Kingpin’s Making Evil Plans In New Images From Marvel’s ‘Daredevil’
It’ll only be a few weeks until we finally get to see if Marvel and Netflix’s first ever partnership, “Daredevil,” will be worth all the hype (Although judging from the most recent trailer, things are certainly looking good). In the meantime, these new stills that were uploaded to the “Marvel’s Daredevil” Facebook and Twitter pages over the past twenty four hours, and they definitely have us — especially the nerds, of course — asking a lot of questions.
First up, a picture of Vincent D’Onofrio as Kingpin Wilson Fisk, speaking to an original character named “Madame Gao” (Wai Ching Ho):
“Alliances are being formed in Hell’s Kitchen” reads the accompanying text. We know that Madame Gao isn’t in the comics, but she’s been described as “a powerful woman running her own trade.” So what do we think her deal is?
Villains aren’t the only ones making alliances, though — in this image released last night, we see Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson), Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll), and reporter Ben Urich (Vondie Cutris Hall) at the law offices of Nelson and Murdock.
In the comics, Ben Urich is a beleagured journalist who discovers the truth about Daredevil’s secret identity, but chooses not to publish it for the good of the city. Foggy Nelson, however, remains in the dark about his partner’s crime-punching past time for most of the character’s history (until 2001 or so, when comic book writers started to play around with the idea that Murdock’s alter ego really isn’t all that secret), so we’re guessing they’re are probably talking about something other than Daredevil. But what else could be bringing Urich to Nelson and Murdock?
Looks like we’ll have to wait until April 10th to find out.
