At this point, many fans of Marvel’s Daredevil series on Netflix have already binged their way through all 13 episodes of the recently released second season, and are desperately craving another fix of the gritty superhero drama. Fortunately, the Internet has a way of providing when it comes to these kind of things … in its own, special way, of course.
For anyone who has ever wondered what the opening sequence from Daredevil would look like as an old-school video game, complete with a MIDI version of the musical theme, there’s a video for that.
The 85-second video, entitled Daredevil Netflix Pixel Intro (Demolidor), is the creation of Portuguese-language graphic design and animation team “doisDI,” with Luiz Carlos Teixeira credited with the art and animation for the project. Fans of classic, 16-bit video games will likely feel a bit of nostalgia while watching the video, as it channels the visual — and audio — vibe of console adventures from days gone by (but not too far gone by), when every superhero movie or television project had a tie-in game.
Composer Nick Bellardini created the MIDI version of the Daredevil theme, and his YouTube page contains an impressive archive of other MIDI-fied versions of television and movie themes.
Fans of Jessica Jones, the second Marvel series on Netflix, can also take solace in the fact that a post-credits teaser at the end of the video indicates that Jessica Jones is next on the list for the doisDI design and animation team.
Oh, and apparently Demolidor is the Portugese title for Daredevil, in case you were wondering about that, too.
All 13 episodes of the second season of Daredevil, starring Charlie Cox, Elden Henson, Deborah Ann Woll, and Jon Bernthal, are available to watch now on Netflix.
