It’s our first full look at everyone’s favorite attorney by day, vigilante by night. It’s the Unseeing Knight, the Man Without Fear… DAREDEVIL!
On April 10, Marvel will release the first episode of Daredevil, the first of four Netflix series all connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Daredevil will be followed by AKA Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. As you can probably tell from the trailer, these Netflix shows will be oriented towards an older audience. Just like Agents of SHIELD is used to show what clandestine operations are like in a world of superheroes, these Netflix series will show off the heroes that combat the gritty underworld.
Matt Murdock, a.k.a. Daredevil, is one of Marvel Comics most prominent heroes. His comic book origin has him pushing a stranger out of the way of an incoming truck, and being doused in radioactive material in the process. This leaves him blind, but with his other senses heightened to superhuman levels. Going by the outfit, the show will take place at the beginning of his crime-fighting career. I am sure that his reason for becoming a crime fighter will be detailed in the show, so I will hold on that just in case anyone doesn’t know the story.
