Marvel has officially released its first trailer for the upcoming Daredevil series that will air on Netflix.
In trailer, viewers finally have a solid look at Charlie Cox as Daredevil and Matt Murdock, along with the rest of the series’ starring cast. The first season of Daredevil looks to tell crimefighter’s origin story, chronicling Matt Murdock’s ascent from blind lawyer to the protector of New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen.
The Netflix-exclusive series is officially part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Daredevil stars Charlie Cox as Daredevil, Deborah Anne Woll as Karen Page, Vincent D'Onofrio as Wilson Fisk/The Kingpin, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, and Rosario Dawson as The Night Nurse.

Also the Scratch the Surface podcast sat down for a chat with Charlie Cox yesterday and quizzed him a little about playing the blind superhero in Marvel and Netflix's upcoming Daredevil show. And most interestingly, he reveals how the character's sonar-like superpowers will be depicted on-screen. Cox concocts a scenario to better explain things, and from his account, it seems we won't be getting anything like the blue-tinged "sound vision" shots from the Daredevil film. Check it out:
"We had to adapt certain things for the purpose of story telling. Like for example, and I’m making this up so there are no spoilers here, there is a scene where I come into the room, and lets say there are guns all over the floor on one side of the room and drugs on the other side of the room. Im just making this up, I promise I’m just making this up. S
o lets say that’s the scene. I come into the room, and I [Daredevil] can pick up on those things, based on a combination of his senses, smell, gunpowder in the air, taste of cocaine in the air or whatever, he can sense those things. But you can’t tell that story on camera without having a camera move that goes to them. Daredevil wouldn’t need to look in that direction in order to sense those objects, but the camera needs to. So we had to come up with a way where he has to focus on things in order to kind of sense them, and by focusing he kind of cocks his head towards what it is he’s trying to get a sense of, trying to kind of create an image in his mind of what it is, so we can tell that story."
The entire 13-episode season will be available on Netflix starting April 10.
