Thanks to DareDevilDocumentary for hosting the video!
One of the two great things to come out of the 2003 Daredevil film (well, three if you want to count Ben Affleck eventually marrying Jennifer Garner) was the Daredevil Director’s Cut DVD (which is amazing) and the superb documentary.
They interview – Stan Lee, John Romita, Gene Colan, Frank Miller, John Romita Jr., Joe Quesada, David Mack, Brain Michael Bendis (amazed he doesn’t have a longer segment), and Kevin Smith.
I wish all superhero films eventful DVDs came with a documentary or at least a comic book featurette. If I had my way, there would be an entire industry of Comic Book Documentaries. Sort of like E!’s True Hollywood Story but with comics.
I’ve seen these interviews more than I’ve seen the film itself. I’ve also seen the Director’s Cut more than the film. I sort of feel bad because instead of the six Jennifer Garner / Elektra scenes, we are given extended other scenes or Murdock in court with Coolio.
This was my first time seeing Frank Miller and hearing him speak. I really like how everyone after Miller holds him to such height of respect. He may not have created Daredevil but Frank Miller defnintely put his stamp on the character and it is a shadow that neither will pass.
Thus, we end Frank Miller Month here at S&FwM! One more Event Month (it is barely that) in November and we don’t have another one until February’s annual Lockheed month.
