The Marvel Universe is about to get even bigger on the small screen with a new line of series exclusively produced for Netflix featuring Jessica Jones, Power Man and Iron Fist, ending with a unified team, the Defenders. Announced earlier this year, we finally got a glimpse of Daredevil at the NYCC along with some excellent concept art by Marvel CCO Joe Quesada.
With DC Entertainment taking the TV screens by storm with Arrow, Gotham, Flash as well as Constantine, there is definitely an audience for comic book-themed programs. Just… please make this better than Agents of SH.I.E.L.D.
“Marvel’s Daredevil” follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.
Marvel’s first original series on Netflix is Executive Produced by series Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (“Spartacus,” “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer,” “Angel”) and Drew Goddard (“Cabin in the Woods,” “Lost,” “Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” in addition to writing the first two episodes of “Marvel’s Daredevil”), along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Smallville,” “Heroes”).
“Marvel’s Daredevil” is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix
