New Details For DAREDEVIL Plus New Poster Too!

Here is some of the new details on the upcoming Marvel and Netflix made DAREDEVIL, from his connection to the MCU, to how bloody it will be. Here is all that and more down below.

Featured in the latest issue of Empire magazine are eight new stills from Marvel's Daredevil Netflix series, and they've all found a way online via Tumblr. Featuring Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) in and out of costume, as well as post-battle alongside Claire Temple aka Night Nurse (Rosario Dawson), and pre-battle with Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll) and Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson), the images also offer a familiar look at Wilson Fisk (Vincent D'Onofrio), the Kingpin.


When and where in the Marvel Cinematic Universe does Daredevil take place? We still don't have a specific date and time (before or after the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D. in The Winter Soldier for example), but Marvel Television's Emma Fleischer did at least confirm in an interview with Empire Magazine that it follows the events of The Avengers. "We are still part of the Marvel Universe," she explianed, "but we are not explicitly in that Agenstts of S.H.I.E.L.D. world. We're in our own corner. So the aliens came down and ruined the ciy, and this is the story of Hell's Kitchen's rebuild." This is further confirmed by the publication when they mention seeing a framed newspaper in the office of the New York Bulletin showing Stark Tower "being zapped by a Chitauri laser beam".

The fact that Daredevil is being released on Netflix before Avengers: Age of Ultron hits the big screen probably means the first season won't deal with any sort of fallout from that, but it could of course crop up in a second season. Does showrunner Steven S. DeKnight think another run of episodes will happen? "We certainly hope so! I mean, it's totally up to Netflix. But I think it's a phenomenal season and we certainly end in up a place where we could tell many other stories." Star Charlie Cox meanwhile wasn't willing to say too much about how The Man Without Fear connects to the rest of the heroes he shares a universe with, but did say that fans should be on the lookout for "a couple of very casual Easter egg reference to other superheroes." When the magazine put it to him that a Captain America: Civil War appearance would work for Daredevil, he apparently said he wouldn't turn down the invitation, but cautioned that "in this show, Daredevil feels special, like a big thing, not an everyday occurence. It's not like he's one of that lot..."

Will the Man Without Fear get his iconic red costume in the upcoming Netflix series? That's the question everyone is asking, but we now finally have an answer. Talking to Empire Magazine, Daredevil costume designer Stephanie Maslansky reveals that the black vigilante outfit was pieced together from "practical sports and military wear, restitching garments from companies like McDavid, CAT, and G-Star." All of this she says is stuff that Matt could "go out and find himself." When the site mentioned the red outfit and horns, she added: "In the end, somebody else [in the story] makes his Daredevil costume. What's really exciting is the evolution of it, and how he comes to have it made." It sounds like we WILL get to see the costume, but this is all quite vague!

Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight wasn't willing to reveal anything specific either, but it does sound as if we're going to see the costume develop and chance throughout the course of the series. "Without giving too much away, this show is Matt learning to be a hero. He starts in that first iteration of the Daredevil outfit which is taken very much from Frank Miller and The Man Without Fear. But I always questioned [the main costume]. I mean, one, he's blind. Did he stitch it together himself? How did he manage all that? So, actually getting him to that point I thought was really interesting." This again seems to indicate that someone else will create Daredevil's classic red suit for him. We'll just have to wait and see, but it's going to be hard not to fast forward through the episodes when they're released to see if he's wearing the classic red suit at the end!

Talk then turned to the level of violence in the series, with DeKnight confirming that they will push the boundaries of what's acceptable in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. "Netflix, of course, they don't have a problem with pushing it. I mean, they go anywhere from G to NC-17. But the Marvel brand, that's a little different.They're obviously not comfortable going that far with it, though they've allowed us to push it much further than you've seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since starting with Iron Man. It is much more geared towards adults. We call it PG-16. We don't quite get to R, but we kiss right up to it."

Marvel's Daredevil Netflix series stars Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Franklin "Foggie" Nelson), Ayelet Zurer (Vanessa Marianna), with Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple) and Vincent D'Onofrio (Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin). Marvel's first original series on Netflix is Executive Produced by series Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight, Drew Goddard (writer of first two episodes), and Marvel TV's Jeph Loeb, and will premiere on April 10, 2015.

Marvel's Daredevil follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell's Kitchen, New York City.
