Comicbook.com is reporting that Marvel will drop Daredevil season 2 on Netflix Friday, Marh 25th – which just so happens to be the same day that Batman V Superman will hit theaters worldwide for DC.
While putting forth a streaming series confined to Netflix is not necessarily a shot across the bow from Marvel to DC, this is not the first time that the two rival companies have scheduled release dates for their IPs at the same time (does anyone remember the Civil War/Batman V Superman thing from last year?). In the past one company has always backed down in the fact of such rivalry, but this time it seems likely that both Daredevil and Batman V Superman will be staying put.
While Batman V Superman and Daredevil are wholly different in their viewing experiences and styles of storytelling this could also set the scene for a barrage of arguments on social media about who is choosing which nerd experience first.
