    While it's sad that Goddard isn't running the thing anymore, S. DeKnight is damn solid IMO. I've enjoyed most of his body of work. I'm not worried for a microsecond.

    He's a good replacement.
    There really is no need to worry about this.

    They've already explained why Goddard dropped out. He's leaving to focus on the Sinister Six movie.

    Same! It's probably too early to say this, but it's going to have one incredibly epic season finale.

    Nah. This is the internet. Uninformed indignation is the coin of the realm.

    Loved 'Spartacus'. But this isn't Ancient Rome filled with back stabbing and political machinations. I wonder what approach he will be taking? I would really like it if he would borrow from the Millar/Bendis stories, and turn the show into a sort of SH meets film noir. It could be an adult (in the purest sense) superhero show.

    Millar or Miller? If you're talking about Frank Miller there's no way it won't be influenced by his work in some way. Almost every single Daredevil story after him has been.

    New York is filled with back stabbing and political machinations though. Daredevil is also a lawyer, throw in ganglords like feuding emperors and it's all kind of the same.

    I read what he's done, and it doesn't give me a lot of confidence in him doing a gritty street level superhero story.
    Maybe if daredevil had more teenagers and melodrama.
    But, that doesn't mean he won't be great.
