Joe Quesada talks Marvel's Netflix series and street level superheroes

Apr. 28, 2014by:

While I am excited for all of Marvel's upcoming films, I'm very interested in their planned series for Netflix involving Defenders characters Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. In a conversation on Kevin Smith's Fat Man on Batman Podcast, Joe Quesada (comic book artist and writer, Marvel Entertainment's Chief Creative Officer) talked a little about Marvel and Netflix's new series.

Many of us assumed Netflix's series will be a part of the MCU, and during the podcast Joe Quesada confirmed they will take place in Marvel's Cinematic Universe.

There will be some interconnectivity, much like the movies. They will exist within the cinematic universe again, so this is all the same world as S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers.

However, Quesada also says the series won't be the same as Marvel's films.

Although these are superhero stories, this is different now. This is the street level…this is the street level noir side of the Marvel Universe. Something that you haven’t really, really seen in any of our Marvel movies. And probably more ground level, than I think you’ve seen. This is not like us doing Batman, Dark Knight or any of that stuff. This is very Marvel doing street level superheroes.

Joe Quesada goes on to talk about where they are with the scripts and casting for the series.

The scripts are coming in. They are pretty fantastic. They’re really emotional. They’re very, very original. But at the same time, it is Daredevil. It is Matt Murdock. We will eventually, hopefully start casting really, really soon, but I’m very, very excited about it.

Production on the Drew Goddard's Daredevil series should begin this summer in New York City, and Quesada says it will take place in Hell's Kitchen.

We’re shooting in New York. That’s the fantastic thing about it is that we’re shooting at home. We’re shooting where these characters belong. These stories take place in Hell’s Kitchen.

Joe Quesada also described the set for Daredevil, saying it "smells of dark alley, vomit, and piss."

With filming scheduled to start soon, we should be hearing more on the Daredevil and other new series for Netflix in the near future, including casting announcements. It sounds like the series will be a little darker than Marvel's films, which makes me one very happy Daredevil fan.

Most fans weren't happy with Affleck's Daredevil or Thomas Jane's Punisher, but I believe these two franchises are now in good hands since Marvel has a pretty good track record with their films. I'm willing to wait and see how these Netflix shows turn out, despite Agents of SHIELD not being very good.

Just don't fuck it up and make them all teen dramas.

I HATE the shield show. I am a little worried about this now. I just hope this is about superheroes saving the day. It has to be better than Shield and Arrow. Those are just made for idiots and for teenagers who don't know anything except they want to see half naked people on tv. They aren't made for the fans.

My god, all you do is complain about the same thing day in and day out. Nobody cares that you don't like Shield or Arrow. Nobody.

I just really hope they don't screw up Daredevil and the Punisher. I would be pretty extatic with Thomas Jane back as the Punisher and Michael C Hall as Daredevil.

This sounds really interesting to me. The concept that they're promising sounds like what i hoped agents of shield would be. Hope that they manage to do it right this time. I'm looking forward to how this turns out

Would love Tom Jane to reprise as Punisher. Seems like Marvel is trying to take theatre and tv to mew grounds. Shield has been pretty good the last few episodes, so here is hoping it stays that way. As am Arrow fan myself, season 1 was really rough too and i am enjoying season 2, so shield has a chance. Hopefully these new series are also good.

Regardless of copyright issues, I hope Daredevil would, at some point, come across with The Punisher.

Well, good news for you: Marvel Studios owns the rights to The Punisher, so they could use them anyway they choose.
