From the sounds of things, Marvel Studios may have originally intended to make Matt Murdock a part of their Phase Three line-up. While speaking with IGN, Drew Goddard revealed that he had originally spoken with the studio about bringing Daredevil to the big screen rather than a thirteen episode series.
Based on the audience reaction to the series, I’d have to say that Marvel Studios might have made the right decision here. Goddard continued on, explaining why they decided to bring Daredevil to life on the small screen instead of bringing it to theaters.
Goddard also briefly teased the upcoming season of the series by stating that “if you liked Season 1, then Season 2 is going to blow your mind” and with the Punisher they are “able to do things on the small screen that fit that character better than if we had to water him down for the movies.” Without a doubt, Daredevil is one of the best comic book television series to date and Goddard’s comments should hype you up even more for the second season. Especially the point that he makes about Frank Castle.
Regarding the decision to make Daredevil a series a series versus a film? Well, being that “it’s all connected”, doesn’t mean we won’t see these characters make an appearance on the big screen down the line. Perhaps even sooner than we expect. As always, let us know what you think about what Goddard had to say in the box below.
