Netflix is set to release Daredevil as an original series based on the Marvel Comics superhero. They have released their first promo trailer for the upcoming series, which you can check out above. 

Daredevil will be released on Netflix on April 10th with all episodes available to watch.  

The series stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock / Daredevil, a lawyer-by-day who fights crime at night. Show runner DeKnight stated that "He's not super strong. He's not invulnerable. In every aspect, he's a man that's just pushed himself to the limits, he just has senses that are better than a normal human's. He is human." On the character's "grey" morals, he said, "He's a lawyer by day, and he's taken this oath. But every night he breaks that oath, and goes out and does very violent things... I really liked the flawed heroes, the human heroes." 

On playing the Daredevil, Cox said, "There are so many aspects. There's the blindness and physicality. Making a show is about human emotion, conflict and turmoil. When meeting a man who's a lawyer by day and believes in law and justice and then a man by night is someone who takes the law into his own hands. He deals with battles dealing with that concept." 

Elaborating on the difficulties of playing the character, Cox said, "I put on a shirt but I can't look where the buttons are, because Daredevil wouldn't know where the buttons are, but I also can't fumble." Cox later explained that, unlike the comic book character, his version of Daredevil would not be a "man without fear", saying "Someone who does not have fear - literally does not experience fear - is not that interesting. The way I like to think about it is that he is a man with fear, but he on a daily basis decides to confront that fear and to overcome it. So the title of 'the man without fear' is almost a title that the public in his world gives him just because of what he does. But inside himself, he's very afraid at times. And he finds a way to confront those fears and punch through it."
