Netflix has big plans for Marvel properties with all sorts of series in the works. The first to arrive will be Daredevil, with Broadwalk Empire and Stardust actor Charlie Cox in the lead role. Now the first pics from the show have arrived, with an in-costume short (which looks a little Zorro) above and Cox being a bit beaten up below.
The show is inspired by Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.’s seminal Daredevil: Man Without Fear, and follows attorney Matt Murdock, who was blinded by a tragic accident when he was a kid, but is now imbued with extraordinary senses that don’t just compensate but allow him to fight crime. By day he takes on the bad guys in court and by night he turns masked vigilante.
Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), and Vincent D’Onofrio (Wilson Fisk), Ayelet Zurer (Vanessa Marianna), Vondie Curtis-Hall (Ben Urich), Bob Gunton (Leland Owlsley), Toby Leonard Moore (Wesley) and Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple) will also star.
It’ll be available on Netflix sometime in 2015.
