Marvel’s DAREDEVIL is coming to Netflix
Our anticipation for Marvel Studios’ new Netflix series DAREDEVIL is extremely high. Over the weekend New York Comic Con ’14 gave their audience of geeks a first look at footage from the latest awesome production based on the classic super hero also known as “The Man Without Fear”. The reaction was very positive to say the least. It’s clear that this will be another big event for fans of the ever expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe.
What has made Daredevil so intriguing to readers is the fact he’s a local NYC street vigilante much like The Punisher (who he has ties with) which is a sharp contrast against more popular “heroes” like Iron Man or Captain America. There is a “moral grey area of Matt Murdock, being a lawyer by day and a vigilante at night. We lean into him being one bad day from becoming Frank Castle. With Wilson Fisk, you’ll hear an idea and go ‘that’s actually a pretty good idea.’ You’ll root for him sometimes.” says director Steven DeKnight
DAREDEVIL’s 13 episode saga will be followed by other series based on Marvel Comics characters Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. All these shows will culminate in a DEFENDERS team up special. More info will be unveiled in the coming year.
DAREDEVIL stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk/Kingpin, Scott Glenn as “Stick”, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Vondie Curtis Hall as Ben Urich, Bob Gunton as Leland Owlsley and Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page.
“Marvel’s Daredevil” 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.
Marvel’s first original series on Netflix is Executive Produced by series Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (“Spartacus,” “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer,” “Angel”) and Drew Goddard (“Cabin in the Woods,” “Lost,” “Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” in addition to writing the first two episodes of “Marvel’s Daredevil”), along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Smallville,” “Heroes”).
