DAREDEVIL Gets Premiere Date

BANNER_News2013

USA Today‘s Brian Truitt reported it on Twitter, and it’s now official from Marvel and Netflix: a premiere date for Daredevil.

If the home video network follows past practices, it’s possible that the entire series will hit that day. All thirteen episodes could be available for binge-watching, similar to the release plan for House of Cards. Given how the show producers have talked about making a “13-hour movie”, it’s likely this is the release plan.

Daredevil stars Charlie Cox as blind lawyer Matt Murdoch, who protects the streets of Hell’s Kitchen as the vigilante Daredevil. Using enhanced senses brought on by a chemical spill, Murdoch is the protector of the New York borough, and the show promises to be more gritty and street-level than anything we’ve seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet.

Marvel has also released a teaser along with a new poster (click to embiggen):

The series is the first of four being produced by Marvel and ABC Television for Netflix. AKA Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist will follow, along with a mini-series teaming up the four in The Defenders. Krysten Ritter has been cast as retired superheroine Jessica Jones, and Mike Colter will play Luke Cage.
