The Daredevil series is sounding pretty good…

It’s a shame that Marvel isn’t able to get the Netflix Daredevil series out in 2014, as this year is the 50th anniversary of the Man Without Fear. A 13 episode series would be a great way to celebrate the blind superhero’s anniversary. Still, we’ll be seeing the entire series next year and recently Joe Quesada was on Kevin Smith’s Fatman on Batman talking about Captain America and the Netflix series came up. transcribed some of the bits of news Quesada dropped about the first series out the gate:

“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,” said Quesada. “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.”

“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.”

He again confirmed that the series take place within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which means Matt Murdock had better be The Avengers’ lawyer in Avengers 3…
