Regular BBC director Farren Blackburn has announced that he’ll be working on Netflix’s Marvel TV series Daredevil, under the watchful eye of showrunner Steven S DeKnight.

The director’s tweet was since deleted.

Blackburn’s credits include the first three episodes of the much-loved The Fades and two episodes of Luther, which show his grasp of urban storytelling.

He also directed Doctor Who turkey The Rings Of Akhaten and the so-so The Doctor, the Widow And The Wardrobe, so keep him well away from Saturday afternoon fare…

Daredevil will air on Netflix in 2015. Find out more about the comics that inspired the series with new digital magazine Uncanny Comics. You can buy Daredevil: Born Again by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli for £10.34 at Amazon.co.uk.
