DAREDEVIL (Netflix)

post #1 of 2279
Thread Starter 

The reviews are coming out ahead of the April 10 release date for this.... and they're good!

 

 

Screencrush says: Netflix's Daredevil Is Unlike Anything Marvel Has Ever Done Before

 

Quote:
Daredevil was well-worth the wait, and breaks the Marvel movie mold with bone-crunching delight. It’s everything Nolan’s Batman never had time to explore, everything Arrow wants to be without network boundaries, and exactly the street-level drama Marvel needs to complete its superhero world.

 

Here Comes Superhero Hype's Review Of Marvel's Daredevil

 

Quote:
 I cannot applaud “Marvel’s Daredevil” enough. From its succinct telling of the origin, to the dynamic character drama, to the stellar fluid action, and the underlying through narrative, the show is another home run for Marvel. Drew Goddard’s script for the first two episodes is flawlessly put together with the same melding of reverence and new flavors that make the other Marvel products work. Executive Producer Steven DeKnight has developed a world within the Marvel Universe that is both unique and lived-in but also now integral to the scope of the MCU. If the rest of the Netflix shows are done with the same amount of heart, guts, and edge that “Marvel’s Daredevil” has, then there is nothing at all to worry about.

 

Variety's review

 

Quote:
 

Compared to Marvel’s experience with “Agents of SHIELD” for ABC, operating in Netflix’s pay-to-view world is clearly liberating, in much the way animated direct-to-DVD titles enable the comics companies to cater to knowledgeable fans without needing to worry too much about luring the uninitiated into the tent. And the binge prospect should be helpful in getting people hooked on the overarching adventure, complete with Russian mobsters and feuding crime factions building toward the inevitable Daredevil-Kingpin showdown. 

By that measure, Marvel has shrewdly expanded its portfolio, and Netflix has upped its must-have quotient with a fiercely loyal segment of consumers. Viewed that way, costume or no costume, “Daredevil” looks dressed for success.

Big sigh of relief.  This was the one I was more worried about than anything, I'm a huge fan of the book.  Now to sit back, and let this wash all over me.  All up in me.

 One early sequence may yet rival True Detective for sheer choreography across a single take, all with nary a digital effect to be seen.

 

That single take shot from True Detective was one of my favorite pieces of television last year, so I'm hoping this is true. I'm also pleased to hear that they've come up with a reason as to why Hell's Kitchen is plagued with crime, as I know a few articles have gone into depth about how that setting is a much different place nowadays.

Yeah apparently it's the trendy, nice neighborhood these days which is funny.

Damn gentrification.

Shameless has been showing us the evils of that particular social phenomenon this year.

WAIT WHAT? CREATIVE USAGE OF FILM FORM IN A MARVEL PRODUCT?!!

 

Huh, now I'm really interested in seeing what this ends up being.

I really hope that isnt hyperbole because that whole sequences was jaw dropping.
post #13 of 2279

I am officially psyched for this now.

 

I've always really liked Daredevil, it was one of the comics I read consistently as a kid and I even liked the 2003 MSJ/Affleck version (directors cut especially). There is just something about the masochistic nature of Matt Murdock, bruised and broken but driven, that has always stuck out for me.

Its beyond that.  Hell's Kitchen sale prices average $3.5M, while rental prices for a two-bedroom apt. are in the $3,500/month range. 

 

 

The entire borough of Manhattan has now become the unattainable.

post #16 of 2279
I'm kind of hoping that they work it in that the kingpin was behind some nefarious scheme to drive the old residents (ie Murdock's people) out of the neighborhood after he'd bribed/blackmailed his way into all the contracts to gentrify the place.
post #17 of 2279

 

It sure does look right pretty.

$3,500 a month for an apartment?! Christ Almighty! I'll never bitch about my rent in L.A. again.



...my rent's still highway robbery.
post #19 of 2279

Srsly. I own a 3-story brownstone in Brooklyn and $3,500/month is more than my damned mortgage.

And don't think that you'll even get that much space for that $3500/month. My office is located a little East of HK on 50th/Broadway and would be considered part of midtown. Warner Music HQ is in my building. So that should give you an idea of how people view the neighborhood. So I'm very interested in seeing how they plan on covering the fact that HK isn't the downtrodden war zone of Daredevil's past.

I'm actually more excited about this than the return of Game Of Thrones now.

 

Just read that Jason Statham is a big Daredevil fan. They should cast him as Bullseye for season two!

The first time I ever read/heard of the term "gentrification" was actually in a Punisher comic guest-starring Daredevil when I was a kid. If memory serves, Castle's Japanese immigrant neighbors were being driven out of Hell's Kitchen and Murdock was giving them legal help.

Anyway, the Japanese immigrant family turned out to be a clan of good ninjas-- of course-- so things ended up well for them.

Hmm you'd think they could afford a better neighborhood with those connections. The same with the old woman from Drag Me to Hell. So you can summon demons but not a house payment?

Good ninjas. That has to be a lie.
All ninja are evil.
Wait a minute...isn't ninja both singular and plural?

