Details On DAREDEVIL's Ties To THE AVENGERS; Will Charlie Cox Appear In CIVIL WAR?
When and where in the Marvel Cinematic Universe does Daredevil take place? We still don't have a specific date and time (before or after the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D. in The Winter Soldier for example), but Marvel Television's Emma Fleischer did at least confirm in an interview with Empire Magazine that it follows the events of The Avengers. "We are still part of the Marvel Universe," she explianed, "but we are not explicitly in that Agenstts of S.H.I.E.L.D. world. We're in our own corner. So the aliens came down and ruined the ciy, and this is the story of Hell's Kitchen's rebuild." This is further confirmed by the publication when they mention seeing a framed newspaper in the office of the New York Bulletin showing Stark Tower "being zapped by a Chitauri laser beam".
There's been a lot of talk about when Daredevil will be set, but we now have a much clearer idea about which movie the Netflix drama will take place after! There are also new details on how it connects to the MCU, while Charlie Cox weighs in on whether ol' Horn Head will join The Avengers...
The fact that Daredevil is being released on Netflix before Avengers: Age of Ultron hits the big screen probably means the first season won't deal with any sort of fallout from that, but it could of course crop up in a second season. Does showrunner Steven S. DeKnight think another run of episodes will happen? "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." Star Charlie Cox meanwhile wasn't willing to say too much about how The Man Without Fear connects to the rest of the heroes he shares a universe with, but did say that fans should be on the lookout for "a couple of very casual Easter egg reference to other superheroes." When the magazine put it to him that a Captain America: Civil War appearance would work for Daredevil, he apparently said he wouldn't turn down the invitation, but cautioned that "in this show, Daredevil feels special, like a big thing, not an everyday occurence. It's not like he's one of that lot..."
