Following on from the several second teaser yesterday, Netflix has released the full-length teaser trailer for Marvel’s first series on the SVOD platform – “Daredevil”. This appears to be a much darker and more grounded take on Matt Murdock’s story than the 2003 film. Netflix has also confirmed that the series will be made available for streaming in 4K resolution.
The show’s star Charlie Cox also recently spoke about his character’s powers as they will be shown on the series. Matt Murdock’s ‘sonar sense’ may be quite different to what you expect. He tells the Scratch the Surface podcast:
“We had to adapt certain things for the purpose of story telling. Like for example, and I’m making this up so there are no spoilers here, there is a scene where I come into the room, and lets say there are guns all over the floor on one side of the room and drugs on the other side of the room. I’m just making this up, I promise I’m just making this up.
So lets say that’s the scene. I come into the room, and I [Daredevil] can pick up on those things, based on a combination of his senses, smell, gunpowder in the air, taste of cocaine in the air or whatever, he can sense those things. But you can’t tell that story on camera without having a camera move that goes to them. Daredevil wouldn’t need to look in that direction in order to sense those objects, but the camera needs to.
So we had to come up with a way where he has to focus on things in order to kind of sense them, and by focusing he kind of cocks his head towards what it is he’s trying to get a sense of, trying to kind of create an image in his mind of what it is, so we can tell that story.”
The series premieres in full on Netflix on April 10th.
