Tomorrow is the big reveal for Marvel's Daredevil teaser trailer. But before that happens, star Charlie Cox recently spoke about his character's super powers as they will be shown on the Netflix series. According to the actor, Matt Murdock's 'sonar sense' will be displayed, and sound, quite a bit different than it did in the 2003 movie starring Ben Affleck.
Speaking with Scratch the Surface, Charlie Cox commented on the Daredevil movie, calling it 'fun at times'. He also believes the tone of that particular movie 'doesn't really work for that character and that world.' He then goes onto describe his character's sonar-like hearing abilities that allow him to 'see' using his ears. The actor explains how these powers will be depicted on-screen. It won't be like the blue-hued 'sound vision' shots from the earlier film:
"We had to adapt certain things for the purpose of story telling. Like for example, and I'm making this up so there are no spoilers here, there is a scene where I come into the room, and lets say there are guns all over the floor on one side of the room and drugs on the other side of the room. Im just making this up, I promise I'm just making this up. So lets say that's the scene. I come into the room, and I [Daredevil] can pick up on those things, based on a combination of his senses, smell, gunpowder in the air, taste of cocaine in the air or whatever, he can sense those things. But you can't tell that story on camera without having a camera move that goes to them. Daredevil wouldn't need to look in that direction in order to sense those objects, but the camera needs to. So we had to come up with a way where he has to focus on things in order to kind of sense them, and by focusing he kind of cocks his head towards what it is he's trying to get a sense of, trying to kind of create an image in his mind of what it is, so we can tell that story."
What do you think? Do you like the sound of this new sonar sense? Did you think the 2003 Daredevil got it right? Let us know, and stay tuned for the first Marvel's Daredevil teaser trailer, which will be here sometime tomorrow.
