Fox to Lose Daredevil Rights

With Marvel superheroes more popular than ever, it's hard to imagine any studio would let one slip away ... and yet stealthy Daredevil just escaped from the 20th Century Fox lot. Variety reports that with barters off the table, Fox has been unable to set up an active Daredevil project that can shoot before October, when a rights deadline is triggered; consequently, the character rights revert to Marvel Studios itself, which is set up at Disney. Just in case the Avengers need a new playmate.
