New Details On The DAREDEVIL Netflix Series Coming In 2015
Marvel unveiled some new details about their Daredevil series that was part of their giant new deal with Netflix. As you know by now, Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage are getting their own shows culminating in a Defenders crossover. It was reported a few months ago that Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods) was the showrunner for Daredevil, but now Marvel has confirmed that and added a few details.
Marvel has been breaking their TV and movie news themselves, though it’s usually picked up by the Hollywood trades months in advance. Now they’re rolling out the Goddard on Daredevil news. Marvel.Com just posted:
Marvel.com brought you the first news of the historic team-up between Marvel Television and Netflix, and now we’re proud to officially announce that award-winning writer/director Drew Goddard (“Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” “Lost,” “Cloverfield,” “Cabin in the Woods,” “World War Z”) will join Marvel’s “Daredevil”! Goddard will write and direct the “Daredevil” first episode, setting the tone and look for the show, while also serving as series Showrunner and Executive Producer for the 13-episode series premiering on Netflix in 2015.
So Goddard will write and direct the first episode of the new series. We knew he would probably write an episode or two, but the directing part is new. It is also confirmed that the show will consist of 13 episodes premiering at an undisclosed date in 2015. We can expect the other series to be spread out throughout 2015 and 2016 but clocking in at 13 episodes as well. Now that all the formalities are out of the way, hopefully we can hear a few details about what Goddard has planned for the show. We’re all excited to see Daredevil on the small screen, but now we have to star making our wishlists of villains and storylines. What do you think about Daredevil getting 13 thirty minute to an hour long episodes? Are you glad Goddard is writing and directing episode #1?
