Daredevil is produced by Marvel Television in association with Goddard Textiles, DeKnight Prods, And ABC studios.

The central character Matt Murdock was blinded as a boy during a tragic accident. Although he can no longer see, it wasn’t all bad for Matt, because his other senses were significantly heightened. During the day Matt Murdock is a respected lawyer who dutifully fights injustice, but by night he is a masked vigilante defending New York City’s streets.
Daredevil strikingly resembles Batman Begins, but this is a norm for superhero stories. There are several different ways in which the two share similarities, one of which is the first action scene which transpires on a shipping dock. The original Daredevil of Marvel’s comics begins in a very simple black outfit and then as time goes on he moves to his trademark red attire. In the new TV series, however, viewers can expect to see this red outfit earlier than they’d first imagined. More is found out about Karen Page’s back-story than Matt’s in the very first episode. Another interesting tidbit about the new series is that there are a lot of references to the Avengers. Characters in Daredevil talk about “The Incident” referring to New York City’s alien invasion.
Up to this point Daredevil has been received considerably well according to Rotten Tomatoes, which gives it a 97% approval rating and IMDb which gives it 9.2/10 stars.
