A few days ago, Netflix released a brand new trailer for their gritty Marvel television series, Daredevil. A good chunk of it focused on Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin, who doesn't come off as full-on evil. He seems hell bent on making Hell's Kitchen being a better place.
But whatever you think you've been able to piece together from the trailers isn't exactly what you'll get. "There’s so much that you guys don’t know what you’re going to get," Vincent D'Onofrio told Uproxx. "There’s so much in our show. And there’s so much they’re not giving away. I mean, it gets so intense and so emotional. It’s really quite something. It goes to places you would never think it goes because of what Jeph Loeb and Steven DeKnight wanted to do. It really does."
Vincent thinks the series is embolden with more freedom because it will appear on Netflix."Under the umbrella of Netflix, they’re very supportive, and it’s not like doing a TV series at all," he explained. "It’s like doing a 13-hour film. So, I think that lends itself to being able to be much more specific and take your time in telling this long story. Now, having said that, they at the same time have to deliver a superhero aspect – a Marvel aspect to it – which, as we all know, is so dynamic and cool. So, that was the trick, to deliver the dynamic kind of Marvel superhero show and, at the same time, make it a serial that’s interesting and emotional and a real story."
He believes the Marvel universe will be getting "intricately emotional and much deeper" over the next five to seven years. Although, later on he says Marvel doesn't tell him of their plans, so that's a bit confusing.
As the latest trailer, many fans were excited by the references to Iron Man and Thor, which once again reinforces the connective tissue Marvel has been building between their films and television series. "Yeah, we’re definitely all in the same universe," Vincent stated. "It’s definitely happening all around us, which I think is a very cool thing because it’s two very kind of different approaches, but they’re in the same world. I think that’s very cool."
