When I first heard that Marvel was doing
a TV show with Netflix based on the Daredevil
property, I got confused. Before the announcement, I always thought that they
would introduce him through a movie instead of a show. Fast forward years later, and I can safely say that I fully understand
Sure, I would love to see Daredevil on the big screen again one day, but in an era
of flashy superpowers, mighty gadgets, and all that being shown on the big
screen, I don’t know if Daredevil would work for the big screen (even
though I would love to be wrong).
Anyway, let’s go on to the review.
This season is close to perfect. It’s the most personal of the seasons so far,
with a story that got you unsure of how it would go in the end. The action is as
brutal and thrilling as ever. If you had seen the season with me, you would
have heard a lot of ouches, “that got to hurt,” etc.
However, the best thing of all (like always) is the acting. If the casting
director hasn’t gotten an Emmy for the casting, give that person one as soon as
possible. The ones that shine the brightest are the main lead himself, Charlie
Cox, as well as Vincent D’Onofrio, who plays the menacing mastermind Wilson
Fisk, also known as Kingpin.
While I do love this season, and I recommend it for those who are fans of the Netflix
Marvel Universe, I do have some issues with it. I won’t speak of what for now considering
it would go into spoiler territory but don’t you worry. You will know what if
you listen to our planned spoiler podcast. (Stay tuned for details on that.)
Daredevil is a show that continues to deliver and is a no-brainer to watch if
you are a fan of the Netflix part of Marvel’s universe. I would even say that
Daredevil, in particular, is something worth watching no matter if you like the
movie side of the MCU or not.
