Daredevil, The Man Without Fear
I was over at WorstPreviews yesterday, and they had an article saying that the meeting between Marvel and Fox execs was over a co-financing deal for a “Daredevil” reboot.
This sounds to me like either deliberate misdirection, or nonsense (though on whose part, I can’t say).
The problem for me is: How can Twentieth Century Fox discuss a co-financing deal about a movie based upon a character, come October 10, they will not have any rights to?
By way of analogy, that’s like me taking out a loan that comes due October 10, and me not only saying that the bank isn’t going to get their money back, but I have a great scheme that–by the graciousness of my heart–will let them in on.
In other words, there can be no “co-financing” deal between Marvel and Fox because it would imply that Fox somehow had the right to make such an arrangement in the first place.
Which also implies that there was more going on at that meeting than we probably know anytime soon.
