In the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, members of Daredevil's principal cast and crew discuss the process behind making the upcoming Twentieth Century Fox film as well as star Ben Affleck's personal life.

The article discusses a number of anecdotes surrounding the making of the film from a costume controversy to the chances of a Spider-Man/Daredevil crossover. Director Mark Steven Johnson discusses the development of the Daredevil costume, "For a while, there was no costume at all, just a sweatshirt, hood and sunglasses...More of hip-hop, extreme-athletetype. Those were the dark days."

Michael Clark Duncan, signed to play Daredevil's nemesis Kingpin, discusses his fantasy future project, "In the comic books, you know, Spider-Man and Daredevil have been at it...I'm telling you, Tobey Maguire and Ben Affleck in the same movie, that would be a big movie." Affleck already understood the legal complications, "The thing that's f--ed up. actually, is that Marvel sold the properties to different studios. Spider-Man is the property of Sony, and Daredevil is the property of Fox and Regency. They're stuck in separate universes."
