New 'Daredevil' Details Reveal No Bullseye or Release Date, 'PG-16' Tone

Marvel fans have a lot of reasons to be excited about the future (near and far) of their favorite shared cinematic universe. New heroes, deepining sagas, and even bigger game-changing crossover events on the horizon... The MCU is about blow open wide.

Things are certainly not slouching on the Marvel TV side, either: In addition to a much-improved sophomore season for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we'll see a fan-favorite character return in her own period series (Agent Carter), while the streets of modern MCU start getting crowded thanks to Marvel's Netflix universe, which begins with Daredevil in 2015.

The Daredevil Netflix series is currently shooting in and around Williamsburg and Greenpoint, Brooklyn NYC (according to DNA Info), and from what we've heard so far (NYCC Panel) or seen for ourselves, (first promo images) this show will take its time carefully building the story of how blind lawyer Matt Murdock (Boardwalk Empire's Charlie Cox) becomes the punishing vigilante known as Daredevil.

Showrunner Steven DeKnight took Halloween 2014 as an opportunity to answer fan questions about Daredevil via a (now customary) Twitter Q&A. Here's a quick breakdown of what he had to say, followed by a few of the actual Tweets in his own words:

  • No official release date yet.
  • Daredevil nemesis Bullseye won't likely appear in season 1.
  • No one is yet revealing if the classic red costume will be seen (right now it's the ninja-esque starter costume from the "Man Without Fear" comic storyline).
  • We will see plenty of Easter eggs and references to comic book lore (and presumably the larger MCU).
  • It won't be a Hard-R or NC-17 series (like DeKnight's work on Spartacus) but will be more gritty and violent than say, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s network TV standards.
