Marvel Entertainment's Chief Creative Officer and former Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Joe Quesada says that the upcoming Netflix Daredevil series will be written with the knowledge that many people today prefer to ‘binge watch’ (also called ‘Marathon’ watching) their favorite shows, rather than watching them weekly.
We heard not too long ago that Marvel was looking into bringing several other TV series' based on their comic book characters, and today brings some details on them. Marvel has announced an exclusive deal with Netflix to bring four different shows based on Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Jessica Jones to the streaming platform all leading up to a Defenders TV series! Come inside to check out the press release and details!
20th Century Fox owns some of the bigger movie rights to Marvel's characters, many of which fans and Marvel themselves would undoubtedly love to have back. One of the big ones was Daredevil, who's rights were set to return to Marvel. Now, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has confirmed the man without fear has returned to the family.
Fulfilling his promise to his fans, Joe Carnahan has posted the proof of concept sizzle reel he made for his adaptation of Daredevil. Sadly, you'll never get to see this film, but at least you can see what Carnahan was aiming for with this reboot. If this reel is any indication, it would have something pretty great.
Filmmakers never keep their promises. They promise big news and announcements, but never deliver on time. Back in February, J.J Abrams said he would announce if he was returning for Star Trek 2 or not in March. He announced it Monday. Two weeks ago, David Slade claimed on Twitter that some Daredevil news would be revealed last week. The news then broke last night. Man, I need to buy these guys a calendar or something.
Add another drop to the already overflowing bucket, the latest news to grace comic-lovers is the announcement of a director for the upcoming reboot of Marvel’s Daredevil. I may be mistaken, but that groaning sound I just heard was either the weight of so many superheroes waiting for their turn on the screen or the collective audiences’ complete lack of surprise.
