    So as we all should know, Marvel Studios will be getting their rights to Daredevil in October. I know that The Punisher is also in their hands now and Blade as well. What I am thinking is that maybe now is the time to put focus on something other than just the Avengers. Marvel has a whole slew of characters waiting to be thrown into the movies whether it's the first time or not.
    If you think about, Marvel Cinematic Universe could have something going on at a completely different time than when all of this Avengers stuff is going on. You've got Daredevil which includes Elektra, Kingpin, and all of the villains. You've got Punisher, Moon Knight, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Blade. We could have a completely grittier shared cinematic universe here.
    Personally, I would like to see each character's film done in a little more comic book fashion in theme with all of the Avengers movies, but they could still maintain their gritty feel. I would also like to see Daredevil being hunted down by the Punisher or something.
    But yeah, elaborate on what you all think and please let me know when Marvel Studios gets the rights to Ghost Rider back.

      To answer your questions, Marvel already has the rights back to ghost rider as well, but to my knowledge, there's no immediate plans to reboot him or blade anytime soon.  And given the fact that feige himself said that he wants his mcu to be family friendly, it's highly unlikely we'll see a blade, punisher or ghost rider film any time soon due to the graphic nature of their stories. 

      However, i do know that Feige has announced that daredevil would be getting his own netflix tv series along with power man, spider-woman and iron fist i think.  Apparently, they'll still coexist in the mcu, but they'll be fighting crime on a smaller scale on a team called the defedors.  personally, i think it's a smart move on their part, and i think punisher should have a show on netflix if you ask me.  i mean the character had 3 r rated films, and they all bombed at the box office.  therefore, i think tv would be a better choice for punisher.  given the fact he has no super powers, you can easily make a tv series on him with a modest budget. 

      as far as ghost rider and blade go, i would love to see a midnight sons type of crossover in the mcu, but as i said before, it's never going to happen because ghost rider and blade are too dark for the mcu's family friendly superhero films, so it's doubtful marvel would want to make an r rated superhero movie; which is exactly what ghost rider and blade would need to be if you wanted to portray them right on the big screen.

    The Daredevil and Elektra films already made were... bad, very bad.

      But you do realize the rights to reboot those have reverted back to Marvel Studios...they can totally be fixed.

    I guess that would be nice.  But constant reboots kind of annoy me.  Another Spiderman already? It makes me not want to commit to following something if they plan to erase it in a few years.

      You should check out my hub on reboots...I feel I make a great point on why they can be necessary sometimes...in the case of Daredevil...I think it's necessary...btw....The Amazing Spider-Man was great since they finally got it right. I don't want to follow a broken series.

    I absolutely want to see the rights in Marvel's hands. I would love them to be able to focus on their street-level heroes and I think Daredevil would be the perfect movie to showcase them in, heck, I wrote a Hub about that!
    I would be cool to have a more down-to-earth team of heroes now that Marvel is traveling deeper into space. Maybe something like the Warriors arch from Ultimate Spider-Man, only without Spider-Man.
    It's will be interesting to see what happens.

      Yeah, I love the Ultimate series, but I was also thinking about that Daredevil story arc that was showcased a couple months ago: Shadowland. Honestly, if I was to be in charge of Daredevil. I would have it to where the Kingpin (James Gandolfini in a fat-suit) would hire three individuals to try and kill Daredevil (Bradley Cooper). The three individuals would be Bullseye (Karl Urban), Elektra (Olivia Wilde), and the Punisher (Thomas Jane). Each would obviously fail, but it would set up a split off movie for both Elektra and The Punisher. I think Bullseye would be the only one that tries to the end, I think Elektra would stop since she ends up having feelings for him, and I think the Punisher would stop and then try and kill the Kingpin since he would find out that the Kingpin was going to have all three assassins killed when the job was done. The Punisher wouldn't get to kill Kingpin as Daredevil would stop him. Just my thoughts for the movie. What do you think?

        I think the Punisher would be a great choice for a Daredevil movie. He would be much better used as a guest star character than have his own movie.

    Sounds good, but the Punisher isn't a hired assassin. The Daredevil movie definitely needs a reboot. The Blade movies were awesome, but need to be redone Marvel style.  I salivate just thinking of a Moon Knight or Cage and Iron Fist movie. I can't wait for Marvel to get the X-Men rights. The X-Men movies were mostly great, but they need to be in the Marvel U. But the movie that needs to happen the most: Darkhawk. Like, now.

      Yeah you are right about the Punisher, but maybe he could be in there for his own purposes...if someone really sat down and thought it out it could work....or save him for part 2.

        In the Punishers first appearance, he was tricked into thinking spiderman was a killer. That could work with Daredevil easily. And technicly Elektra didnt become an assassin until she died and came back.

          lol I am guestimating on all of this, by now you can probably tell I'm not a deep reader of Daredevil or his history...but I love what I have read. I don't care what they do...in the end....I just want these character featured...maybe even White Tiger at some point smile

    Marvel Knights series of short films maybe?

    1. ScottLoogan profile image76
      ScottLooganposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Thats a good idea. Would prefer full length though.

        Yeah I think the fans deserve more than just short films. The material is there for full length films. I don't think we shoul settle for any less.

    Why the hell haven't they done an easy one like "Power Man and Iron Fist"?   It would be brilliant!

      I agree...Power Man played by Terry Crews! Right? Right? lol

    While we're on the subject...maybe someone could explain why Marvel is doing " Guardians of the Galaxy" as a major film?

    1. Stevennix2001 profile image84
      Stevennix2001posted 3 years ago in reply to this

      I think the main reason why they're introducing the guardians of the galaxy is to give a little bit more back story and exposure to thanos, as I highly doubt his small end credit cameo in avengers was there for no reason.  If  anything, i predict he'll end up being the main baddie in avengers 3, and guardians of the galaxy is marvel's way of bridging for that to happen.  After all, they don't own the rights to silver surfer, so they need to figure out how to connect thanos to the avengers somehow.

    Eric Mikolsposted 5 years ago

    The simple reason is because it's awesome.
    It's also risky but I'm hoping it will pay off. I think Guardians of the Galaxy has the chance to be an incredibly unique superhero movie because there's literally nothing like it. Green Lantern could have tapped the space-hero role, but failed miserably. With Guardians, Marvel has a chance to do something that looks nothing like the X-Men, Spider-Man, Batman or Superman.

    I am seriously shocked to see that this is still on here and that people are still commenting on it. This was my old account that I used when I posted this question. Nice to see that people are still finding it relevant. lol

    I agree. Marvel has a pantheon of great characters that all need their fair share of attention in the box office.

    I think it'd be great to see She-Hulk get her own Netflix original as well as the Punisher. Both of them deserve it for sure.
