There is a corridor. At the end of it, there is a closed door. Behind that, a kidnapped boy. Men come and go, speaking in untranslated Russian.
And so, at the end of the second episode of Netflix's Daredevil show, the scene is set for the most memorable action set piece in the entire series — and arguably one of the best in TV history. Thousands of words have been spilled over this fight scene online already. Let's apply our heightened senses to work out why, and whether the show lifted any tricks from its paper-and-ink brethren.
This weekend’s launch of Marvel’s Netflix series Daredevil was met with resounding success, though the visually impaired quickly noted that the streaming service had not catered the show about a blind superhero to their needs. Now, Netflix has attached a new audio track to its Daredevil release specifically designed for blind audiences, with the intent to add similar tracks to its other original programs.
Daredevil is the latest Marvel hero to make a triumphant return to the screen in the recently released Netflix series that you've probably already watched all thirteen episodes of, so he's the perfect candidate to have his convoluted history explored in the recurring feature we call Comics, Everybody! Cartoonist Chris Haley of Let’s Be Friends Again is here to educate you about Daredevil's tragic love life, colorful villains, and unlikely origin story.
Whether you're new to comics, new to Marvel's heroes, or a long-time fan looking to re-familiarize yourself with the eccentricities of superhero continuity (or maybe engage in some hardcore nitpicking), we hope you'll enjoy this tribute to the hornheaded hero of Hell's Kitchen.
So you've watched all thirteen episodes of Marvel's Daredevil on Netflix and you're itching for more? (If you haven't, you should probably stop reading this article, because we're about to go deep into spoiler territory and we're not holding anything back.) The bad news is, the second of Marvel's Netflix shows, AKA Jessica Jones, won't be along til late in the year, and there's no guarantee that we'll see Daredevil again before the Defenders mini-series, but these thirteen episodes have gone a long way to enriching Marvel's on-screen world, and setting up hints for the future.
So let's unpack some of the mysteries, Easter eggs, teasers, and in-jokes from Daredevil, and speculate wildly on where all this is going to go in the other Netflix solo series, and perhaps even in Daredevil season two.
Created in 1964 by Bill Everett and Stan Lee --- with substantial input from Jack Kirby and Wally Wood --- Daredevil has been brought to life on the page by an extraordinary roster of comics greats, including Gene Colan, David Mazzucchelli, Frank Miller, Alex Maleev, and, in recent years, Chris Samnee, Paolo Rivera, and Marcos Martin. The striking red suit that he's worn since his seventh appearance is one of the best costumes in comics, and creates an irresistible contrast against the grime of Hell's Kitchen. For this special gallery, we've picked out some of our favorite Daredevil pin-ups and images to pay tribute to ol' hornhead.
Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil is now available to watch, and dams are already breaking now that the famous red suit has been revealed to the public. We’ve given Daredevil a glowing advance review, but before your binge, get answers to some of Daredevil‘s most burning questions with our spoilery FAQ review!
Marvel’s Daredevil will premiere all 13 episodes on Netflix this Friday, and while the streaming service hasn’t suffered any major gaffes the likes of House of Cards Season 3’s early debut, it seems Netflix may have accidentally pulled back the curtain on Daredevil’s iconic red suit before the premiere.
With Avengers: Age of Ultron just around the corner, interest in these heroes has never been greater, so we’ve decided to pit all the official comic book Avengers against each other in a battle for your affections. Who is the greatest, best, favorite Avenger of all time? Only you can decide.
We’ve created voting groups that mix up different eras of Avengers membership. Group E, by random chance, is dominated by Avengers ladies, including Mockingbird, Firestar, and the under-appreciated Moondragon --- but the group may actually end up being dominated by two Marvel big guns, Hulk and Daredevil. Good thing you can vote tactically, as the two or three most popular Avengers will go through from each group!
Back in February, digital book subscription service Scribd made the rather surprising announcement that it would start offering comics from publishers including Marvel, Valiant, IDW, Boom and others in its $8.99 per month subscription, making it a sort of Netflix for comics (as well as books).
Now, Scribd is promoting the actual Netflix's new Daredevil series by recommending some of the comics on its service that can best introduce readers to the character. They've got some pretty good ones. Check out what Scribd is suggesting as a primer after the jump.

With Daredevil's new Netflix series set to debut on Friday, this week we're taking a closer look at the Man Without Fear, the most famous blind ninja lawyer in comics, probably. Find out about how Daredevil pretended to be his own brother for an unhealthy amount of time, how being a woman in Daredevil's vicinity has a higher mortality rate than Russian roulette with five bullets, and just how many times a superhero can have his identity made public before he finally just rolls with it (spoilers: a lot), as well as several other equally interesting facts.
