Latino Review has revealed a first unofficial look at the New York filming of Marvel and Netflix‘s “Daredevil” television series, including photos and videos of a very important scene in the hero’s origin. The video shows the aftermath of the toxic waste accident, including a young Matt Murdock screaming, “I can’t see!” According to Latino Review, the filming was given the codename “Bluff” and took place on 115th and Adam Clayton Powell Blvd. Street signs were changed for filming to 43rd and 9th.
“We’re going into the show trying to create something that’s incredibly exciting, incredibly engaging, and will give our fans something that they love, something that’s unexpected, something that’s going to keep them coming back for more,” Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada told CBR in May. “That’s really, ultimately, the goal of this: How do we produce a ‘Daredevil’ TV show on Netflix, that’s going to be viewed the way that people view content on Netflix, in a way that’s going to be compelling, feels unique, while bringing something that is not only true to the character, but providing something unexpected as well.”
