05/24 - Steven S. DeKnight takes over Daredevil Netflix Show

With news of the depature of director Edgar Wright from ANT-MAN still fresh in people's minds, the curious news that Drew Goddard had left the Daredevil show on Netflix was also shocking today.

Latino Review was first to report that Goddard had left DD... but no reason why.

Then news came quickly via Hollywood Reporter that former Spartacus showrunner Steven DeKnight was taking over on DD, while Goddard would remain as consultant. Goddard would focus his time on the new Sinister Six movie being developed at Sony.
