Daredevil TV show will be set in Marvel Cinematic Universe

Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada has been discussing what we can expect from the forthcoming Daredevil TV show, and has confirmed that it will link in with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"There will be some interconnectivity, much like the movies," Quesada told Kevin Smith. "They will exist within the cinematic universe again, so this is all the same world as S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers."

"Although these are superhero stories, this is different now," he continues. "This is the street level… this is the street level noir side of the Marvel Universe. Something that you haven’t really seen in any of our Marvel movies."

"The scripts are coming in. They are pretty fantastic. They’re really emotional. They’re very, very original. But at the same time, it is Daredevil . It is Matt Murdock."

"We will eventually, hopefully, start casting really, really soon," he concludes, "but I’m very, very excited about it." If all goes to plan, Daredevil should arrive on Netflix sometime next year…
