With all the talk of Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe now under way, we are starting to look at which characters will join the fray next.  An Ant-Man movie is just days away from casting announcements, and Thor: The Dark World is knocking at our door. Bleeding Cool.com was “cool” enough to ask Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige about Daredevil and the Punisher. Feige had this to say:
“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”.

It really is the a tough trick for the Marvel Studios now. Where does the Punisher and Daredevil fit in the this new Cinematic Universe they have established. With the Avengers core of characters they each have a place on the team, as well as their own respective stories. Daredevil has always stood alone. The Punisher first appeared in “Amazing Spider-Man” and built his own story that really doesn’t involve the world of superheroes. Each have had their own films and neither was the success that Marvel hoped it would be.

I think at this stage in the game, Marvel and Disney are better at going after characters like Doctor Strange and Ms. Marvel. Sound off below Maniacs!
