Not only are superheroes at the multiplex, they’re also all over television. In addition to Gotham and SHIELD, there’s going to be a series of Marvel shows headed to NetFlix, including the reboot of Daredevil.
This is one of Marvel’s best-known heroes, and it’s desperately in need of a reboot since the Ben Affleck version, but that goes without saying. Pictures have been up all over the net giving fans a “first look,” like the one you see in this story. (We’re assuming the costume will be evolving from here.)
In addition to coming under heavy scrutiny for playing Batman, Ben Affleck also knows his version of Daredevil isn’t beloved either. He told NPR, “Indeed I have regrets about Daredevil. I have regrets about all the movies that I don’t think were executed properly…Look, if I thought we were remaking Daredevil [with Batman Vs Superman], I’d be out there picketing myself…and that goes for other movies as well that I haven’t been happy with.”
For this incarnation of Daredevil, Charlie Cox is playing the title role, Vincent D’Onofrio will be playing Kingpin in this new version, which will air sometime next year on NetFlix.
