I'm very glad to see I am not the only one who is extremely excited for Netflix's Daredevil series. It has a fantastic cast, and I absolutely loved the first trailer. Star Charlie Cox and showrunner Steven S. DeKnight shared a few thoughts on the project in an interview with Empire, and I think you will be quite pleased with what they have to say about the upcoming series.

Charlie Cox on what to expect from Netflix's Daredevil:

This is more sinister, and that really suits the character. The hero and the villain… it’s a very blurry line. Let’s say that you didn’t know anything about Daredevil, hopefully you would feel a sense of ambiguity about who’s on the right path here. And, well, you know… we have blood.

Speaking of blood, it's looking like Daredevil will be a little darker and maybe just a tad more violent compared to the films from Marvel's Cinematic Universe. Steven S. DeKnight described the show as PG-16 (something he's done in the past) during his conversation with Empire, saying "We don’t quite get to R, but we kiss right up to it.” DeKnight went on to again likened the tone of the series to HBO's The Wire.

We always say we shoot for The Wire. We also took our cues from classic cop movies of the ‘70s that we love: The French Connection, Dog Day Afternoon, movies like that.

A great new poster for the series has also been released that you can check out below, and all 13 episodes of Daredevil will be available on Netflix on April 10, 2015.

They say all the right things, it looks like it has the right tone, and there is blood on the poster what more could you want aside from him donning the RED costume at some point. And he better don the red classic costume lol. Yeah I'm a purist but everything other than the color of the suit is a fucking dream come true. I always loved the grittiness of DD. I'm glad that Marvel has allowed some of their properties to go "dark" on screen even if its TV screens. I was worried that Disney wouldn't

I was worried that Disney wouldn't allow for any of the dark heroes to see the light of day without becoming too "light". I want a real Punisher, a real Ghost Rider, and even a real Moon Knight. Daredevil paves the way for it, and if DD does well it bodes well for those other shows/movies we'd all love to see. DD's tone looks perfect and we do need some street level heroes in the MCU. Counting down the days.

I think DD only starts out in the black suit in the first few episodes. But he gets the red suit by end of the first season. I remember reading somewhere that there's a whole arc throughout the season for getting from Matt Murdock to the persona of Daredevil.

Oh man. I am loving the vibe of this. On a personal level, I recognise that Arrow is good (I haven't tried Flash). It's just not to my taste because of the teeny OC soap opera stuff that fills out each episode. I have a strong feeling this will be a game changer though. It feels so down and dirty which I love and the shorter season fills me with confidence that they have a story to tell with less filler. Can't wait.

Looks nice. I just saw that they have made this one with a seriously big budget which makes it sound even more promising.

Still can't believe Netflix are releasing this in one go. I wonder if that's how it'll work in the UK. I'm only signing up to Netflix because of this and it would seem I'd still be in the midst of my free month by the time I'm done watching the show.

As for the poster, reminds me of that scene from Fight Club where Norton shows up at the office all beaten up - how's Murdock supposed to present himself in a court of law looking like that? :o)
