Comic Book Resources was able to revive its former weekly feature with Marvel’s Joe Quesada on Friday, Cup O’ Joe. The questions specifically targeted the upcoming Netflix shows with Daredevil being the main subject. On his involvement with the series, he told them.
“I’ve been working very, very closely with the entire team on all levels of the show. 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 very involved with the show, as well as everything that we’re doing with the Netflix shows. I’m incredibly excited, plus the dark and gritty noir world of DD and the Netflix characters, it’s kind of where I live so it naturally attracts me to begin with.”
When he was asked about trying to get the show out of the original Daredevil film’s shadow, he responded:
“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. 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. That’s really, ultimately, the goal of this: How do we produce a “Daredevil” TV show on Netflix, that’s going to be viewed the way that people view content on Netflix, in a way that’s going to be compelling, feels unique, while bringing something that is not only true to the character, but providing something unexpected as well.”
Daredevil seems like he will be in good hands with Quesada involved. Are you looking forward to the new Netflix Daredevil series?
