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"...
Ah, yes....because Deadline reported it and you don't like what they had to say, there must be "no evidence." Sorry, but I'll take Deadline's word over the inner workings of Hollywood over yours, since that's their actual, you know, business.

Fox is prepared to see the rights to that character revert back to Marvel Studios, and fall under the Disney umbrella. Marvel essentially said no to an extension and to Fox’s request that it come aboard as cofinancier of the Daredevil film.”


...They move like slick cotton on oil.
