2012, 7:51 PM
I like the voice over from Untouchables.

Kingpin = morpdern age Al Capone
LAXtremest - 8/14/2012, 7:51 PM
Not feeling it
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 8/14/2012, 7:51 PM
Fantastic Four is more suited for the Marvel Cinematic universe. I would do everything in my power to wrestle that franchise away and not Daredevil.
IgnurRant - 8/14/2012, 7:53 PM
RDFB

You can taste the Frank Miller vibe. The 70s tone works well.

Plus who didnt flip out a smile hearing Superfly theme and seeing a clip from the Warriors.
nailbiter111 - 8/14/2012, 7:53 PM
i know carnahan is a very good director but that was one of the worst sizzle reels i've ever seen. incoherent is the only way to describe it. thank goodness marvel gets DD back.
CPBuff22 - 8/14/2012, 7:54 PM
No period super hero films thanks. If I want that I will watch Watchmen or Spirit.
GodzillaKart - 8/14/2012, 7:55 PM
Yup. That was the guy.

Word of wisdom: Tap this guy, Marvel.

He could make you a great DD movie for 50 million easy.
longbowhunter - 8/14/2012, 7:56 PM
At its core Daredevil is a crime comic. It works better that way. This is the take I'd like to see with DD. Not so much superheroics.
InfiniteMonkey - 8/14/2012, 7:56 PM
Looks like shit. He should just make up his own vigilante and not use DareDevil. He'd be better off with this shit he's doing.

This does not fit Marvel's bit at all.
Minotauro - 8/14/2012, 7:57 PM
@Intruder - Continue to die. ;)

Anything with Daredevil involved with any phases by Marvel will be a failure. He's a stand alone character. That's the bottom line.

Good pitch, I like the idea better than some action oriented comedy cartoon(like most of marvels movies in the past).
OdinsBeard - 8/14/2012, 7:57 PM
Only gripe I have is it should be modern day. Same soundtrack tho.
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 8/14/2012, 7:58 PM
First Class was better than every Marvel movie save for The Avengers. ;-).
marvelstudios - 8/14/2012, 8:00 PM
I dont like it. Thank God its back where it belongs. Now hopefully FF comes back.
Minotauro - 8/14/2012, 8:01 PM
@RFBD - It is. But Marvelites don't see that.
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 8/14/2012, 8:01 PM
Actually now that I think about it, Fox could have their own mini little universe if they wanted. Just have everything take place in the 60's and 70's. I wouldn't mind a Fantastic Four movie that takes place in that decade either. It would be like the retro universe.

(Yes I know this will never happen, so please don't respond saying as such. It's just a pipe dream, nothing more).
myparentsaredead - 8/14/2012, 8:03 PM
This would've been great. I hope Marvel keeps him.
