First footage from Marvel’s Daredevil series debuts in new trailer

We finally have our first look at Marvel’s upcoming Daredevil series on Netflix, and the preview makes it abundantly clear that blind lawyer Matt Murdock is going to travel a rough road on his way to becoming the famous, fearless vigilante of Hell’s Kitchen.

“I’m just trying to make my city a better place,” says series star Charlie Cox in the first preview for the series, which premieres April 10 on the streaming video service.

Along with confirming the series’ focus on gritty, street-level crime stories featuring the popular superhero, the trailer suggests that some of the religious elements of the character’s history that were popularized during Frank Miller’s celebrated run on the Daredevil comics have also been carried over to the live-action series. A man of many contradictions, Murdock historically struggles with the morality of spending his nights doling out violent punishment to criminals in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of New York City where he lives and works.

“I’m not seeking forgiveness for what I’ve done, Father,” explains Murdock while confessing his sins to a priest in the trailer. “I’m asking forgiveness for what I’m about to do.”

Produced by series showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (Spartacus, Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods), and Marvel’s Head of Television, Jeph Loeb, Daredevil will debut with all 13 episodes on Netflix at 12:01am PT on April 10. The series will be available to stream in 4K.

Along with Cox in the title role, the series also stars Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Vondie Curtis Hall as Ben Ulrich, Scott Glenn as Stick, Ayelet Zurer as Vanessa Marianna, Bob Gunton as Leland Owlsey, and Toby Leonard Moore as Wesley.

Daredevil will be the first of four Marvel series to debut on Netflix, with the title characters of all four projects (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist) eventually teaming up for The Defenders miniseries.
