Man-Thing movie rights details.

How did Man-Thing end up at Lionsgate?


Lionsgate produced a film back in 2005 that went direct to TV, which was shown on the SciFi (SYFY) Channel.



So if this is following the ten-year contract pattern that was identied with other characters, by 2015 this would default back to Marvel Studios. But then you have to be careful, as sometimes a studio may have the movie rights to a character or franchise, while Marvel retains TV and animation rights.

Man-Thing or a related character has been mentioned twice now in a Marvel property. In 'Iron Man 3', Ellen Brandt is the character injected with the Extremis Virus. Ellen Brandt is the ex-wife of Dr. Ted Sallis, otherwise known as Man-Thing. Then 'Man-Thing' is mentioned on the SHIELD TV show. So it was assumed all of the rights had returned to Marvel.



If Marvel is looking to have a horror production division, I think Man-Thing would make a lot of sense as one of the characters. TBD if it has all of the rights back to the character.

Marvel was even unsure at the time of the Daredevil rights recovery. If it is a ten-year rights contract, and the last Elektra movie was 2005, then 2015 would lead to her returning back to Marvel.

Wow! I thought this mess was behind them.

Companies continue battle for Marvel superheroes

----------------
Stan Lee Media, which is no longer affiliated with comic book writer Stan Lee, appealed the judge's order. Disney has argued that other courts have already ruled against Stan Lee Media on the same matter.

The appeal is the latest turn in a court battle between the companies that has spanned more than a decade.

Stan Lee Media has sued Marvel and others over the characters' copyrights in at least six cases, all of which have been dismissed, according to court documents. In 2012, it sued Disney in federal court in Denver for the $5.5 billion it said Disney earned from movies and merchandise involving Spider-Man, Iron Man, The Fantastic Four and other characters.

----------------

Even Stan Lee must cringe every time he hears of this company using his name.

Amazing, isn't it? At the time, the potential on the movie rights were just not clear.
