It's official. Shooting has wrapped on all 13 episodes of Marvel's Daredevil, the first of four Netflix series for the studio, which will culminate in the epic miniseries The Defenders. Showrunner and executive producer Steven S. DeKnight thanked his cast and crew on his personal Twitter. /marvel-daredevil-netflix-series-photos-charlie-cox/This follows two new images from last week, which offered a look at Charlie Cox in his Frank Miller-inspired black costume.
Don't worry, though. Steven S. DeKnight has confirmed that blind lawyer-turned-vigilante Matt Murdock will be seen in his traditional red suit before the series is over. Though, don't expect your traditional type of superhero adventure. As Marvel TV's Jeph Loeb describes it, this will be a much more grounded and serious take on the genre. He explains:
"There aren't going to be people flying through the sky; there are no magic hammers. We've always approached this as a crime drama first, superhero show second."
Marvel's Daredevil follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell's Kitchen, New York City. The Netflix series will debut all 13 episodes at one time. It is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix and will debut in 2015. Here is Steven S. DeKnight's official tweet:
Thanks to the cast and crew for an amazing experience directing the season finale of #Daredevil. Goodby, NYC. Peace and love!— Steven DeKnight (@stevendeknight) December 21, 2014
