watch the very dark trailer for netflix's 'daredevil'
binge-watching begins April 10.
Netflix has released the first trailer for their upcoming Marvel series, Daredevil, and it is no-holds-barred nasty. Based on the 90-second clip, which features grisly murders, weighty church scenes, and a little bit of the old ultra-violence, this latest edition of Marvel's blind-superhero saga is capital d Dark.
In case you skipped the 2003 Ben Affleck version (which we hope you did), the 13-episode series will tell the story of Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), a lawyer who was blinded as a young child and as a result developed heightened senses everywhere else. Naturally, he decides to use those to fight crime as the titular Daredevil, eventually running up against Vincent D'Onofrio's Kingpin—who, in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment, looks utterly terrifying here—in his attempts to clean up New York City's Hell's Kitchen. Rosario Dawson and Deborah Ann Woll also star in the series that drops all at once on April 10. This is going to be fun.
