After we had two famous heroes vouch to protect their city's over the past few years (one is green and one is red), Marvel's tv city's are finally safe as well.

We all know how the 2003 Daredevil movie starring Ben Affleck turned out, some loved it, some hated it. Which side of that argument you're on doesn't matter now, because the tv-adaptation looks gritty, badass, it looks good.

Netflix' first super hero show stars Charlie Cox as a Matt Murdock, blind lawyer. Using his increased other senses he fights evil at night in Hell's Kitchen (NYC) as Daredevil, a badass trying to do some good.

Since it's a teaser, the trailer doesn't really shows us much, but it does show us Cox rocking some sweet shades during the day, while donning a (most-likely temporary) suit to fight evil during the night.

The vibe the trailer tries to bring to the audience is certainly a dark one, with the ominous background music, and the weird voice, it seems like Netflix and Marvel are adjusting to 'the darker, the better'. We've seen the results of this after the Batman Trilogy in shows like Constantine, Arrow, The 100, Gotham.

Marvel usually keeps it pretty light, but we're halfway Phase 2, and there's a Civil War coming so it's time for some darkness.

Director Matthew Vaughn doesn't seem to agree with me, but judge for yourselves!

Now prepare to call in sick on April 10th, because all 13 episodes of Daredevil will be available then. Watch the trailer here if you've missed it, but be warned: you'll have to wait 2 months before it's really here!
