April 10th can not come soon enough. Today, Marvel has released a full trailer for upcoming Netflix series Daredevil. So far the casting for this series has been on point. Not only is this talented and well rounded cast but they actually look the part! It's been fun to see the set photos but to finally see these characters in action is incredible.
What makes Daredevil stand out from his Marvel counterparts is how dark it is. This is definitely the other side of The Avengers coin. Also absent from this Marvel production are costumes. There is a nice nod to Frank Miller's The Man Without Fear that features Matt Murdock in black with a bandana around his eyes.
Charlie Cox proves to be a strong Murdock/Daredevil based on this two minute trailer. He is thankfully able to carry over the dark glasses an impressive character that is both intelligent, thoughtful and brooding. Of course to counter him is Vincent D'nofrio as Wilson Fisk a.k.a. The Kingpin. He too also flexes his impressive acting muscles. This Fisk is of course fierce but is also seems haunted, like our protagonist...wounded even.
We'll see the two face off April 10th on Netflix.
