It’s only been a few days since Marvel’s Daredevil, and the one of the best fight scenes from any Marvel series is already causing waves all over the internet. I’m talking about the hallway fight scene in the second episode of Daredevil. I mean i think that fight scene was literally one of the best fight scenes i have ever seen.
If you haven’t seen the second episode of Marvel’s Daredevil “Cut Man” this post does contain spoilers.
As you may have noticed, it takes an incredibly skilled team to visualize and accomplish a scene like this. Daredevil's stunt co-coordinator Philip J Silvera has revealed that the hallway fight scene in the show's second episode, was a "pure, one shot fight".
"Phil Abraham was directing, and it was always scripted that this scene was going to be a one-shot" Silvera told.
Silvera said the most difficult aspect of capturing the scene was filming such a complex scene in such a short amount of time. “You know, most feature films would get weeks to rehearse something like this,” Silvera said to Observer
And surprisingly, even with a lack of preparation, the team only needed “7 or 8″ takes, according to Silvera, before they nailed it. That’s pretty impressive huh!
Silvera also mentioned the hallway fight scene “sets the tone for the show.”And wow he could not have been more correct. I was so pumped for the rest of the season after that episode.
