Marvel’s Daredevil Series Taps Charlie Cox as Lead [Updated with Confirmation of Cox's Casting and Modern-Day Setting]

27 May 2014 4:37 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fans of HBO's Boardwalk Empire should recognize Marvel/Netflix's recently tapped Daredevil lead, Charlie Cox.  This news comes just a few days after it was reported that Drew Goddard has exited the project (though he'll stay on as a consultant), with Spartacus' Steven S. DeKnight  taking over showrunner duties.  While the drama behind the scenes continues to unfold over at Marvel, Cox is set to step in front of the camera as Matt Murdock, a blind lawyer/crimefighter in "modern day Hell's Kitchen."  The series, one of four, is set to run for 13 episodes next year.  Hit the jump for more [including our updated confirmation from Marvel]. Latino Review reports that Cox will lead the Marvel/Netflix series, Daredevil, making him the first actor cast in a role for any of their new shows.  That makes sense, since Daredevil will be the first of the four series out of the gates, with Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, »

Daredevil to shoot in New York City in July

26 March 2014 8:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel Studios is set to continue its TV expansion this year by kicking off production on Netflix's miniseries for The Defenders, and speaking to Hitfix at Paleyfest, Marvel's head of television Jeph Loeb has confirmed that cameras will start rolling on Daredevil in New York City this July.

"Jessica Jones comes after that," said Loeb. "And then after that, Iron Fist and then after that Luke Cage, and then that'll culminate in The Defenders."

The pilot for Daredevil is being written and directed by Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods), who will also serve as showrunner, while Melissa Rosenberg (Twilight) is set to oversee Jessica Jones.

So, we should probably expect to hear who'll be succeeding Ben Affleck as Matt Murdock in the coming months. Who would you like to see donning the horns? Let us know in the comments below »

Daredevil TV Series Begins Filming In July

25 March 2014 1:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After the disappointment that many of us felt with Marvel’s first TV effort, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the superhero powerhouse has a lot to prove with their next batch of shows, which will be coming to Netflix in 2015. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage will be making their Marvel Cinematic Universe debuts with their own solo outings, which will then culminate in a team-up called The Defenders. 

Daredevil is undoubtedly the most well known character in this group, and will therefore be coming to the small screen first. In an interview with HitFix, Marvel Studios head of TV Jeph Loeb confirmed that the show will begin filming in July in New York City. It will be followed by Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and finally, Luke Cage. 

Daredevil will be coming to us courtesy of The Cabin In The Woods director Drew Goddard, who will also write and direct the pilot. »
