netflix's 'daredevil' trailer is action-packed
and capital D Dark
The new trailer for Netflix's Daredevil begins with that familiar Marvel logo, but this show looks way darker than the bright, pop-art crime fighting we've come to expect from Tony Stark and his crew of super-friends. Marvel promised a much grittier version of its universe than usual, and it looks like they've delivered.
In this world—a cruel vision of New York City's Hell's Kitchen—when our hero Matt Murdock gets beat up, he bleeds. And boy does he get beat up. The trailer shows Murdock (Charlie Cox) ass kicking and getting his ass kicked in equal measure. We also get to meet the show's villain, a bald psychopath named Wilson Fisk (Vincent D'Onofrio) who just wants to clean up his city, setting up a yin-yang parallel with our hero. Rosario Dawson shows up as a woman who becomes Murdock's guardian of sorts, and Deborah Ann Woll appears as a woman keeping her own secrets. Daredevil hits Netflix on April 10th, so say goodbye to that weekend.
