Watch: Joe Carnahan Reveals Sizzle Reels For His Discarded ‘Daredevil’

Written by on August 14, 2012 

Following 2003’s Ben Affleck-starring Daredevil, we were on the verge of getting a very different take on the superhero from The Grey and Narc director Joe Carnahan. 20th Century Fox had just a few months before the rights for the property reverted back to Marvel, but unfortunately we got the news tonight that Fox passed on his take and the latter studio will indeed be taking it back. But before it gets completely forgotten, we’ve got a look at what could have been.

In a rare moment peeking behing the curtain of Hollywood, thanks to the power of Twitter and the internet, Carnahan has revealed the two sizzle reels he presented to the studio. The reels reference (and use) many ’70s exploitation films and others like Taxi Driver, American Gangster, The Warriors, Mean Streets, The Untouchables, the original Daredevil and even some comic strips. While this is the most rudimentary look we could have, I like the style Carnahan is going after, but unfortunately it will never see the light of day. Check out both videos below.

Would you have seen Carnahan’s Daredevil? Looking forward to Marvel’s take?
