Rumor: Charlie Cox Might Be Marvel's 'Daredevil' (updated)

– by L-R

I am hearing that Charlie Cox, the English actor best known for his starring role as Tristan Thorne in Stardust and more recently for his supporting role in the second and third seasons of HBO's Boardwalk Empire, is looking like he is going to be Marvel's Daredevil!

Now this is unconfirmed at the moment, hence the rumor status, but I trust the sources enough to publish.

Stay tuned as more develops as I will update the story...


Marvel and Netflix make it official. Charlie Cox will play Matt Murdock, the blind lawyer by day and crime-fighting hero by night in the 13-episode action drama. Variety & Hollywood Reporter are confirming. Daredevil is one of four Marvel properties set to get their own serialized series on Netflix along with Jessica Jones, Iron Fist & Luke Cage. The four heroes will then band together in a Netflix miniseries event titled The Defenders. The Daredevil order is for 13 episodes. Over the holiday weekend we broke that Drew Goddard has left & then THR broke that Steven S. DeKnight will step in as showrunner and exec produce.
