It’s here! Marvel and Netflix have just debuted the very first look at their upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe series, “Marvel’s Daredevil”! The images, which you can check out below, are directly inspired by John Romita Jr.’s illustrations, famously featured in the Frank Miller miniseries “Daredevil: The Man Without Fear” (the original is also in the gallery below). It’s been noted that this is just the first costume, so it’s probably a safe bet that we’ll be seeing the more familiar red (and maybe even yellow) costumes as the series progresses!
Also announced at the New York Comic Con panel are new cast members Bob Gunton as Leland Owlsely (better known as The Owl), Vondie Curtis Hall as reporter Ben Urich, Toby Leonard Moore as Wesley, Wilson’s Fisk’s right hand man (a minor character from Miller’s earlier arc) and Ayelet Zurer as Vanessa, the woman who, in the comics, goes on to become Vanessa Fisk. They’ve also revealed that Rosario Dawson will be playing none other than Claire Temple, Marvel’s Night Nurse!
Also starring Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), and Vincent D’Onofrio (Wilson Fisk), “Marvel’s Daredevil” follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.
Marvel’s first original series on Netflix is Executive Produced by series Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (“Spartacus,” “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer,” “Angel”) and Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods, “Lost,” “Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” in addition to writing the first two episodes of “Marvel’s Daredevil”), along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Smallville,” “Heroes”).
“Marvel’s Daredevil” is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
