Marvel's Daredevil, or simply Daredevil, is an American web television series created for Netflix by Drew Goddard, based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. It is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), sharing continuity with the films of the franchise, and is the first in a series of shows that lead to The Defenders crossover miniseries. The series is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios, with DeKnight Productions for the first season and Goddard Textiles for the first and second seasons. Steven S. DeKnight served as showrunner on the first season, with Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez taking over for the second season, and Erik Oleson joining the series as its showrunner for its third season; Goddard served as a consultant for the series.
Charlie Cox stars as Matt Murdock / Daredevil, a blind lawyer-by-day who fights crime as a masked vigilante by night. Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Rosario Dawson, and Vincent D'Onofrio also star, with Toby Leonard Moore, Vondie Curtis-Hall, Bob Gunton, and Ayelet Zurer joining them for season one, Jon Bernthal, Élodie Yung, and Stephen Rider joining the cast for season two, and Wilson Bethel and Jay Ali joining in season three. Daredevil entered development in late 2013, a year after the film rights to the character reverted to Marvel, with Goddard initially hired in December 2013. DeKnight replaced him as showrunner and Cox was hired to star in May 2014. Filming took place in New York City, in areas that still looked like the old Hell's Kitchen.
All episodes of the first season were released on Netflix on April 10, 2015, while the second season was released in its entirety on March 18, 2016. They were met with positive reviews. In July 2016, the series was renewed for a third season, which was released on October 19, 2018. A spin-off series, centered on Bernthal's character Frank Castle / Punisher and titled The Punisher, was ordered by Netflix in April 2016. On November 29, 2018, Netflix canceled Daredevil.
One of the main underlying themes of this series is Matt Murdock's spiritual journey based on his Catholic faith. A recurring theme in the series is Matt's conflict of conscience in truly fighting evil without participating himself in evil actions. His moral compass tells him that he must not murder another human being in order to bring about justice. He sees that the only way to stop certain villains is with force, but he is conflicted about being himself the devil when forced to respond to violence with violence. And here the title of the series comes into play, between Matt's being a daredevil coming to a fine line with his being a devil.
Another significant theme is that of Matt's physical blindness: Matt lives in a world of darkness, afraid that he himself might succumb to the darkness. While his physical blindness gives him superior physical abilities, he is however afraid of interior blindness in not seeing the way of righteousness, similar to Jesus' reproach of the Pharisees:

Season 1 Episode 2 "Cut man"
After Daredevil took out a covert russian operative who came searching for him at Claire's apartment, there is a scene of a dialogue between Daredevil and Claire in which he asks her explicitly, why she has decided to help him. The conversation touches on who Daredevil is, a little bit along the lines of the evangelical "Who do you say that I am?" (Template:Bible quote).
As a vigilante, Daredevil seeks to bring justice to those who are in need of justice, resorting to the use of force to counter those who perpetrate injustice in the city. He is in someway a messiah figure, though quite different from Jesus Christ in his approach to bringing about justice. Claire Temple admires Daredevil but is also a little bit afraid of him and his ways. When she mentions the people that have been helped by Daredevil, and Daredevil invites her to be not afraid, it sounds almost a bit like Jesus answering the doubts of the disciples of John the Baptist (Template:Bible quote).
When Claire shows her admiration for Daredevil's ability to take a beating and stay dignified, Daredevil attributes this to his Catholic upbringing. Perhaps he is referring in some way to Jesus' teaching about turning the other cheek in the context of the Sermon on the Mount (Template:Bible quote), even though he himself is willing to use force to stop the injustice of wrongdoers.

During the course of Season 2, Matt's decisions seem to have taken him along a path in which he feels that he has lost himself and betrayed his relationship with God. His near death at the end of Season 2 was almost intended to be a suicide, an act of despair. In fact, in the opening scene of Season 3, Matt
