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:
