New York Comic-Con: Netflix ‘Daredevil’ Making First Appearance with ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’
We were disappointed to find Marvel's Comic-Con 2014 presence didn't extend to Netflix's upcoming 'Daredevil' series, but with October's New York Comic-Con practically taking place in the blind superhero's backyard, the Man Without Fear will finally come out of the shadows. Find out what 'Daredevil' will bring to New York Comic-Con 2014, alongside Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'!
Where last year saw 'Agents' debuting a new episode on a Saturday panel with guest stars Jeph Loeb, Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain de Caestecker, this year will see the 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' premiering yet another installment on a Friday appearance, with cast yet to be determined. Far more exciting perhaps, is that Netflix's 'Daredevil' will host a Saturday panel with the cast, show-runner Steve DeKnight and moderator Jeph Loeb!

Join the cast of Marvel's Daredevil in their first-ever appearance with show-runner Steve DeKnight and moderator Jeph Loeb to answer questions and reveal secrets from the hotly-anticipated show debuting on Netflix in 2015.
"New York City is home to Marvel and some of the greatest fans in the world, so we ensured that Marvel Television brought its biggest panels ever to this NYCC!," said Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb. "Not only will fans get to experience our incredible partnership with Netflix as we introduce the cast of Marvel's Daredevil for the first time, but they'll get to see the world premiere of a new Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode and their first look at the future of all their favorite super heroes courtesy of Marvel Animation."
Featuring 'Boardwalk Empire' star Charlie Cox in the titular role of Matt Murdock, the cast of Marvel's 2015 Netflix 'Daredevil' includes 'True Blood' hottie Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, 'Falling Skies' alum Peter Shinkoda in an unknown role, 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay' star Elden Henson as Matt's best friend Foggy Nelson, Vincent D'Onofrio as Kingpin Wilson Fisk, as well as Rosario Dawson's mysterious character.
Apart from taking place in the same cinematic universe as ‘The Avengers‘ and ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D,’ we know that each Marvel Netflix series will shoot 13 episodes, culminating in an eight-episode team-up with ‘The Defenders’ miniseries and bringing the total to 60 episodes (to start). Drew Goddard was replaced as showrunner by 'Spartacus' vet Steven S. DeKnight, though Goddard remains a consultant.
Hopefully we'll see something of Marvel's Netflix 'Daredevil' before the big show, but what say you? Are you excited for the Man Without Fear's official unveiling at New York Comic-Con this year? What do you hope to see when 'Daredevil' premieres in 2015?
