Robert Pattinson As Daredevil Rumors Surface; Said To Be Similar In Tone To Batman Begins!

Robert Pattinson As Daredevil Rumors Surface; Said To Be Similar In Tone To <i>Batman Begins</i>!

Apparently, there's some "talk" that the Twilight actor is being looked at to reteam with David Slade on Daredevil, while new details on the tone and story have also emerged...

"The West Hollywood Resnorter" over at Moviehole has a very interesting piece up about David Slade's planned Daredevil movie (said to be a continuation, rather than a reboot) but two things in particular caught my eye.. The first, is the revelation that the movie will be similar in tone to Batman Begins, while the mention of a bad guy trying to destroy Daredevil certaintly fits in with the rumor that they're thinking of basing it on Frank Miller's "Born Again" series.

Slade’s pitch, I’m told, is said to be a "close cousin" of some of the other superhero movies out there in the market place (I believe he’s referring to films like "Thor" and "Captain America" which are bright, boisterous blockbuster types that skip on the gloom and go straight to the boom!) – which shouldn’t surprise anyone. "It’s a bit Batman Begins. The bad guy will learn who Daredevil really is and tries to destroy him – but not via the usual methods."

Second, was the mention of there being "talk" about Twilight's Robert Pattinson being linked to the role. Seeing as he's worked with Slade before and is rather popular with a certain demographic, it's not hard to believe that he'd be considered (and there is something of a resemblence) but as we're talking about the guy who directed 30 Days Of Night and a character like Matt Murdock, I don't see it happenning!

And yes, with David Slade given the job, there’s "some kind of talk" about Robert Pattinson – who, with the "Twilight" series winding up, is going to be looking for a new well-paying gig – playing the part of Matt Murdock – - -which, I have to say, I don’t dislike the idea of.

What do you guys think about all of this? Be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place, and head on over to the site to read the article in its entirety.
