MARVEL STUDIOS to trade DAREDEVIL for GALACTUS and SILVER SURFER?

Big news today guys, according to Variety, Marvel Studios and Twentieth Century Fox might be working on a potential movie-related trade.

Here’s a bit of the report from Variety:

Fox is in discussions with Joe Carnahan to direct what’s been described as a “Frank Miller-esque, hardcore 70s thriller” take on [Daredevil]. Sources say Marvel would give Fox more time to make Daredevil in return for the rights to use characters from the Fantastic Four universe, including the giant, supervillain Galactus, and future use of Silver Surfer.

I’m going to let my little fanboy dreams run wild with this little rampant rant of speculation.  Is it possible that will be seeing a pseudo Annihilation type movie in the future?  Could this be the direction of the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase Two?  Let’s look at the facts, Thanos is introduced at the end of the Avengers, there’s a Guardians of the Galaxy movie coming and recently that movie got a new screen writer (we reported on that here).  Add that to today’s news and this all could be building towards an intergalactic showdown of epic proportions!

So there you have it Mavel fans, but what do you guys think about this?  Is this an overall a smart move or could this be a big mistake?  Sound off with your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below.
