Marvel’s ‘Daredevil’ Trailer: The Man Without Fear is Reborn on Netflix
After months and months of waiting, Marvel’s Netflix ‘Daredevil’ has at last shown its true face, debuting the first of the ‘Defenders’ with a full-length trailer. We’ve seen photos and footage of Marvel’s Man Without Fear, but what amazing feats does ‘Daredevil’ accomplish with its first full-length sneak peak trailer?
Our first look at Marvel’s new ‘Daredevil’ series doesn’t feature ol’ Hornhead in his red (or yellow) glory just yet, but does show off Matt Murdock as a tormented Catholic looking to make his city a better place. We also get brief looks at supporting characters like Wilson Fisk, Stick, Foggy Nelson and Karen Page, while the gritty action seems very much on par with Frank Miller’s original run on ‘Daredevil,’ costume and all.
Also announced to stream in 4K, Marvel’s ‘Daredevil’ is described by Netflix thusly:
Blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) fights 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 Daredevil is one of the best known properties of the street level heroes and will be the the first of four epic live-action adventure series (Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Marvel’s Iron Fist, and Marvel’s Luke Cage, all leading up to the teaming of the main characters in Marvel’s The Defenders) that delves into the backstory of how Matt Murdock evolves into Daredevil.
Featuring ‘Boardwalk Empire’ star Charlie Cox in the titular role of Matt Murdock, the cast of Marvel’s 2015 series ‘Daredevil’ also includes ‘True Blood’ hottie Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, ‘The Leftovers’ star Scott Glenn as Matt’s sensei Stick, ‘Falling Skies’ alum Peter Shinkoda in an unknown role, ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ star Elden Henson as Matt’s best friend Foggy Nelson, Vincent D’Onofrio as Kingpin Wilson Fisk, and Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple / Night Nurse.
Not only that, but the show’s New York Comic-Con 2014 panel revealed the inclusion of Vondie Curtis-Hall as reporter Ben Urich, ‘Man of Steel’ star Ayelet Zurer as Vanessa (not yet Fisk), and Bob Gunton as Leland Owlsley (The Owl).
Apart from taking place in the same cinematic universe as ‘The Avengers’ and ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,’ we know that each Marvel Netflix series will shoot 13 episodes, culminating in an eight-episode team-up with ‘The Defenders’ miniseries and bringing the total to 60 episodes (to start). Drew Goddard was replaced as ‘Daredevil’ showrunner by ‘Spartacus’ vet Stephen DeKnight, though Goddard remains a consultant.
‘Daredevil’ will premiere all 13 Netflix episodes on April 10, but what say you? Does our first look at the new Marvel series live up to the hype? Watch the trailer again above, and tell us what you sense by the first sneak peek of our new Man Without Fear!
