Netflix has launched character artwork for Marvel’s Daredevil which premieres next Friday April 10.
Marvel’s Daredevil is on a mission to clean up the streets of Hell’s Kitchen, New York. Lawyer by day, street-level hero by night, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) is working to make his city a better place against an underground terror within the city.
Cox is joined in the cast by Vincent D'Onofrio as Wilson Fisk, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, and Deborah Anne Woll as Karen Page.
Marvel's Daredevil is the first of four live-action adventure series, the others being Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Marvel's Iron Fist, and Marvel's Luke Cage. The lead characters will team up for Marvel's The Defenders.
The series, which is produced by Steven S DeKnight, Drew Goddard, and Jeph Loeb, will run for 13 one hour episodes.
