Ever since Netflix announced their Daredevil series, fans have wondered whether it will take place among Marvel's broader cinematic universe. Well the studio's chief creative officer Joe Quesada spoke to the Fat Man on Batman podcast to discuss the new show and had some revealing things to say:
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.
Quesada went on to talk about the tone the series is hoping to adopt and by the sounds of things, it's gonna get grim:
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.
Sounds like an interesting new edge for the franchise. The show will be shot on location in Hell's Kitchen and apparently the scripts have already started coming in. Quesada says the set "smells of dark alley, vomit, and piss."
