Marvel made some big news when they announced that four of their characters — Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones — would be developed into series for Netflix. Not only would the four have their own series, but they would then be joined together as a new Defenders team.
There hasn’t been a lot of news since the first announcement until this past Friday where Marvel officially announced that Daredevil has a Writer and Showrunner. They have picked Drew Goddard (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Lost, Cloverfield, Cabin in the Woods, World War Z) to lead the way with Daredevil. This also confirms of an earlier report that had Goddard picked for the job. He will write and direct the first episode of the series to set the tone, then stay on as the Showrunner and Executive Producer for the 13-episode series. Daredevil is tentatively set to premiere in 2015. (Source: Marvel)
