UPDATE: Did David Slade Reveal The Title Of His Daredevil Reboot?

This may be nothing at all, but a recent Tweet by the director may have given us some idea as to what he may be calling his in development Daredevil reboot..

While giving IMDB a bit of telling off for posting false information(never!), director David Slade may have revealed his title for his upcoming Daredevil flick when he tweeted..



Dear IMDB. Keep up! Directed Ep 403 of Breaking Bad, Demeter is not in pre production, just talks. THE DAREDEVIL is in script development.


Before this the director offered up a small update as to the movie's progress..

Daredevil is being written only by Brad Kane. He and I are currently accelerating through the plot and character stage.


THE Daredevil? It doesn't sound likely I admit, but then whey use it here? Maybe it's just a mis-tweet and he meant to say "the Daredevil script" or something. But if it isn't, how would you feel about this title? I can't recall, but has Matt Murdock's fearless alter ego ever been referred to as The Daredevil in much the same way as Batman has been called The Batman? We know that the script will be adapted from Frank Miller's " Born Again" comic arc, so that could well be the title, although it's actually rare that a movie keeps the exact title from a comic story it's influenced by. Anyway, I have asked Slade about it and he is generally pretty responsive so lets see what he says.

UPDATE: Well, not too unsurprisingly this will not be the title. David Slade just Tweeted..

DAREDEVIL movie has no working title so far I mis-capitalised "THE". Assume it will use the name Daredevil in some way, suggestions?

It's the sort of title that would lend itself to an origin story - or at least it does to me.

Not sure why - maybe because others and the press would refer to him as such??

JUST DON'T MESS IT UP...PLEASE.

I am sick of origin stories. Lets just dive in to a kickass story and use flash backs for the origin.
nordberg - 6/22/2011, 6:30 AM
"Daredevil: Born Again" would be nice but it's probably too religious for the focus groups.
Urban8er - 6/22/2011, 6:32 AM
NOOoO!!!! WHY?!!? STUPID STUPID STUPID!!!!! FOX needed to let daredevil go!!! So MARVEL could get the rights back!!!

'Rise of the daredevil who lives on a planet and rises'. Totally agree with Nephillim. it's such a corny,crap word to use. People need to stop adding yeast to movie titles.
marvel72 - 6/22/2011, 6:34 AM
why call it the daredevil? why not just call it daredevil born again.

can you imagine a real DD origin story? .. lol.. he would be in a yellow costume.
larusso - 6/22/2011, 6:40 AM
they should at least do a none linear origin story. Spread it out throughout the movie.
Nexus6 - 6/22/2011, 6:41 AM
any more info on the casting? or is it still very much just in the development stage? i haven't been keeping track. the director's cut of the last 1 was ok, bit of a guilty pleasure!
EditNinja - 6/22/2011, 6:42 AM

Dare Devil: Rises ..... ROFLOL
SpideyQuad - 6/22/2011, 6:48 AM
I hope they respect the cannon this time, because I love the character.
SpideyQuad - 6/22/2011, 6:50 AM
It should be "I triple dog daredevil you!"
RorMachine - 6/22/2011, 6:51 AM
Honestly, I'm leaning towards thinking this is just a mis-tweet or whatever. Even if it was the title I doubt he would be revealing it so soon and in that manner. Still, there is a chance..just never know with these things.
CorndogBurglar - 6/22/2011, 7:07 AM
how about Daredevil: The Man Without Fear?

i mean, thats the obvious choice, but what do i know?
CorndogBurglar - 6/22/2011, 7:07 AM
Also, the Born Again story had the Avengers in it, so i'm kinda miffed that they won't be in it...

dare goes the devil?
ComradeGrey - 6/22/2011, 7:14 AM
Man Without Fear
Ryguy88 - 6/22/2011, 7:19 AM
Is this supposed to be an origin or are they accepting the origin from the original movie and moving on from there like the Incredible Hulk did?
SageMode - 6/22/2011, 7:24 AM
The Daredevil:? Are you serious? First, The Wolverine, now this? Lazy ass people i swear.

It should be MAN WITHOUT FEAR

IMDB is one of the most unreliable sources ever. Smdh
Spidex3000 - 6/22/2011, 7:27 AM
Yea, I think it would be cool if it were just called Born Again or Man Without Fear.
chuckg313 - 6/22/2011, 7:28 AM
I love dare devil hope i dont have to sit through another bad movie Nomis the directors cut was better..i actually made my own edit based on that directors cut kept it a bit darker its pretty good
Bartman87 - 6/22/2011, 7:37 AM
I'm thinking mis-tweet guy in a rush trying to get info out and put too many words out there, not sure why all the hate on him probably because of his Twilight roots but Hard Candy and 30 Days of Night were good movies. I hope they just stick with a origin in flashbacks.
ThaMessenger07 - 6/22/2011, 7:40 AM
It should be an Origin Story based on The Man Without Fear GN and it should be titiled "The Man Without Fear" for F*CK SAKES!!!

Stop shitting on another great character! The Batman series by Nolan and by Burton have been good. I'm even very whatever, over the Shitmaker ones.

But they shat on Wolverine! And they Shat on Daredevil, though I believe the Directors cut was a better film. Which is still no excuse.

This movie could be the Best CBM of all time. Hell! The best CBM franchise of all time and one of the best films of all time! It would shit on Batman Begins, TDK, Iron-Man, TDKR, Avenger, etc......

Make it happen! Please!!!!
DarthTesla - 6/22/2011, 7:55 AM
Man Without Fear, or Hell's Kitchen or something would be better than THE Daredevil.

It makes it sound like it's a totally different character, like The Escapist or something, or The Batman.

Doesnt work with Matt. It's like The Thor, or The Mr. Fantastic.

Daredevil: We promise No Elektra
Teois42 - 6/22/2011, 8:15 AM
it honestly SHOULD be The Man Without Fear....
plasticman - 6/22/2011, 8:17 AM
The Daredevil is better than Daredevil Rises.
nordberg - 6/22/2011, 8:22 AM
Daredevil: The Squeakquel
DarthTesla - 6/22/2011, 8:26 AM
@Gambit: thats true, but they would be great secondary titles, Daredevil: Hell's Kitchen or Daredevil: MWOF.

Besides the title, I just hope they get the damn script right. They can leave in Elektra, they just have to portray her correctly, not as some annoying dance-fight sequence.

We just need a really dark, gritty, noir DD. Like how the Blade movies were darker and more mature, why can't we bring that back? Those movies were awesome (Blade 3 was kinda bad), and successful.
ibravosp5 - 6/22/2011, 8:41 AM
@JarJarBinks your right, the origin should just be in flashbacks and not be the whole movie, we want action
AlexDeLarge87 - 6/22/2011, 8:57 AM
The Man Without Fear is perfect!
Bandrews1 - 6/22/2011, 9:03 AM
@AlexDelarge I agree.
