It has been announced that Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard will write the Daredevil series for Netflix. He will also direct the pilot. If you don’t know who he is, he is the screenwriter for films such as World War Z and Cloverfield. He had this to say about the character of Daredevil:
“You’re talking to a guy who had quotes from Daredevil painted on his wall while growing up. Even when I was 18, I still had the blood red door with the, ‘I have shown him that a man without hope is a man without fear.’ That was what I loved and so it’s the sort of thing that if we can find the right project, I would love to do it.”
What else more do you need? He is a lifelong fan. I have complete faith in him. I actually enjoyed the Ben Affleck film that was made awhile back, but i can see why they would choose to do a series first. Then i’m sure if the series does good, expect a film to come after. The Daredevil series is expected to hit Netflix in 2014.
