Marvel has officially released the DAREDEVIL stills that were featured in the most recent publication of Empire Magazine, giving us an even better look at the images and Daredevil's first costume.
A few more quotes from Steven S. DeKnight, the showrunner on DAREDEVIL, taken from Empire Magazine have also surfaced online. A lot of fans have been curious just how dark DAREDEVIL will go as Marvel hasn't really gone too dark with any of their properties. We've known for a little bit now that the show has been given a TV MA rating (it's posted on the Netflix page for those curious), so we had a feeling it would be pretty dark. But according toe DeKnight, the show will "kiss right up" to an R-rating.
"Netflix, of course, they don't have a problem with pushing it," DeKnight said. "I mean, they go anywhere from G to NC-17. But the Marvel brand, that's a little different.They're obviously not comfortable going that far with it, though they've allowed us to push it much further than you've seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since starting with Iron Man. It is much more geared towards adults. We call it PG-16. We don't quite get to R, but we kiss right up to it."That, along with the teaser trailer, should help to ease the worry of fans fearing the show wouldn't go dark enough.
