Marvel Studios had comic fans stirring in excitement over the announcement that it was bringing characters Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage and others to life via a deal with Netflix. Now, a trailer for the Daredevil series has hit the Web, and teases some prime action for the blind but gifted superhero.
The Marvel and Netflix partnership was announced last year, and on the heels of Marvel’s successful stint on the small screen with ABC’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Daredevil stars Charlie Cox in the main role of attorney Matt Murdock, a blind man with heightened senses that make up for his loss of sight. Murdock moonlights at night as the Daredevil and looks to be a reboot from Marvel movie of the same name where Ben Affleck played the lead role.
Set in New York, the trailer opens up with the city’s skyline with Murdock sitting in a confessional booth. Although it sounds as if Murdock is asking for forgiveness for his sins, he’s actually asking the priest to pardon his actions as he embarks on his crime-fighting mission. Struggling with taking the law into his own hands by way of his gifts and upholding the law in his daytime job, Daredevil walks the fine line justice.
Daredevil will be available for live streaming on April 10.
