John Paesano has been hired to score Marvel’s upcoming Netflix series Daredevil. The show based on the Marvel Comics character and stars Charlie Cox, Vincent D’Onofrio, Elden Henson, Deborah Ann Woll, Rosario Dawson and Scott Glenn. The series follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods, Cloverfield) and Steven S. DeKnight (Spartacus, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Angel) are executive producing the Marvel Television and ABC Studios with Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Smallville). Daredevil is set to premiere in May 2015 on Netflix.
Paesano has previously scored the film adaptation of The Maze Runner, which is currently playing in theaters. A sequel has recently been greenlit for a release next fall. The composer’s other previous scoring credits include the animated series Dragons: Riders of Berk, NBC’s Crisis and the feature When the Game Stands Tall
