Daredevil | Netflix

The latest hero from the pen of the legendary comic master Stan Lee to come to video is Matt Murdock (played by Charlie Cox), a blind lawyer by day but the crime-fighting hero Daredevil on the streets of New York City at night. Daredevil arrives on Netflix Friday, and the buzz is positively deafening. Unlike most Marvel heroes, Daredevil has no super-powers. He does, however, has a super-thirst for justice and metes it out on his own terms at night. Vincent D’Onofrio is Wilson Fisk, the brutal businessman who wants to own Hell’s Kitchen in the city. No surprise here: the two clash. Also starring in Daredevil are Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, a woman who needs his help; Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson: Murdock’s law partner and Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple,  nurse who helps Murdock. Scott Glenn appears as Stick, Murdock’s mentor.
