Part of Frank Miller’s meteoric rise to superstar status in comics was his run on Daredevil for Marvel. He reimagined the character as a grim and gritty defender of New York’s Hell’s Kitchen, and the noir influence has been imprinted on Matt Murdock ever since.
Marvel’s Daredevil series on Netflix certainly draws from Miller’s influence. You may think that would pique the creator’s interest in seeing the series, but it turns out that not the case. He told a crowd at the Comic Con Experience in Brazil that he hadn’t watched the series.
Season 2 of Daredevil will introduce Elektra, played by Elodie Yung. Elektra was created by Miller, and killed off in Daredevil #181. Miller is known for being attached to the character, and was upset by Marvel’s decision to bring her back from the dead a decade later. He voiced a pretty strong opinion about her television appearance as well, saying “they can call it whatever you want, but It will not be the real Elektra.”
Miller referred to himself as the “father” of the character, which was met with applause from the room.
Like it or not, Elektra will appear in Daredevil Season 2, coming to Netflix in 2016.
