‘Daredevil’ Could Have Gotten a New Movie, if Joss Whedon Had His Way

Netflix Daredevil
Marvel / Netflix

Once Marvel acquired the rights to Daredevil, it was unclear just what the studio was planning on doing with the character, whose last on-screen iteration didn’t work out so great. The solution: a partnership with Netflix for a new series, which — along with a handful of others — will lead into the epic Defenders series. With the help of Drew Goddard and Steven DeKnight, Daredevil has been a big success for both Marvel and Netflix, but there was one person who would have rather seen the crime-fighting hero back on the big screen.

‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ PR: Now with Slut-Shaming and Rape Jokes!

Marvel
Marvel

By now, it's the "slut" heard 'round the geek world: during their press tour for Avengers: Age of Ultron, actors Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans referred to Black Widow respectively as a "slut" and a "whore." They've since apologized - well, Evans apologized, Renner offered something else. Plus, a new clip from the movie reveals a rape joke - something proud feminist Joss Whedon should know better than doing. But is the fuss about these things worthwhile?

Well, yes. Words have meaning. And the words chosen by Renner, Evans, and Whedon in these situations happen to be words that demean women. When Black Widow is routinely left off of Age of Ultron merchandise, the fact that major players in the movie chose these words is extra uncomfortable.

The ScreenCrush ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Review: Joss Whedon Assembles an Inspiring Blockbuster

Avengers 2 review
Marvel

There’s a lot to like about Avengers: Age of Ultron, but the coolest thing about it is the way it reclaims the comic book part of the phrase “comic-book movie.” Rather than using these characters to do something “edgy” or “adult” or “important,” or sanding down their quirkier edges to appeal to as broad and mainstream an audience as possible, Age of Ultron doubles down on its source material’s geeky origins.

From Kitty to Kamala: The Journey That Turned Ms Marvel into This Generation’s Hero

kitty-kamala

Kamala Khan is a superstar now. Introduced only a year ago by Marvel, she’s become a bona fide figurehead for the publisher. A young Muslim girl in America who develops powers and uses them to try and help people, her story has caught on with a mainstream audience and turned the Ms Marvel series into a real, actual hit, especially among the growing digital readership.

What’s fascinating about the character, though, is how clearly she’s embedded into the tradition of superhero comics, and how you can draw a direct line from her back through Marvel’s history, to some of the company's most popular female superheroes. Kamala broke through at just the right moment in time, in just the right way, for the readership to embrace her, but she owes a debt to several characters that came before her.
