Silver Surfer and Galactus Movie Rights Coming Back to Marvel Studios?

Fox's bungled handling of the Daredevil reboot may result in two well-known characters returning to the welcoming, mousey bosom of Disney and Marvel Studios.



Source: Newsarama

In an article on Newsarama titled "Christopher Reeve is a Big Fat Jerk," the journalistic web stalwarts report that Fox, who has only a few months left to begin production on a Daredevil movie before the rights return to Marvel Studios, wants to trade the rights to Silver Surfer and Galactus to Marvel in exchange for an extension.

The characters are part of the Fantastic Four franchise, which Fox also holds the movie rights for, and which is also due for a reboot, but Fox isn't worried. "We're starting the franchise off fresh, so we'll just do the whole Doctor Doom story again, and by the time we make another, we'll just reboot it again. We could keep making the same movie for the next twenty years, like Pixar, without ever needing to add new characters," said Jamie Foxx, president of Fox. "If we do end up needing a Galactus type character, we'll just create a completely different fart cloud monster, like Warner Bros. did for the Green Lantern movie."

The Surfer and Galactus could certainly be useful to Marvel, who is making a Guardians of the Galaxy film in 2014 to which it might possibly want to add characters people have heard of. However, Marvel could just as easily call Fox's bluff, waiting for the incompetent company to drop the ball on more directors until the rights to all their franchises are returned in full.

As of now, the story should be considered a rumor, and should not be taken seriously until reported at Bleeding Cool.

That newsarama article is making quite a jump in calling the marvel studios movies "family friendly". I just rewatched Cap on netflix and that's a movie full of guns that explode people.

I'd so very happy if all the Marvel Hero film/tv rights were with the Marvel Studios. I want the film universe to grow and be just like the comics one.
Spidey, Ben Grimm, Dr Strange, Daredevil and Hawkeye all meet up at the Avengers HQ for the weekly poker night needs to be done!

It's also a crime that a great FF movie has yet to be made.

I re-watched it last night, yeah it's not what I'd call a family flick. It's as family flick as a James Bond one. Same with Thor or the Iron Man films.. Incredible Hulk..

I'd rather Marvel get the rights back to DD more than Galactus and Silver Surfer.

I really wish want the rights to the FF and Daredevil to returned to Marvel sooner than later as Fox will just fuck things up again like they usually do.
