Daredevil might’ve just lost Drew Goddard, but they’ve gained an actor to fill the tights and protect Hell’s Kitchen. Charlie Cox from Boardwalk Empire and Neil Gaiman’s Stardust will play the blind hero/lawyer. From Time:
Former Boardwalk Empire actor Charlie Cox will play Matt Murdock — better known as the blind superhero Daredevil from Marvel — in the upcoming 13-episode Netflix drama, according to The Hollywood Reporter…
Daredevil is one of four solo Marvel superhero properties the streaming service will serialize. Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage will then team up and join him for the Netflix miniseries The Defenders, Variety reports.
If you based any casting news on looks alone, I think you’re seeking disappointment. Look at Chris Pratt for Guardians of The Galaxy. The guy transformed for the role. I am just happy that we might get a proper Daredevil production to allow a little whitewashing of the Ben Affleck version.
