‘Daredevil’: 7 things we learned about Netflix’s new series

How will Marvel’s Daredevil series differ from all those other super hero shows and movies — not to mention the 2003 film version? We recently got the scoop from Marvel’s TV head Jeph Loeb, Daredevil showrunner Steven S. DeKnight and Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire).

Michael C. Hall stars in an IFC film that centers on a husband and father who tries to protect his family with lethal force and discovers the police aren’t always there to help. This looks extremely cool and atmospheric. The movie is based on a bestselling cult classic novel by the same name, written by Joe R. Lansdale. It reminds me a bit of ‘Mud‘, but that’s probably only because of Sam Shepard being in it. Don Johnson is also in the picture and looks wonderful.

Many believe that Hall is a front-funner for playing Daredevil in the Marvel Netflix mini-series due out next year. He has played a serial killer, but this could be the first chance to see him as the avenging hero…with a spectacular mullet.

Also, can I recommend Shepard for the new General Ross if they don’t bring back William Hurt?

Geek: Marvel’s Next Move

The shoe has dropped and @Marvel has announced a very obvious (and genius) new partnership with Netflix to release what will amount to original content on the streaming service. The question will remain whether there will be a link to the continuity of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe or will Marvel be creating its own small screen timeline with Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. setting its marching orders? Either way, explosively AWESOME news!!! Louis D’Esposito will be a very busy man!
