Comic Book Reboots: Sheena & Daredevil

Once one of the best-known action screenwriters in Hollywood, Steven E. De Souza (Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle Of Life) is planning to readapt Sheena: Queen Of The Jungle, the other well-known comic book created by the legendary Will Eisner (The Spirit), and thinks Jessica Alba (The Love Guru) would be a perfect fit for the role. Pretty much a female Tarzan, Sheena was already brought to the big screen in 1984 and also had several shows based on her adventures.

Also, 20th Century-Fox co-chairman Tom Rothman gave a little more insight into the planned Daredevil reboot. However, he seems to dislike calling it a reboot, so could it actually be a sequel? If so, hurray!

A Daredevil, to use your words, reboot, is something we are thinking very seriously about. I think that the thing the Hulk showed although, it did what it did, is that it is possible, that if you really do it right the audience will give you a second chance. That it is possible. And I think that you see that when they did Batman Begins, the first Nolan movie, that you can have made some mistakes along the way or movies that the audience wasn’t that crazy about and then given the proper amount of time and the right creative vision behind it, you can, to use your word, reboot. It needs a visionary at the level that Chris Nolan was. It needs someone, it needs a director, honestly, who has a genuine vision. What we wouldn’t do is just do it for the sake of doing it. Right? What we try to do is to get a creative engine for it, that really had a great vision for it, that’s what we would look for.

If they’re going the route of The Incredible Hulk, where it goes in a new direction but can still be considered a sequel to the first movie, then hell yeah, I’m all for it.
