Great news, it helps that he is a huge fan of the character as proven b this quote"“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.”

Awesome news! Super excited for this show, Daredevil is my favourite Marvel character and assuming this is a little more serious than the films, think this could be a perfect version of Daredevil. Hoping it's a mix of Frank Millers, Waids and Bendis' runs on the character, a tone somewhere around the Bendis run would be great

Knowing that Goddard is a big fan of the character is really reassuring, just as excited for this (if not more so) as I am upcoming films...wonder, will Iron Fist, JJ and Luke Cage all get started in 2015 too or will it be like one a year or something? Can't wait to find out more

The news just wont stop! We should all be happy little school girls...something for everybody!

I hope they base it on the Mark Waid recent run with Samnee! Those are great stories that will fit perfectly in the MCU!

@Ezio

Don't die before X-Men Apocalypse! Lol
SpiderParker - 12/6/2013, 11:36 AM
I'm excited for this but Marvel should have just made a proper Daredevil movie. Now I really wonder though, which other character might Kevin Feige have been referring to when he hinted a secret identity movie for future.
Nomis - 12/6/2013, 11:37 AM
@ SageMode - Man that's nice. Who's the artist?
FoxForce5 - 12/6/2013, 11:38 AM
So, Joss pulling strings?... Well, for the record, I'm not the least bit mad about that. Great news!
JoeMomma29 - 12/6/2013, 11:39 AM
Please make this show dark and gritty!
CaptainAmerica31 - 12/6/2013, 11:39 AM
Better be serious though
ezio619 - 12/6/2013, 11:40 AM
while i do like the tone of the MCU, while it is light,it does have dark moments imo, daredevil, while not dark all the time due to the banter between matt and foggy, it veers for a more dramatic tone which is what i want,i expect it starting with a waid tone then slowly developing into amore Bendis/Miller tone as the show progresses
dutchman - 12/6/2013, 11:40 AM
Best week ever
MarkV - 12/6/2013, 11:40 AM
Hope there is some court room drama...
GinjaNinja - 12/6/2013, 11:41 AM
is it confirmed these are in the MCU?
MarkV - 12/6/2013, 11:41 AM
Gusto, That's a striking rodent. Fierce of heart and strong of tail.

OMG THIS IS HAPPENING!!! PLEASE DONT TELL ME I AM DREAMING!!!!!
ezio619 - 12/6/2013, 11:42 AM
they have said this is alook into amore gritty side of the universe, the marvel movies are action adventure films, but daredevil needs a more dramatic tone and im pretty sure one of the reasons was to get that type of tone on Netflix
GinjaNinja - 12/6/2013, 11:42 AM
MarkV I can't tell if your serious.
