Steven DeKnight dished on his Daredevil Netfilx series and the upcoming Defenders hero team show. 

Amidst all the hype for GothamThe Flash and Agent Carter, you can be forgiven for forgetting there’s a Daredevil show in the works as well.

The Daredevil series is going to be on Netflix, followed by individual shows for Marvel superheroes Jessica Jones, Luke “Power Man” Cage, and Iron Fist, and then an Avengers-style team-up with all four characters, titled Defenders. The first series won’t premiere until summer 2015, but Daredevil showrunner Steven DeKnight has begun to share a few details on Twitter.

Or not sharing any information, depending on the question.

Since Daredevil and the rest of the Defenders shows are Marvel Studios properties, they’ll be sure to tie in with the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Unfortunately Marvel tends to keep a tight lid on spoilers, so DeKnight was cagey about how Daredevil would link to other movies and TV shows. However, he did assure a fan that there will definitely be several easter eggs in the show.

Daredevil’s release date hasn’t officially been announced, but it’s likely to be in May 2015. That means it will overlap with the release date for Avengers: Age of Ultron, and may include some kind of crossover event like with Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Could Daredevil wind up with a spoiler warning for a movie that’s still in theaters?
