With Marvel and Netflix’s partnership riding high after the continued momentum gained from Jessica Jones, all eyes are on the return of Daredevil. Its second series will be next up to bat, following what was a truly gripping first run. No pressure then.
Drew Goddard – the screenwriter of The Martian and director of Cabin in the Woods – has had an on-again-off-again relationship with Daredevil. He was the original showrunner to the series, but had to step down from the position after Sony offered him the helm of the Spider-Man spin-off movie Sinister Six. The position then went to Steven S. DeKnight, who did a fantastic job, while Goddard stayed on as an executive producer.
In a new interview that has surfaced, he speaks out about what the Daredevil writers’ room is like, and what their goals are for the vigilante and his supporting cast of characters in season two:

Speaking with Collider, when asked about what we can expect, Goddard says ”We try never to make pushing the boundary the goal… You just do what’s right for the character.”
Speaking on the benefits of working with the streaming service, he says “I think what’s nice about Netflix is that we have the freedom to be a little more adult. But none of us sit in the writers room and say, ‘Let’s shock everyone today.’ You know, that’s not really the goal. It’s more about what the characters are going through.”
When pushed for details on The Punisher, who will be appearing in some capacity in season two (played by of The Walking Dead fame), Goddard is quite tight-lipped, but says of his story “Obviously these characters, like Frank, deal with darker, dirtier things.”
We can’t wait to see them.

Daredevil Season 2 will return to Netflix some time in 2016.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
