Marvel has just confirmed that the titular star of their new Daredevil Netflix exclusive series will be played by Charlie Cox. Cox is recognizable for his role as IRA agent Owen Sleater in Boardwalk Empire and waifish fop Tristan Thorne in Stardust. He’s also shown up in Downton Abbey and Dracula Untold. One of those is worth bragging about.
Cox will be playing blind lawyer Matt Murdock’s fearless, eskrima stick wielding alter ego, Daredevil in the Netflix exclusive that has just been abandoned by its director, Drew Goddard. Thankfully Buffy, Angel, Dollhouse and Spartacus alum Steven S. DeKnight has stepped in to take his place. So we should still see Cox miraculously wail on some baddies at some stage in 2015.
