The premiere date of Marvel’s Daredevil is looming closer, and in anticipation of the Netflix series debut, Marvel has unveiled a pair of new images. The photos tease alliances that are formed in the series, “some for evil,” and “some for good.” Indeed we see Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin meeting with Wai Ching Ho’s Madame Gao, and then a very official lawyer-y meeting involving Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock and Deborah Ann Woll’s Karen Page, an “enigmatic young woman whose quest for justice sends her crashing into Murdock’s life.”
I’m curious to see how the show balances Murdock’s day job as an attorney with his night job as a crime fighter. The difference between suited lawyer and masked vigilante is vast, so I imagine bridging that gap effectively will be key to the show’s success.
We’ve seen quite a bit from the series thus far and we’re starting to gauge just how different it (hopefully) will be from Marvel’s network TV offerings. But I’m curious to hear what you readers think. Do you see Marvel’s Daredevil finally breaking out of Marvel’s TV funk? Is Netflix the key to extending the Marvel Cinematic Universe beyond the films? Sound off in the comments.
Check out the new Marvel’s Daredevil images below, via Marvel. The series also stars Rosario Dawson, Elden Henson, Ayelet Zurer, Bob Gunton, Scott Glenn, and Peter Shinkoda. All 13 episodes of the first season of Marvel’s Daredevil will debut on Netflix on April 10th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Marvel’s Daredevil:
Blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) fights against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the Super Hero “Daredevil” in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. Produced by Marvel Television and ABC Studios, with executive producers Steven S. DeKnight (Spartacus), Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and Drew Goddard (Cabin In The Woods), the series also stars Rosario Dawson, Vincent D’Onofrio, Deborah Ann Woll and Elden Henson.
