It's been announced that Drew Goddard has exited the Marvel Netflix Daredevil series with Steven S. DeKnight taking over.

THR reports that Goddard has left Daredevil due to commitments over at Fox Studios with the Amazing Spider-Man franchise and Sinister Six, in which Goddard will write and direct the villains-focused film.

Goddard is stated to be remaining on as a consultant on Daredevil.

Steven S. DeKnight previously served as the showrunner on the Starz Spartacus series for three seasons and worked with Goddard on Joss Whedon's Angel and Buffy the Vampire Slayer as well as Whedon's Dollhouse, and the CW's Smallville.

The Marvel Netflix series also consists of Jessica Drew, Iron Fist and Luke Cage with the series culminating in an Avengers-like mini-series with The Defenders.

The Daredevil Netflix series looks to begin filming this Summer in NYC.
