Daredevil: The Complete First Season is officially released on Blu-ray today, November 8 (and your HRAC CCO is wearing his official gray, black, and red long-sleeve DD henley, duly obtained at the recent New York Comic Con, to commemmorate the event as I type this). Season 1 of Daredevil was recently honored as Best New Media TV Series at the 42nd Annual Saturn Awards, hosted by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films.
The Netflix Original Series Marvel’s Daredevil follows Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), attorney by day and vigilante by night. Blinded in an accident as a child, Murdock uses his heightened senses as Daredevil, fighting crime on the streets of New York after the sun goes down. His efforts are not welcomed by powerful businessman Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) and others whose interests collide with those of Daredevil. Though Murdock’s day job portrays a man who believes in the criminal justice system, his alter ego suggests otherwise, as he takes the law into his own hands to protect his Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood and the surrounding communities.
Season 2 has since aired on Netflix, but its Blu-ray release has yet to be announced.
Herewith, a pair of clips from DD S1 to whet your whistle:
