Here's a very interesting story from today's Variety:


    The clock is ticking for 20th Century Fox to put its "Daredevil" reboot into production before character rights revert to Marvel -- but Fox and Marvel brass are working out an arrangement that could allow the comicbook franchise to remain at Fox past its Oct. 10 deadline.

    Fox is in discussions with Joe Carnahan to direct what's been described as a "Frank Miller-esque, hardcore 70s thriller" take on blind Hell's Kitchen superhero Matt Murdock -- a vision that would deviate from Disney/Marvel's family-friendly tone. Carnahan has yet to receive an official offer, though multiple sources tell Variety that he's the choice.

    Fox needs to start lensing by Oct. 10 or Marvel gets the Daredevil character back. Fox is said to be high on Carnahan's take, but making that deadline would be nearly impossible; one solution the companies are discussing is a co-financing arrangement.

    But Fox also has something Marvel wants: According to sources close to the project, marvel wants the use of characters from the "Fantastic Four" universe in future Marvel pics, including the giant, world-devouring supervillain Galactus, rumored to play a key role in future Marvel pics, and his messenger the Silver Surfer, who makes a deal in the comicbooks to serve as Galactus' messenger to save his home planet. Fox owns rights to both as part of its deal for "Fantastic Four," which the studio is also rebooting with "Chronicle" helmer Josh Trank. Insiders say Fox wouldn't be willing to part with those characters.

    Talks are expected to resume later this week. Reps from Fox, Marvel and Carnahan would not comment on the dealings.


It would make total sense that Marvel would want Galactus and the Surfer more than they would the FF. Assuming this deal goes down, I'm hoping it means we get Galactus back in time for Guardians of the Galaxy!

I dunno. This sounded weird to me when I heard it earlier, and Deadline Hollywood has already debunked it. (deadline.com)

Also, it makes no sense Marvel would want Galactus and Silver Surfer more than they'd want the Fantastic Four. How can that be? The Fantastic Four were the cornerstones that launched the Marvel Universe in the 1960s. They're crown jewels. Of course Marvel wants them, not just a couple of their ancillary villain characters. They'd want the Fantastic Four under the Marvel Studios umbrella to do the movie correctly.

Galactus would be one of those big threats, that the Avengers could take on. Honestly, Disney is going to get those rights back. If anything, Daredevil along with Kingpin could lead to a very nice Luke Cage and Iron Fist movie as well as Black Widow. FF needs to be done at Disney, The X-Men franchise is the only one I trust in Fox's hands, but you have to figure Jackman acting besides Robert Downey would be epic.

Despite the denials the deal is very much being discussed, but Fox are never, ever going to let another studio use the Fantastic Four. They see them as their best shot at big AVENGERS style superhero money now. The deal is for Galactus and Silver Surfer only, with the view to using them in GOTG & AVENGERS 2.

And calling Galactus and SS "ancillary villain characters" is waaaaay off base. There's nothing ancillary about them, and in SS's case he's been a major hero in his own right.

There's not even a good reason that they need to take away the rights for SS and Galactus from Fox, they just also need the rights to use them.

Sounds extremely easy to sew up.

And, if Fox has already started work on FF, they aren't going to want to give those up either.

Yup. I knew as soon as I wrote it and hit Submit I wasn't gonna get away with that.

Joe Carnahan on Daredevil really intrigues me, if he can get it up and running by October...

Incredibles.

Although technically Pixar made it in 04, and Disney didn't buy Pixar until 06.

Or you could point out that Disney still acted as the distributor for Incredibles.

Joe Carnahan Tweeted last night his take on Daredevil looks like a no-go.






Two months until the Daredevil rights revert back to Marvel. I haven't heard anything more about the supposed swap for Galactus and Silver Surfer.

More from Joe Carnahan as the DD rights seem poised to revert back to Marvel Studios:




Here's the "NC-17" (it isn't) "sizzle reel" of Daredevil he used to pitch to FOX.



I could have dug this Daredevil if it had gotten made. Dyno-mite!

I did like his idea of doing a Miller-inspired Daredevil actually set in the 70's. In a lot of ways, Daredevil never really left the setting of that decade, and I think it would have helped the movie capture some of what people actually like about Daredevil. I also can't see Disney going in this direction, even if they decided they wanted to separate this product out from the Avengers line. In any event, it'll be interesting to see where the property goes from here.

Lends it self real well to a Luke Cage and Iron Fist cameo.

Imagine being Brian Bendis and finding out Marvel can make a Daredevil movie now. He wants a shot at that script, right? Maybe as a producer, at the very least.

If Carnahan's vision lends itself well enough to the Miller-era Daredevil, what's to say Marvel won't eventually pick him up for their own DD movie?

Looking at that trailer, I'd really much rather see DD as a TV show. Put it up against Arrow and let's see these shows duke it out!

That would be cool, but Carnahan is really keen on doing a 1970s period Daredevil a la Serpico. It's more likely Marvel would want Daredevil set in the present day in their shared universe than existing 40 years ago.

I'm very, very for a Daredevil TV show.

OK, so I did devote around 11 hours (90 minute pilot, 90 minute season finale) to this show which everyone tells me is just wonderful, marvelous, must-see television. So why was I as bored as I was?
