Release Year: 2015
Creator: Drew Goddard
Starring: Charlie Cox, Vincent D’Onofrio, Deborah Ann Woll
Daredevil may be the best new addition to Netflix for 2015. Charlie Cox stars as lawyer Matt Murdock who is blinded as a child in a freak accident but uses his heightened senses in other areas to become the crimefighting superhero Daredevil.
Murdock can’t see with his eyes but he can still see the world in a way only he can. He delivers justice in the courtroom as a lawyer but when he can’t bring the criminals to justice in the courtroom he dons his costume and acts as a vigilante at night.
Fans of the comic will love the TV adaptation. It does a great job of erasing the colossal failure that was the Ben Affleck movie of the same name years ago. It’s dark, gritty, morose and full of action that should delight die-hard fans of the franchise. The second season introduced us to The Punisher, Elektra and The Hand and was even better than the awesome first season.
Next: The Punisher
