New ‘Daredevil’ Pics Showcase Beating Abilities, Strutting
We haven’t heard much from Marvel’s Netflix ‘Daredevil’ series since the big presentation at New York Comic-Con, save for the character’s successor in Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones, so what’s Matt Murdock been up to? Find out in two new photos of Marvel’s “street-level heroes,”as ‘Daredevil’ hits the streets to dispense some ninja justice!
Per the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, Marvel’s Netflix ‘Daredevil’ has released two new photos from the forthcoming 2015 season, the first of which offers another look at Matthew Murdock’s Frank Miller-inspired threads. We’ve to see (or even hear) of the Man Without Fear donning or designing any actual red costume for the Netflix series, though we know the character will have plenty of presence through the next 3 series, and ultimately the ‘Defenders’ team-up.
Featuring ‘Boardwalk Empire‘ star Charlie Cox in the titular role of Matt Murdock, the cast of Marvel’s 2015 ‘Daredevil’ also includes ‘True Blood’ hottie Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, ‘The Leftovers’ star Scott Glenn as Matt’s sense Stick, ‘Falling Skies’ alum Peter Shinkoda in an unknown role, ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ star Elden Henson as Matt’s best friend Foggy Nelson, Vincent D’Onofrio as Kingpin Wilson Fisk, and Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple / Night Nurse.
Not only that, but the show’s New York Comic-Con 2014 panel revealed the inclusion of Vondie Curtis-Hall as reporter Ben Urich, ‘Man of Steel’ star Ayelet Zurer as Vanessa (not yet Fisk), and Bob Gunton as Leland Owlsley (The Owl).
Apart from taking place in the same cinematic universe as ‘The Avengers’ and ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,’ we know that each Marvel Netflix series will shoot 13 episodes, culminating in an eight-episode team-up with ‘The Defenders’ miniseries and bringing the total to 60 episodes (to start). Drew Goddard was replaced as showrunner by ‘Spartacus’ vet Steven S. DeKnight, though Goddard remains a consultant.
We’ll have more on Marvel’s ‘Daredevil’ as we head into the new year, but what say you? Does the first of the Netflix ‘Defenders’ have you excited for the next phase of Marvel’s live-action prospects?
