- We don’t deserve Daredevil
- Netflix turned a blind eye to popularity of Daredevil
That’s evident in the latest numbers from Parrot Analytics which reveal that Daredevil ranked fourth last week in viewer demand among all digital originals in the United States across all streaming platforms.
Demand for the sightless superhero series was surpassed only by three shows (Narcos, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Stranger Things, all from Netflix) during the week ending Dec. 1, the chart shows. The chart measures “desire, engagement and viewership” with weighted values that, for example, would give heft to the total “likes” a show accumulates but not as much weight as the total number of actual viewings.

- Charlie Cox versus Ethan Hawk
Cox said that while he’s been a fan of superheroes long before he stepped into Matt Murdock’s shoes, he gets why there might be resentment in the film industry towards the genre’s cultural dominance.
“One of the things that has happened in the last few years is that the movies that typically make lots of money tend to be big franchises,” Cox said. “That means Marvel movies, DC movies, comic book movies…Harry Potter. Hollywood makes so many of these big franchises that there isn’t much space – literally cinema space – for smaller independent movies.”
