Netflix’s first collaboration with Marvel Studios, ‘Daredevil’ is due to hit on April 10th and like all Netflix original series, all thirteen episodes will be available at the same time, so you can binge watch the whole thing in one sitting if you want! Or at least in one weekend. Or you can watch an episode a week like a normal TV show. (But nobody does that.)
The series adds another live action hero to Marvel’s ever-growing roster, which includes the various heroes from its Cinematic Universe and its TV spin-offs and now, even includes Spider-Man, thanks to a peace treaty with Sony.
‘Daredevil’ stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock a blind attorney, who secretly has super senses and incredible gymnastics and martial arts abilities, which he uses to protect Hell’s Kitchen, one of the roughest and most crime-ridden neighborhoods of New York. It is executive produced by Steven S. DeKnight, Jeph Loeb and Drew Goddard
In addition to Cox, the cast includes Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk aka The Kingpin of Crime, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, Bob Gunton as Leland Owlsely aka The Owl, Vondie Curtis Hall as Ben Urich, Toby Leonard Moore as The Kingpin’s right hand man Wesley and Ayelet Zurer as Vanessa Fisk.
‘Daredevil’ is the first of four new Marvel/Netflix shows, leading ‘AKA Jessica Jones’, ‘Luke Cage’ and ‘Iron Fist’. All four will tie together and the starring heroes will join forces in a follow-up miniseries ‘The Defenders’.
The newest issue of the UK’s ‘Empire’ magazine has featured ‘Daredevil’ in an article in its newest issue, along with several photos from the pilot episode inside. You can check them out below:
As has already been revealed, Daredevil starts out as a “homemade” hero, wearing essentially store-bought clothes, but by the end of this season, he will adopt a red costume closer to his comic book look.
But nevermind the super suit, it’s the power suit on Matt Murdock that takes center stage on the latest piece of promotion for the series, this motion poster:
Are you getting pumped for the beginning of a whole new annex to Marvel’s live action universe? Do you think these new series will tie into the existing movie and TV universes?
