What are you talking about? Are you referring to that leaked "deal" that was proposed to allow Fox to keep Daredevil in exchange for cosmic characters to revert back to Marvel? That deal that never happened and that there is almost no evidence for ever occurring aside from an article that cites no specific sources?
How did Fox benefit by letting Daredevil return to Marvel? They already had the FF rights until 2015. There was nothing changing that. All they had to do was make a Daredevil move (even a ****** one) and they renewed their rights to Daredevil for another 6 or 7 years.
Please explain to me how letting a contract expire for a property you paid money to acquire and could own indefinitely by making a movie every 7 years is a "calculated move"...
