Marvel said today that Drew Goddard will write and direct the first episode of Daredevil, the Marvel Television series that will air on Netflix in 2015 as part of a wide-ranging live-action deal between those companies. He will stay on as showrunner/executive producer of the 13-episode series, one of four in the works under the deal including projects on fellow Marvel characters Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage. The deal was expected. Goddard’s credits include writing Cloverfield, co-writing and directing Cabin In The Woods and Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and he adapted the Robopocalypse pic that’s on hold at DreamWorks. He and Lost cohort Damon Lindelof came aboard toward the end of writing the Brad Pitt-starrer World War Z to forge a new ending to the zombie pic.
