With exactly one month to its premiere on Netflix, Marvel has released a new Daredevil trailer that nicely parallels Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), attorney-turned-vigilante Daredevil, and his nemesis, Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio). Both men grew up in Hell’s Kitchen; it’s in their blood; and both want to make it a better place. And therein lies the rub.
