Over the weekend came word from the trades that the second season of Marvel and Netflix’s “Daredevil” would be going slightly earlier than the mid-April bow of the show’s first season.
Now, BirthMoviesDeath suggests that a specific date has been set – March 25th, the Good Friday over the Easter Holiday Weekend. It also happens to be the same day that rival DC’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” opens in cinemas.
No confirmation from Netflix or Marvel has come through about said report, but it has already ignited plenty of tribalism be it Marvel vs. DC or even TV vs. film with a lot of incredibly jaded and reactionary talk in response popping up in either comments or far too hastily penned and under prepared opinion pieces.
Neither production is in direct competition, and the launch of Netflix & Marvel’s “Jessica Jones” opposite the final “The Hunger Games” this past November demonstrated there’s no real audience cannibalisation despite essentially targeting the same demographics.
