In a recent interview,Marvel Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada revealed on Fat Man On Batman podcast Marvel’s upcoming Netflix shows will indeed be a part of the current MCU continuity.
“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.”
He then goes on to describe the feel that these characters will be given:
“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.”
“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.”
When asked about filming:
“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.”
While no exact release has been mentioned, fans are expecting more concrete info to be revealed shortly, and with Comic Con being just around the corner some are speculating that we will see these characters in full costume then.
