Daredevil & MCU Won’t Immediately Connect

Out doing promo rounds for Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” in London this week, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige offered a brief update on the company’s “Daredevil” TV series which is slated to debut on Netflix next year.

Feige says unlike “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” which heavily tied to events in the Marvel Studios films right from the get go, the producers of “Daredevil”aren’t planning on linking the show to the Marvel Cinematic Universe just yet. He tells Wired:

“I think they’re being very smart about that, approaching the shows the way we approach movies, which is to focus on the core project, make sure it’s as great as it can be, beginning, middle, and end.

Then they see if there are places where it makes sense for some interweaving of continuity. Right now, their goal, and they’re in production on the Daredevil series, is focusing on making it the best incarnation of Daredevil that has ever existed.”

Marvel’s Joe Quesada previously confirmed that all of the four Netflix shows are set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In related news, Peter Shinkoda has scored major recurring role in the series as a character named Hachiro.
