Clearly Fox cared more about FF than they did Daredevil. If they didn't then they probably would've given the rights back to Marvel when they asked for them. It's clear DD doesn't fit into their plan for their universe. Even if it wasn't a calculated maneuver it still told Marvel that they wanted to keep the rights to FF. Fox isn't going to let the rights to FF slip through their hands because FF fits into their plan.
And people keep saying how Millar is all talk because no one has spoken to him yet but Millar explained that in the interview yesterday. He's been busy with Kick-Ass 2. I'm sure this took up most of his time so he couldn't talk to everyone as much. I mean look at actors who are sent scripts for their movies and don't have time to read them until the day of shooting. It's clear now that he's done with KA2 he's going to be available for all of Fox's Marvel movies now.
According to "sources," Marvel never asked Fox to "give them back the rights" to FF. The proposed deal was that Fox would allow Marvel to use only Galactus and the Silver Surfer in its films, not the FF. Marvel would not have even gotten the complete rights to the two characters back, only limited usage in films, similar to the deal Fox worked out with Sony for use of the Kingpin in Daredevil
