Join us in a brand new discussion feature – a spinoff of sorts from our popular Hangouts feature – in where we come together to discuss with you, the reader, whatever it is that’s currently buzzing around the world of comics and the movies and TV they inspire.
In the debut edition of Kabooooom’s ongoing discussion feature we’re talking Daredevil – the newest addition to the sprawling Marvel Cinematic Universe and the latest offering from Netflix Originals. All 13 episodes of the series dropped on Netflix’s instant streaming service last Friday and over the course of the weekend comic-loving nerds watched little else.
Judging by the initial reactions across social media and critics’ early reviews – the series is a hit! Forget the 2003 Ben Affleck-starring feature, because Netflix’s Daredevil is a grittier and more faithful adaptation of the man without fear. Daredevil establishes Hell’s Kitchen as a decidedly darker section of the MCU; one where it can difficult to distinguish between the heroes and villains and everyone gets beaten to a bloody pulp.
Now that most have had a chance to at least get a taste for this new chapter of the MCU, we want hear what your initial impressions are of Daredevil? What do you think of the casting of Charlie Cox as ‘lawyer by day, vigilant by night’ Matt Murdock? Do you like the series’ darker and edgier tone? How about Daredevil‘s depiction of Marvel’s iconic villain, Wilson Fisk as played by Vincent D’Onofrio? And that fight choreography! Chances are you loved the fight scenes, but let us hear from you in the comments below!
However, please mark any SPOILERS as such. Not everyone will have burned through all 13 episodes in a weekend binge-a-thon.
