Daredevil: Netflix's First Full Trailer

     This morning saw the release of the upcoming Netflix series featuring Marvel Comics' Daredevil and it looks far better than I had been expecting.  There are a few cliched lines, and lots of darkness, but it also has potential.

     Daredevil/Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) is just a simple lawyer with a few extra abilities attempting to bring justice to Hell's Kitchen in New York City from the reign of Wilson "The Kingpin" Fisk (Vincent D'Onofrio).  I also saw Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll), Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson), and Master Stick (Scott Glenn)- all pretty well cast and looking good.  They've even managed to keep in the religious struggle of becoming a guardian devil by the looks of it.

     Personally I was hoping it would have a grittier vibe, like The Black Donnellys had.  It could be there, as the trailer is still only revealing only the barest of story, so we'll just have to wait and see.  Maybe we'll even see him get a costume with a little more armor or protective covering- something like kevlar- light and flexible enough to still move.  I can't imagine an UnderArmour shirt reflecting bullets.

     Marvel's Daredevil Premieres on Netflix on April 10th (The entire series on one day).
