Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), lawyer who was blinded as a youth by a chemical spill. The freak accident enhanced Matt’s other senses giving him super-human abilities.
As an adult, Murdock practices law in New York City, by day, but, by night, he is a vigilante known as Daredevil (“The Man With No Fear”) who battles crime in Hell’s Kitchen section of the city.
Franklin “Foggy” Nelson (Elden Henson) is Murdock’s close friend and law partner. District Attorney Blake Tower (Stephen Rider) provides Daredevil with information to find and capture criminals.
Daredevil strives to rid the city of crime, especially, the criminal empire run by mob boss Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio), aka “Kingpin” who is assisted by his dastardly right hand man, James Wesley (Toby Leonard Moore).
Frank Castle (John Bernthal), a former policeman turned vigilante known as the Punisher, also roams the streets of Hell’s Kitchen seeking out criminals to crush. Frank believes that Daredevil is not hard enough on crime. As Frank said, “You hit ’em and they get back up, I hit ’em and they stay down.”
Frank Castle: I gotta say, sometimes… sometimes I think you really just might be the Devil.
Daredevil: Sometimes I think I might be, too.
Elektra Natchios (Élodie Yung), a mysterious and psychopathic woman from Murdock’s past tracked him down. He was puzzled as to how she found him because he wears a mask. To which, Electra replied, “Well, you can’t mask that ass. I’d know it anywhere.”
Note: In flashback sequences, actor Skylar Gaertner plays a young Matt Murdock.
