Many fans were hoping that new details would be revealed for the upcoming Marvel's Daredevil show on Netflix during Comic-Con last week, but the show wasn't featured in any of Marvel's panels, until yesterday, the last day of the Con. Marvel held a panel on Sunday to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the comic book company, and the 50th Anniversary of the Daredevil character himself. According to Marvel.com's live blog of the panel, Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada revealed that the show is set to debut in May 2015.
While he wouldn't divulge any specific details, Joe Quesada did confirm that they are shooting the series on location in New York City, while comparing his experience in working on the show to the early days of Marvel Knights. The Marvel Knights initiative, which Joe Quesada created with Jimmy Palmiotti, took over many of the "street level" Marvel heroes to revitalize sales. Joe Quesada ended up doing the artwork for Daredevil, in an arc written by Kevin Smith.
He wouldn't comment on how Daredevil will interact with the other Marvel shows set in Hell's Kitchen, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones, but he did express his excitement for each show, along with The Defenders mini-series where all of these heroes will come together.
Marvel's Daredevil stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Vincent D'Onofrio as Wilson Fisk/Kingpin, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Rosario Dawson as an unspecified character who may be Elektra and Peter Shinkoda as Hachiro, a character created specifically for the series.
