Marvel's Jeph Loeb Confirms Daredevil Series to Film in July


Speaking with HitFix at yesterday's PaleyFest, Marvel Studio's TV head honcho, Jeph Loeb, gave just a bit of info on the upcoming Netflix series.
According to Loeb, The Man Without Fear series is set to go before the cameras this July. While Marvel announced "summer filming" in NYC about a month ago, we now move closer to a definitive start date for the project.

Loeb also gave an answer to one of my questions: in what order will the rest of the Netflix series proceed? I've assumed that Jessica Jones would follow Daredevil given it's the only other one with a writer at the moment, and Loeb confirmed that and added that Iron Fist would come next, followed by Luke Cage and then The Defenders capstone. I'm still expecting we'll see a lot of crossing over among the show's characters so I'm expecting casting for all the characters to be done at roughly the same time.

I'm very excited for this project. If it works, it really opens the doors for many more of Marvel's vast stable of characters. I've embedded the entire interview below courtesy of HitFix!
