Marvel has confirmed some exciting news relating to its upcoming string of Netflix shows. We learned last month that Cabin in the Woods co-writer/director Drew Goddard was in talks to spearhead Marvel’s Daredevil series, and now the studio has confirmed that Goddard will indeed be running the show. The Cloverfield scribe will write and direct the first episode and will act as showrunner and executive producer on the show’s entire 13-episode run. Daredevil is one of four one-season Netflix series that Marvel is producing, which also includes Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage. All of the one-season shows will lead up to a The Defenders miniseries.
Daredevil will be first out of the gate, with Marvel confirming that it will premiere on Netflix in 2015. With a guy as passionate and talented as Goddard at the helm, Daredevil looks to be in very good hands.
