Growing up and even to this day, I have always considered myself a DC Comics Fan. Some of my favorite costumed characters include The Flash, Green Lantern, Batman, Superman, Rorschach, Dr. Fate, Aquaman, Wonder Woman and Green Arrow. Despite my intense affinity for the DC Comics -character property, I often found myself gravitating towards some of Marvel Entertainment's roster.
Some of my favorite characters on the Marvel side include The Punisher, Captain America, Blade, Cyclops, Iron Man, War Machine, Luke Cage, of course Spider Man and then Daredevil. When it was first announced that Daredevil was once again coming to live screen adaptation, I was somewhat cynical. I did not care for the early 2000's run at the hero vigilante that stared the ever so loved, Ben Affleck at the helm but it always seemed to remain in the recess of my memory as a guilty pleasure.
In addition to superb writing and action sequences the series is rounded out by stars, Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple), Bob Gunton (Leland Owlsely aka The Owl), Vondie Curtis Hall (Ben Urich), Toby Leonard Moore (Wesley, Wilson Fisk’s right hand man), Ayelet Zurer (Vanessa Fisk), and Vincent D’Onofrio (Wilson Fisk).
I can't say how excited I am for this new step for Marvel Studios as well as Netflix. The first episode is as one my expect, insight into the characters origins as well as a brief glimpse into the characters iconic suit. There are several story lines going on that includes human trafficking and corporate corruption. It is television for grown ups, and the grown ups will enjoy ! As the late great Johnny Cash would say, he's got gravel in his guts and spit in his eye,but he doesn't give up! Remember despite how monumental your problems might seem, you can overcome them with God. With him, you have the power to triumph.
Daredevil is available for viewing globally on Netflix
