If you are raising your eyebrows at this, please don’t. I’m not going to talk about the poor excuse-for-a-movie Daredevil which starred Ben Affleck. I am going to talk about Netflix’s latest take on Marvel’s iconic superhero.
Origin stories are a dime a dozen nowadays. And gritty, realistic origin stories, with no sight of character or plot development, more so. Ever since Batman Begins, everyone wants to do their own version of an origin tale. Not everyone succeeds.
Daredevil’s film rights reverted to Marvel Studio from 20th Century Fox in December 2012. It was then decided that this series would add in to the Marvel Cinematic Universe due to the latter’s success.
Drew Goddard (of Lost fame) was then hired as the show-runner and then succeeded by Steven DeKnight (creator of Spartacus).
