Marvel Television and New York Comic Con today announced that fans at next month's convention will get to experience the first cast appearance of the upcoming Netflix original series, Marvel's Daredevil.
Jeph Loeb, Marvel's Head of Television, will lead a panel for Marvel's Daredevil -- which is set and shot completely in New York -- at NYCC on Saturday, October 11 with Marvel's Daredevil show-runner Steve S. DeKnight and the series' cast, including title star Charlie Cox. This will be the first time Marvel's Daredevil cast will be assembled publicly to meet with fans.
Marvel's Daredevil is part of a partnership between Marvel Television, Netflix and the State of New York with all of the new television series being filmed in the streets of New York City. Filming kicked off with Marvel's Daredevil and will continue to include series featuring Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Marvel's The Defenders. The alliance marks the largest film or television production project commitment in the history of New York State and will create 3,000 jobs and produce nearly 60 hours of television.
On Friday, October 10, Marvel Television will present a first look at the second season of its popular animated series Marvel's Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. before its season premiere on Sunday, October 12 (9:00 a.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD.
Then, fans will experience the world premiere of an all-new episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., before it debuts on ABC on Tuesday, October 14th, in a panel moderated by Loeb.
"New York City is home to Marvel and some of the greatest fans in the world, so we ensured that Marvel Television brought its biggest panels ever to this NYCC!," said Jeph Loeb, Marvel's Head of Television. "Not only will fans get to experience our incredible partnership with Netflix as we introduce the cast of Marvel's Daredevil for the first time, but they'll get to see the world premiere of a new Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode and their first look at the future of all their favorite super heroes courtesy of Marvel Animation."
