About 2 weeks ago at an Iron Man 3 press conference, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige confirmed that the Daredevil movie rights had returned to Marvel. Now, so have Ghost Rider, Blade and The Punisher‘s reportedly.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that we can expect a new film in these series any time soon, as Feige stated;
There comes a time in contracts where, if a studio is done making the movies, [the characters] come home. That doesn’t mean we’re going to make another movie. But it means they’re back in the fold, which is where we want them to be.
All it means is that the former film rights had expired and so, legally, Marvel have reattained them. But there’s always hope, and you’d have to imagine with the massive success of The Avengers that these great characters could be integrated into Phase 4, or maybe even Phase 3 of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe.
