It's Day 3 of New York Comic Con (NYCC) and despite the fact that the con is winding down a bit, Marvel didn't disappoint.
Marvel took the main stage once again but this time to present their latest project, Daredevil.
Marvel’s Executive Vice President and Head of Television Jeph Loeb took the stage as moderator once again. He reiterated how secretive the show has been since it's creation and how excited Marvel was to be working with Netflix.

Next, fans were treated to a special clip of the series before the cast took to the stage. More wonderful clips were shown, including one that featured Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple. The clips allowed the audience to take a glimpse to the show's dark themes and the amazing stunts that fans will be seeing throughout the show.
Jeph Loeb also allowed the fans to ask questions, something that he said was a promise to the cast.
One fan specifically asked if there was going to be any connection to Daredevil
and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
to which Jeph Loeb responded, "First, that is a level seven question," until confirming that it will be connected in some shape or form.
Jeph Loeb also pointed out that this is the first of many series coming from the Marvel and Netflix team up. The others feature Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage and the final one will bring them together in the Defenders series. He also stated that despite many rumors circulating about who is playing who in these series, casting has not started and therefore, any casting that has been "announced" is false.
Charlie Cox who plays Matt Murdock/Daredevil stated that one of the greatest things of the Marvel-Netflix team up is the fact that it gives them more time to show new stuff and focus on more story lines due to the little need for a recap at the beginning of the episode since they will all be uploaded in one day and lack of a cliffhanger since one can simply move on to the next episode whenever necessary.
As fan questions continued, two fans stood out to thank Marvel for two separate occasions. The first woman thanked Loeb for helping her get an exclusive con piece at San Diego Comic Con a couple of years ago. Loeb said he was touched that she remembered that and that he would do anything for the fans. The second, a young boy, came out to thank Loeb and the cast for creating the show as he said he connects with the character so much. "I have a problem and he has a problem too," he said. He continued on by saying that the Daredevil
comic series has helped him to become accepting of his condition and himself and that now he is excited to connect with the show as well. The crowd gave a big ovation to the boy for his bold statement. The cast was touched by his speech.
Loeb continued the panel by saying that the idea of a Daredevil
show has been something that he's been wanting to do for a while, but not something that he ever thought would be possible. He also thanked the city of New York for welcoming the show, especially during its filming.
Fans were excited to see more clips for the show, especially the reshowing of the first one with some extra scenes being added.
