Drew Goddard is getting ready to tackle the Man Without Fear. TheWrap reports that the Cabin in the Woods helmer is in talks to write Marvel Studios and Netflix’s upcoming “Daredevil” series, one of several shows that will build to a crossover miniseries, “The Defenders.”
Other planned series include “Jessica Jones,” “Iron Fist” and “Luke Cage,” with the epic unfolding over multiple years of original programming, taking Netflix members deep into the gritty world of heroes and villains of Hell’s Kitchen, New York. Netflix has committed to a minimum of four, thirteen episodes series and the culminating mini-series event that reimagines a dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.
Goddard has had a long connection with Marvel’s The Avengers director Joss Whedon. In addition to working together on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel,” the pair collaborated on the screenplay to Cabin in the Woods. Goddard’s other credits include writing work on World War Z, Cloverfield and Bad Robot’s “Alias” and “LOST.”
