Just when you think the drama of the Daredevil reboot couldn’t get any more…well, dramatic, we get a bit of interesting news that could indicate the future of the potential Joe Carnahan-directed reboot of Daredevil. Last week, Thorverine reported that Marvel and Fox were in discussions for a character swap of sorts. While it was never confirmed, the deal would allow Fox more time to get their Daredevil film in production in exchange for the character rights for Galactus and Silver Surfer, both of whom play a big part in the Fantastic Four universe, a property that is also being rebooted at Fox. This deal, if true, puts Fox between a rock and a hard place.

But that all may be for naught as Joe Carnahan has taken to Twitter tonight dropping some interesting news that doesn’t sound very good for Fox or Carnahan.

So what does this mean? Not really sure, but if I had a hunch, Fox may be giving up on the idea. Carnahan later tweeted “We shall see. Time is NOT on anyone’s side.” Fox’s contract states that if a film is not in production by October 10th of 2012, the rights revert back to Marvel and with just under two months to go, things don’t look good. This news only furthers that notion. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as this story unfolds, as I suspect it will do so rather quickly.
