I just saw 1-6 in a row. I have been reading the DD monthly comics since 2005 so its cool to see them linking MU with New York destroyed and there is other clearer signs after ep 3.Watching episode 3 now. I always think the title looks like it says Dared Evil, or even Da red evil but i prefer the first misreading.
This series had tried to link into the greater marvel universe with a few mentions of how everyone saw new York get destroyed but you'd almost need to know this and listen out for it rather than easily tying this to the films.
Still rather good though.
I imagine it must've been an additional challenge to Cox to do his fight scenes with that black mask covering his eyes too.Very much enjoying it. I know little about this hero aside from what I saw in the dreadful Affleck version. So, it's nice coming into a new story and character without knowing a whole lot about it.
I've watched 2 episodes so far and was really captured. At the end of episode 2, there is an amazing combat sequence. It's one, long, continuous shot. I can't even imagine how difficult that is to pull off with the choreography involved. When I first watched it last night, it reached the end and I asked Mr. Zombie if that was "one long shot." He said he thought so. Sure enough, when I looked today . . . confirmation.
And it was SIX MINUTES LONG.
It took 24 hours. 12 "takes." They only managed to get all the way through it three times.
Here is a writeup about it.
What is so amazing about this scene is that you can see the hero getting tired, fatigued. He's not the guy with perfectly placed hair, who isn't breaking a sweat. He's hurting. I imagine the actor slept well that night.
