Daredevil Left His Heart In San Francisco
Mark Waid and Chris Samnee Will Get It Back
He'll be back in New York in time for the Netflix deal...
Mark Waid' and Chris Samnee's phenomenally fun run on Daredevil only disappointed fans when Marvel announced it was coming to an end.
Much like Steven Moffatt on Doctor Who, it turns out that maybe Marvel lied. Well, this way certainly generates more excitement!
Waid and Samnee will re-team to relaunch Daredevil, returning the character to San Francisco. Returning, you ask?
Why, yes. Because in the early 1970s Matt Murdock and Natasha Romanov romanced there for a long run when the title was Daredevil and the Black Widow. Marvel flirted with San Francisco a few times -- sending Peter Parker out there to follow up on sightings of Daredevil that led to a team-up with the Werewolf by Night, and then the longest running San Francisco super-team -- The Champions -- operated out of San Francisco helmed by, naturally, the Black Widow.
But now The Shroud protects the city, and Daredevil might be horning in on his territory. It doesn't matter -- Waid and Samnee are a great creative team and this is another exciting move in the Marvel NOW strategy.
