The last superhero movie that was rushed out by a studio just to keep the rights was Ghostrider 2.
The Amazing Spider-Man would like a word with you.
We all know how boring the first hour of that movie turned out to be.

Deadline is now saying that "Fox insiders" are "strenuously denying" that any talks are taking place.

Re: David Slade Will Direct Daredevil for Fox

From article:

Those insiders said that with Josh Trank aboard to direct, Fantastic Four is a big priority and the studio would be crazy to give away a cornerstone villain.
Yeah, they really would be CRAZY to give up Galactus.

For the whole FF reboot thing, I see them having Doctor Doom in a large role in all three movies if they go with a trilogy. The X-men movies did the same thing with Magneto since they were so reluctant in using anyone else. FF will need Doom even more, their villains aren't nearly as popular as the X-men's villains.

Re: David Slade Will Direct Daredevil for Fox

Fox has already locked up "Fantastic Four" with Josh Trank as director. I think this is a big indication already which property is more important to them.

This sounds like a wacky fannish rumor (fueled by heavy doses of wishful thinking) to me.

Re: David Slade Will Direct Daredevil for Fox

What does Greg? The "Daredevil" thing was announced originally during SDCC by Deadline. This is not a rumour. I find it funny that Fox has come out and denied it so quickly. Sounds like them.

Re: David Slade Will Direct Daredevil for Fox

Quick update...looks more and more like "Daredevil" will revert as I believe it will.

As I've been saying for a while now. This can only be good news, because seeing Daredevil join up with The Avengers would be awesome.

Let's just DD back to MS so they can prep him for entry into Phase 3.
He's the character that currently could handle nearly any type of script Batman would. He could be the first "dark" themed MS film.

Re: David Slade Will Direct Daredevil for Fox

I'm fine with Marvel getting Daredevil back, the ship has long since sailed on a sequel to Mark Steven Johnson's movie. That said, I hope Marvel hires Joe Carnahan to direct their reboot. It sounds like he's got a definite vision for it.

^Yeah, even if Carnahan and Fox can't get it together, Marvel would be foolish not to at least listen to his pitch, assuming that the rights do revert to them.

I like his description of his idea as a 70s style Serpico-like thriller. On the face of it, this may not seem like an obvious match for the Marvel-verse. But if it can accommodate the 1940s pulp of Captain America, the Norse grandeur of Thor and the hi-tech vision of Iron Man, surely the Marvel-verse can also have room for a gritty noir-ish superhero?

Absolutely. Just as in the comics.

Re: David Slade Will Direct Daredevil for Fox

I have a feeling phase three will be street level oriented. I'd set up a Marvel Knights sub-division and slowly integrate characters such as Blade, Frank, and Matt into the main stream MCU but not before establishing themselves and their own worlds.

I've been saying that as well, that Phase 3 will be street level.
I mean once you go so cosmic in Avengers 2 with a universe level event not much higher up to go really. Pendulum swing.

Re: David Slade Will Direct Daredevil for Fox

I agree. It only makes the most sense. I'm still wondering when Marvel is going to finally schedule "Doctor Strange" and "Sub-Mariner". I'm still irked that they've no plans for Incredible Hulk 2 either. Seems a shame to sign Ruffalo to a three picture deal only to use him sporadically and for "Avengers 2". I wants me a Hulk sequel!!
