Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

I'm not sure whether Kingpin and Ben Urich would be considered DD or Spider-Man characters, though. And Sony has the Spidey rights. For that matter, isn't Silvermane originally a Spidey character?

Granted, both Kingpin and Urich were in the DD movie, but now that Fox's rights to DD have lapsed, things could've changed. Maybe some rights went to Marvel while the rights to the "joint" SM/DD characters stayed with Sony. I dunno, maybe that's unlikely, but I'm reluctant to assume anything.

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

Yeah, we discussed this a few pages ago. If Daredevil had been Sony (i.e., the same studio owned both Daredevil and Spider Man), there'd be a good argument that the character could have been a Spider Man property. However, since it wasn't, it doesn't really make sense for Kingpin's rights not to follow Daredevil's. I would be shocked if Marvel can't use him.

No, it doesn't make sense, but we're talking about contracts and money, so there's no guarantee that things would make sense. I think there's a good chance that Marvel has the rights to those characters, but I hesitate to take it for granted.

If Kingpin was a Sony license, then Kingpin would have appeared in the Sony Spectacular Spider-man cartoon. Instead, they had "The Big Man" who turned out to be Tombstone.

I thought cartoons were handled differently than live action. Although, if it's a Sony cartoon, I guess not?

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

But Kingpin did appear in the earlier CG-animated Spider-Man series -- voiced by Michael Clark Duncan, no less. So the rights did evidently change between then and Spectacular.

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

Maybe Kingpin rights exist in a weird neither world. Isn't Quicksilver appearing in both the Avengers AND the upcoming X-men movies? I know that was a rumor--I think the Avengers one has been confirmed though. Quicksilver started in the Avengers, but, he's a mutant... so who holds the license to him? Both companies?

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

I believe they sorted that out a while ago, something like:

Marvel can use Quicksilver but can't call him a mutant or use anything that links him to x-characters.

Fox can use him, but most of his important stories and history are off limits.

Drew Goddard to write Daredevil series

http://www.superherohype.com/news/ar...redevil-series

Drew Goddard is getting ready to tackle the Man Without Fear. TheWrap reports that the Cabin in the Woods helmer is in talks to write Marvel Studios and Netflix's upcoming "Daredevil" series, one of several shows that will build to a crossover miniseries, "The Defenders."

Other planned series include "Jessica Jones," "Iron Fist" and "Luke Cage," with the epic unfolding over multiple years of original programming, taking Netflix members deep into the gritty world of heroes and villains of Hell's Kitchen, New York. Netflix has committed to a minimum of four, thirteen episodes series and the culminating mini-series event that reimagines a dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.

Goddard has had a long connection with Marvel's The Avengers director Joss Whedon. In addition to working together on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Angel," the pair collaborated on the screenplay to Cabin in the Woods. Goddard's other credits include writing work on World War Z, Cloverfield and Bad Robot's "Alias" and "LOST."

I wonder if they'll actually film here. It would be neat to see some filming.

Goddard's involvement is a good sign, but I kinda hope Mark Waid can be involved in Daredevil as a creative consultant or something.

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

While mainly talking about Quicksilver, Kevin Feige mentions that there are a "handful" of characters that occupy the multi-studio "gray area". Kingpin could be one of them.
