Yesterday Netflix posted a preview of a the Daredevil teaser that showed about 5 seconds of Charlie Cox as the titular hero walking down a dark hallway before busting through a door. Today we get the full 90 seconds of goodness, with a look at major characters such as Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll), Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson), Stick (Scott Glen), Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), and a brief glimpse of what we can assume is the back of Vincent D’Onofrio’s bald head as Kingpin.
If we didn’t know any better, this could easily be the trailer for a feature film. The fact that we are getting Daredevil’s story in a long format with 13 serialized episodes increases its potential, well, thirteen-fold. In an era when television has become better than movies in many ways, studios have relied more and more on the spectacle of super hero films to get people to the theatres, so it will be interesting to see how this trend will be effected by Daredevil and the subsequent series Marvel has planned.
Hopefully it won’t be long ’til the preview to the teaser of the full length trailer is posted.
