Daredevil Returns To Marvel

Recommended Posts

Following discouraging tweets from potential director Joe Carnahan, recent reports seemingly confirm that Fox is letting go of their Daredevil reboot, allowing the character's rights to revert!

DCMarvelFreshman - 8/14/2012Despite nearly two months remaining before Matt Murdock officially comes home, Deadline is reporting that 20th Century Fox is finally pulling the plug on their Daredevil reboot. Assumed earlier today when Joe Carnahan tweeted that his “retro, red-suited, Serpico-styled superhero” pitch “went up in smoke,” the site claims:


“From what I’m hearing, that means that Fox is prepared to see the rights to that character revert back to Marvel Studios, and fall under the Disney umbrella. Marvel essentially said no to an extension and to Fox’s request that it come aboard as cofinancier of the Daredevil film.”





Guys. To clarify. DD pitch was tremendous and everyone flipped for it. The clock ticked down at Fox, that's why it went tits up.






I will post the piece we did since it should be seen be all now...then you guys decide.

As the site points out, Joe Carnahan could still helm the reboot, but it'd be up to Marvel Studios and Disney. And more than likely, they'll likely want a fresh creative team behind the character's next outing.


When things officially fall through, we can expect Marvel Studios to somehow include The Man Without Fear in their expanding cinematic universe. Whether that is via his own much-needed solo film, a television series, or perhaps a team-up movie is unknown. Although, considering Marvel Studios has a long slate of films already planned, there's no telling when plans for Daredevil will be set in motion. What do you think?

But they could possibly keep Elektra?


Fox Reportedly Gets To Keep The Rights To ELEKTRA

220px-Elektra_teaser.jpgFox, the company that brought you X-Men, Elektra, and 2003s Daredevil, has been working fast to get their once announced Daredevil reboot in production before the movie rights revert back to Marvel Studios, the original owners. However, reports have come in today stating that Fox has given up on the reboot and are simply letting Marvel have the rights back. In almost an aside, Variety reports that despite losing Daredevil, Fox still owns the rights to Elektra.


This is odd because Elektra was the love interest in the 2003 Daredevil film and Fox's 2005 Elektra film (poster seen above) was set in the exact same universe as the Daredevil film, taking place after it's events.


What does Marvel have in store for The Man Without Fear and is this a simple mix-up by Variety or is it indeed true? We'll just have wait and see.



These were his "sizzle reels" for the now cancelled reboot.
