Less than a month before Avengers: Age of Ultron hits the big screen on May 1, fans will get to visit a new corner of the Marvel universe with the Netflix series Marvel's Daredevil, with all of Season 1 debuting in its entirety on April 10. This new series will be the first of four Marvel Netflix shows, followed by Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and the miniseries The Defenders. Empire recently spoke to the new Daredevil himself, Charlie Cox, who was asked about the possibility of his character Matt Murdock making an appearance in the highly-anticipated Captain America: Civil War, which starts shooting later this year. While the actor said he would not turn down the chance to appear in the Phase Three sequel, he also added that Daredevil may not exactly fit in with Earth's Mightiest Heroes
"On this show, Daredevil feels special, like a big thing, not an everyday occurrence. It's not like he's one of that lot..."
The actor did also hint at, "a couple of very casual Easter egg reference to other superheroes" that fans should keep an eye out for in the series. Marvel Television's Emma Fleischer did confirm that Marvel's Daredevil is set after the events of 2012's Marvel's The Avengers, and that while the show is in fact a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it won't exactly be tied to ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..
"We are still part of the Marvel Universe, but we are not explicitly in that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. world. We're in our own corner. So the aliens came down and ruined the city, and this is the story of Hell's Kitchen's rebuild."
Empire also confirms the timeline by mentioning a framed newspaper in the New York Bulletin office, showing Stark Tower "being zapped by a Chitauri laser beam." Obviously, since the show debuts before Avengers: Age of Ultron, they won't deal with the fallout from that movie, although it's possible that may happen if Season 2 is ordered. When asked about the possibility for a Season 2 renewal, showrunner Steven S. DeKnight had this to say.
"We certainly hope so! I mean, it's totally up to Netflix. But I think it's a phenomenal season and we certainly end in up a place where we could tell many other stories."
