Marvel’s Netflix ‘Daredevil’ Reveals First Episode Titles and Directors
Little over a month from its full release, and even after a first trailer, Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil series remains heavily under wraps. That veil may soon start to lift however, as the inaugural episodes of the Man Without Fear’s new TV incarnation have been given fitting titles, and directors to boot.
Per the British Board of Film Classification (h/t ComicBook.com), the first three episodes of Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil have been identified as “Into the Ring,” “Cut Man” and “Rabbit in a Snow Storm.” Directed by The Strain helmer Phil Abraham, the first two titles clearly allude to a boxing theme (and likely Matt Murdock’s father), while we’d guess that the third installment under director Adam Kane references that noticeably white painting we’ve seen Wilson Fisk transfixed by on several occasions.
Streaming all 13 episodes in 4K on April 10, here’s now Netflix describes Marvel’s Daredevil:
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 breakout 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’ve included the full trailer again below, but how excited are you for April 10 to bring our first full episodes of Marvel’s Daredevil?
