Fresh off the wire, Marvel Studios has confirmed the lead of their first of five television series produced to air on the streaming service Netflix.
Charlie Cox of Boardwalk Empire fame will star as Matt Murdock, better known as the Man Without Fear, Daredevil in the Daredevil series, due to premiere in 2015.
Set to run 13 episodes, Daredevil was another Marvel Studios project that encountered personnel issues over the weekend, but by announcing cast members, one can assume that business is back to usual.
Daredevil will be the first of four series – including Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist – which will culminate in an event called The Defenders. All five series will air exclusively on Netflix.
