Marvel's Kevin Feige Drops More Than a Hint About 'The Punisher' And 'Daredevil'

“We’re trying to figure out what to do with Daredevil now,” explains Feige, adding that “Punisher could show up at one point.”

The Punisher is one of Marvel’s darker characters. He is Frank Castle: an ex-cop and soldier-turned-ruthless vigilante. Like Batman, he doesn’t have any super-powers but, but does have access to a wide range of heavy artillery.

He's appeared on the big screen three times: in the 1989 movie starring Dolph Lundgren, the 2004 movie starring Thomas Jane, and in 2008's Punisher: War Zone with Ray Stevenson.

“You know, once we get characters back into the Marvel fold we don’t want to do something right away,” continues Feige. “We want to do the smart thing at the smart time.”

20th Century Fox attempted to buy the rights to Daredevil by putting another movie into production. At the time, it was the A-Team and The Grey director Joe Carnahan attached to direct, but when the project failed, the rights to the character ultimately reverted back to Marvel.

Feige – now talking about himself and his future in the industry, revealed that his Marvel contract should keep pretty busy for the foreseeable future. “I think it’ll be a while [before I leave],” reveals Feige. “At least through the next phase or so.”

Thor: The Dark World, which Feige has produced on, enjoys its premiere tonight, October 22nd in London.
