With filming underway on Marvel’s first Netflix miniseries Daredevil, showrunner Steven S. DeKnight took a moment to talk about the upcoming series during last night’s world premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy in Hollywood, promising a “gritty 1970’s New York” feel to the show.
“We’re going for a very kind of gritty, 1970’s New York feel for the show. We love the idea of beauty in the decay of the city and Hell’s Kitchen being a place that is both horrible and beautiful at the same time, and that’s why Matt Murdock loves it so much and wants to protect it.”
