As a Buffy and Angel writing alumnus, The Cabin In The Woods writer/director Drew Goddard was asked by Collider, whether he’d like to follow in the footsteps of Joss Whedon and take on a big superhero movie.

“If we could find the right project, I would love to do it,” enthused Goddard. “You’re talking to a guy who had quotes from Daredevil painted on his walls growing up… Fox has most of the stuff that was on my walls as a kid!

“Conversations always happen, but until anything’s official, who knows? But I’ll definitely put it out there that I love all these characters. I’m a Marvel/DC kid.

“Like everyone else, I love Born Again: that was a seminal work for me. Everything Frank Miller did on Daredevil is like the Bible.”

The Daredevil reboot, also inspired by Born Again, has been in dire straits for a while, with 30 Days Of Night director David Slade leaving the project recently. Perhaps Drew Goddard should step in and lend it the same geek credibility that Whedon brought to Avengers Assemble, and Sam Raimi injected into Spider-Man
