‘Daredevil’ is the first Netflix/Marvel collaboration, leading off a pack that also includes ‘Luke Cage’, ‘Iron Fist’ and ‘Jessica Jones’ before leading into a miniseries starring ‘The Defenders’. Despite rumors of Zac Efron being offered a Marvel role, it’s clearly not that of Daredevil/Matt Murdoch, as that role has been granted to ‘Boardwalk Empire’ alum Charlie Cox (there’s still Iron Fist, buddy!). ‘Daredevil’ is slated for a 13-episode first season on the streaming site Netflix as are the subsequent Marvel shows, which will all lead up to ‘The Defenders’ which, fingers crossed, will be the TV version of ‘The Avengers’.
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.
What do you think? Will Cox make a good Matt Murdoch?
