UPDATE – JAN 7, 2016 Daredevil will be released March 18, a week before Batman Vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice
When Daredevil was announced as a Netflix original series, there was equal parts hope and trepidation. Netflix had a strong track record with original series like House Of Cards and Orange Is The New Black, but the Devil Of Hell’s Kitchen previous outing in a mediocre 2003 film had some fans worried. Those worries were put to rest rather quickly when Daredevil debuted April 2015. Universal acclaim and widespread appeal made Daredevil one of Netflix biggest hits in their original content offerings and another great effort by Marvel Studios.
Now it appears that Marvel Studios is stepping up their dominance of superhero media by looking to have the second season of the highly anticipated series on March 25. Now if the date seems somewhat familiar, that is the same day Warner Bros. is releasing Batman Vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice. This very interesting news is being reported by ComicBook.com and has yet to be confirmed by Marvel Studios or Disney, but it makes some sense as Daredevil was originally slated to release in April 2016 and it’s release was moved to March but no date was given.
Initially Batman Vs Superman was moved from May 2016 to March 2016 to avoid Captain America: Civil War, but it seems Marvel Studios wants to make sure the fans know that they can come from multiple fronts and that Warner Bros. knows it. For the fans, however, 2016 is looking to be a banner year for anyone who is a fan of the genre.
