From the moment the opening credits roll, featuring a blood soaked lady liberty, dripping city scapes, and ominous music, you know you’re in for something far more serious and different than Marvel’s typical fun, cheeky, and thrilling cinematic norm. Not that Marvel’s newest show isn’t fun or thrilling, it’s both in spades! However, this is a different type of good time. With its dark and gritty take, which is far removed from the tones of any of the Avengers’ stand-alone features, Daredevil is simply one of the best surprises of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Note: Character details and some situations are highlighted, but otherwise this is a spoiler free review. (more…)
Marvel’s Daredevil comes to Netflix on April 10th. On April 1st, however, Nerd Bastards.com (that’s us) will be bringing you a thorough review of the first 5 episodes which we we’re privileged to see in advance of the premier. We can’t really go into it until the press embargo is lifted April 1st, but we can say, it is good… damn good. Fans of the comics will be pleased. And Marvel fans in general, will be taken back with just how dark, gritty, and full of substance this show has to offer. In comparison to Marvels normal fair of fun, cheeky, and thrilling cinematic products, Daredevil is a bold and exciting new direction.
In advance of the premier, Netflix is really starting to kick up it’s marketing, including this brand new TV spot. It features a lot of footage we haven’t seen yet, the most intriguing of which is Scott Glenn as Stick, the man who trains Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) to fight. (more…)

Cotumes are a sensitive topic when it comes to superhero properties; get it right and you’ve got it made in the shade, but get it wrong, like in the case of David E. Kelly’s Wonder Woman pilot for example, and you’re sunk before you even get a chance to float. Two upcoming superhero projects are at the forefront of the costume question, as both having seemingly embraced some unconventional duds for their main characters. The trailer for the Fantastic Four movie shows the titular quartet looking positively “Derelique,” while the Man Without Fear in Daredevil looks like the man without imagination dressed in basic black. But are these heroes due for a costume change mid-story? Cast and crew say, “Yes.” (more…)
In a little less than a month, Daredevil will bow on Netflix and at once the launch will usher in the next phase of Marvel Studios multimedia strategic takeover while erasing the lingering bad taste left by the 2003 Mark Steven Johnson film starring Ben “Batman” Affleck. Although the main big bad of the series will be The Kingpin played by Vincent D’Onofrio, the Man Without Fear is going to need other bad guys to beat up over the course of his 13-episode first season. Marvel has announced a few additions to the cast list, but in other news Jessica Jones has spotted once again in the City of New York. Or, I guess make that Krysten Ritter in AKA: Jessica Jones.

He’s big, he’s bald, and well, maybe not so beautiful. I mean, if you consider a hellbent mob boss that can work your face like pizza dough with his hefty trash bag sized fists, then sure I guess there’s some beauty in that.
Marvel’s Daredevil premieres on Netflix on April 10. Leading up to the anticipated premier, fans have been treated to a refreshingly brooding style trailer, couple of motion posters, and a few official photos featuring lead characters like Foggy Neslon, the Night Nurse and the titular hero himself Daredevil. One big character (and I mean that literally) that we haven’t seen much of is the show’s lead villain Wilson Fisk, aka The Kingpin. The character was given a passing pan in the trailer for Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil series, but now USA Today have debuted our first proper look at Vincent D’Onofrio (Full Metal Jacket) as The Kingpin. We also have some quotes from the actor, so click on through and have a look-see. (more…)
