In 2003, there was plenty of excitement for the movie Daredevil, starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner. The movie wasn’t a success, and the film received plenty of criticism from “meh” to “horrible.”
To remind you why Daredevil was a flop, Screen Junkies gives a harsh critique of the movie in under five minutes.
Cheer for a superhero who’s barely more powerful than your average cop as this poor, poor man’s Spider-Man fights crime with an odd grab-bag of power like super jumping, creepy smelling, and super heart-rate monitoring.
With such a historic flop, Netflix’s live action series has a lot to live up. Marvel’s Daredevil premieres Friday, April 10 on Netflix, and all 13 episodes in the first season will be ready for you to binge-watch.
Will the TV series bring in success for Daredevil? Or will it be a second flop?

According to The New York Times, if all goes well with this show, we could look forward to three additional Marvel series in the future: Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. Then all four will come together as a super-team in a mini-series called, “The Defenders.”
