We’re now just a month away from the first season of the Marvel/Netflix Daredevil series that promises to bring the Man Without Fear to TV screens with a darker edge and a bloodier feel. With the episodes approaching quickly, the new trailer has arrived.
The series, from Spartacus man Steven S. DeKnight, gets down and dirty in the world of Hell’s Kitchen, New York, where upstanding but frustrated lawyer Mart Murdock (Charlie Cox) decides that to help save his neighbourhood from a tidal wave of crime and post-Avengers trouble, he’s going to take matters into his own hands. By forming them into fists and dishing out rough justice as a night-time vigilante.
But Matt, as you’ll likely know, has something different from other crime fighters: he’s blind following an accident in childhood, one that also saw him develop heightened senses that let him “see” the world around him in a unique way. He’ll need them, too, as he’s up against Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio), AKA The Kingpin, an organised crime boss who believes his is the right way to clean up the city. Who will win out? And will they be able to tell the difference in between the shades of grey?
With Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Rosario Dawson, Ayelet Zurer, Bob Gunton and Scott Glenn among the cast, all ten episodes of the first Daredevil season arrive on Netflix on April 10. We had an exclusive chat with Cox about the show, which you can find here and there’s more about the series in the current issue of **Empire, on shelves now.
