Exactly two weeks from today, Netflix will debut all 13 episodes of Marvel's Daredevil. While Marvel fans wait for Season 1 to stream in all it's glory, the studio has released a brief promo, which unfortunately doesn't contain any new footage. However, we do get a new snippet of dialogue, where Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock says, "We're gonna make a difference. I know sometimes it doesn't feel like it sometimes... but we are." Who could Matt Murdock be talking to? His law partner Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson)? Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll)? We'll have to wait until April 10 to find out for sure.
Marvel's Daredevil follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell's Kitchen, New York City. The supporting cast also includes Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple), Bob Gunton (Leland Owlsley), Scott Glenn (Stick), Ayelet Zurer (Vanessa Marianna), Vondie Curtis-Hall (Ben Urich) and Toby Leonard Moore (Wesley). In addition to this promo, Marvel's Joe Quesada responded to a fan's question today, asking why he thought Charlie Cox was the right actor to play Matt Murdock. Here's what he had to say below.
"He's a brilliant actor who has the range to encompass all the many aspects of Matt as well as bring in his own unique take."
Steven S. DeKnight serves as showrunner for Marvel's Daredevil, alongside executive producers Drew Goddard, who wrote the first two episodes of Marvel's Daredevil) and Jeph Loeb (Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Smallville, Heroes). Marvel's Daredevil is the first of four new Netflix superhero shows, including Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist.
