Recently, many of the rights for those Marvel heroes have lapsed and returned to Marvel Studios, like the Punisher and Daredevil. Now, according to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, two more names can now be added to the list of returned rights.
See the full story below;
Entertainment Weekly recently interviewed Feige, Here’s what he had to say about the returning hero rights:
Whenever a character comes back to us, it’s usually because the other studios don’t want to make the movies anymore – and that usually means the [previous] movies may not have been particularly well-received.
They all have potential, but we’re not going to say ‘We got it back – make it.’
It’s good to hear that they aren’t ready to make more movies for these heroes so soon as time needs to be put into knowing what to do with them and when. We could see cameos from them or maybe even a Midnight Sons movie in the near future.
There’s a market for these films though, and Disney won’t let valuable properties lay around gathering dust and doing nothing. Sooner or later those characters will be used, even if it’s just to resell the rights to another studio willing to make movies with those characters.
And stay tuned!
