Check out the All-New ANTiFanboy Podcast
Back in 2006, a group of angry young comic book nerds started a podcast with the focus of highlighting which comics that released that week were the must-read books but as the show grew in popular, it expanded into a show about video games, movies, television, comics, and everything else in between. Just remember one thing: We don't talk. We argue!

New Daredevil Trailer Drops

And boy does it look dark.

I think superhero properties can sometimes be one of the hardest things to promote. Most of these characters need loud bombastic trailers showcasing insane special effects and huge battles and by the time the trailer hits somebody says something cute or funny and BAM! Coming 20xx, Fade to black… When you don’t have that? It kind of feels off, I know it’s not supposed to have all that stuff and it’s street level and grittier, so when the trailer DOES hit all these points? It rings hollow, maybe because the budget is obviously smaller or that it just feels different with a character like Daredevil. Clearly I’m not going to judge too harshly because the show is designed around the no breaks/binge format that has worked very well for them in the past.

What do you think?
