I mean that "Daredevil" had a deadline set as was reported that Fox had to meet before the rights reverted back to Marvel Studios. Remember the so-called trade talks? All that nonsense? Joe Carnahan's last ditch effort to pitch a film. All of that was before the deadline (which I believe was October last year). I'm saying that I don't believe that "Fantastic Four" has such a deadline imposed right now. Or at least if there is one...no one has reported one like with "Daredevil".
Yea, I would imagine it has one, it's just not close enough to being missed for it to be bandied about. (IE: No reason to mention it, if things are on target for getting a movie out before it hits, or if it's more than 3 years away)
They likely all have it written into their contract that "If X number of years go by without a movie being made, Rights revert back"
