DAREDEVIL: Netflix Show Will Co-Exist in Marvel Cinema & TV Universe


Netflix‘s Daredevil will exist in Marvel Universe. Though there was some conjecture on whether or not the Netflix’s Daredevil TV series would co-exist in the established Marvel Cinema and TV Universe, those questions have now been answered. Daredevil will co-exist in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe and its TV Universe as well e.g. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..

Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada had this to say about Daredevil on Netflix:

On the show’s place in the Marvel Studios Canon:

There will be some interconnectivity, much like the movies. They will exist within the cinematic universe again, so this is all the same world as S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers.

On the release plan:

You’re going to get all these episodes, and you can binge watch them however you want, and then binge watch them again.

On how the show will differ from other superhero properties:

Although these are superhero stories, this is different now. This is the street level…this is the street level noir side of the Marvel Universe. Something that you haven’t really, really seen in any of our Marvel movies. And probably more ground level, than I think you’ve seen. This is not like us doing Batman, Dark Knight or any of that stuff. This is very Marvel doing street level superheroes.

On the status of the show:

The scripts are coming in. They are pretty fantastic. They’re really emotional. They’re very, very original. But at the same time, it is Daredevil. It is Matt Murdock. We will eventually, hopefully start casting really, really soon, but I’m very, very excited about it.

And on the villain:

I’m not going to say who the villain is in our story

Damn, and we were on such a role.
