New TV Spot Hints At Daredevil’s Origin; Five Character Posters Arrive


Daredevil is the first of five planned TV series cooked up by Marvel and Netflix, and it’s set to drop all of its 13 episodes very soon. Destined to commandeer television sets across the globe and lead thousands – if not more – of workers to call in sick, this grittier take on Matt Murdock’s story has already captured the public’s imagination.

Through a mixed bag of enticing teasers and stunning motion posters, the stage has been set. And now, thanks to a crop of new character posters and a cheeky TV spot there’s further evidence as to why you should start concocting a passable fake cough.

The gallery of character-centric posters are a nice touch. When laid out side by side they form a larger banner of the Hell’s Kitchen landscape, previously spotted in the last motion picture poster. They include Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple aka Night Nurse, and Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk aka the Kingpin. Most of that crew can be spotted in the newest TV trailer that’s packed with fresh footage honing in on Matt Murdock’s origins before he transformed into Daredevil.

You can check out the Daredevil TV teaser for yourself above and the new collection of posters in the gallery below. The full 13 episodes of season one arrive on Netflix April 10.

“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.
