I find Charlie Cox most interesting when portraying the attorney Matthew Murdock, a blind man with secretly enhanced senses--including a sort of echolocation. I love the camaraderie among Matt, his law partner Foggy, and their first client, Karen Page. Matt's difficult conversations with his confessor, and then with Foggy and Karen, enable the show to dramatically reveal his inner turmoil. On the other hand, mobbed-up developer Wilson Fisk (played by Vincent D'Onofrio) makes for a fascinating antagonist. Murdock and Fisk are creatures of the same urban neighborhood, both ambitious men of the same generation. Each wants to be a transformative figure, to transform and in fact improve the city, according to his values. But their values are fundamentally at odds. Murdock wants to serve the people of the city, to protect the innocent from predators. Fisk wants to tear up the city and build something new, the people who live there be damned. Murdock thus becomes an impediment to Fisk, as Murdock soon comes to perceive Fisk as a predator. Fisk's lawless wealth and Murdock's hidden talents transform the story into a vigilante's campaign against corruption. Rosario Dawson also does a terrific turn here as Clare Temple, a brave, sensible character who will recur throughout Marvel's Netflix shows. As far as funny costumes go, I kind of prefer Matt in his black woolens. His injuries make the case for alternative methods, or else a helmet and padding, but we need a superhero getup, so there you go. Still. This is pretty interesting stuff.
