It was revealed last month that Drew Goddard would be working on the Daredevil show that’s being produced for Netflix. Well, it’s now been officially confirmed by Marvel.
The official line on the matter is:
Marvel.com brought you the first news of the historic team-up between Marvel Television and Netflix, and now we’re proud to officially announce that award-winning writer/director Drew Goddard (“Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” “Lost,” “Cloverfield,” “Cabin in the Woods,” “World War Z”) will join Marvel’s “Daredevil”! Goddard will write and direct the “Daredevil” first episode, setting the tone and look for the show, while also serving as series Showrunner and Executive Producer for the 13-episode series premiering on Netflix in 2015.
As well as the Daredevil series, there’s also Luke Cage, Iron First, and Jessica Jones shows on the way to Netflix, with them all tying in together to create a Defenders show at a later date.
Personally, this was just another excuse for me to throw up another badass Daredevil picture.
