I tell him something and the audience at that point doesn't know what it is. I'm of course saying these very stupid, mundane and silly things in his ear and trying to make him crack a smile. One thing that will happen is he'll have to realize how much he loved that man, and how grateful he is for everything he did. This was an event you knew was in your future from the moment you signed on for Daredevil. Plus, there's talk about making a show that's enjoyable for not just the fans of the other shows, but also for people who haven't seen any of the shows.
Early on in particular, there were some reintroductions that people who watched the show, if it was done poorly, could have found boring. The other thing as well, and this is all technical stuff, but my feeling is that since they have all of these other shows — Daredevil having a season three, and Jessica Jones and Luke Cage having a season two — all of these stories have to time out, if that makes sense.
[Warning: this story contains full spoilers for Marvel's The Defenders.] The Devil of Hell's Kitchen is dead — or so the world thinks.
Hopefully that means it's out in 2018, but it's not confirmed yet.
The scene-stealing redhead has been pretty great at keeping her private life under wraps, but her love life remains pretty intriguing.
Get to know the ins and outs of this queen of hearts!
In the comics, Danny takes on the Daredevil mantle for a little while. We had a lot of fun on the day, trying to make up all sorts of stupid stuff. For me, that becomes more and more ridiculous as the episodes carry on, but it's insight into the head space he's in. The way I like to think about the Matt and Elektra relationship is it's the superhero version of the very toxic love relationship you have in your 20s, where you're on-again off-again for two years, and you never quite get over that person. He doesn't have a lot of time to process that death on the show. I'm imagining it's something that when the dust settles, he'll have to revisit that grief. I thought [showrunner] Marco Ramirez and Douglas Petrie, it was very tricky for them.
Are you comfortable with Finn Jones running around as the Devil of Hell's Kitchen if Matt needs some time on the mend? (Laughs.) I remember trying to say things [that would break him], because obviously he has to keep a very straight face. It's weird, because she does begin to remember things. Part of you is always with that one great true love you had, even though it was always doomed and it was never going to work. At the same time, the relationship with Stick was a difficult one for Matt. Maybe it will be paradoxically quite freeing to him, to not be constantly wondering if Stick is going to show up again at the most inopportune moment. I had no concept of how these four shows would come together and what it would feel like, and what the tone would feel like. They're obviously familiar with Daredevil, but then they had to become very comfortable writing these other three characters, who they hadn't been writing yet.
