This spring, Marvel Studios re-acquired the rights to several of its comic book properties such as Daredevil, The Punisher, Ghost Rider and Blade. Producer and Marvel executive Kevin Feige was recently asked about the status of Daredevil and The Punisher...And it seems Marvel is in no rush to make either movie. At least at the moment.
"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."
From his latest comments, it seems The Punisher may be further along in development than Daredevil. He revealed in May that both movies may be possible inclusions in Marvel Phase Three, although that entire slate hasn't been locked down yet. Phase Three kicks off in 2015 with Edgar Wright's Ant-Man.
