Some more Daredevil news came on Twitter within the past day courtesy of showrunner Steven DeKnight.
For starters, DeKnight confirmed that Drew Goddard will no longer be directing the Daredevil pilot, as he is “busy with Sinister Six.”
And what about directing, himself? After all, DeKnight has directed before, with episodes of Angel, Dollhouse, and Smallville among his credits. In fact, the “Justice” proto-Justice League episode of Smallville was directed by Mr. DeKnight. (So was the exploding baby episode, but again, we won’t keep bringing that up… oh, who are we kidding, of course we will!)
Here’s what he said when asked about directing:
No, but it's in great hands . I'll get behind the camera later in season. RT @Lumetian: will you be directing the Daredevil pilot?

Marvel’s Daredevil series for Netflix is making so many announcements lately, we can only assume that filming will be starting soon.
