MARVEL'S DAREDEVIL
April 10, 2015  | By David Bianculli

Netflix, 3:00 a.m. ET

 

SERIES PREMIERE: Netflix unveils Season 1 of Marvel’s Daredevil in its entirety today, starring Charlie Cox as the superhero with a difference. The difference is, he has no superpowers – and, in fact, is legally handicapped, because he’s blind. But he’s also, thanks to radiation from the accident that blinded him as a boy, unusually attuned with his remaining senses, which allows him to navigate through his world, and the world of crime he seeks to oppose, with jaw-dropping ease. This is the first of five Marvel Comics Netflix presentations planned by this collaboration of media titans – and it starts well, with a smart tone, some impressive fight sequences, and, in Cox, a charismatic leading man.  Co-stars include Deborah Ann Woll, last seen as the red-haired young vampire on True Blood.
