Wait, are the rights to Daredevil about to revert back to Marvel after all?

08.07.2012

Daredevil question marks

Well this is cute.

Just yesteday we reported about a possible deal set to go down between Fox and Disney/Marvel concerning the rights to Galactus and Silver Surfer being exchanged in favor of Fox keeping Daredevil so that Joe Carnahan (THE GREY) could have enough time to properly develop his take on the character.

"Not so fast," says Fox. Considering how Josh Trank (CHRONICLE) is currently on board and actively developing FANTASTIC FOUR, Fox is much more interested these days in that property bearing fruit than DAREDEVIL and would rather lose the rights to that character than those of two potential characters for future FANTASTIC FOUR movies.

The report intimates that the true talks going on between Fox and Disney/Marvel concern Marvel co-financing DAREDEVIL, thereby giving over a certain amount of creative control without outright passing the rights back. What say you to that possibility? Is there the chance Disney/Marvel will play ball, and what might it mean if they do?

Extra Tidbit: Maybe Marvel might still let Joe Carnahan do his thing if the rights DID revert back.

Fox has some amazing films under it's belt, but if you look deeper - it was only when they handed it over to a good director and crew. Fox should only be writing checks. I'd like to see a new FF4 or DD but Fox is going to mess them up again if they get too close.

I wonder if Disney wants Galactus as a villain for a certain huge Marvel movie...

Who cares about Daredevil?

Seriously, who cares about Daredevil? A blind lawyer who can sonar stuff? There are dozens and dozens of better Marvel characters.. Even Black Panther, who is lame, is 100 times better than Daredevil..

That deal always looked like a bad idea

You don't replace a potential franchise (Daredevil) with support characters you could only use in other franchises, and you don't separate Galactus and Silver Surfer from the Fantastic Four.

Why do people think Marvel can only do family friendly stuff? Was I the only one watching Captain America where people were getting vaporized. I'm all for them getting the rights to characters like Punisher and Daredevil.

They need to pony up the money to buy back all their characters from Fox and Sony and be done with it, bring them back to the fold.

I suppose all the moolah The Avengers made at the box office (and the tons more sure to be gleaned from home video sales) would go a long way towards that "buy back our characters" fund!

Who cares

It's too soon to reboot both of these properties- look at even Spidey- nobody cared about it. In 4 years when they reboot Batman it will have the same stigma attached- people are fed up with reboots- they want continuous movies like Bond or Harry Potter, not a new origin every 3 movies.
Focus on the Avengers for now, Marvel.

It really pisses me off that 20th Century Fox were trying to rush out a Daredevil movie just to keep the rights. More than anything I want Marvel to have Daredevil back. I'd much rather they have Daredevil back than a few random Fantastic Four characters, mostly because, now Marvel have the Punisher rights back, I'd love to see a darker Marvel continuity that involves Punisher and Daredevil. Stick them in the same universe as The Avengers movies, but don't have them interact with those lighter

Stick them in the same universe as The Avengers movies, but don't have them interact with those lighter characters. Keep them to the shadows in their own grit-tacular violent back alley world. It would make for a fantastic antithesis of the fun and bright Avengers movies, and with Marvel at the helm there's a high chance we'd get a great representation of Punisher and Daredevil on-screen instead of the mediocre ones we've had in the past.

I'd be glad to see Daredevil goes back to Marvel. Then there can be an awesome movie of him that would do justice.
