Longtime “Whedonverse” alumni Steven DeKnight shares word that “Marvel’s Daredevil”, his most recent foray into the realm of series show-runner has officially wrapped on the season finale – and there was much rejoicing!
Concluding the shoot for the Netflix series, DeKnight tweeted the following:
Thanks to the cast and crew for an amazing experience directing the season finale of #Daredevil. Goodby, NYC. Peace and love!

DeKnight recently commented on the tone of the series, saying:
It’s a little grittier and edgier than Marvel has gone before, but we’re not looking to push it to extreme violence or gratuitous nudity.
Daredevil should be a bit darker and more realistic than most superheroes (at least, that’s how I think of the character). It works for the character.
Given his previous success with Spartacus, Angel and the acclaimed sixth season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (we’re looking at you, Dark Willow) sounds like he’s got it covered.
But what about the clearly non red suit seen in promo images?
EW also revealed a new image from the show (above) and confirmed we will in fact see the red suit. I, for one, hope the suit appears early on and has a prominent stay; and not be the series leading up to it.
Marvel’s Daredevil, is an upcoming American television series developed for Netflix by Drew Goddard, based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name.
