It wasn't so long ago that Netflix announced that they were intending to do four series based on various Marvel characters and now it seems that when it comes to Daredevil, we know who will be playing the lead role.
Charlie Cox, best known for his roles in both Stardust and Boardwalk Empire will be taking on the role of blind lawyer Matt Murdock and his more heroic alter ego, Daredevil. Having seen Cox previous work, I have to admit that I think he's a great choice for the role and while Daredevil isn't necessarily one of my favourite heroes, I am excited to see what he will bring to the series when it finally does air. Another reason to be excited however is the person who will be show running the series.
At first it was going to be Drew Goddard (Buffy The Vampire, Angel and Lost) but as he's now left the project, it will be Steven DeKnight (also Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel and also Spartacus) who will be taking over the running of the show, which will run for a first season of 13 episodes like most Netflix shows tend to do. However while Goddard has stepped down as executive producer, he will still have a consulting role on the series, which is due to begin filming during the summer.
