The Twilight Saga: Eclipse helmer David Slade is to direct a sequel to the superhero movie Daredevil.

The original, directed by Mark Steven Johnson, saw Ben Affleck playing the title role of a blind vigilante lawyer who tackles crime in disguise.

Variety reports that 20th Century Fox wants to develop the character in the sequel and potentially a franchise.

According to the site, Fox have been working on the project since 2003 in a bid to stop rights for the superhero character reverting back to Marvel and its owners Disney.

Slade was initially to direct the standalone film 'Wolverine' before Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky became attached to it.
