"Daredevil" Getting the "Winter Soldier" Treatment

Had you heard of "Three Days of the Condor" before the Russo brothers cited it as one of their main inspirations for Captain America: Winter Soldier? Cap's second solo adventure felt a bit like said 1970s conspiracy thriller, and that was pretty good news.


Now Stephen S. DeKnight, the showrunner of the upcoming Daredevil series on Netflix, told Marvel's own online reporter, that the show would go in similar direction, "a kind of very gritty, 1970s New York feel."

Here’s what he actually has to say about the show while at the red carpet premiere for Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.

“We’re going for a very gritty, 1970s New York feel for the ['Daredevil'] 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. That’s why Matt Murdock loves it so much and wants to protect it.”

You can watch the actual clip the quote is from below!

One would assume that this is just the planned feel for Hell’s Kitchen so that future crossovers with existing characters could feasibly happen. In fact, this is a very similar feel seen in Joe Carnahan‘s sizzle reel before the rights of ‘Daredevil’ reverted back to Marvel.

BONUS: Get one of these uhhhh unique-looking Winter Soldier plush toys

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is set to hit DVD and Blu-ray on September 9. And while we doubt most superhero fans need much cajoling to pick up what is easily one of Marvel Studios' best efforts so far, Marvel is providing a little added incentive anyway.

This week, Marvel is debuting a new set of plush toys based on the Winter Soldier movie. The lineup features the Falcon, Captain America, and the Winter Soldier. Falcon measures 14-inches tall while the other two are 15.

Marvel will have all three on display at Comic-Con starting on Wednesday's Preview Night. As for how you can actually purchase these plushes, Marvel is only making them available as "purchase with purchase" items. Anyone who purchases the movie (physically or digitally) will have the option to purchase one plush or the full set. A single plush will cost $34.99 (plus $7.35 shipping) or all three for $99.99 (plus $8.65 shipping).
