Over the weekend we were distressed to learn that Marvel's Netflix 'Daredevil' series had suffered a setback in losing Drew Goddard as its showrunner, but atop Goddard's replacement with 'Spartacus' showrunner Stephen S. DeKnight, we may at last have some good news. Is 'Boardwalk Empire' star Charlie Cox officially ready to put his horns to work as Matt Murdock for Netflix's 'Daredevil' TV series? Let's find out!
ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, Marvel Studios sheds a bunch of talent, the 'Man of Steel' sequel gets a truly weird title, and our first look at Disney's first animated Marvel movie, 'Big Hero 6,' arrives.
In yet another shocking Marvel plot twist, their upcoming 'Daredevil' series has reportedly lost Drew Goddard. While it's not nearly as hard of a blow or as surprising as yesterday's news that director Edgar Wright has parted ways with the studio over differences on 'Ant-Man,' it's still enough to make this a bit of a one-two punch.
We've heard precious little since Marvel's announcement of an epic Netflix 'Defenders' package to begin with 'Daredevil' in 2015, along with the decision that all five series would shoot in New York, but with casting in limbo, at least some news have emerged. What does Marvel honcho Joe Quesada have to say of the "street-level noir" approach to the series and possible inter-connectivity to the films?
Relatively little of Marvel's forthcoming Netflix 'Defenders' project have emerged, apart from the writing minds behind 'Daredevil' and 'Jessica Jones,' but now New Yorkers have something special to look forward to. Marvel's coming Netflix series will principally shoot on location in their proper New York City hometown, with 'Daredevil' set to begin filming in summer 2014!
In all the chaos and commotion of Marvel's announcement toward Netflix TV series for 'Daredevil,' 'Jessica Jones,' 'Iron Fist' and 'Luke Cage,' it became difficult to separate truth from rumor. Now, with 'Daredevil' the first in line for our 'Defenders,' Marvel has confirmed ‘LOST‘ executive producer and ‘The Cabin in the Woods’ helmer Drew Goddard to take the reigns of the 'Daredevil' TV series.
We're still reeling from the announcement that Marvel and Netflix will bring together four separate TV series for 'Daredevil,' 'Jessica Jones,' 'Iron Fist' and 'Luke Cage,' before placing the foursome together in a 'Defenders' miniseries event, but new details have emerged to have fans drooling: 'LOST' executive producer and 'The Cabin in the Woods' helmer Drew Goddard has reportedly signed on to write the 'Daredevil' series for 2015!
We're still reeling from Marvel's bombshell announcement of four new Netflix original series for 'Daredevil,' 'Jessica Jones,' 'Iron Fist' and 'Luke Cage,' eventually forming their own miniseries 'The Defenders,' but questions will continue to pour in over the long wait until 2015. For instance, does Disney believe the heroes could still lead to their own films? What about the proposed 'Agent Carter' series?
Remember that mysterious four-series and a miniseries deal that Marvel TV had supposedly been working on a few weeks back? Well, forget all about an 'Agent Carter' spinoff to follow 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' it seems the Marvel heroes of Hell's Kitchen will finally get their due, as Netflix will host four new original live-action series for 'Daredevil,' 'Jessica Jones,' 'Iron Fist' and 'Luke Cage,' before an epic 'The Defenders' miniseries event!
Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, is the man with all the superhero secrets. He knows everything about all the Marvel movies we will be getting and hope to be getting, and naturally when Mr. Feige goes out in public to promote 'Thor 2,' you can bet he's gonna get a ton of questions about the current and upcoming slate of Marvel movies.
As it so happens, he did get those questions and he gave a lot of answers. So, what have we learned about Phase 3?
