Religion is a touchy subject, especially when it comes to superheroes. But it looks like Netflix's upcoming Daredevil series is playing into the character's long-held religious roots.
In a new "motion poster" released on the show's Twitter page, a human silhouette is slowly illuminated by a neon cross, with the word "Forgiveness" placed below it. Take a look:
While it's easy to assume that's Daredevil dealing with forgiveness, there are some other interesting possibilities especially given the text on Twitter which accompanies it, referring to New York City "bleeds with sin."
Meanwhile, Netflix and Marvel have released a new TV spot for Daredevil which the titular star's arch-rival Wilson Fisk, A.K.A. the Kingpin, front and center inlaying out plans to destroy Hell's Kitchen, and rebuild it in his image.
There's not much new footage here, but what is new is mostly Kingpin-centric, showing the master criminal in a more casual setting before juxtaposing his rage with Daredevil's crusade to take him down.
See the full trailer right here:
Daredevil stars Charlie Cox as the titular man without fear, along with Vincent D'Onofrio as Kingpin. All episodes of Daredevil's first season will be available this Friday April 10 only on Netflix.
