Marvel’s Daredevil | Previewing Netflix’s New Superhero Series

Listen to the Podcast

Welcome to the Podcast Without Fear!

Actually, there’s plenty of fear, as the notoriously craven Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) teams up with his longtime friend and comic book industry veteran Kevin Mahadeo (@kevmahadeo) to discuss DAREDEVIL, the Netflix and Marvel TV series debuting its entire first season on April 10.

In their first podcast together, Josh and Kevin talk about what to expect from DAREDEVIL, and their thoughts on blind attorney/vigilante Matt Murdock and his surrounding cast of characters. They even take a look back at the failed DAREDEVIL movie starring Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner, Michael Clarke Duncan and Colin Farrell, to see what it might tell us about the new Netflix series, if anything.

It’s the first of many DAREDEVIL podcasts here on Post Show Recaps, as Josh and Kevin plan to watch and discuss one episode of the series every day. Send along any thoughts or questions through our feedback form or in the comments section below, and stay tuned for our first podcast about the series premiere!

    In regards to the Daredevil series interacting with the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the comics version of the character has 2 noteworthy ties (besides Spider-Man) – don’t think this’d be considered a spoiler, but for non-comics readers, I’ll leave space just in case.

    + SPOILER:

    Black Widow became a big part of DD’s life as a crimefighting partner and romantic partner – if she were introduced in a later season, it could lead to Daredevil getting involved in (international) espionage (SHIELD) or high-stakes superhero (Avengers) stories – but prolly not due to budgetary reasons.

    Budgetary reasons would also be another possible reason why the Widow (Scarlet Johanson) might not show up (at least until the character gets re-cast by another actress).

    Also, DD overlaps with elements of Iron Man – both have Count Nefaria & The Maggia (Marvel’s version of the Mafia) as enemies as well as Man-Bull, the Ani-Men & others.

    Super excited about the show. Love the character and everything in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so much. Can’t only watch one episode a day though; it was fine for House of Cards but this is much more important! Still looking forward to hearing what you guys have to say though and keeping the conversation going In the coming days.

    I remember the Daredevil movie being pretty good but we also just rewatched it and thought it was terrible. What they did with Bullseye was almost worse than what they did with Elektra. And this was the director’s cut so I can assure you that you didn’t miss out.

    I wrote this article for a Swedish entertainment website about all the previous failed attempts to make Daredevil tv shows and even if you don’t know Swedish, it’s totally worth looking at the pictures for those who haven’t seen them before: http://tvdags.se/artikel/daredevil-har-antligen-blivit-tv-serie-men-kanner-du-till-dessa-misslyckade-forsok
