Marvel’s famous blind lawyer and super crime fighter will be heading to Netflix a bit earlier than expected. The content streaming giant made the release date announcement at the Critics Association’s winter press tour on Wednesday, January 7. They did a great job at promoting the show whist revealing the release date in a very nifty motion poster. Marvel’s Daredevil (official title) will be heading to Netflix on Friday, April 10!
This is the official launch of Marvel’s ongoing partnership with the streaming company, and we can expect no less than 13 episodes to be aired. The show stars Charlie Cox as the titular superhero by night, and he practices law under the name Matt Murdock by day. Vincent D’Onofrio takes on the role as the main baddie Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin, and the show also stars Rosario Dawson, Deborah Ann Woll, and Elden Henson. The show is penned by Drew Goddard and “Spartacus” alum Steven S. DeKnight.
Stay strapped in geeks, Marvel is still on route to release “Jessica Jones”, “Iron Fist” and “Luke Cage” in 2015.
Here’s the official synopsis for Marvel’s Daredevil:
“Blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) fights against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the Super Hero “Daredevil” in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. Produced by Marvel Television and ABC Studios, with executive producers Steven S. DeKnight (Spartacus), Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and Drew Goddard (Cabin In The Woods), the series also stars Rosario Dawson, Vincent D’Onofrio, Deborah Ann Woll and Elden Henson.”
