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.
