Based on the Marvel Comics character created by Stan Lee, "Daredevil" had been tentatively slotted to open Jan. 17 at the start of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday period. But Fox and Marvel Studios CEO Avi Arad believe the February start date offers greater potential to deliver mega-grosses. "The summer is starting earlier and earlier," Arad said. The move comes three weeks after "Spider-Man," also based on a Marvel character, demolished box office records with an eye-popping $114.8 million in its first three days. The 20-day total for the Web slinger topped $295 million on Wednesday. "Audiences have demonstrated a tremendous appetite for comic superheroes in the last couple of years," said 20th Century Fox vice chairman Bob Harper. "We are very excited about unveiling the next big Marvel superhero on the first big holiday of the year." Both winter holiday periods generated solid biz this year, with $151.4 million in the four- day MLK period, led by $33.6 million for "Black Hawk Down," and $163.9 million in the President's Day weekend, topped by Denzel Washington starrer "John Q" with $23.6 million. "Daredevil" toplines Ben Affleck in the title role, a blind lawyer by day and a relentless masked avenger by night, when his other senses operate with superhuman sharpness. Michael Clarke Duncan, Colin Farrell, Jon Favreau and Jennifer Garner co-star. Mark Steven Johnson directed from his own script. Shooting began in late March in Los Angeles, and a studio representative said the date shift was unrelated to potential production delays. Marvel has two more potential blockbusters already set in 2003, with Fox staking out another prime date of May 2 -- a year after the "Spider-Man" opening -- for its "X2" sequel to "X-Men" and Universal slotting "The Hulk" June 20. 5: Coming Soon: AAPZ I will soon be creating AAPZ, the AllAlias.com PuZzle. It will be a fan-created continuation of the game. Stay tuned for details. If you would like to help me with AAPZ, please email me at email@example.com . 6: The Push Throughs There has been much speculation about the push-throughs. J.J. Abarams has said that there is something more to them. The letters are: S A N I I D R R N A G O E S S L O W W D S A A S X I A A U V N V V E S R G G E E W W T E O O G R L E N A O G N G G C C G P A O D A A T That is, if, in the episodes where it shows previous episodes and the places count. If you don’t count the “previously on” push-throughs, then the letters are: S A N I D R N A G O E S L O W D S A S X I A U V N V E S R G G E E W T E O O G R L E N A O G G G C C G P O D A A T With counting all the letters, I went to an anagram site, and it returned over 22,000 results before my computer crashed. I will probably re-anagram the letters later this summer. The following information is purely the work of Secret Agent Fan (http://www.efanguide.com/~alias/puzzle.html ): What you cannot spell from either set of letters: SYDNEY | BRISTOW | JACK | MICHAEL VAUGHN | KHASINAU | KATE JONES | THE (as in "Man") | TIPPIN | SARK | DEREVKO | MARSHALL | MARCUS What you can spell from either set of letters: ARVIN SLOANE | DIXON (the "x" is probably for this) | WILL | LAURA | IRINA | AGENT | CIA 7: Quote of the Week “Will, you're a journalist for God's sake. You get paid to be annoying.” – Jenny (The Box, Part 1) 8: Final Thoughts Life without Alias is tough. So please email me ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) with your fanficion.
