    Default Daredevil (Netflix) - News/Discussion/Speculation

    As we've known for some time now, Daredevil will be the first of the Marvel/Netflix TV shows. It's being run, at least for its first season, by Steven S. DeKnight (Buffy, Angel, Spartacus).

    News today: the show's (first?) season will debut in its entirety--13 episodes--on Netflix on April 10!



    Daredevil stars:

    Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire) as Matt Murdock/Daredevil
    Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood) as Karen Page
    Elden Henson (The Hunger Games) as Foggy Nelson
    Rosario Dawson (Alexander, Sin City, Clerks II) as Claire Temple
    Vincent D’Onofrio (Full Metal Jacket, JFK, L&O: CI) as Wilson Fisk/Kingpin

    This show is excellent in every sense of the word. I am surprised more people are not commenting on it here.

    I'm still watching, so I've mostly gone dark to avoid spoilers. Just coming up for air once in a while.

    ...and now I'm done, so I can safely emerge from hiding!


    Wow. What a brilliant bloody series. The writing, the direction, the cinematography, the casting, the acting--they knocked all of it out of the park.

    And though I found all of it to be excellent and above and beyond, I absolutely must highlight Vincent D'Onofrio as being [u]brilliant[/i] as Wilson Fisk. He plays his character flawlessly in a villain performance that is (dare I say) on par with the brilliance of Heath Ledger's Joker.

    Some lingering questions I have (spoilers for whole season) :
    Spoiler:
    At one point, Claire refers to an ex named Mike who 'turned out to be very good at keeping secrets.' Mike is certainly a very common name, but I couldn't help but think this was a sly nod to Mike Peterson (Deathlok) in Agents of SHIELD! Agree/disagree?

    What is the Black Sky weapon/child?

    At the end of Stick's episode, he reports in to someone, his master or something. Who is that? And a few episodes later, it seems that Nobu knows who Stick is and what "his war" is about. What is the story there?

    When Madame Gao leaves NY to visit 'her homeland,' she says to Owlsey that it's "considerably farther afield" than China. Who is she? Where is she from? Was that a cosmic reference of some sort?

    Right near the end of the finale, just before Fisk is arrested (for the first time) he asks Vanessa--off-screen--to do something for him. What did he ask her to do?

    Digi, you have a lot of the same questions I have. I'm guessing that they will be answered either in the shows of the three other heroes, the Defenders miniseries, or as a set up to a possible second season of Daredevil sometime before Defenders.

    Free of Spoilers:

    Watched up to episode 10. Probably going to watch the rest by Saturday.

    I love the action scenes and the fact that they have weight to them. They are meaningful and are not easy for either party.

    I love the characters. I love how they grow and how the pilot has set the tone and storylines that continue throughout the season.

    Looking forward to the rest of the season.

    I wouldn't say that. Not to discount Vincent's performance. But they are very different roles. The Joker was given as an absolute. He wasn't given any human elements, just pure chaos and challenging everything the Batman built and symbolized.

    Vincent D'Onofrio (who I didn't recognize from Law and Order, but I did find him familiar) portrayed Wilson Fisk
    Spoiler:
    not just as a symbol of what Matt Mudock wants to fight, but also as a mirror of Matt, his mission, and his beliefs.

    It goes further by the fact that the writers crafted Fisk's backstory to truly define the difference between how each was raised. Both have their better angels in them, but they also have their devils to deal with. It goes beyond D'Onofrio's performance to just how the cast and crew built a wonderful array of characters that are truly human despite the stakes being raised.

    D'Onofrio was integral to selling Wilson Fisk, but the actor that played a younger Fisk and his parents were amazing. That truly helped give him an emotional core that we don't see clearly in the present scenes.

    Already heard many good things about it, so maybe that curiosity will get too overwhelming until I give in and start that binge watching.
