“Marvel’s Daredevil” is a live action series that follows the journey of attorney Matt Murdock, who in a tragic accident was blinded as a boy but imbued with extraordinary senses. Murdock sets up practice in his old neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen, New York where he now fights against injustice as a respected lawyer by day and masked vigilante at night.
I have an optimistic feeling about this series because only few people knows the story of Daredevil compared to that of Spider-man, The Avengers and the other grandeur character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Launching Daredevil’s own series will give us deeper understanding of the character, not only on his origins and how he evolves, but with the rise of his nemesis as well, from the looks of it, Marvel’s DD is giving us the different approach in the “superhero genre” storytelling, which the main character focus more on the human emotional level plus the dark gritty tone of Hell’s Kitchen captures my senses to look forward in this much awaited series this year.
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. Also starring are Ayelet Zurer as Vanessa Marianna, Bob Gunton as Leland Owlsley, Toby Leonard Moore as Wesley, Vondie Curtis-Hall as Ben Urich.
Daredevil premieres on Netflix in April 10 2015.
