With Daredevil, Power Man, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist arriving on Netflix, each with their own series next year, we knew more news was to follow. The next bit of news to arrive is who will take charge of each of these comic book heroes. The Wrap broke an exclusive story yesterday that Drew Goddard (Cloverfield, Cabin in the Woods) is in talks to helm the “Daredevil” series.
No official statement by Disney/ Marvel has been made at this time. Drew Goddard’s people also have no comment on the news.
“Goddard is a self-professed ‘Daredevil’ buff whose interest in the character is well known. ‘You’re talking to a guy who had quotes from Daredevil painted on his wall while growing up,’ Goddard told Collider earlier this year. ‘Even when I was 18, I still had the blood red door with the, ‘have shown him that a man without hope is a man without fear.’ That was what I loved and so it’s the sort of thing that if we can find the right project, I would love to do it.’
Goddard, who is currently developing the sci-fi movie ‘The Martian’ for 20th Century Fox”.
Sounds like Goddard may be the right man to tackle “The Man without Fear”. Sound off below Maniacs!
