Daredevil will be a Netflix original series

YES! Said this long-time Daredevil fan. This is good news for those of us who are anxiously awaiting a decent adaptation of The Man Without Fear sans Ben Affleck in leather pants.

Netflix just cut a deal with Marvel Comics to bring the character to life, and are close to signing The Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard to pen the series. Goddard also wrote Cloverfield and World War Z and worked with the likes Joss Whedon and JJ Abrams on several TV series including Angel, Alias, Lost and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Good geek pedigree, no?

With Goddard on board, and the free creative reign Netflix has given collaborators on original shows like House of Cards and Hemlock Grove, this Daredevil series could be something special. We'll know for sure when it premieres next year.
