Marvel Confirms They Have Wrestled Daredevil Away from the Evil Clutches of Fox

Or Fox just decided to let the option for the character slide, having decided it’s no longer worth their time and money to develop, and it’s now gone back to Marvel where it belongs. Either/or.

The point is, Marvel chief Kevin Feige has officially confirmed to the press that the studio has, indeed, taken back all rights to The Man Without Fear. He wouldn’t say, of course, what he or the studio plans to do with the character, though if he would like to give me a call, I have a couple of ideas.

There’s no reason why a “Daredevil” TV show couldn’t work. It could essentially be a New York-set show, with the likes of the Punisher, Blade, and Moon Knight coming and going. Now that Marvel has rights to both Punisher and Blade back as well, there’s absolutely no reason to expand the “SHIELD” TV universe with more superhero characters. Introduce Daredevil, then give him his own show.

Imagine: a show where Daredevil is teaming up with the Punisher (or battling the Punisher, as is usually the case) one week and teaming up with Moon Knight the next. Then a guy shows up hunting vampires, who is also half-vampire. How cool would a show like that be?

Call me, Marvel!

    That is actually a very good synopsis for a show. But i will take it one step further and call it Marvel Knights the tv show!! That way you could literally go back and forth between characters. Do an arc on DD then Punisher, then Moon KNight and then a team up or something.

      Now THAT is a good idea. Hopefully the success of SHIELD on TV will open up all kinds of doors for Marvel.

        Yeah!! Cause this could/would work really well!
        So we ever gonna do that list man? ;-)

          Oh right, the list! Ha. Send me what you have so far.

      As much as I like the idea of a TV series I would love to see a Marvel handled film franchise for The Man Without Fear! Karl Urban would be clutch in the role.

        I can totally see that. I would love a DD film too, but I was thinking you could flesh characters out more in a show. Think Arrow with some Law and Order thrown in. At least for the DD centric episodes. But Urban as Daredevil works perfectly.

      Oh hell yeah. Either Daredevil or Punisher (Moon KNight, too, but he doesn’t have anywhere near the name recognition of the other two) would be ideal to headline a show about the non-mutant, non-sci-fi, non-fantasy Marvel Universe. You could arguably throw in Iron Man, Power Fist, Electra (of course), the Scourge, Black Panther, and the Kingpin (doubly of course)

    Oliver Jackson-Cohen as Daredevil. m/ He is amazing! https://www.facebook.com/OliverJacksonCohenForever?ref=hl

      Oh yeah I liked him in Faster!! If he can ditch his accent he’d definitely work! Still like Urban for though too. Cohen’s character from Fatser was what i thought they may or could’ve done with Merlyn in Arrow.
