HOLLYWOOD, February 4, 2015 – Netflix has just released a trailer for its upcoming “Daredevil” series. Set to debut on April 10 as the first of four sets of episodes, Netflix’ take on Marvel’s only blind superhero will release Series 1 as a package, which is sure to encourage binge-viewing by fans of this unlikely crime-fighter.

Daredevil aficionados likely will remember the earlier failed silver-screen edition of “Daredevil,” which featured Ben Affleck laboring uncomfortably in the title role. (Which may not augur well for his debut appearance as Batman in an upcoming movie reboot.)

This time around, Netflix has cast British actor Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock, the unlikely superhero who works as a New York City lawyer by day and becomes a masked vigilante at night—one who depends on extraordinarily heightened senses to make up for his lack of sight. Cox was most recently seen here as an Irishman with IRA ties on HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire.”

As for his evil nemesis, The Kingpin, Netflix has intriguingly cast quirky, protean actor Vincent d’Onofrio in that role, virtually guaranteeing a formidable antagonist. TV fans will remember d’Onofrio as the unpredictable Detective Robert Goren in the peripatetic “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.”

Without further ado, here’s the new Netflix’ trailer—which, in our opinion, is disappointingly vague and dark. But maybe we’ll get more details in successive trailer-teasers.
