Ugh, I really don’t want to report this rumor. I’d rather go back to enjoying my Shamrock Shake and pair of slàinte boobs that are two green beers away from being groped. However, there is always time for some good trolling. Which, I assume today’s rumor is merely aiming to do.
A few days ago, we told you that David Slade (Hard Candy, 30 Days of Night, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) was going to direct a new Daredevil movie. With that news unleashed, comes the casting game. It’s been reported that none of the stars from Ben Affleck‘s ‘Daredevil’ would reprise their roles; and thank god for that. So what names are being tossed around like $5 Taiwanese hooker? Just who will be the new “man with out fear”? Fortunately for Twilight fans, but unfortunately for the rest of us, Robert Pattinson is apparently a person of interest for the blind man in red. Ya know, ’cause of his past work with Slade.
The West Hollywood Resnorter over at Moviehole reports (and this is only a rumor, so please, take it with the usual grain of salt) that:
And yes, with David Slade given the job, there’s “some kind of talk” about Robert Pattinson — who, with the Twilight series winding up, is going to be looking for a new well-paying gig — playing the part of Matt Murdock – – -which, I have to say, I don’t dislike the idea of (I think he has some chops under that pale exterior, and definitely has the right ‘look’).
Pattinson is a good looking, popular guy, but I don’t want Pattinson in my Daredevil and I don’t want Daredevil in my Pattinson. Daredevil can’t see us, but if Pattinson gets this role then nobody will see him! Least we need yet another brit takin’ the role of a American super hero. A thousand times NO!
For gods sake, if they want to take this reboot seriously then at least cast someone in the right 30-35 age bracket. My vote goes to Mark Valley who plays Christopher Chance from Human Target. Or, maybe that guy from the Sex in the City movie Jason Lewis. Both have that rugged, mature, charismatic thing going on. Both totally have the Matt Murdock swagger.
Ya know, better yet. Instead of a Daredevil reboot just turn it into a television drama series. The Law and Order fans would love it!
Robert Pattison as Daredevil is just a rumor. Something to get everyone’s panties or underoos in a bunch It will probably never happen. But, what if it did? Are you ok with that? Who else would you like to see as Daredevil?
