Marvel’s ‘Daredevil’ Explores Origins and Kingpins in Two New Full-Length Trailers
This week may yet prove the longest in recent memory, as the home stretch before Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil arrives in its entirety on April 10. We’ve seen the early episodes (and loved them), but even we haven’t seen all of the new footage brought to light by two brand-new full-length trailers. Can it be Friday morning already?
Our first fresh look at Marvel’s Daredevil goes heavy on the origin story, as we see Scott Glenn’s Stick imparting wisdom on a young newly-blind Matt Murdock, urging him to channel anger and frustration into technique. The second spot doubles down on Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin, as Fisk espouses that Hell’s Kitchen needs to die before being reborn, simultaneously terrifying anyone in the way, including poor Foggy Nelson.
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 Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, The Leftovers star Scott Glenn as Matt’s sensei Stick, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay star Elden Henson as Matt’s best friend Foggy Nelson, and Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple / Night Nurse.
The show’s New York Comic-Con 2014 panel also 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), along with a number of recent supporting additions. 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).
We’re just days away, so salivate over the latest Daredevil trailers above and below, and hang on until the Friday reveal!
