Superhero series starring Charlie Cox and Rosario Dawson launches on Netflix on April 10
Netflix has released a new teaser clip for Marvel’s Daredevil series ahead of its premiere next month (April).
All 13 episodes of the superhero series will launch on Netflix on April 10. British actor Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire, Stardust) stars as Matt Murdock aka Daredevil, a lawyer by day and crime-fighter by night.
The official plot synopsis for the series teases: “Meet Matt Murdock. Blinded as a boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt fights injustice by day as a respected lawyer and by night as the masked vigilante Daredevil in Hell’s Kitchen, New York. He’ll do anything to make his city a better place, but at what price?”
The series’ supporting cast includes Rosario Dawson, True Blood actress Deborah Ann Woll and Law & Order: Criminal Intent‘s Vincent D’Onofrio. Spartacus creator Steven S. DeKnight served as show runner after The Cabin In The Woods director Drew Goddard dropped out to concentrate on another Marvel project.
Daredevil is the first of four Marvel TV series set to debut on Netflix in the near future, with Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage also in the works after the streaming service announced an “unparalleled” deal with Marvel in 2013.
