12/11 - DAREDEVIL Sales Data

Sales data for DAREDEVIL has been updated up to the milestone #612 issue.

There was a slight jump with the start of the "Death of Daredevil" arc, and a bigger jump (with multiple variants) for the final issue of volume 5.

It is also concerning to see the sales go below 23K... let's see how the new #1 does in February.

12/10 - Marvel/Netflix Selling Show Wardrobes

Today I learned from a source in the NYC film industry that Marvel/Netflix is selling clothing from DAREDEVIL, LUKE CAGE and IRON FIST.

It appears to be an industry only sale, advertising "coats, dresses, shoes, you name it" from all three shows.

There are $1, $5, $10 and $15 racks (and the racks are on sale too), and only credit/debit is accepted.

The sale started today and continues until Friday at a location in Brooklyn.

It isn't clear if this sale also includes costumes, but it does mention "uniforms", which leads me to believe this includes things like FBI jackets and maybe ninja outfits?

Nevertheless, for fans hoping that a Season 4 could be salvaged, this doesn't look good.

It also isn't clear who is selling the clothing... is it Netflix or Marvel?

12/06 - Charlie Cox Discusses DAREDEVIL Cancellation

DAREDEVIL was cancelled a week ago and we had yet to hear any comments from Charlie Cox... until now. Entertainment Weekly discussed the cancellation with the actor, and Cox had some very personal takes on what has happened...

"...these characters mean a lot to people. It’s weird to think there’s a chance I won’t be playing Matt Murdock ever again. That’s a bizarre feeling, because that character has been such a huge part of my life for the last four and a half years.”

2018-11-30-Zdarsky-Checchetto-Talk-DAREDEVIL

11/30 - Zdarsky & Checchetto Talk DAREDEVIL

The final issue of Volume 5 has shipped and we've got a long wait until February's relauch with writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Marco Checchetto.

Marvel.com chatted with the new creative team to get some details about what's coming for Daredevil in the new series.

If you haven't read the ending of issue #612 yet, I'd advise you to skip this interview until you've done so... some spoilers ahead...

Some comments from Zdarsky:

"He’s trying to prove himself. That he can do the job. I’ve always loved the various tonal takes on DAREDEVIL, but for this run I’ve decided to really go deep on the realities of being a vigilante in this world. Out of all the main Super Heroes, Daredevil has felt like the one you could do that with. I don’t care to see a “reality-based” Fantastic Four (though as I type that I remember how much I loved UNSTABLE MOLECULES. The exception to prove the rule!), but I love the idea of a reality-based DAREDEVIL."

Some comments from Checchetto:

"I felt in love immediately with Chip's script. It's in pure Daredevil style. We love the same stories and characters and we have a similar vision for this series, how Matt has to look and his costume for example, or the page layouts. I like his storytelling -- it's very simple to work on his script, it's all perfect and measured. It's a joy when you can work with writers like him. The fact he is an artist too can help to find some visual idea. Chip did the first teaser of the series for example."

DAREDEVIL #1 by Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto ships in February.

11/30 - DAREDEVIL Cast and Crew Reactions

It's a day later, and several members of the cast and crew of DAREDEVIL took to Twitter to say a few words about the cancellation.

Full Marvel Statement

"Marvel is extremely grateful to the huge audience that loved Marvel’s Daredevil. From the moment of young Matt’s first act of heroism to the birth of Page, Murdock, & Nelson, it has been a unbelievable journey. We are incredibly proud of the amazing showrunners and writers starting with Drew Goddard and Steven DeKnight, Marco Ramirez and Doug Petrie and Erik Oleson, Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Vincent D’Onofrio and our casts who brought our characters to life with such excellence, and every one of the fantastic crews in NYC. We look forward to more adventures with the Man without Fear in the future."

11/29 - Netflix Cancels DAREDEVIL

DEADLINE has reported news that Daredevil fans don't want to hear... DAREDEVIL has been cancelled on Netflix. It joins IRON FIST and LUKE CAGE, and it certainly doesn't look good for the next seasons of JESSICA JONES and PUNISHER.

“Marvel’s Daredevil will not return for a fourth season on Netflix,” the streamer said in a statement tonight to Deadline. “We are tremendously proud of the show’s last and final season and although it’s painful for the fans, we feel it best to close this chapter on a high note.””We’re thankful to our partners at Marvel, showrunner Erik Oleson, the show’s writers, stellar crew and incredible cast including Charlie Cox as Daredevil himself, and we’re grateful to the fans who have supported the show over the years,” Netflix added just a month after the third season of the series launched on the service.

But there was a curious addition to the statement from Netflix:

“While the series on Netflix has ended, the three existing seasons will remain on the service for years to come, while the Daredevil character will live on in future projects for Marvel,” Netflix said also.

The Daredevil account on Twitter tweeted this shortly after the news broke:

So... is DD moving to Hulu, or Disney+? A movie? What are these future projects they are talking about?

11/12 - Stan Lee 1922-2018

Former writer, editor, publisher of Marvel Comics, Stan Lee, passed away today at age 95.

I don't need to describe the importance and influence Lee had on comics and movies. Daredevil was one of his many co-creations that has been around since 1964.

I never met Lee, but I did get in touch with him about 14 years ago for the 40th anniversary feature I did for the site. I asked him what did Daredevil mean to him personally and professionally, and he said:

"Daredevil was very important to me because he was the first superhero I created who had the serious physical handicap of blindness. It was a challenge to me to find ways for Matt Murdock to overcome his handicap and actually function as a credible superhero.

I'm enormously pleased that the project turned out so successfully, evinced by the fact that Daredevil has been a popular hero for four decades. It's also a source of great satisfaction to me that each succeeding writer has brought new, interesting concepts and characters into the series.

So here's to our good ol' Man Without Fear. Long may he reign!"

Thank you Stan.

Because Matt Murdock is beginning to remember…
