We all know movies based on comic books are HOT! They appeal to men/women, old/young and they bring in big bucks at the box office. Well Netflix will be getting in on the action with their own original series based on Marvel’s Daredevil. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the comic (or didn’t see the early 2000’s movie with Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner) Daredevil is the story of Matt Murdock a lawyer by day, crime fighter by night. The twist to this archetypal superhero storyline is that Murdock is completely blind and uses his heightened senses to fight crime. The show is scheduled to be released on Netflix in 2015.
The show is still being cast but these roles have been announced:
Matt Murdock/Daredevil – Charlie Cox, an English Actor not well known in the states yet.
Wilson Frisk – Vincent D’Onofrio, from Law & Order
Karen Page – Deborah Ann Woll, from True Blood
