I’ll be honest, I didn’t think I’d enjoy the trailer as much as I did (especially after that total scrimper of a “teaser of a teaser” that came out a couple of days ago), but this one actually seems like it won’t be a disaster. The biggest problem with superhero shows is the big disparity of quality of story and production between the show-verse and the movie-verse. Obviously you’re not gonna get the big name actors, the giant helicarriers, and the thundering explosions. It’s even harder to draw out a story over several episodes and still keep it fresh and entertaining. At first glance, Daredevil looks like it’s a lot more cinematic and gritty than the other two Marvel shows, Agents of Shield and Agent Carter, which is always a plus in my book. No overly corny dialogue (yet), and we’ve got some pretty damn cool effects. It almost reminds me of Sherlock in some aspects, and I will always love that. I’ve still got some uncertainties about the story, but I’ll definitely be tuning in when it comes out!
Anybody remembers when the movie Daredevil came out? It was at that time when superhero movies were rarely any good. Now, superhero movies are mostly good (to the point where even the French want their slice of the cake) and it was about time that Daredevil got a remake. I like that they chose to do a TV version rather than a new movie. Matt Murdock’s a lawyer, so the show can definitely be some kind of twisted procedural. I’m a little sad that they seem to have dropped the costume, but it does look good anyways. I enjoyed getting a glimpse of the aesthetics of the show, particularly the action scenes. For some reason, the sound is really effective, as it should be. Also, Vincent d’Onofrio is Kingpin. Be still my heart.
In other news, Carrie-Anne Moss is joining the Marvel party in Jessica Jones! I can’t wait for Iron Fist and Luke Cage. I’m so excited to see Misty Knight. I mean, Misty Knight has to be somewhere in there, right?
Well, I am still and probably always will be emotionally scarred by Daredevil starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner that came out in 2003. It pretty much out me off all kind of superhero films for a very long time, so the news about the Netflix’s upcoming remake didn’t exactly make me go crazy with excitement. The preview, however, was a pleasant surprise.
All episodes are set to premiere on April 10, 2015
