Charles Soule Comments on Upcoming "Daredevil" Run

Writer Charles Soule commented for the first time about his upcoming run on "Daredevil" with artist Ron Garney, which launches this October as part of Marvel Comics' "All-New, All-Different" line of titles.

In a series of tweets, Soule conveyed his excitement over his long-thought-about take on the character, the honor of following Mark Waid and Chris Samnee's highly acclaimed and successful run, how his background in law comes into play and more.

Although announced Wednesday via Marvel's list of slated titles and creative teams for the "All-New, All-Different" line, Soule personally confirmed his involvement tweeting, "So, I am writing Daredevil. I would have commented earlier, but I wasn't actually sure if it had been officially announced."

Following @markwaid and @ChrisSamnee is no joke, but @rongarney and I will do our damnedest to carry the torch. (And yes, pun intended.)

I'll talk more about my take down the road, but I've been thinking about my version of Daredevil for years and years. This will be that.

It won't be She-Hulk, but my lawyerly background will still come into play in a big way. A very different kind of legal feel.

Soule also tweeted about artist Garney's work on the book saying, "dear god, wait until you see his pages. Beautifully fluid. Dark. Whole bottles of ink being used," and gave readers information on upcoming villains: "First two planned bad guys are new. And weird."

Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso also shared a little bit of info on Friday about the upcoming run, saying that Soule and Garney are "going to leap headfirst into noir -- delving into the darker corners of Murdock's world without getting lost in it."

As for the character standing next to Daredevil on the cover -- dubbed "the devil's apprentice -- Soule debunks the most prevalent rumor.

Also - THAT IS NOT GAMBIT. More on that fellow soon.
