Trailer for the Netflix series is up!
Dark n' gritty from the looks of it.
All episodes available on April 10 (in the same vein as other Netflix series).


WOOOOTTTTTT!!!! Looks AWESOME!!!

can't bloody wait... same actor who played "Owen", the Irish hitman in the show "Boardwalk Empires". One of the best actors in the show IMO... and also the reason many ladies will pick up on that show and keep watching... ;)

Good choice Marvel... good choice! :)

Sovereign Court

Not that thrilled to be honest. Always found Daredevil to be one of the lamer Marvel heroes. A blind guy who can see and uses martial arts. Sorry.

Can't wait for Luke Cage though.


Gritty! Woooooooo!

Blindsight 600ft. with Improved Unarmed Strike, Hellcat Stealth, Evasion, Twist Away, Combat Expertise, Dodge, Mobility, Flurry of Blows (with several levels in Monk), Sneak Attack 10d6, Swinging Reposition via Billy Clubs, Toughness, Endurance, Run, and a lot of Ki stuff. Oh, and Skill Focus: Profession (Lawyer), with maxed ranks in that and also Diplomacy, Acrobatics, Climb.

Still prefer Luke Cage? (i.e. brawler 10 with DR 10/-)? boring... ;)

Sovereign Court

Pathfinder Pawns Subscriber

(I meant the fighter (brawler) archetype of course... he just pummels stuff... no fancy martial flexibility with that Luke Cage guy... ;) )

Sovereign Court

Yeah, and has impenetrable skin. Also never much liked martial arts superheroes.


Not to mention ridiculous strength, even by Pathfinder standards.
Something like a 50?

Of course, if you just prefer one character concept over another, stats aren't really the issue.

he can lift a car, that's about it... and only when showing off to the ladies in a sideshow... he doesn't have the Car Swinging or Car Throwing weapon proficiency, unlike beings of Spider-Man equivalent STR or greater...

Cages strength has always been on the low side. His invulnerability has fluctuated between steel-hard and "only diamond/vibranium/adamantium can penetrate"

Love cage as a "street level" superhero.

Sovereign Court

Um, he is several times stronger than spider man.

Nowhere near spidey-strength. Spidey should be class 20, iirc.

Sovereign Court

Luke is in a 25 ton range.


They've both been up and down, both with actual plot reasons and because that's just how they were written and drawn, but they've usually been in roughly the same weight class.

Which is "really ridiculously high Str" in PF terms, since this started with builds for Luke and DD.

Sovereign Court

Around 1140 str :D

wow.

Someone upped his power level. When did this happen?

Sovereign Court

Dunno. He used to be a 3, but now is more around 25. I mean look at him in both Ultimate Spider Man and Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Much stronger than a 3.


So, this guy basically puts on an extra long knit hat over his eyes...in theory someone should unmask him (take it off his face, much less his head, takes all of 1 second in a fight) and everyone knows who he is.

Then they shoot him while he walks and boom....no more guy.

Commercial didn't impress me...if you couldn't tell.

It wasn't clear to me if this was supposed to be his initial, improvised, hasn't really decided to do this regularly, outfit or if he's going to be avoiding the costume and dressing like that full time.

And, assuming he's actually got the Daredevil supersenses package, shooting him while he walks won't be so easy. Biggest problem would be dodging the sniper while not revealing the id.


I am beyond ecstatic for this. Daredevil is one of my all time favorite characters. And I've always felt he was the perfect character for a TV series due to the fact that his life without the mask has as much drama as his life with the mask.

Looks like they are loosely following the Frank Millar/Jr Jr Daredevil Man Without Fear 1-5 storyline. And that's good because it's as much an origin of the Kingpin as it is Daredevil.

Trailer looks great.

It looks great. They got an amazing actor for this. For the haters, I'm kinda puzzled: your main complaints seem to be about Daredevil's powers. It's a show about DAREDEVIL, so if you're not "feeling it" with the comics, chances are this may not convert you. But it also might. :)

Sovereign Court

Never liked Daredevil as a character either. Never felt anything for him really.


The "mask/disguise" shown in the trailer is his initial get-up, he'll get a more proper suit later on. I can't link to where I read it, but it's been described as such a couple of places (along with pictures of him with "hood" down over his eyes).
I'm also very much looking forward to Vincent D'Onofrio as Wilson Fisk/Kingpin (you only see him from behind in the short clip at a gallery).

