Marvel Confirms It Has Rights to Kingpin and Elektra for "Daredevil" TV Series

Posted: April 18th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Marvel Confirms It Has Rights to Kingpin and Elektra for "Daredevil" TV SeriesSubmit Comment
Marvel recently got back the rights to Daredevil. But instead of moving forward with a movie, the studio teamed with Netflix to create a new TV series. But which characters, outside of Daredevil, can Marvel use?

"The Amazing Spider-Man" producer recently said that Kingpin was a potential character that the Spider-Man franchise can use. But according to Marvel head Kevin Feige, "we either have [Kingpin] or someone share."

This situation is similar to agreement Marvel has with Fox for Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, which will appear both in "Avengers: Age of Ultron" and "X-Men: Days of Future Past."

Feige also commented on the rights of Namor and Elektra, stating: "No, Namor I think is a little complicated, the way some of them are. Elektra I think we have. I think that was part of Daredevil, and that's clean and simple."

The "Daredevil" series is set to premiere in 2015.

Namor was originally a Timely Comics character like Captain America and the rights are somewhat complicated.

So basically Marvel combining Two flop movies and re-packaged it as a tv show? Not a wise move.

Just imagine the big meetings that take place with all these legal teams together in one room; uber-serious men and women in suits, carrying expensive briefcases ...debating who gets "Devilman" or "Spidy Guy" or "King Nay...Nah-mor Man" or "the silver guy who runs fast" etc.

I thought Namor was owned by Fox under the Fantastic Four umbrella. He is also an X Man now, so they could do that... Wasn't he at some point an Avenger too?
