Marvel’s ‘Daredevil’ Teaser Senses First Official Trailer to Come
Merciful Matt Murdock, it’s finally here! After a week of ‘AKA Jessica Jones’ castings, Marvel’s ‘Daredevil’ has finally released its first official footage outside the New York Comic-Con 2014 presentation. Our first look at the new ‘Daredevil’ promises a longer trailer to come, but what can our senses detect of the first snippet?
“I’m just trying to make my city a better place,” claims Charlie Cox’s black-clad ‘Daredevil’ in the first official footage from the new Netflix series. Meanwhile, Murdock detects a struggle echoing through a dingy hallway, before the Man Without Fear charges into the source of the distress, sure to be revealed in the first official trailer on February 4.
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.
We’ll bring you the full trailer tomorrow, but in the meantime, check out the first official Netflix ‘Daredevil’ footage above, and tell us what you want to see when all episodes premiere on April 10!
