‘Daredevil’ is an American superhero-action drama web series that has been created by Drew Goddard. Based on the character from the Marvel comics, the show shares continuity with the MCU and is the first series that led to ‘The Defenders’ crossover. The series airs on Netflix and first premiered on April 10, 2015.
The show is about a blind lawyer who has honed his other senses to a supernatural degree, besides mastering martial arts techniques. He tries to help the needy through legal measures by day, but by night he is a crimefighter. Call him a hero, or a vigilante, he soon picks up the moniker of ‘the devil of Hell’s Kitchen’, and as the series progresses, we see our protagonist not only fight against villains but the darkness within him as well, since it is not just a battle with our external demons, but one with our internal demons that make us who we truly are.
While fans showed a lot of love for the action sequences in the series, critics praised it, saying, “With tight adherence to its source material’s history, high production quality, and a no-nonsense dramatic flair, Daredevil excels as an effective superhero origin story, a gritty procedural, and an exciting action adventure.”
Daredevil Cast: Who is in it?
The cast of ‘Daredevil’ is led by Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock or Daredevil. He is a lawyer by day and superhero by night, but what is most striking is how his Catholicism and faith both informs his actions and torments him. No one can get through life without friends, not even a loner like Matt. He has one best friend who we know as Foggy Nelson, played by Elden Henson. Although Nelson serves as comic relief for the most part, he also serves as a moral compass at times.
Deborah Ann Woll appears as Karen Page, a woman who has trouble chasing her. She runs into Matt, and soon she becomes one of the strongest female characters in the series with a rich backstory and someone who has displayed dogged determination to seek the truth.
Rosario Dawson appears as Claire Temple, someone who Matt goes to get patched up, due to her medical expertise. Eventually, Claire serves as a grounding influence on Matt’s life and is heroic in her own way.
