Daredevil Movie Rights Revert To Marvel Studios
Studio exec confirms it has regained big-screen rights to blind superhero...
Marvel Studios has confirmed that it has regained the movie rights to the Daredevil character, after 20th Century Fox failed to make a film based on the property.
Studio boss Kevin Fiege was asked by Newsarama whether recent reports that the rights had reverted to Marvel were true, and responded: "To Daredevil? Yes."
But the movie exec gave no indication whether or not a film is in the pipeline.
20th Century Fox had been attempting to rush through a reboot of the character - but its plans had faltered.
Fox still retains the rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four, while Sony has the rights to Spider-Man and Marvel owns the rest of the Avengers universe.
