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.
Hidden deep in the woods, past the abandoned insane asylum and long-forgotten summer camp, off the old dirt road, across the creaky timber bridge, lies a log cabin. Under the full moon some have said they've heard blood-curdling howls from deep in the basement, though none have been brave enough to explore further...
If they had, the shocking reveal would be that the screams come from old horror VHS tapes, accompanied by the maniacal laugh of Phil Robinson, brought on by comics and wrestling promos. The self-confessed "horror guy", he has also been known to talk about Spider-Man and heavy metal at great, unnecessary lengths.
Yes, he knows he needs a haircut.
