"When we started talking to our actors and to our directors, this is with all due respect to the film, if you want to know what we’re not doing, go watch the movie. If you want to know what we’re doing, it’s very much steeped in the world of the comics, but it also has a life of its own and that’s really what television and our films really do is that we take the best….We hope and we’re very confident that this is the beginning of something that’s very exciting on Netflix."

During an interview with Reddit yesterday Idris Elba (Thor: The Dark World,Luther) was asked: How quickly can we get you signed on to play Luke Cage for the Netflix series?
His only response: ”Uh, I think there’s an actor already signed on for it, fortunately or unfortunately.”
Now that I have you in a good mood, let’s talk about Daredevil.
Filming has been great. I can’t really talk about specifics. Really. But I can tell you it’s all working. It’s all gritty. Everything is really impressive. They seem to know what they’re doing over at Marvel. I think ever since Downey and [Jon] Favreau did Iron Man and proved that comic book movies could be really cool they’ve just embraced that and taken it to the next level. They keep knocking it out of the park. This Netflix series that we’re filming right now, it’s going to be so amazing to watch. We’re doing these incredible, iconic scenes every single day. I have the best character; I play one of the best characters I’ve read in a long time. I haven’t had this much fun with a role for many years.
i’m just gonna put this out there…i hate hawkeye
never been a fan of him
Okay, but his comic on point tho…….
