"Daredevil" Director (and Villain) Want to Do a Sequel
From Moviehole: "At the Wizard World Convention Last Week, ?Ghost Rider? helmer Mark Steven Johnson said he?d be keen to not only do a sequel to the Nicolas Cage starrer, but also his earlier superhero effort, ?Daredevil?.
According to Aint it Cool, Johnson said he?d like to do a sequel that uses the ?Born Again? storyline as its template.
"Daredevil: Born Again" is a story arc in Marvel Comics' series. The story details Daredevil's fall to insanity and destitution at the hands of The Kingpin, as well as his subsequent struggle to build a new life for himself. It is considered by many fans to be the definitive Frank Miller written Daredevil story.
Michael Clarke Duncan ... would be keen to return for a sequel. The actor who played the villain Kingpin in the first film said he?s got some great ideas for a follow-up. "I had thought what would be kind of cool that we see him in jail, we see him in prison, we see him...you start from the end of 'Daredevil', before the sirens and Daredevil is gone and you see the Kingpin in shackles you see him going to prison you see him getting locked up and you see his boys sitting there saying 'Well what are you going to do now?' And he just starts to think 'I need to train, I need to get better, I need to get quicker'."
Guys, let it go. There's higher aspirations out there than "Daredevil 2."
