Aside from some tantalizing concept art, the general public has seen virtually nothing from Marvel’s first of many planned streaming shows based on “street-level” characters such as Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage. Well, we still don’t have a trailer, but showrunner Steven DeKnight has opened up via an impromptu Q&A on Twitter.

Among the details? A second season is certainly on the table if the series proves to be a hit, and DeKnight says they’re drawing inspiration from specific comic arcs but not trying to make a slavish adaptation. Oh, and DeKnight is also apparently directing the finale very soon, which means they should definitely be on track to debut the series in 2015. Here’s hoping early-ish 2015.

Check out some highlights from the Q&A below and let us know what you think:

No. RT @ComicBookBros1: Is it true Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist are all coming out in 2015?

Oh yes. Some obvious. Some very obscure. RT @nailbiter111: @stevendeknight Will Daredevil feature a lot of Easter Eggs?

Actually not that much. RT @odysseyprotocol: @ hoe often did you say, "That would be awesome but we don't have the budget for it."?

Love to write/direct a Punisher movie. Does that count?RT @ThaConLife: Would you love to include Punisher in the future with Daredevil?

Oh yes. RT @ryan_curtis: @stevendeknight okay how about as showrunner and director does anyone get to say "no, not in the budget?"

Apples and oranges. But if you like fruit, both are delicious. RT @travdog789: will #Daredevil live up to #Spartacus standards

— Steven DeKnight (@stevendeknight) November 28, 2014

Not at all. Just drawing inspiration. RT @Wastedtheshow: @stevendeknight the #DD series is totally based on Miller/JRJR mini?
