James Purser: Dare Devil

Thu, 2015-04-16 23:30

So we've been watching Dare Devil over the last couple of nights, we're up to episode 3 and I have to say I'm really impressed.

I've never been a big fan of Dare Devil the character, and dear god the movie was complete shite (up there with the first Hulk movie featuring Eric Bana for badness), but this series has really sucked me in.

For episode 3 what really brought it home for me was Ben Urich. A journalist for the Daily Bugle in the comics, Urich represents the every man and is often used to tell the story of the normal people caught up in the semi regular destruction rained down upon New York (which has included the Hulk taking over, everyone in Manhatten being turned into Spider creatures, the almost annual flooding by Namor and of course an alien invasion or two).

I'm really liking the shorter series formats for the Marvel shows as well (well leaving aside Agents of Shield). They carry the comic book story arc feel much better than trying to drag things out for 23 episodes. Agent Carter proved that and now so is Dare Devil.

All in I'm pretty happy with the state of Marvels Cinematic Universe, and am looking forward to seeing the next tranche.
