Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock in Daredevil

Netflix has released the trailer for its new Daredevil series which will be available on April 10th. Netflix has four TV shows in the works with Marvel; this is the first one. Set in New York City's Hell's Kitchen neighborhood, Daredevil is the superhero alter ego of blind attorney Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox).

In the comics Murdock is blinded by a radioactive substance in a freak accident.Although he is blind, the accident left him with enhanced senses, including a built in radar. His super senses allow him to navigate easily and function as a sighted person. He can even read print in some comic versions. In the tv show trailer we see Murdock being told his super senses are gifts by Stick (Scott Glenn), who agrees to train him in martial arts.

Murdock is an attorney by day and a vigilante by night. Like the Arrow, he is extremely fond of his city and very unhappy when people fail it. In the trailer he shares his thoughts on morality saying, "Good and Evil. Sometimes the difference between the two is a sharp line. Sometimes it's a blur. Sometimes you have to do things that are outside the law." He notes that he has to be the man the city needs. He says he will do "whatever it takes" to make the city a better place.

The cast includes Deborah Ann Woll (Jessica in True Blood) as Karen page, Elden Henson as Foggy nelson, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple and Vincent D'Onofrio as Wilson Fisk/Kingpin. Take a look:
