Hi, Bryan Here….

On October 10th, the ‘Daredevil’ right will revert back to Marvel from 20th Century Fox.  So it’s in Fox’s best interest to start production on a ‘Daredevil’ reboot.  Marvel has been discussing this project with Fox chairman Tom Rothman about keeping the ‘Daredevil’ story with Fox past its October 10th deadline, because it looks like Fox is lining up director Joe Carnahan to direct the reboot.

Joe Carnahan directed ‘Smoking Aces’, the remake of ‘The A-Team’, ‘The Grey’, and ‘Narc’.  According to Variety, this new version of ‘Daredevil would be more of  the “Frank Miller-esque, hardcore 70s thriller” take on blind Hell’s Kitchen superhero Matt Murdock — a vision that would deviate from Disney/Marvel’s family-friendly tone.

Carnahan does not have a deal made yet, but we hear he is the top choice.

One of the points of this deal with ‘Daredevil’ staying with Fox would be that Fox would have to give the rights to the ‘Fantastic Four’ universe to Marvel, which includes the big bad villain Galactus.  You remember Galactus.  Marvel also would receive ‘The Silver Surfer’ in that ‘Fantastic Four’ Universe, which Marvel  is eyeing to plant as a film.  As of right now, the ball is in Fox’s court.

It is in everyone’s best interest for this deal to go down.  Marvel will make a far better ‘Fantastic Four’ film than Fox did, and it makes sense with the Galactus character to go to Marvel, since Marvel is prepping him to be a key figure in future super-hero films.  And if Fox sticks with Carnahan and at least a PG-13 rating with ‘Daredevil’, I think they will have a successful  and quality film.  However, it sounds like this version of ‘Daredevil’ will be rated ‘R’.

  1. I find it disheartening that a comic book website thinks that was Galactus at the end of the Avengers. It was Thanos

  2. How the fuck do you confuse Galactus for Thanos? ON A FUCKING COMIC BOOK WEBSITE. That’s the equivalent of saying “You know Superman, he’s was a member of the X-men with all the blue fur.”

    Go ahead and register Dipshitcomics.com, then kill yourself.

  3. Are you high? Thanos was in the end credits of The Avengers. Galactus was in the crapparama known as Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. How do you work for a comic’s website and make a mistake like that?

  4. Umm… Not to be the correcto-police. But Thanos is in the end sequence in the Avengers, not Galactus. Jesus, get your head straight.

  5. Wow. One little mistake and out of mind experience and everyone is up in arms. AWESOME. Looks like they fixed the mistake.

  6. hey morons, they meant galactus at the end of the fantastic four the silver surfer movie….

  7. Hey, did anyone say that it was Thanos and not Galactus at the end of Avengers yet?

    Also, the deal’s not for the entire Fantastic Four universe, just for Galactus and the Surfer.

  8. If Marvel doesn’t take this deal and Fox can’t prove active production on the Daredevil movie by October 10, Marvel gets Daredevil. I’ve also heard that if they can’t get a Fantastic Four movie in theaters with in about the next 18 months they revert back to Marvel. So why should Marvel take this deal? All they have to do is wait.

  9. I imagine they want to pump out the film faster as Marvel is looking to make Galactus and the other characters vital parts in their upcoming films. Waiting for 18 months would push back tons of films more than a year.

  10. They didn’t say it was Galactus in Avengers. Current news has Galactus as possibly being the baddie in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie or the next Avengers flick. Read. It is good for you.
