Why DAREDEVIL Season 2 Debuting Opposite BATMAN V SUPERMAN Is Smart

Now it's Netflix Vs. Theater Chains

This coming March will prove to be a good one for fans as Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to open on March 25th 2016. That date has now been staked out by the second season of Daredevil. It’s a bold move for Netflix and Marvel to debut the second season opposite a massive Hollywood blockbuster, but is it also a smart one?

While it’s difficult to say if the two are at risk of drawing a substantial financial stake out of either project, Daredevil gives itself the benefit of being readily available to people in their homes, on their phones, etc. Meanwhile Batman V Superman requires buying a ticket for what will be a packed theater. So already, it’s more accessible to people. Especially with the low cost of Netflix.


Putting these two projects opposite of eachother makes it a real draw. Do you watch Daredevil’s second season or Batman V Superman? Considering the high critical praise that Daredevil received in it’s first season, it stands to reason that people are likely more interested in seeing Matt’s story evolve over seeing Batman fight Superman.

This is why Daredevil will ultimately come out winning. Man of Steel’s lukewarm reception means that many fans are more concerned with seeing a continuation of that great serialized story found in Daredevil then they are seeing the bombastic moments of Batman V Superman.


It’s entirely possible that Daredevil’s second season will receive strong negative reaction, or that Batman V Superman will receive a negative reaction; however if we’re taking both projects as they are, I have a strong feeling people would rather invest in Daredevil then they would in Batman V Superman. Especially considering the lower barrier of entry.
