Blinded by a radioactive isotope, Matt Murdock grew up in a world run by fear. He studied to be a lawyer and trained to be a vigilante to combat the criminals who controlled the streets. He discovered that to defeat his enemies, he would become a man without fear.

The popular red-costumed Marvel Comics hero will hit the small screen tomorrow. Anticipation is huge for this series, the first in a new set of four new programs (60 episodes total) including A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist culminating in a team-up called the Defenders.


This ‘street level Avengers’ series promises to be a new and exciting part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

… And no, it has nothing to do with the Ben Affleck movie.

Today, fans finally got a glimpse of the red costume.

  1. I just wish Disney/Marvel had put this on ABC where I could watch it. Even putting it on one of their cable channels like ABC Family would have been better than Netflix since I don’t subscribe to that.

    I wish they were going to do the yellow costume before the red one, though.
