Charlie Cox is Daredevil

The 'Boardwalk Empire' actor is heading to Marvel's first Netflix show.

Marvel has found its Man Without Fear! Tonight, the company announced via its website that Boardwalk Empire and Stardust actor Charlie Cox has been cast as Daredevil in the upcoming Netflix series. The show will have 13 episodes and is expected to come out sometime in 2015. That's plenty of time to get a Netflix subscription, yes?

It's worth adding that Marvel also recently announced Steven S. DeKnight will be the showrunner. So, what do you think of the casting news, Viners? Can you see Cox flipping around the rooftops of Hell's Kitchen or were you rooting for someone else to land the role? Let us know below!

Typical Marvel casting of unknown known actors. I liked him well enough in Stardust but I really don't give a whoot about actors.

I have confidence in the guy that he'll do a great job, but I still want to see the suit though

He was awesome in Boardwalk Empire, curious as to if he'll be right for the role or not. I don't doubt his acting skills though so I've got faith he'll do his best. Anyone have a video or snippet of him doing an American accent?

Posted by jwalser3

I can't picture him fighting...

I'm down.

This.

Oh, wait...I mean...

I've never heard of him. But as long as he shaves and dyes his hair red I'm sure he'll do fine.

Posted by Spideysense44

Posted by M3th

HMMMMMMMMMM.

I don't much about him

but it's too early to judge anyhow.

So I'll give him a chance.

On topic: Don't know who he is, not that I'm surprised given I didn't know who anyone else was in any other superhero TV show when they were first cast.

Posted by javancain16

Um whooooo?

Edited by Godzilla_BK

Whatever. I'll give him a chance but he doesn't come off as a Matt Murdock to me. I hate to be so negative but I can't help to feel a little disappointed

To my shame I haven't watched this series enough, from what I've seen here this guy should be Bullseye.

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

@comicstooge: There is a fair difference between that and what DD does
