For the record, I think this is a dumb deal for Marvel. It is better to let the rights revert so they can fully own the Dardevil film rights once again.

FOX letting Marvel borrow Galactus and SS, but not FF doesn't work. You can't have a movie with Galactus and SS without the FF. It would be best for Disney to wait it out until the FF rights fully revert.
I knew Galactus and Silver Surfer long before I learned of the FF connection. I think if they go really cosmic that Galactus and SS work fine. If they want some story with connections to Earth then I'd agree with you.

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 don't know if I'd like to see Blade in the Marvel Cinema Universe. I love the movies (didn't care for the tv show) and would happily see a sequel or reboot, with or without Wesley Snipes (but ideally without Sticky Fingaz).

Now, I'm not familiar with the comics blade, so I'm maybe not the best person to judge. But I thought that David Goyer did a great job in setting up a universe where vampires were the big bad and where characters like Blade were the exception, not the norm. Vamps had infiltrated society and positions of power. I think it would be a big retcon to suddenly reveal that in the MCU vampires were pulling the strings and wielding power when Captain America was fighting Hydra or Howard Stark designing for the Expo.

Obviously, it's open to them to revamp (pun shamelessly intended) Blade in a different fashion from how Goyer did it and make him more compatible with the MCU. But I just don't know if every Marvel character needs to be brought into that cinematic universe.

Re: David Slade Will Direct Daredevil for Fox

Marvel revamped Blade during the Curse of the Mutants story last year along with their vampires in general , he has a new look that I have speculated was done for potentially returning him to the movies. This is why I'd create the Marvel Knights sub-division. Introduce Blade again (or even continue on from three if they wanted to) and establish the vampires as a force (as they were in the Marvel Universe somewhat) (Jubilee is a vampire currently) and slowly incorporate him into the MCU if you wanted to. It's an option available. I'm not sure how they would do it. I'm eager for another "Blade" film though

Re: David Slade Will Direct Daredevil for Fox

^Yeah, it'd definitely be good to see that badass on the big screen again.

I wonder if Morbius would make an appearance, either in a MCU movie or a standalone Blade movie or is he Sony and Spider-man's property now?

Re: David Slade Will Direct Daredevil for Fox

I believe Michael is a Sony property since Rami expressed interest in using him in the second trilogy as a potential villain.

You think so? I always thought for Phase 3 that they'd be going mystical. Mephisto makes more sense as the villain of Avengers 3 than the Kingpin or the Maggia.

Joe Carnahan's DD pitch to Fox! Goddamn, Marvel's got to sign Joe to do their DD!

Why did Fox say no to this? This was awesome.

Because they're the dipshits who greenlit Electra and hired Tim Story to direct The Fantastic Four.

Re: David Slade Will Direct Daredevil for Fox

I've always been curious as to what Sean Astin's pitch was. He is the person who Tim Story beat out to direct "Fantastic Four". I have a feeling Sean was more in tune with what fans were expecting from a FF movie.

I know it's just a sizzle reel, but I can't say I'm sorry to see Fox lose DD. I didn't dig it.

If Marvel regains the rights then maybe Joss Whedon can use DD in the Marvel TV show.
