Encore Eyes Daredevil
Marvel's popular comic book character DAREDEVIL will soon come to life on next generation console systems. Interactive entertainment publisher Encore, Inc. has signed an exclusive, five-year, worldwide agreement with Marvel Enterprises, Inc. to publish action-adventure games based on the blind superhero. The game's release will coincide with the December 2002 premiere of the feature film DAREDEVIL starring Ben Affleck. The software publishing rights granted by Marvel include the character Elektra who will have a supporting role in the videogame, but don't count out the idea of the little lady getting her own game. Marvel recently launched an Elektra comic series, and the high-profile feature film role was just snagged by Golden Globe-winner and ALIAS star Jennifer Garner.
