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.
