Earlier this week Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil marketing kicked off in a big way with a teaser poster, a motion poster and – most importantly – an idea of when the series will actually be made available to viewers.
“Some will roll in as early as eight months and others in 15 months apart, and basically what it is is we’re not trying to meet a fall programming schedule or trying to hit a grid number, so really we want to give the shows enough time.
“Jessica Jones hasn’t started production yet, so a lot happens from the first day on the set to the last day of production. So we want to give them enough room and enough time to make a great show, so I don’t want to set up a rigid timetable and deliver a show every eight months or every twelve months, but you should expect them about a year apart.”
This is only a rough estimate then, but if Daredevil will be available from 10 April 2015, we’re perhaps looking at Jessica Jones in 2016, Luke Cage in 2017, Iron Fist in 2018, and finally team-up miniseries The Defenders in 2019.
Daredevil will air on Netflix on 10 April. You can buy Daredevil: Born Again by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli for £10.34 at Amazon.co.uk. For more on the comics that have inspired the show, pick up our 100 All-Time Greatest Comics bookazine now!
