FOX’s Daredevil director, Joe Carnahan, took to Twitter last night to confirm that with no movie in play the film rights to Daredevil have reversed to Marvel Studios.
Yay for Marvel as now DD can show up in the Avengers franchise, and maybe even start a franchise of his own. But Joe had a pretty good take on the character and seems upset that this will not be. To quote from his tweets:
“idea for a certain retro, red-suited, Serpico-styled superhero went up in smoke today kids.”
“DD pitch was tremendous and everyone flipped for it. The clock ticked down at Fox, that’s why it went t*ts up.”
He then posted two teaser videos, which are pretty great as well. Look at what could have happened.
