Marvel Just Got The Rights to ‘Daredevil’ Back


If Marvel’s movie dominance has proven anything, it’s the difficulty that other studios have had in handling their material. Despite billions that have been made on the back of the superhero film movement, several outings (most notably from Fox) have proven to be terrible for fans of the comic books (and of good movies). Daredevil is just one example, and for those wishing desperately that Marvel would be able to get their hands back on the character for future projects, good news just crested the horizon.

According to Collider, Marvel head Kevin Feige announced that his company has the rights to Daredevil back after Fox failed to get a new production off the ground. We recently got some yellow-spandex covered details on that failed attempt, but even though that sounded potentially fantastic, it’s great to see the character back home where he belongs. This means that Marvel not only has the power to create their own stand-alone Daredevil movie, they can also use the character within the rest of the giant movie universe they’ve created.

So who’s looking forward to the post-credits sequence when Nick Fury visits the offices of a bright young lawyer from Hell’s Kitchen because S.H.I.E.L.D. is looking for new talent?
