COULD KEVIN SMITH AND JOE QUESADA RETURN TO DAREDEVIL?
"Probably not", would be our guess, given that this whole story comes out of some idle Twitter chatter between the two about a possible sequel to their acclaimed Guardian Devil storyline from the late nineties.
What Kevin Smith actually said was:
"Part of me is just like, 'Never touch the character again,' A miracle happened, and your name is attached to that miracle, so don't ruin the miracle by going 'Let me tell you another Daredevil story!' 'Oh that one's terrible!'"
Which, call us crazy, doesn't seem like the "teasing a return" that some of the more click-baity news sites have been trumpeting. That said, he also said that he'd return to the character "in a heartbeat" if Quesada was involved.
For his part, Quesada said:
"It's got to be the right moment, the right story, and we have to have the time to do it."
Again, whenever a creator uses phrasing like that I tend to read it as "I'm not saying never, but probably not."
Kevin Smith did suggest that the pair could do a one-shot to help boost comic sales in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, which as a retailer I have to say would be welcome. I guess we shall see when Marvel goes back into production.
