Ahead of tomorrow’s full-length trailer, Marvel and Netflix have debuted the very first teaser for the upcoming Daredevil TV show, which introduces Charlie Cox as series protagonist Matt Murdock.
Much like the streaming service’s other heavy-hitters — House of Cards, Orange is the New Black — the hotly-anticipated show will debut all thirteen of its hour-long episodes simultaneously, teeing up the perfect marathoning opportunity to tide us all over to Marvel’s cinematic showdown in the summer.
Lawyer by day, crime-fighting superhero by night, Charlie Cox’s titular character has been through the wringer over the past few years largely thanks to Ben Affleck’s misjudged interpretation back in 2003. Now, almost twelve years later, Netflix’s TV show is poised to bring the persona back in a big way as Marvel looks to strengthen its presence in the small screen space, going up against the likes of The Flash and Arrow in the process.
Marvel’s Daredevil is slated to premiere exclusively on Netflix on April 10. Check back tomorrow when we’ll have a full analysis of all the ins and outs of the show’s full-length trailer.
“Marvel’s Daredevil” follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. The series stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson with Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple and Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk.
Marvel’s first original series on Netflix is Executive Produced by series Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (“Spartacus,” “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer,” “Angel”) and Drew Goddard (“Cabin in the Woods,” “Lost,” “Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” in addition to writing the first two episodes of “Marvel’s Daredevil”), along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” “Lost”).
