The big news today for the Marvel Universe is that the first full trailer for “Daredevil,” the online Netflix series, dropped this morning with plenty of explosions, fights and, yes, shoes.
The dark opening scenes of the trailer show Marvel comic book hero Matt Murdock walking the streets of New York City. Murdock is a blind lawyer by day and superhero crime-fighter Daredevil by night. The character is famous for his red bodysuit and boots, though the iconic costume is nowhere to be seen in the trailer. (Admittedly, we were a bit bummed.)
Charlie Cox, best known for his stint on “Boardwalk Empire,” has been brought on to play the lead role in the 14-episode series expected to premiere April 10.
The rest of the cast includes TV heavyweights Rosario Dawson, Deborah Ann Woll and Vincent D’Onofrio.
The 1960s comic book was adapted into a 2003 movie starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, and Daredevil has appeared in several other Marvel animated series, too. However, this Netflix project is the first full-blown series for the superhero.
As soon as we’ve finished watching “House of Cards,” you’ll find us on a couch come April with this new show. Check out the trailer below and a gallery of our favorite superhero-worthy shoes to add to your closet.
