The Man Without Fear returns to New York as Marvel's Netflix 'Daredevil' formally unveils the first of the 'Defenders' at New York Comic-Con 2014. We're on hand with Marvel TV heads and the entire Netflix cast for a first look at the new superhero drama due out in 2015, so what does Marvel's 'Daredevil' bring to the stage for its first official unveiling? Check out our full panel report for the inside scoop on Marvel's Netflix 'Daredevil!
Marvel fans have anxiously awaited a first look at Netflix's 'Daredevil' series to arrive at New York Comic-Con 2014, but if a new report is to be believed, the superhero empire may already have found its live-action 'Luke Cage' as well. 'Psych' and 'West Wing' star Dulé Hill has reportedly won the part of Marvel's comic book hero for hire, while both 'Jessica Jones' and 'Iron Fist' may soon be announced as well.
No, you shouldn't adjust your computer screen. The above photo is of Vincent D'Onofrio, who shaved his head for his role as Wilson Fisk (aka Kingpin) in Marvel's upcoming 'Daredevil' series, to stream on Netflix in 2015. As he told ScreenCrush earlier today, tonight he's filming a big scene in Brooklyn where "it’s the first time you see my character do something physical." Given how intimidating the 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent' vet looks in person with this new look -- mind you, he's also 6'4'' -- we can't wait to see how his character comes to life on-screen.
Marvel mas managed to keep Netflix's forthcoming 'Daredevil' TV series reasonably blind to public eye for a series that shoots in New York City, but despite the lack of formal presence at Comic-Con 2014, the Man Without Fear still has some news to offer. TNT 'Falling Skies' vet Peter Shinkoda has joined the series in a major and mysterious recurring role, but as whom, you ask?
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 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!
