    Marvel's Daredevil, or simply Daredevil, is an American web television series created for Netflix by Drew Goddard, based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. It is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), sharing continuity with the films of the franchise, and is the first in a series of shows that will lead up to a Defenders crossover miniseries. The series is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios, DeKnight Productions and Goddard Textiles, with Steven S. DeKnight serving as showrunner on the first season, Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez taking over for the second, and Goddard serving as consultant.

    Season 2 is said to have a fight scene that pays homage to the hallway fight from episode two.
    "In terms of this season, there are a number of really good fights," Daredevil star Charlie Cox told a group of reporters at a TCA press event. "There is one in particular that I'm really excited about because it's kind of like an homage to that scene, but it's almost like that scene on crack."

    I know that that hallway fight scene is pretty awesome and the "iconic" part of that series it seems at this part. But, to be honest, I think I liked other fights better. The one-tracking-shot thing is filmmaker porn and really awesome, but it kinda feels like we're seeing so much of it now that it's lost the luster. I feel like I see it everywhere now. I dunno. But I did like that scene, even if I think I liked other fights in that series more.

    I want to re-watch this. If only I didn't have a million other things I also wanted to watch. ¡Too much media!

    Do you watch Agents of Shield? They did something like that as well, which did look pretty awesome, but can definitely see the point of it being everywhere. My plan is to re-watch this before season two comes out in March. Haha a couple of months should give me enough time.

    @Eric Wilson I haven't been watching Agents of SHIELD, I've got too much other stuff on my plate and I watched like the first season or so of that and it was an absolute chore to get through. I really disliked it.

    I feel like I've seen it over and over again recently ever since that 'True Detective' episode. I think 'Boogie Nights' may have one of my favorite uses of it, but that second fight in 'Creed' was pretty damn awesome as well. I still like the technique, I just feel like I've seen it a lot lately and that the hallway fight wasn't my favorite in Daredevil.

    Shield was quite the chore for the first season for me, and I almost didn't get through it. I actually somewhat enjoy it now, but it's one of those shows I have on in the background while I'm working on other things.

    Which 'True Detective' episode are you referring to? I'm blanking. Also, I really, really need to see 'Creed.'

    @Jason Tate Ahh! Surprised I forgot about that. I hope if this show does get a season three, that it's better than the second.

    I think that's what everyone hopes. Haha.

    I kept hoping as the season went on, it would redeem itself, but just never did. Definitely a big letdown coming off a fantastic first season.

    That last line is great.

    Definitely. Granted it is a trailer, so I'm sure the story will get branched out and that was just a clip, but interesting that the way they presented it, that Matt was well aware of who Elektra is. (This coming from someone who doesn't know much about the Daredevil mythos).

    I'm excited! Haha. I am curious to see what they do.

    I'm really excited to see Jon's portrayal of Punisher. I'm one of the few (apparently) that liked Thomas Jane, and I didn't see Punisher: War Zone so no opinion on Ray Stevenson. Glad they're heading in a new direction and not going with Jane again, like there was a movement to recast him. Berthenal just makes too much sense not to cast.

    Does Gerard Way like Daredevil? It seems like it should be up his alley. And you're basically GW encyclopedia.

    He mentioned him in an interview he did when he was talking about the Spider Man comic he did so I'm guessing so. He seems to like most things to do with comic books, ha. I'm not sure if he's seen this show though.

    "Q: It must have been fun to play in this universe and create your own take on the character with only the most basic connection to the larger Spider-Man universe.

    A: It was thrilling! I just took the basic concepts of Spider-Man and then I looked deeper into it. I thought about the radioactive spider: "What if it was more than just a bite? What if a bite was a psychic link and the spider stayed part of the story?" That brought up a little girl who loses her dad. Then I drew the spider suit. And then right away I drew Daredevil, because I thought to myself, if I'm only getting going to get to write one Marvel comic, I'm going to put Daredevil in it as well."

    I enjoyed the Thomas Jane one as well, but never saw War Zone. Still may have to go back and check it out at some point. Very excited to see what they do with the character in Daredevil though.

    Excited for season 2. I like the idea of the Punisher so this should be good.
