    Fantastic Four and Daredevil may show up in Dis. / Marvel Universe movies

    This is interesting. If Fox doesn't make new Fantastic Four or Daredevil movies soon, the rights may revert back to Disney, which would open up the possibility of all kinds of crossovers.

    http://furiousfanboys.com/2012/07/fox-could-lose-daredevil-and-fantastic-four-to-marvel-studios/


    Random thoughts:


    --Considering how poorly received the FF and Daredevil-related movies have been, I actually wouldn't mind the rights lapsing. Maybe the Mouse House will have better ideas.


    --I don't want more reboots. Just tell more stories in that universe, even if it involves different actors.


    --Crossovers in themselves won't make for good movies. I don't want 8,000 characters in a single movie just because it can be done. The story still needs to be right.


    --The article also notes that the rights to the Punisher have reverted to Disney. Personally, after so many failed solo movies, I think the Punisher would be a good antagonist in someone else's movie, as opposed to trying to be the hero of his own. Remember, he first appeared in a Spider-Man comic.

    Im not sure about fantastic four but i do know that they are currently working on a daredevil movie, what stage its in is anyones guess.

    But i highly doubt that any studio is going to let their marvel rights expire.

    Marvel= money right now

    Punisher, in my opinion doesn't fit in the Marvel Cinematic Universe much. He is a more mature character that Marvel can only do justice on its own. I think the best fit for Punisher would be an 18+, mature tv series separate from the rest Marvel Universe. Punisher's look and style fits with the average budget a tv series has. It would be a perfect fit. Unlike the planned Hulk tv series which i am really doubtful about.
    Now about Fantastic Four it was announced recently that Josh Trank who made Chronicles was gonna direct the reboot. I think FF rights will probably stay with fox for the near future. And as for Daredevil, although it is in a much closer position for Marvel to get the rights back, i think they will rush it into production in any possible way so that they can keep the rights. But we will see. There is always the possibility of those projects falling apart for various reasons

    Kinda sick of Marvel's current full on movies only direction, they even introduced a black eye patched "son of Nick Fury" character in the mainline 616 comics universe just to draw in more moviegoers; I agree that they need all the readers they can get but perhaps this isn't the best way to go about it.

    Anyhow, I agree that both the FF and DD would be much better off under Marvel Studios, but recent announcements at Comic-Con make the rights reversal very unlikely - screenwriters and directors are being actively sought after by Fox.

    Either way both properties are in dire need of a big screen reboot IMO

    I would love to see Christopher Nolan tackle the Daredevil and Punisher franchises. Both are real world character, with real world villains, just like Batman. Punisher is definitely a dark character, and while Daredevil can be family friendly, he can also be a little dark. This is probably never going to happen though. I doubt Nolan wants to become the guy who reboots comic book movies, even if the final products are awesome.

    Disney doesn't dabble in Marvel movie territory much.
    Most likely Quesada's own team will revive them, as they did with Thor, Cap, Stark, etc...

    I think his involvement now with the resurrection of the Superman franchise after the Batman Trilogy will be more than enough comic book characters for him for the foreseeable future

    Wasn't aware that he was involved with the new Superman franchise. Not a huge Superman fan, have only seen the Christopher Reeve franchise.

    He is the Producer of Man of Steel and co-writing the story as well

    Elektra resurrected from the dead, and a terrorist group with alien-based technology can hardly be called 'real world'...
