We’re still waiting for an actual trailer from Marvel and Netflix’s upcoming Daredevil series, but now we at least know when we'll get to see the series. Plus, here are some goodies to tide us over.

Netflix has finally announced a release date for the 13-episode Daredevil series, which'll go live on April 10. No word yet on whether they'll space out the episodes or drop them all at once for ultimate binge watching. Regardless — woohoo!

The new pic, released via a larger feature at USA Today focused on Netflix’s expanded slate of original content, shows Charlie Cox (Daredevil) throwing Paul Mann (Piotr) to the ground in what appears to be a darkened alley. Cox is wearing his early Daredevil costume, which is essentially just all black gear and a black bandana tied around his face.

We still haven’t gotten a peek at the full Daredevil costume (assuming they even introduce it this season), though the back-to-basics look seems to be a good fit for the “grittier,” street-level tales of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Considering that Marvel's second television series, Agent Carter, is looking like a big improvement over Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we can't wait to see what they do with Daredevil.

Though it won’t feature anything too gratuitous, executive producer Steven DeKnight told USA Today they plan to “explore morally gray areas, where you're rooting for the bad guy and questioning the good guy,” which is something they believe would’ve been a bit harder to pull off on network television.

Along with the release date, Marvel also dropped an atmospheric little motion poster (above), and official poster (below), to remind us all to set our calendars.
