I’ll still watch it because I still have reasonable faith in Marvel. And I like that there’s blood.
But that costume – ugh. I know it has comic roots, and they say he’ll change it later, but it looks even worse in motion. And I kinda hate confessionals as story devices. A little more D’Onofrio Kingpin might have sold me right off the bat.
Charlie Cox seems a’ight. Not much more to add there. However, I feel like Mr. T, wanting to yell, “Murdock! Quit playin’ the fool!”
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
