By now, most of you will be familiar with Netflix’s “release everything and make them binge watch the show” tactic. In other words, it’s going to be a long April 10.
Marvel announced its Daredevil series would be released in its entirety on Netflix on the same day, giving us 13 one-hour Matt Murdock-filled episodes to watch at our own pace. Which probably means over the weekend.
The show sees Charlie Cox starring in the titular role, and is the first of the Marvel series on the video-streaming site most famous for making us binge-watch House of Cards. Marvel was also kind enough to give us a “motion poster” with the release date announcement.
In addition to our blind not-Ben-Affleck lawyer, the series will see Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, with Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple and Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk/aka Kingpin.
The Daredevil series is the first in a line of Marvel shows coming to Netflix, with Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage all waiting to make their own outings down the production line.
With this release format, I’m guessing Marvel’s Daredevil series will flow a little differently from what we’re used to with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the overlaps with Marvel’s film releases.
However, considering the timing of the release, it’s quite likely we’ll see some references or more to some of the other Marvel IPs coming out around the corner (*cough* Age of Ultron please *cough*).
