First Marvel Netflix series get comics-accurate logo, NYCC cast signing
Ahead of a big cast appearance/signing at New York Comic Con on October 11th, Marvel Studios and Netflix have revealed the notably comics-styled logo for Daredevil, the debut series from the superhero-factory’s much-hyped collaboration with the streaming giant.
Created by Stan Lee and Bill Everett in 1964, Daredevil is a superhero who, blinded in an accident as a child, uses his ultra-heightened remaining senses to achieve superhuman feats and fight crime in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood – where he also lives and works as attorney Matt Murdock. The series is the first in a planned set of four Netflix-exclusive franchises, which will also include vehicles for Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Alias: Jessica Jones. The plan is for the four series to ultimately tie-together into a miniseries event called The Defenders.
The NYCC event also includes a Daredevil-centric panel and a poster for the series drawn by Joe Quesada. Though not confirmed, many expect the first footage from the series to debut there as well.
