We won’t have to wait too long to see more of Deborah Ann Woll after True Blood ends its creepy monster porn run in the coming weeks. She’s headed over to Netflix for a lead role in Marvel’s Daredevil. Woll will play Karen Page, the love interest of Matt Murdock, the blind attorney who fights crime as the man without fear. I guess that makes him really good around women. If I were ever in a one-on-one conversation with Deborah Ann Woll, I’d be so intimidated that I stutter like a SQMY disc player before hiding behind a potted plant.

Woll has a unique connection to the role already. Her real-life boyfriend is losing his vision due to choroideremia and the two publicly campaign to fight the rare genetic disorder, which I guess spares him from having to watch this season of True Blood. (EW)

Marvel And Netflix Cast Their ‘Daredevil’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/marvel-and-netflix-cast-their-daredevil/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/marvel-and-netflix-cast-their-daredevil/#comments Wed, 28 May 2014 16:16:43 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=261834 His name is Charlie Cox, and you might recognize him.

The day after Netflix and Marvel announced that they lost their showrunner in Drew Goddard, they’ve got some good news they want to share. The studios have found their Daredevil for the Netflix exclusive series of the same name.

His name is Charlie Cox, and you might recognize him as Owen, the Irish gangster, from Boardwalk Empire. In keeping with lore, Cox will play Matt Murdock, who moonlights as blind superhero Daredevil, for the initial 13-episode run of the Netflix series of the same name.

Netflix has the rights to three other superhero tales, with Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage being the other Marvel heroes that will join Daredevil in The Defenders miniseries down the road.

But one thing at a time. Let’s focus on the Irish gangster that’s now a blind lawyer.

Marvel Takes Another Hit As Drew Goddard Leaves Netflix Series ‘Daredevil’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/marvel-takes-another-hit-as-drew-goddard-leaves-netflix-series-daredevil/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/marvel-takes-another-hit-as-drew-goddard-leaves-netflix-series-daredevil/#comments Tue, 27 May 2014 16:30:54 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=261814 This and Edgar Wright leaving 'Ant-Man'. If they hadn't made a billion dollars with 'X-Men' this week, I would say it was a tough one.

First Edgar Wright packs up his stuff and leaves Marvel’s Ant-Man, and now Drew Goddard is stepping down from Marvel’s Netflix series Daredevil. Even with the success of X-Men, that’s some pretty rough news for the studio.

However, at least Goddard didn’t leave over the “creative differences” that Edgar Wright cited. Rather, Goddard has chosen to focus on a Spider-Man spinoff Sinister Six. Which, of course is also a Marvel property. So it’s unlikely this came as a surprise to them. He stays in the Marvel machine, but that is probably cold comfort for the producers of Daredevil, who lose a fan favorite such as Goddard to another project.

Goddard, best known for his work with Joss Whedon on Buffy and s, will stay on as a consultant. What that means is unclear, other than he’ll continue to get paid by the series. Nice work, Drew.

Fox Hires ‘Fringe’ Writer For Very Necessary ‘Daredevil’ Do-Over http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/fox-hires-fringe-writer-for-very-necessary-daredevil-do-over/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/fox-hires-fringe-writer-for-very-necessary-daredevil-do-over/#comments Wed, 08 Jun 2011 02:26:49 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=215241 Ben Affleck's less-than-beloved 2003 take on the blind lawyer superhero will not be the last.

Taking a cue from Marvel and Universal’s Hulk redo in 2008, after the disappointing 2003 Ang Lee version, Fox is trying again with Daredevil. Ben Affleck‘s less-than-beloved 2003 take on the blind lawyer superhero will not be the last. I’m sure the studio is feeling the super-power of franchise re-tinkering, after the successful open of X-Men: First Class, and they don’t want those movie rights leaping back to Marvelville.

Fringe” writer Brad Caleb Kane has been tapped to write the new Daredevil movie, based on the sacred-to-nerds “Born Again” run by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli. It’s a quasi-Job story where Kingpin makes life really, really hard for Daredevil once he learns that his secret identity is lawyer Matt Murdock (thanks to a heroin-addicted porn actress, no less).

David Slade is attached to direct, with Peter Chernin and Dylan Clark producing. (Hollywood Reporter)

Fox Yields To Non-Existent Demand For ‘Daredevil’ Reboot http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/fox-yields-to-non-existent-demand-for-daredevil-reboot/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/fox-yields-to-non-existent-demand-for-daredevil-reboot/#comments Tue, 15 Mar 2011 22:46:12 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=201807 America's least-dear superhero, Daredevil, is getting the reboot treatment, with David Slade directing.

America’s least-dear superhero, Daredevil, is getting the reboot treatment. This is getting ridiculous. Why would Fox reboot a mediocre-at-best film that’s only eight years old? Well, according to Coming Soon, if they don’t make another Daredevil film within a year, the rights revert back to Marvel. So at least they’re doing it for all the right reasons. Legal interests rights always spur the greatest cinematic achievements.

Director David Slade got his card pulled to direct the film, so expect to see something in the vain of his previous projects, ranging from Hard Candy to 30 Days of Night to Twilight: Eclipse. So Daredevil will either be Ellen Page or a vampire. Maybe both. (Coming Soon)
