Marvel’s ‘Daredevil’: More Gritty, Gruesome, and Graphic than Batman
Posted on April 15, 2015
Marvel’s Daredevil premiered on April 10th on Netflix. After all of the hype and promotion, Netflix’s first Marvel series more than delivers on its promise of a gritty, ground -level superhero series.
Just watching the opening credits, it’s clear something epic is on the way.
Daredevil takes you front and center into the life of a self-professed vigilante, but sparing much of the unrealistic, fantastical elements that can sometime plague comic book adaptations. Matt Murdoch, the soon-to-be “Daredevil,” played by Charlie Cox, is just earning his stripes as he opens his fledgling law firm, takes on his first cases, and starts out as a crime fighter.
