Marvel Releases New 'Daredevil' Trailer
. (Radio.com) Can you un-see the image of Ben Affleck in red leather fighting a bald Colin Farrell in a trenchcoat? Marvel and Netflix are inviting you to try. Twelve years after a decidely lukewarm Daredevil movie bowed in theaters, the blind lawyer-turned-brawling Marvel Comics superhero is getting his own series on Netflix come April 10.
And so far, it looks promising, taking much different tone under the hand of series creator Drew Goddard, who previously wrote the movies Cabin in the Woods and Cloverfield. We've seen glimpses of his new grittier take on Daredevil in a few short teasers, but the first full trailer for the series landed, and shows much more of Charlie Cox as lead Matt Murdoch, aka Daredevil, as well as an angry Vincent D'Onofrio as his other bald nemesis, the Kingpin.
Daredevil's costume and extrasensory powers have been toned down considerably from the previous film, as the trailer reveals. Gone are the cheesy overdone echolocation effects, replaced with a more subtle blur to show how he perceives the world. Daredevil's costume is mostly black, making him look like a ninja.
The trailer is appropriately full of shadow and paints Hell's Kitchen in Manhattan as a violent and scary place in need of cleaning up (in real life, it's hardly been that way for years, but no matter). 'I realized the city was a part of me, it was in my blood, and I'd do anything to make it a better place," says a throaty voiceover. A few quick shots indicate that the series will stick closely to the Daredevil origin story from the comic: Matt Murdoch is blinded by a radioactive substance as a child and is molded into a superior fighter by his boxer father, Jack.
