Marvel's big mistake...(re:Theatrical movies)..
I was reading an article in USA Today about Marvel's New Avengers. And the guy from Marvel said they will probably never do an Avengers movie because different studios own the rights to the various characters. And in Daredevil the reporter works for the NY Post instead of the Daily Bugle, because a different studio had the rights because of Spidey.
My point is that Marvel should have thought ahead when licensing out their properties to various studios. Even if they can't have a Daredevil/Spidey movie. They should have written a clause allowing the use of background places, characters and even mentioning of hero/villian names in different movies. It can only help each other studios.
Is it that important, when you really think about it? Would DD have been so much better if Urich worked for The Bugle?
It's better to have them owned by different companies. I wouldn't want a movie where the DD joins forces with Spider-Man, because the end result would be more focus on one side (probably Spider-Man) than the other.
It gives them their own role and since they're the only one standing as a hero they can shine all they want.
Well... one thing is for sure, they all live in New York.... except the Hulk I think.
