12/14 - Charles Soule Interview

If you haven't read DAREDEVIL #596 yet, the following info is a spoiler, so be warned!

So, the end of DAREDEVIL #596 has an interesting development, and Charles Soule talks to Marvel.com about Matt Murdock's new job.

A little snippet:

"I’m trying to set things up in this story as closely as I can to the way things actually work in City Hall. The truth is, there aren’t a ton of checks on the power of the mayor in New York. More or less, if the mayor wants the city to shift in a certain direction, or has policies he or she wants implemented, then the city’s various departments and agencies tend to go that way. So, Fisk has all the power, and Matt Murdock has very little – at least in a political sense. However, he’s got his mind, and of course he’s got all the abilities of Daredevil… so he’s still got a fighting chance."

2017-12-13-DAREDEVIL-600-Interview

12/13 - DAREDEVIL 600 Interview

The milestone DAREDEVIL 600 is coming in March, and ComicBook.com has an exclusive first look of the cover by Dan Mora.

Writer Charles Soule had this to say:

"Well, without getting into too many specifics, it certainly features the biggest villain in Daredevil’s career as a crimefighter – the Kingpin of Crime, Wilson Fisk," Soule says. "As we move into #600, we’ve been dealing with a huge story in which Fisk managed to get himself elected as Mayor of New York. This has made Matt Murdock’s life hell in a hundred different ways – among other things, there’s a warrant out for Daredevil’s arrest, his work with the DA’s office is getting tons of pressure from Fisk, and even more than that, he just doesn’t feel like the city is his anymore. So, Daredevil #600 has Matt Murdock fighting his greatest enemy literally for the fate of the city he loves, in multiple arenas. Doesn’t get much bigger."

11/30 - Daredevil: Legal (and Moral?) Vigilante

The Ohio State Journal of Criminal Law has published a new essay written by Stephen E. Henderson from the University of Oklahoma College of Law.

The title is "Daredevil: Legal (and Moral?) Vigilante and Henderson analyzes the "moral vigilantism" of Matt Murdock and his activities as a superhero.

Abstract

In 1964, the comic world was introduced to its first physically disabled practicing attorney: Matt Murdock. Initially a proud graduate of “State College” and later more impressively pedigreed as a graduate of either Columbia or Harvard Law, Murdock supplemented his day job as attorney with a side of vigilante justice as Daredevil.

In 2003, Murdock became the only attorney superhero to appear as the title character in a movie. A truly awful movie, yes, but a movie all the same. And then in 2015, thanks to the talents of Drew Goddard, Murdock became the star of a terrific television series.

But while it makes for good comics and television, does it make for good law? Good policy? Is there such a thing as moral vigilantism, and, if so, is Matt Murdock a moral vigilante? What of his foil, the Punisher, or the police officer who comes around to assisting Daredevil’s endeavors? I propose preliminary answers to these questions, including considering vigilantism as theorized by Paul and Sarah Robinson, Les Johnston, and Travis Dumsday. Their metrics are helpful and illuminating, but not, I think, a fully satisfying articulation of what constitutes moral vigilantism. And if we cannot adequately discern moral vigilantism in fictional characters, we will fare no better in the real world. There remains more good work to be done—and more good comics to be written.

The complete essay is available to download at the SSRN site below.

2017-11-27-Wilson-Bethel-Daredevil-Season-3

11/27 - Wilson Bethel cast in Daredevil Season 3

Variety is reporting that actor Wilson Bethel has been cast in Daredevil Season 3 in an unknown role, but is considered to be an FBI agent who will be at the centre of the Daredevil/Kingpin conflict.

Bethel has appeared in "Hart of Dixie" on the CW as Wade Kinsella, and a number of other shows like "Young and the Restless", "Generation Kill" and "Bates Motel".

Is this FBI agent role the Sin-Eater that was rumoured a few month ago? Is he Bullseye? Is he Special Agent Harold Driver? Or is he a combination of all of them?

UPDATE:

2017-11-08-Soule-Landini-Mayor-Fisk-Interview

11/08 - Soule and Landini Interview

The Mayor Fisk storyline has begun in DAREDEVIL and Diamond has a new interview with Charles Soule and Stefano Landini.

I’ve been working with a bunch of different themes in my Daredevil run, but one of them has been that Matt has been pretty isolated, purposely. When we started all the way back in 2015, he’d left his girlfriend Kirsten MacDuffie behind, as well as his best friend, Foggy Nelson. He had a big plan he was trying to put together, which culminated in Issue 25 – that just hit shelves, and was the final chapter of the “Supreme” arc. But now, Matt’s facing a scenario in the Legacy arc that he really can’t handle alone – and the title of the first story, “Mayor Fisk,” should suggest how bad it’s going to get. Matt’s lost his city.
