A full trailer for Marvel’s Daredevil has debuted online, and there is a ton of new footage to dig through, including a better look at the Kingpin, Matt Murdock’s dad, and Daredevil’s training.
For brevity’s sake, we’re going to skip over a lot of the shots that were used in the previous trailer. You can read our breakdown of that footage here.
But first, here’s the trailer if you haven’t seen it yet.
Just like the previous trailer, this one opens up with a view of New York City.
Interestingly though, the focus here is on Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin, whose voice we hear over these shots. Despite being the “villain” of the series, the narration in this trailer makes it clear that Fisk isn’t a cookie cutter bad guy. He wants to make the city a better place, and that almost makes him seem like a hero. It’s his methods that make him the bad guy.
Here’s how Netflix describes him:
Central to this conflict is that Fisk truly believes he’s doing good for Hell’s Kitchen and at times may seem more of a hero to its people than Daredevil.
We’ve seen this shot of Kingpin before, but what is he doing with his hand there? A nervous tick? A signal?
This version of the Kingpin apparently doesn’t flaunt his identity like his comic book counterpart. He’s still a mystery to someone we’ll see later on in the trailer who is investigating the Kingpin’s criminal network.
We also see that Kingpin isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty. The comic book version of the character hires others do pretty much all of his dirty work, but maybe this guy is actually a bit of a vigilante himself. That would make him into an interesting foil for Matt Murdock/Daredevil, who strangely enough, we haven’t even see in this trailer yet.
Murdock finally makes an appearance with a little speech of his own.
“Good and evil, sometimes the difference between the two is a sharp line.” That seems to sum up the dynamic between Daredevil and Kingpin rather nicely.
Murdock in lawyer mode. Just like in the comics, Murdock is a criminal defense lawyer by day, and vigilante by night.
This Vondie Curtis-Hall as Ben Urich, a journalist investigating the Kingpin. In the comics, Ben Urich works for The Daily Bugle, the same newspaper as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. I bet Marvel and Netflix are wishing that deal went through a few months earlier…
Here we see what he’s gathered so far. The Kingpin is that the top of this criminal web, and working under him appears to be every single organized crime outfit in the city.
Wilson Fisk from the front.
Matt Murdock’s law partner is Foggy Nelson, hence “Nelson and Murdock, Attorneys at Law.” This might be when the two are first opening up their firm, given the paper sign on the door, and the nicer one we see later on in the trailer.
It’s too blurry to say for sure, but I’m guessing the woman seated in the middle is Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page. Page worked as a secretary for the Murdock and Nelson in the comics, but it sounds like she’ll have a pretty big role in the show.
Murdock and Nelson get a nicer sign.
Here’s Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson.
And here’s Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, a night-shift nurse who helps Daredevil.
‘Lil Matt Murdock.
This is Scott Glenn as Stick. In the comics, Stick is a ninjitsu master who trained Matt Murdock. I don’t know if they’re keeping the ninja angle, but he’s definitely still the one to train the future Daredevil
‘Lil Murdock training, with two sticks as weapons no less. Daredevil’s comic book weapons-of-choice were a pair of billy clubs that could attach to form nunchucks, a staff, or even a makeshift grappling hook. Previous looks at the series have confirmed that he’ll be using similar weapons in the show.
Another look at Karen Page.
Those don’t look like cops. It seems the Kingpin has his own private army.
Daredevil captured by said army?
I want to say that this is Toby Leonard Moore. Moore plays a character named Wesley, Kingpin’s right hand man.
