Bleeding Cool recently spoke to Marvel’s Kevin Feige while he was promoting Thor: The Dark World. One of the more interesting tidbits came when Feige decided to talk about other Marvel properties, specifically Daredevil and The Punisher.
”We’re trying to figure out what to do with Daredevil now,” Kevin Feige said. Of course, Marvel gained the rights back to the character last year after Fox’s reboot, which was supposed to be directed by Joe Carnahan, did not move into development on time. Feige also said this: “Punisher could show up at one point. You know, once we get characters back into the Marvel fold we don’t want to do something right away, we want to do the smart thing at the smart time.”
Punisher and Daredevil have already had big screen adaptations with Thomas Jane and Ben Affleck in the title roles, respectively. Considering that Marvel is planning a few shows and a miniseries based on its properties, do you think these new adaptations will live on TV?
I personally love the idea of Marvel revisiting these characters. We’re going to be getting a lot of cosmic storylines in the next few years, so it would be nice to have some properties keeping in grounded more in reality.
