SDCC’14: Netflix Daredevil series to borrow from Miller run? (Shocking… )


Just before the start of the Marvel Unlimited Plus Panel at the San Diego Comic Con, Agent M (Ryan Penagos) dropped a little hint about the upcoming Daredevil series from Netflix.

According to Newsarama, Penagos told the fans that they might want to catch up on Frank Miller’s run on Daredevil from the ’80s if they wanted to know about something else they were doing.  Everyone is assuming that Agent M means the Netflix series, though reports are the series is set in 1970’s Hell’s Kitchen.  Miller’s run on Daredevil did introduce us to Elektra, who has not been named in the series (yet), which has many speculating that Rosario Dawson will be playing the female assassin.

There could be any number of other theories about Agent M’s announcement; There could be an Elektra series on the way, Netflix and Marvel have already agreed on a second season of Daredevil set in the ’80s, or even the look and feel of the show will be based on Frank Miller’s style.

Of course Ryan could simply have been hyping the Marvel Unlimited digital run of the series to get more people on board the service.
