Undoubtedly one of the major players in the movie and TV industry, Marvel isn’t a studio to comfortably assume that its future properties will simply sell themselves. The marketing strategies set in motion for its big screen efforts as well as its small screen outings are always of the “go-big-or-go-home” variety.
In the case of its forthcoming TV series Daredevil, produced in conjunction with Netflix, the comic book giant continues to impress thanks to its continued teasers, stills and motion posters.
Released via the show’s official Twitter, a brand new motion poster now allows us a look at the titular chappie’s transformation. If you thought the last one was inspired, wait until you set your eyes on this latest version.
The ‘poster’ (which is actually a video) opens on Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) standing before the New York City skyline. As he adjusts his glasses, a bright light silhouettes him against the landscape providing him protection to transform into his alter-ego. A short, sweet teaser that’s more a reminder of the show’s imminent arrival than a revelatory trailer, it’s still worth a watch.
All 13 episodes of Daredevil will air exclusively on Netflix April 10th.
“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”).
