DAREDEVIL Will be Dark and He is Addicted to Crime Fighting

Marvel's Daredevil revealed its first footage and official imagery at the 2014 New York Comic Con. Fans and critics seemed to really like what they saw and most described it as being dark and very violent.

Lead actor Charlie Cox spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about his role as Matt Murdock and Daredevil and how the tone of the Netflix Original Series will be darker than anything Marvel Studios' fans have seen yet.

"We’re trying to make a show that’s new and much, much darker than anything I’ve ever seen Marvel do before. The concept that he can’t stop. He’s going out and he’s taking the law into his own hands, and he doesn’t know if he can stop. He might be addicted to it."

Cox then went on to confirm there's lots of comic book reading and references to things that also happened in the comic book universe stories.

"I’ve read comics after comics after comics – I’ve never read so many comics in my life, and we’re finding moments from the comics to reference in the show."

At NYCC, it was confirmed that Marvel's Daredevil has a lot of influence from Frank Miller's The Man Without Fear comic book mini-series. Daredevil releases on Netflix in May 2015.
