Fox, Marvel talk swap as clock ticks on 'Daredevil' - Entertainment News, EXCLUSIVE, Media - Variety
Joe Carnahan is the possible choice for directing Daredevil. David Slade who was originally attached to direct it can't do it as he is busy with the Hannibal series.
Here is the more interesting bit.
"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, world-devouring supervillain Galactus, rumored to play a key role in future Marvel pics. Marvel is also eyeing future use of the Silver Surfer, who in the comicbooks brokered a deal to serve as Galactus' herald in order to save his home planet."
