Zack Snyder plans to enter MCU with ‘Daredevil’
Zack Snyder is the man who shaped DCEU from start as a director of the first instalment ‘Man of Steel’ starring Henry Cavill as Superman. Following that, Snyder has been a part of almost all the DCEU movies either as a director, producer, or writer, including ‘Suicide Squad’ (Producer), ‘Wonder Woman’ (Producer & Story) and so on.
Snyder was also initially the director of the original ‘Justice League’, but things went sideways for the movie with Joss Whedon eventually ending up on the director’s chair and reshooting most of the movie. However, the much-awaited Zack Snyder’s version of ‘Justice League’ is on the way.
Keeping that aside, Zack Snyder, despite being a sort of rival of Marvel, has shown interest in taking up one of the projects. This is none other than popular ‘Daredevil’, which is soon to be integrated into MCU, and Zack Snyder might be the man for it.
Snyder reveals his plans for the future of ‘Daredevil’
In a recent interview with “ComicBook”, Zack Snyder was asked what kind of movie he’d like to work upon if in MCU, and the director took no time in replying that he’d love to adopt a classic Frank Miller Daredevil story.
“I would choose Elektra Lives Again” – Zack Snyder reveals his dream ‘Daredevil’ pitch for MCU.
“I would choose Elektra Lives Again. Daredevil is having these dreams about Elektra coming back to life, and it’s really cool and weird … It’s just cool, and beautiful. That’s what I would do. No one cares, but that’s what I would do.”
“Elektra Lives Again“, the graphic novel was created by rank Miller and Lynn Varley in 1990. As “We Got This Covered” explains,
“Elektra Lives Again is a trippy tale concerned with Matt Murdock’s visions of Elektra, featuring some insanely badass ninja fight scenes and generally jaw-dropping artwork”.
‘Daredevil’ got its screen fame from Netflix’s TV series starring Charlie Cox. The show was received with great appreciation from the audience and critics for its style and tone. Fans were enraged when Netflix pulled off the show after 3 seasons.
Following that, Disney-owned Marvel received the rights to ‘Daredevil’ back last year, and this has raised the expectation of ‘Daredevil’s’ revival in the world of MCU. While nothing regarding the future of ‘Daredevil’ in MCU is confirmed, Zack Snyder’s interest in it could be the reason for Marvel to start plotting the project.
