‘Daredevil’ Rights In Possession Of Marvel Studios, Confirms Kevin Feige

Newsarama reports that Kevin Feige (President of Production at Marvel Studios) has confirmed that the Daredevil rights now belong to Marvel/Disney.

In August, it was reported that the rights to Daredevil would return to Marvel, if Fox (the previous owner) did not put a new film into production by Oct. 10.

At an Iron Man 3 press junket Monday, Newsarama asked Feige whether the rights had returned to Marvel. Feige replied, “To Daredevil? Yes.”

Daredevil was made into a film in 2003 starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner. It was written and directed by Mark Steven Johnson (Simon Birch, Ghost Rider) and received poor reviews.

Jennifer Garner, who played Elektra in Daredevil, went on to star in her own film Elektra (2005), based on the comic book of the same name.

Do you want a new Daredevil film? Who would be the ideal star?

  • Paul

    I think he should pop up as a cameo in Avengers 2 or one of the stand alones but brief like Hawkeye did in Thor.

  • Charles Jackson III

    Daredevil/Punisher (Duality and all ;-)would make a great Marvel Knights series on AMC

    He should appear in lawyer form during Phase 2 defending perhaps Bruce Banner or on behalf of The Hulk.

    Just make a damn movie, already. I have no interest in seeing another “Arrow” type of show.

  • whatsxhisxname

    Ive always loved daredevil. Hes one of the most under-rated marvel superheroes.
    I hope he gets a new movie and has some sort of role in avengers 2. As for someone to play him. It has to be a new face. Andrew garfield i great as spidey and he wasnt a household name before. So i think they should go with a fresh face. Im just excited they’re actually gonna use him!!!

    What would be a perfect re-introduction, in my opinion, is to have him make a very brief cameo in Phase 2 to be recruited for the The Avenger’s team… only so he can tell them no, he doesn’t do “teams.”

    Liam Hemsworth. He’s got what I’d consider the proper build for the film, he’s still pretty much a fresh face (not as exposed as his brother) and he can do action.
