Join the Defenders as they talk 2003’s Daredevil the Director’s Cut! In 2003, after the success of X-Men and Spider-Man, Daredevil finally got his shot at the cinemas. It was a big success financially but critical reception was mixed to poor. A year later, we got a Director’s Cut which added nearly 30 minutes and Coolio. Did more of this movie make it palatable or did writer/director Mark Steven Johnson bite off more than he could chew? And how much comedy can be mined from a character whose last name sounds like a delicious snack? The Defenders call Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner to the stand! Join us next week for a look at Frank Miller/John Romita Jr’s “Daredevil: The Man Without Fear”! And then the following week, Daredevil premieres on Netflix! Excelsior!
Join us as we talk about Daredevil and the Kingpin’s first live-action appearance with guest Vickey Tree from Geek Syndicate in her first live-action podcast appearance! Is this 1989 TV movie so terrible that it’s found guilty or is nostalgia and campiness enough to get an acquittal from The Defenders? Excelsior!
