Marvel And Netflix Have Cast Their New “Daredevil”

May 28, 20140 Comments

Marvel and Netflix have cast actor Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire) as the leading man in their planned Daredevil series. Cox will star as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, the blind lawyer by day and crime-fighting hero by night at the center of the 13-episode drama.

Filmmaker Drew Goddard was originally going to serve as showrunner on the series. That is no longer the case after Goddard signed on for Sony’s Spider-Man spinoff Sinister Six. Goddard has been replaced by Steven S. DeKnight (Spartacus). However, Goddard will remain on as an executive producer and serve as a consultant.

Netflix signed a deal with Marvel to stream new series based on Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Cage as well as a miniseries titled The Defenders.

It may not be Michael C. Hall, but I’m still excited.
