    Next movie Marvel: Daredevil

    By Andy Seiler, USA TODAY



    Ben Affleck has the title role in Daredevil




    As Spider-Man continues to spin a web of gold at the box office, Ben Affleck has stepped into the costume of the next Manhattan-based Marvel Comics superhero to hit the big screen: Daredevil, the man who can neither see nor fear.

    "The struggle with the costume is staying faithful to the comic and at the same time not making it look ridiculous," says director Mark Steven Johnson, now shooting the film for 2003 release. "We knew we weren't going to do red tights." The filmmakers went with a sculpted leather bodysuit hybrid, combining a partially form-fitting costume (like Spider-Man) with the molded look of Batman.

    And fans will be taking notes.

    "Daredevil is not as well known as Spider-Man, but his fans are devout," Johnson says. Created by Stan Lee and Bill Everett, the character was reworked by Frank Miller in the 1980s and more recently by Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back creator Kevin Smith. "He has always been my favorite superhero since I was a kid," Johnson says. "He was literally the one I would go wait for at the drugstore in Hastings, Minn., when they would get the shipments in."

    Daredevil's daytime alter ego is lawyer Matt Murdock, who becomes a vigilante by night. Though he lacks sight, his other senses are hyper-acute. "He'll know if you have a gun in your pocket because he can smell the gunpowder," Johnson says. "He knows if you're lying because he hears your heartbeat. And while Spider-Man is more of a wish fulfillment — gee, what would it be like to be a superhero? — ours is more about the repercussions. Unlike Batman, Daredevil doesn't go back to his Batcave. He goes back to his apartment in Hell's Kitchen and pops pain pills."

    Daredevil will battle two villains in the movie: wealthy businessman and mob godfather Kingpin (The Green Mile's Michael Clarke Duncan) and the assassin Bullseye (Colin Farrell of Hart's War), whose deadly, forceful aim turns pencils, paper clips and anything he can get his hands on into fatal weapons.

    And he also will have to dodge Elektra (Alias' Jennifer Garner), another vigilante who tries to kill Daredevil by night but dates Matt Murdock by day.

    I'm still not big on Ben Affleck ruining yet another movie......

    I thought he blew in Pearl Harbor. Most of that movie was pretty hokie though come to think about it. I think he could play DareDevil pretty stiff and still get away with it.

    I wish there was more of a "close-up" view of this picture. It looks like his head is too big for his body!

    Affleck's under bite annoys the hell out of me. Plus he's a dork.

    I've been vomiting the past few hours in response to the whole Affleck / Daredevil pretense. The costume, the casting, the motivation behind the film early on...

    It's bound to fail already. Just like "the Hulk". Too bad because with Spidey, X2 and the Matrix 2 on the not so distant horizon, Marvel could REALLY have made some serious cash. (note: I'm aware the Matrix isn't Marvel property. )

    It sounds good to me! I just wonder what the fight scenes will be like. Daredevil is great at martial arts. Ben Affleck isn't much of a fighter I don't think.
