DaredevilLatino Review is reporting that Drew Goddard, director of The Cabin in the Woods, will no longer be involved with Daredevil, the planned Netflix series from Marvel Studios. Goddard was supposed to write and direct the pilot episode as well as act as showrunner and executive producer for the 13-episode series.

Marvel.com confirmed Latino Review by announcing that Stephen S. DeKnight, creator of the hit Starz series “Spartacus,” has taken over as executive producer and showrunner on the Netflix series. Apparently Goddard pulled out of “Daredevil” back in March when he was assigned to Sony’s planned Sinister Six spin-off movie, although there’s been no announcement of it being greenlit with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 having been in theaters for over a month. Goddard did write the first two episodes before departing and will still be involved as an executive producer.

Marvel Studios is currently looking for a director for the pilot episode of what’s planned to be five 13-episode series for Netflix, which will be joined by “Jessica Jones,” “Iron Fist” and “Luke Cage.”
