I remember their sad attempt with "the trial of the incredible hulk", and it was juste ridiculous.
And as for him not being "different enough" (from what, Batman ?), DD is a blind lawyer with super senses, a gift (since it's hard to lie to him) and a curse (when his loved ones died in his arm and he percieved everything, what can be more traumatic than that ?)
Plus he is the "core", the "central point" and the most "known" street level hero now that Spiderman is under Sony control. He is the one that can link everything, from the classical street level superheroes like Luke Cage and the vigilante who doesn't mix well with other superheroes because they only target traditionnal and non powered crime boss (like the Punisher, what other Superheroes worked really with him except DD ?)
When Marvel talks about doing "different" they mean from everything that's been done before and everything they've done before. Look at everything they talk about as being planned for the MCU. You've got an epic space adventure with a rag-tag team of heroes (GotG), a genius scientist who can shrink and communicate with ants and who creates one of the biggest villains in Marvel's rogue gallery (Ant-Man), a movie about the Sorcerer Supreme (Dr Strange), a group of beings who are genetically tampered with forms of humans whose sole purpose was to fight the Skrulls (Inhumans). This is what Marvel means by "different." Nothing against the character of Daredevil but a blind lawyer by day and crime fighter by night doesn't really fit the criteria right now.
