09/12 - DeKnight Interview at Paste Magazine

Paste Magazine sat down with Daredevil showrunner Steven DeKnight, and they discussed Spartacus, and DeKnight's early days in his career.

He also describes the behind-the-scenes workings of the show and we learn quite a bit about the cast and crew.

Whenever you start casting to get a show off the ground, it's so nerve-wracking, it's akin to a writer just looking at a blank piece of paper before you start. There a thousand ways to go, and you're sure that 999 are the wrong way. You just have to hope you find the right way. Luckily our cast came together, and I couldn't have been happier. No one will ever perfectly fit what's in your head. For me, the more important thing is not whether or not they look the part, but if they feel the part.

Marvel TV's Jeph Loeb also spoke a bit about the Daredevil show in a special Axel-in-Charge column at CBR today as well, so be sure to check it out.

[...] what I can say is things have been going great. We have an incredible cast. Steve S. DeKnight, who is our showrunner, has been leading the charge and everyone seems to be very happy with where we are so far. The decision to go into New York Comic Con as our premiere showing of what we're doing had a lot to do with the fact that so much of the Netflix shows are about being in New York. The street-level heroes live and breathe it. We love what the folks do over in the feature department, and the Marvel movies are doing astonishing things with the Avengers characters and beyond. This is a chance for us to be able to show another side of the Marvel Universe, which is the heroes of Hell's Kitchen. We're having an awful lot of fun all over Manhattan -- really using the city as a character. And what better place to celebrate that than at the con?
