Marvel has big plans for Netflix and the company's CCO, Joe Quesada, recently spoke about their first Netflix project: Daredevil. First and foremost, Quesada made it transparent they aren't trying to wipe your memories of 2003's Daredevil movie. "Let me be clear, we're not going into this show with the idea of trying to erase the memory of anything that came before or really any preconceived notions whatsoever." The CCO added they want to create something that'll have everyone hooked to their TV sets -- or whatever device they're using to watch Netflix. “We're going into the show trying to create something that's incredibly exciting, incredibly engaging, and will give our fans something that they love, something that's unexpected, something that's going to keep them coming back for more.”
He continued to say that Matt Murdock's 13-episode season means they can "plan it out as a very large movie. It makes seeing the bigger picture a little bit easier." We're pretty sure that means quite a few of you out there will be brave enough to tackle all of the episodes in just one sitting. Lastly, Quesada made sure to emphasize his love for the Man without Fear. “I think everybody knows my relationship with the character of Daredevil, and how important the character is to me -- not just on an emotional front, but on a professional front. How DD brought me back here to Marvel, and how instrumental he was to even me being in this particular position I'm in today… I’m incredibly excited.”
Now we just have to wait for casting news. Who else is thrilled to see how this all turns out?
