Philosophising about the 'S'-word: Watch… and learn

Daredevil

the-series-philosopher-Daredevil_wikiMarvel’s Daredevil, or simply Daredevil, is an American web television series created for Netflix by Drew Goddard (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Lost, Angel, Alias), based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. It is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), sharing continuity with the films of the franchise, and is the first in a series of shows that will lead up to a Defenders crossover miniseries. The series is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios, DeKnight Prods. and Goddard Textiles, with Steven S. DeKnight (Spartacus) serving as showrunner on the first season, and Goddard acting as consultant. Doug Petrie (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel) and Marco Ramirez will take over as showrunners for the show’s second season.

Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire) stars as Matt Murdock / Daredevil, a lawyer-by-day who fights crime at night. The series chronicles the character’s early days fighting crime, juxtaposed with the rise of crime lord Wilson Fisk, played by Vincent D’Onofrio (Law & Order: Criminal Intent). Daredevil entered development in late 2013, a year after the film rights to the character reverted to Marvel, with Goddard initially hired in December 2013. DeKnight replaced him as showrunner and Cox was hired to star in May 2014, with Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood), Elden Henson (Intelligence), Toby Leonard Moore, Vondie Curtis-Hall (Chasing Life), Bob Gunton (Desperate Housewives, 24), Ayelet Zurer (Betipul), and Rosario Dawson (Gemini Division) also starring. Filming takes place in New York City, in areas that still look like the old Hell’s Kitchen.

All episodes of the first season premiered on April 10, 2015. The series was released to critical acclaim, with critics praising the action sequences, performances, and the darker tone compared to other properties set in the MCU.