EDIT:
A few links - 1 2

Do we know anything about the release dates for Luke Cage / Iron Fist / Jessica Jones / The Defenders, yet?

Given the fact that the movies have given us exactly 0 heroes with a secret identity so far (at least none are springing to mind imediately), the Defenders might end up playing into Civil War.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook Subscriber

Jessica Jones may be out by the end of 2015, but that's a stretch. Netflix hasn't given formal dates for the series, just a sort of rough idea when they expect it.

They are now just wrapping up the casting for that one (David Tennant as The Purple Man...hell yeah)

I actually don't think we are going to get any sort of Super hero registration act. I think Civil War will have as much to do with the comics as Age of Ultron is an adaptation of the comic plotline of that name.

Oh we're talking about Ultimate Universe. That explains it, I tend to pay very little attention to Ultimates.


Same here.

However, I would find a version of the character that had the strength but not the invulnerability to be interesting.


He's stronger in the regular universe too. As I said above, Luke's fluctuated over the years, both with and without plot excuses.

It's not that uncommon. The various official numbers for characters are never really more than rough guidelines.

3 to 25 is a HUGE jump. Fluctuations I'll buy, this is akin to a rewrite.

I went from 3 to 25....it just took 22 years...

Yeah, he's had a couple "radiation accidents" over the years.

I've kind of lost track and haven't followed all of it, but at some point he went through the original process again (which somehow also got him an indestructible jacket?) and got the "Power Man virus", whatever that is.

It was a genuine upgrade.

uh... ok... then there's no real point in you posting on this thread... other than the potential awesomeness you may feel when you see the show! ;)

Apparently Jessica Jones is currently filming.


Coooooooool.

My 3am viewing of the first show was awesome. I expect my reviewing of that show at a more reasonable hour will be even greater. Wow this show is really amazing. I want to talk about it but I'll wait....... I'll wait...

Amazing acting and story driven! (And yes this show takes into account what has happened in New York in light of some other previous MCU movie(s) )

;)

How can one, who doesn't have netflix, watch this masterpiece?

The first month of Netflix used to be offered for free if i recall...

I woke an hour before work to watch the first episode. I so regret not being sick today.

Sovereign Court

It's not available where I'm from. At all.

Shadow Lodge

Wait for a possible DVD/Blu-Ray release, I guess.

Sovereign Court

Yay

You must go on vacation to see a friend in another country and binge-watch it over the entire weekend perhaps! :)


Pathfinder Rulebook Subscriber

The first episode is pretty solid and starts to set up conflicts to come.

It's just the first episode but I'll just say this as disappointed as I am in POWERS is as excited I am about DAREDEVIL.

I mean they REALLY got this right so far.

The only thing i'm a little disappointed in is the fight choreography and staging. (I'm a big fan of well done fights which is one of the reasons I have issues with the Batman films and really like what they've done in ARROW. Even though they've stolen directly from movies like THE RAID...) They're not bad but not great. It's just the first episode and according to Christos Gage (one of the writers) the fights get better and decidedly more brutal.

So yeah...CAN'T WAIT.

Sovereign Court

Um Arrow fights are crap. Anyone fighting like Ollie does would be dead within seconds.

Not to mention his bow would break the first time he tried to use it after one of his melees with it.

Of course movie and TV fights arent realistic. About 75% of the moves used in these fights are impractical and wouldnt work in a real fight. Having boxed and gotten my ass beat in actual street fights trust me I can tell the difference.

But as far as choreographed action for entertainment goes the fights on Arrow arent bad at all. I don't watch superhero movies / TV for realistic fights, I watch them for entertainment. Even MMA and traditional Boxing aren't "real" fights. There's no ref, there's no banned strikes or moves. Most importantly there's no standing eight count or ten count or refs to protect the fighters.

I mean for all that, his level of accuracy is unrealistic for the situations that he often gets in. It's hard enough to hit a moving target at range with a bow in low light under decent circumstances, much less when youre moving, your target is moving and people are shooting at you and youre jumping and or flipping around. None of it is realistic. But it's entertaining. That's why I watch.
