Marvel’s upcoming Daredevil Netflix series may have been noticeably absent from San Diego Comic-Con this year, but that’s because the studio was waiting to debut the first glimpse at the Man Without Fear at New York Comic-Con instead. Today, Marvel officially announced their plans to bring Daredevil to NYCC next weekend and released the official logo for the highly anticipated show.
While the logo itself obviously isn’t very revealing, it’s got a great pulpy, comic book feel to it. It’s ironically unlike any of the more blocky, “gritty” logos used for the Marvel films, despite the fact that Daredevil has extensively been described as a look at the “dark and gritty” side of the MCU.
The cast of the series, which includes Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson and Vincent D’Onofrio, will be present at the event ad will sign an exclusive piece of production concept art drawn by Marvel Chief Creative Officer and legendary comic book editor and artist Joe Quesada, which means we’ll finally be getting our first glimpse at what the new Daredevil suit looks like. Quesada’s artwork was used in Kevin Smith’s excellent Daredevil run, so my guess is we’ll see something similar, which would be awesome.
While it lacks a concrete release date, Daredevil is slated to debut on Netflix in 2015. You can read the full press release below.
Marvel and Netflix are proud to announce an exclusive “Marvel’s Daredevil” signing event at New York Comic Con on Saturday, October 11 from 3:45-4:45 p.m. ET at the Marvel Booth (#1354)
