Well Marvel’s Daredevil fans can rest easy, for now. Just days after losing Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard, to Sony’s Sinister Six movie, Marvel found the series a new showrunner. Now it all depends on your level of geekery and favorite TV shows if this is a good thing or not. The good news, right of the bat, is that Marvel picked Steven S. DeKnight, a Joss Whedon/ Buffy the Vampire Slayer Alum for the new Netflix series. So of you love Buffy, Angel, and Dollhouse this is good thing. If you love Spartacus: War of the Damned and Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, both on Showtime, again you are golden. If you got fed up with Smallville, of which he produced 64 episodes of, you may be in trouble. Hey different strokes for different folks. 

The proof is in the pudding and DeKnight has some solid TV experience behind him. Personally, I cannot wait for this new Daredevil series. I reserve my judgement for after it arrives. Who leaves Daredevil for the Sinister Six?
