3 Awesome Moments From the Marvel Netflix Shows That Have Us Excited for Daredevil: Born Again

The Marvel Netflix shows were phenomenal and they are a huge reason that Daredevil: Born Again has been one of the most anticipated upcoming Marvel projects since it was announced at SDCC 2022. The news that the show will be 18-episodes long and will once again star Charlie Cox in the lead role of the Man Without Fear has fans of the character hyped around the world.

There is a reason that fans were so vocal about getting Charlie Cox back in the role of Matt Murdock and that is due to his phenomenal performance as the character in the Netflix Marvel shows. In celebration of Born Again, we have decided to look back at the Marvel Netflix shows and reminisce on just how much we loved them.

1. Daredevil: Hallway Fight Scene

This scene is undoubtedly one of the major reasons that fans are excited to see more of Charlie Cox’s Daredevil. This sequence from the second episode of Daredevil’s first season is iconic at this point and rightly so. It takes place before Matt ever gets any sort of a proper costume with built-in armour. Thus, his raw determination and resolve are on full display here.

Not to mention that this scene is also fantastic purely on a technical level. From the subtle use of score to the clever use of low lighting, these elements combine to build the foreboding atmosphere of the sequence. Married with the beautiful long take which captures the glorious choreography on display, this is one of the greatest scenes from any of the Marvel Netflix shows.

2. Punisher: Prison Ambush Scene

From a scene shrouded in darkness to a scene flooded in fluorescent white light. This sequence, (which may be one of the greatest scenes featuring any version of the Punisher ever filmed,) doesn’t come from either of the two seasons of Punisher’s own show. Instead, it takes place within the second season of Daredevil in episode nine.

Punisher agrees to help Wilson Fisk eliminate a mutual enemy called Dutton. Fisk informs Frank that the target was involved in the Castle family’s murder and as expected, Frank takes his revenge. As Dutton bleeds to death, he tells Frank what he already knows to be true; that his crusade of vigilante revenge will never come to an end.

Frank then gets an idea of Fisk’s true nature, after he has the guards lock him in the narrow prison corridor as he watches from a platform above. The rest of the cell doors slide open and Frank is ambushed by a number of assailants armed with shanks. What follows is a ballet of brutality.

As Frank takes down the attackers one by one, his animalistic nature is on full display. His once pristinely white prison jumpsuit is soaked in red by the end of the fight as Frank lays down in exhaustion amongst the bodies of the inmates he has just been forced to kill. This is one of the most memorable moments from any of the Marvel Netflix shows for good reason.

3. Jessica Jones: Jessica Tries To Make Kilgrave Use His Powers

David Tennant’s take on Kilgrave in Jessica Jones is a vastly underrated element of the Marvel Netflix shows and the MCU in general. He was one of the lynchpins of what made that show great, with his unrelenting cruelty and interesting character motivation. His powers were also well implemented, however the scene in question actually doesn’t display any of his powers and that is what makes it great.

In episode nine of the first season of Jessica Jones, Jessica finally has Kilgrave captured in such a way that he no longer poses a threat. She must force him to display his power and so she enters his cell to antagonize him.

Although the whole setup of Jessica beating Kilgrave in a cell he is confined to would imply that she is in control of the situation, this is not the case. Instead, Kilgrave is in complete control of the situation as he is using their shared past to antagonize Jessica to the point where Trish is forced to subdue her.
