A few months ago the surprise jumped when it was announced that ‘Daredevil’ and the rest of the Marvel superhero series originally released on Netflix were going to leave said streaming platform. It was a matter of time before they ended up on Disney+ and in Spain it will finally be this wednesday june 28 when they are available there for all your subscribers.
And it doesn’t come alone
That means that both ‘Jessica Jones’ and ‘Iron Fist’, ‘Luke Cage’, ‘The Punisher’ and ‘The Defenders’ will be able to be seen on Disney +, but I wanted to take the opportunity to once again highlight how good ‘Daredevil’ is . I personally believe that none of the live-action series that Marvel has subsequently done comes close to the greatness achieved by the title starring charlie cox.
It is no longer just that it has some action scenes so impressive and visceral that they catch and lead us to think that Marvel should give much more of themselves in this aspect, it is that it also lets its characters breathe and does not limit itself to relying on archetypes to present them to the public. Obviously, Cox is the great axis of the series, but nothing would be the same without the contributions of Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson and above all, Vincent D’Onofrio.
This Daredevil and Kingpin rivalry He gives us several joys throughout the three seasons that came to be made. They are precisely two characters that Marvel has recently recovered, the first in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ and the second in ‘Hawkeye’, but I am very afraid that it is unlikely that we will see a confrontation between the two again.
In addition, ‘Daredevil’ grows as the seasons go by, adding new characters – watch out for the arrivals of Elektra from Elodie Yung and the Punisher of Jon Bernthal in the second season – and evolving the relationship with the existing ones. Hence also its inevitable cancellation was very painful when the series was precisely going through its best moment and had planted the seeds for a very exciting future.
And it is that the idea that Disney + picks up the story where it left off seems little short of impossible. Despite this, ‘Daredevil’ is well worth retrieving if you still have it pending.
