There's been a lot of speculation about when Daredevil will start streaming on Netflix, but the premiere date has finally been announced for the Man Without Fear's debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
At the TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour today, Netflix announced the debut date for the first of their new Marvel TV series, Daredevil, and it's earlier than expected. The 13-episode season will debut on Friday, April 10th in all territories Netflix is available in. Previous reports had the series debuting in May.
USA Today didn’t really cover any new ground with Daredevil… mainly confirming everything we already know and letting us in on what we won’t be seeing:
Daredevil will be followed by Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Iron Fist, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and a combined Defenders series, each to be released about a year apart. Free of content restrictions, the shows have more “leeway” for violence and sex, “but people shouldn’t come to this expecting me to deliver the Spartacus of Marvel,” says Daredevil executive producer Steven DeKnight. But “we’re able to explore morally gray areas, where you’re rooting for the bad guy and questioning the good guy, which is more difficult on network TV.”

And here's a still version of the Daredevil poster:
Along with the release date, Marvel also dropped an atmospheric little motion poster (above), and official poster (below), to remind us all to set our calendars.

USA Today’s Brian Truitt giving the premiere date for Daredevil as April 10th. I’m just going to go ahead and cancel my plans for that weekend.
