Netflix’s Daredevil TV Show Has Located Hell’s Kitchen’s Blind Superhero

Charlie Cox in Stardust (2007) Movie Image

Charlie Cox is practicing his blind lawyerin’ skills.

…and his name is Charlie Cox.

Who? Good question.

Cox, who has been officially confirmed by Marvel, is a British actor who is probably best known from the 2007 fantasy “Stardust.” That is, if you saw the movie. As I recall, not a whole lot of people did.

Netflix’s “Daredevil” recently went through some showrunner reshuffling, with “Spartacus'” Steven S. DeKnight taking over for Drew Goddard, who has gone on to spin his web with Sony’s “Sinister Six” movie.

The 13-episode drama will find Cox playing the titular Marvel superhero, aka blind lawyer Matt Murdock, who got his super heightened senses by way of your average comic book origins story — he was bathed in radiation and such.

Don’t try that at home, kids!

    Not a bad choice at all. And I love Stardust. to me it was a new gen Princess Bride. Same tone and feel, but it’s own story, and one of the coolest looking swordfights ever.

  • Aegon the Conqueror

    I don’t know how I feel about this…but I’ll give it a try.

  • Juggernaut

    He’d be a better fit for Foggy Nelson on looks alone but I’ll save my judgment until I see how he does.

      I try not to get caught up in people looking too much like their comic counterparts. Sometimes they are spot on, sometimes the actor makes the role whether they look the part or not (Liev Shcreiber as Victor Creed, Heath Ledger as the joker)
