Frank Miller Hasn’t Watched Daredevil, But He’s ‘Looking Forward to It’

Frank Miller’s work on Marvel’s Daredevil comics are central to the hit Netflix adaptation, but the acclaimed creator admits he’s yet to watch the television drama.

“I haven’t had a chance yet,” he told Vulture, adding, “Yeah, I’m looking forward to it.”

That stance is notably different from Miller’s tone ahead of Daredevil’s second season, which introduced Elodie Yung as Elektra, a character he introduced in 1981, only to kill her off the following year. “They can do whatever they want,” he said in 2015, “that is not her.”

He subsequently indicated he had little desire to watch the show, explaining, “I didn’t make up Batman, I didn’t make up Daredevil, I have no right to be possessive, but once I’ve worked on a character, it’s hard to see any other way than my way. By and large, most of what they do, I’ll just get grouchy if I see it. So I tend not to look at it, except for few exceptions.”

Miller more recently had high praise for director Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman, calling it the “crown jewel of superhero movies.”

Daredevil, played by Charlie Cox, and Elektra, portrayed by Elodie Yung, will next be seen Aug. 18 on Netflix’s The Defenders, alongside Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Finn Jones as Danny Rand, Sigourney Weaver as Alexandra, Eka Darville as Malcolm Ducasse, Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth, Scott Glenn as Stick, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple and Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing.
