By now it is likely that you have seen Variety’s report about 20th Century Fox’s intentions to retool and rebuild some of its superhero properties in the wake of a poor showing this past summer at the box office. It is then very likely that you saw where Variety’s report talked about Fox looking at more X-Men spinoffs along the lines of X-Men Origins: Wolverine and X-Men Origins: Magneto. One project that should stir up some interest is a Deadpool standalone project, based on the character played by Ryan Reynolds in next year’s Wolverine.

But probably the most interesting single line of the entire report on Fox’s future was this: “The studio is even considering reviving the Daredevil property.” The last time we saw Daredevil on screen, he was being played by Ben Affleck in Mark Steven Johnson’s 2003 adaptation. And while I personally didn’t think Affleck was a bad choice, and Colin Farrell was a solid choice as Bullseye, the film overall was rather underwhelming. I find it interesting that Fox would be interested in revisiting the character though, as Daredevil isn’t an A-level superhero. As well, I feel like they had their chance, much like Marvel did with Iron Man, to really bring him into the mainstream. But unlike Marvel, they blew it — and the character’s chances, at least this soon, of making it with a reboot would be slim. Then again, that is just my opinion, and this is all about getting your opinions…

So what do you think? Should Fox give Daredevil as second run? Also, which X-Men characters would you like to see get their own spin-off?
