Charlie Cox is the Man Without Fear for Marvel’s ‘Daredevil’


Earlier today, we posted a rumor that Boardwalk Empire’s Charlie Cox is Marvel’s choice to play Matt Murdock/Daredevil in their planned Netflix series. Now, we have confirmation (via The Hollywood Reporter) that Cox is indeed Marvel’s choice to play Matt Murdock in ‘Daredevil’.

Cox is the first person cast in the 13-episode Netflix drama that has been in the news as of late. Previously, Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods) was hired as writer and showrunner on the series. However, after signing on as writer and director on Sony’s Sinister Six filmGoddard was replaced over Memorial day weekend by Spartacus showrunner Steven S. DeKnight. Goddard will remain on as an exec producer and serve as a consultant on the drama.

Expect more casting decisions to be announced very soon.

Take a look at Cox’s performance in Boardwalk Empire below (NSFW language).

Marvel’s ‘Daredevil’ is set to be released exclusively on Netflix in 2015.
