Marvel-Netflix Casts MATT MURDOCK / DAREDEVIL
Charlie Cox in 'Hello Carter"
Hours after the rumor mill started churning, Marvel Studios officially confirmed Boardwalk Empire actor Charlie Cox has been cast as Matt Murdock/Daredevil in the initial 2015 Marvel-Netflix 13 episode TV series Daredevil.
“Blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt Murdock fights against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell's Kitchen, New York City,” reads the series’ official description.
Just this weekend Marvel also announced Steven S. DeKnight (Spartacus, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) will join the series as showrunner and executive producer following the departure of showrunner Drew Goddard, who will remain on as executive producer and wrote the first two episodes.