Got me there, I guess. smile.gif

They eventually gave them their own series, though, so pretty sure they were on the side of the angels.

For that matter, Murdock's mentor Stick was some kind of ninja, which more or less made ol' Hornhead one too. I wonder how much of that stuff will make it into the show. I'd guess not a whole lot, in the early going anyway.

One interesting quote from IGN.

 

"But here's one interesting way they've connected the story to the larger MCU picture. Daredevil was created back in the '60s, just a few months after the Kennedy Assassination, to play as a niche Irish Catholic hero. Residing in Hell's Kitchen - an NYC neighborhood that, at one time, was home to many Irish immigrants. As well as a buttload of crime. Well, Hell's Kitchen isn't really like that anymore. And since the story doesn't take place in the 60s and 70s, the decision was made to have the Chitauri's attack on New York be the catalyst for the story now in 2015. Hell's Kitchen has gone to pot because it was all but destroyed during the alien invasion. Which means it needs a hero to help prevent it all from being taken over by a new syndicate of crime lords (led my a mysterious figure whose name, like Voldemort's, is never mentioned)."

I really wish I could have posted my Chitauri theory so I would've looked all preiscent.

Ahhh...I was wondering where in the MCU timeline this would take place.

I wonder, what with this being an actual Marvel show (unlike Agents Of SHIELD which is primarily an ABC show) and they're able to use Spider-Man again, whether we'll see some sort of cross-over in season two for at least an episode? Would be a shame not to really, seeing as they both inhabit the same city.

post #33 of 2279
It would be fantastic. I've always thought that you couldn't do Spider-Man on a TV budget but then you like at how good The Flash can look (although and awful lot of his fightin' is done at night) and it gives a bit of hope.

DD's fights would too.

I'm not sure if Season 2 of Daredevil will come out before Cap 3 but they should introduce Spidey on TV if it's before.  Everyone knows Spidey's origin but it will be nice to see him and what side characters they will go with. 

post #36 of 2279

No way in hell they're going to put Spider-Man on TV, even in a small appearance. It would lower his brand. Now Peter Parker is a definite possibility.

post #37 of 2279

I'd say it's more likely we see Charlie Cox appearing in a SONY/Marvel co-production.  Either way, I'm game for a Spider-Man/Daredevil crossover.

post #38 of 2279
Yeah, I'd say either one of those scenarios is more likely. Maybe just Murdock showing up as a lawyer in one of the movies. That would still be kinda cool.

Shame though, because I think Spidey could benefit from the long-form TV format-- his book was always a soap opera. And with the two characters together they could adapt something like "The Death of Jean DeWolf", which was my favorite Spidey /DD team-up. It'll never happen.
post #39 of 2279
Couldnt they just do a short Peter Parker series and end a 10 ep arc with the Spider bite? Leaving Webhead for the bigscreen....
post #40 of 2279

Is Parker really that interesting to warrant a limited series?

post #41 of 2279

Any character can be interesting in the right creative hands. #JossWhedonForSpidey #BuffyWasHisDryRun

post #42 of 2279
jesus, he went from coughing weedin's name to editing it to make it a hash instead...
post #43 of 2279
Daredevil and Spidey are a fairly common team up, so it's obviously going to happen sometime down the road. Why create this big beautiful shared universe only to have the avengers be a completely exclusive group who daredevil or Spidey never interact with? They shouldn't, most of the time. Different books approach the shared marvel universe as a different thing, see Bendis on Daredevil etc, but still. Cameos and interconnectivity can be fun.

Possibly? I just dont want to see Spidey's origin wasting screentime during a 2 hr flick for the 3rd time in 10-15 years. If they wanna flesh it out (and they may, since it's another reboot... dumb), do it on Netflix.

Quite jazzed for this. Daredevil, Mad Men and Game of Thrones? This will be one heck of a viewing weekend.

Yeah.  Plans amongst myself and my geeky friends hath already been made.  Binging on Daredevil, the charring of meats on the backyard grill, Sunday brunch, and capping it off with the GoT S5 opener.

 

I mean, we normally get together for the premiere and finale of each season of Game of Thrones, but this just gets to be super deluxe bonus year.  It's like Television Christmas!

Jmacq1, you have perfected life.
post #48 of 2279

I happily allowed this to fly below the radar from announcement until about a week ago.  Haven't watched the trailer, haven't looked at pictures, haven't done shit.  Didn't even expect anything, since Agents of Shield fucking sucked from the jump.  The early reviews are the first thing I noticed.  The fact that Agent Carter was pretty good also helped my credulity.

 

So anyways, I love Daredevil.  He is a superhero ripe for long-form treatment.  As the funny pages go, Daredevil Born Again is the finest example of an in-series comic story in the medium's history.

 

So when I start watching this on Friday, I will be going in as cold as Mr. Freeze's piss.  I can't wait.

Apparently - at least according to a link I didn't clink onto at another site - photos of the red costume have finally leaked. If anyone decides to post them here, I'd ask you do as much as you can to protect me (and anyone else looking to see the costume for the first time during the show) from seeing them. Thanks in advance, guys!
