As angry and frustrated I am by this turn of events, it does enlighten us to the fact that these contracts can apparently be renewed by simply paying for the option.

Previously, I believe it was assumed by everyone that the rights would automatically revert if a film wasn't produced in set amount of years. But unfortunately, it's now apparent that these companies can simply throw some cash at Marvel and retain the rights indefinitely...

Phase 1 >>> IM - TIH - IM2 - Thor - CA: TFA - The Avengers
Phase 2 >>> IM3 - Thor: TDW - AoS - Agent Carter - CA: TWS - GotG - Avengers: Age of Ultron
Phase 3 >>> Ant-Man - Daredevil - Jessica Jones - Luke Cage - Iron Fist - The Defenders
