Marvel's Kevin Feige - "We're Trying To Figure Out What To Do With Daredevil Now"

daredevil-reboot-20110316005425170-3415435_640wKevin Feige and I are obviously best buddies now, having had a good chat on Friday and plenty of follow up questions today.

Put the kettle on, Kevin. I’ll be round.

Today’s chat, about Thor: The Dark World and other Marvel Studios business, is going to yield a lot of reading for you in the days and weeks to come, with Feige offering a lot of insight his unique vantage point on the House of Big Screen Ideas. I was constantly fascinated by his comments on just how they get their business done at Marvel Studios and what the thinking was behind some of their notable choices.

You’ll have to wait a little while for that, I’m afraid but for a quick, upfront tease, however, here’s just a fragment, something that Feige said this afternoon and which just leaped out at me. I had asked a question about Thor, this turned into talk about comedy and then about how some Marvel characters would require a movie with a different, darker tone.

Here’s a drop of Feige.

We’re trying to figure out what to do with Daredevil now. 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.

I think he may have said something interesting about Daredevil on Friday, too. Stay tuned for my full report on that conversation, and soon.

And be sure to get your comic book shop to reserve the next issue of Bleeding Cool Magazine for you if you want even more from Feige, director Alan Taylor and the stars of The Dark World, because that’s where my big, final report is headed.

Thor: The Dark World opens in the UK and on global IMAX screens on October 30th, then across the US on “normal screens” come November 8th.
