Daredevil Movie Rights Probably Going Back to Marvel

Will they or won't they?! Maybe. Probably. We guess.

Last week, the internet exploded with giddiness when a possible deal was announced that would see Fox, who owns the movie rights to both Daredevil and the Fantastic Four, hand over the rights to Galactus and the Silver Surfer to Marvel Studios in exchange for an extension on the Daredevil rights, which are scheduled to revert to Marvel if Fox cannot start producing a Daredevil movie by October. Now, it looks like Fox is simply going to let the rights to Daredevil return expire.

Fox doesn't want to give up the rights to the Surfer and Galactus, as those two characters helped make Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer into a monstrous success, grossing an amazing two million dollars more than its budget in domestic markets. As for getting a Daredevil movie off the ground by October, Joe Carnahan, who was the likely director of the project, seems to think that it's unlikely.

"If only we could have seen this coming," said an anonymous Fox excutive, who should have seen this coming. "If only there was some kind of contract that specified a date by which we needed to start production on a Daredevil movie, we might have been able to keep the rights. This took us totally by surprise, and we, a movie studio, were totally unprepared to make a movie so quickly."

This news is very pleasing to fanboys, who would like to see Daredevil enter Marvel Studios' cinematic universe along with The Avengers and their related properties, and who will also never forgive Fox for Wolverine Origins, regarded by many as the worst comic book movie since Batman and Robin. The Outhouse will keep you updated on this situation as more opportunities to write articles that attract unique hits based on searches for keywords like Daredevil and Marvel Movie-verse arise.
