Daredevil is produced and developed by Drew Goddard, of Cabin In The Woods-fame, and it has Steven S. DeKnight, of Starz’ Spartacus-fame, as a showrunner. The show stars Charlie Cox, known for Stardust & Boardwalk Empire, as the titular character – Vincent D’Onofrio as Kingpin – Deborah Ann Woll as the classic Daredevil-love interest Karen Page – and Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple.

Thus this show premieres 14 days prior to the Avengers: Age Of Ultron wide-release in Northern Europe, and two days prior to Game of Thrones on HBO – set your schedule accordingly.
