Marvel’s ‘Daredevil’ Is Finally Here But What Do The Fans Think?
Have you been up since 3 in the morning plowing through every episode of “Daredevil?” If so, you’re in good company, because it seems like all the comic-loving nerds on Twitter have been doing the exact same thing — and they are LOVING the new Netflix series so far (spoiler alert, so did we!).
If you’re stuck at your day job and can’t tune into see Matt Murdock kicking butt in Hell’s Kitchen, living vicariously through these lucky people might help. Although, warning: if you suddenly can’t control the impulse to watch and get in trouble with your boss, it’s totally not our fault.
So, let’s see what the Internet has to say about “Daredevil”…
First some Marvel insiders tweeted in anticipation to get the fans pumped:
— Deborah Ann Woll (@DeborahAnnWoll) April 10, 2015
— Clark Gregg (@clarkgregg) April 10, 2015
I can't believe #Daredevil is about to be live. Feels like only yesterday I was on set for the last scene of the season.
— Ryan Penagos (@AgentM) April 10, 2015
While others cracked jokes:
1st episode of DAREDEVIL on @netflix was hysterical! Love that Titus is his new roommate now that he's out of the bunker– Wait. Wrong show.
— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) April 10, 2015
Daredevil, Daredevil, Does whatever a Darede can, Ok this one needs work
— Jamie McKelvie (@McKelvie) April 10, 2015
then Netflix pushed the button…
— Daredevil (@Daredevil) April 10, 2015
Seriously, they have a BUTTON.
And literally everyone went wild.

Eleven hours and 43 minutes. That's how much of your weekend you need to set aside for Daredevil.
— Andrew Wheeler (@Wheeler) April 10, 2015
Eat. Sleep. Daredevil. Repeat.

It’s clear that most fans are already obsessed with Charlie Cox:
You know what the Daredevil show really gets right? DAREDEVIL.
— Daniel Kibblesmith (@kibblesmith) April 10, 2015
Oh my God, this is 100% Daredevil. The spirit of the comics, on the screen. Charlie Cox is a perfect Matt Murdoch.
— Abigail Chandler (@Abby_Chandler) April 10, 2015
Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk is also getting some love (literally):
D'onofrio's Fisk is haunting. Absolutely spellbound by his performance.
— Jiggsy (@_Jiggsy) April 10, 2015
I AM SO SCARED OF WILSON FISK JESUS CHRIST VINCENT IS HORRIFYINGLY SCARY
— Matt Keisoglu (@_KSOG_) April 10, 2015
So is the rest of the cast, too:
— Ryan Penagos (@AgentM) April 10, 2015
There'll be a lot of Daredevil love today. Vondie Curtis-Hall deserves a chunk of it. He's great as Ben Urich.

— Blake Garris (@blakegarris) April 10, 2015
There’s also plenty of ships to… um, shoop?
— Lianna Sims (@LiannaAndrea326) April 10, 2015
Ample, ample fodder for Foggy/Karen shipping out there. Go forth, Internet. #Daredevil
— Erik Radvon (@radvon) April 10, 2015
And let’s not forget the action sequences!
— Joel Watson (@hijinksensue) April 10, 2015
The tv show is better than the horrible movie! So much action, the beginning credits haven't even started yet! Omg I need snacks! #Daredevil
— Ma'Zek (@MaZekMoon) April 10, 2015
So far, it seems like one scene in particular is blowing everyone away…
How the hell did that film that hallway scene? Incredible. Still not over it. #Daredevil
— ZankieFTW (@JasonTheDiva) April 10, 2015
Life lesson: If #Daredevil wants to walk down a hallway, LET HIM GO DOWN THE HALLWAY.

And, OF COURSE, there’s the obligatory fanart.
— FrancescoFrancavilla (@f_francavilla) April 10, 2015
— Amy Ratcliffe (@amy_geek) April 10, 2015
Even the TITLE sequence has some fans salivating…
— Andy Behbakht (@AndyBehbakht) April 10, 2015
Origins of his powers are dealt with in first 90 secs of pilot. That's economical storytelling, akin to the stuff Lee/Kirby did. #Daredevil
— Andrew Shaw (@androoshaw) April 10, 2015
And for good reason, to be honest.
Basically, when you get the chance to start watching, do it. You won’t be disappointed.
