(Split from the Netflix/Marvel thread below)

Charlie Cox Cast as Marvel’s Daredevil!






UPDATE: The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed the news! Cox is officially set to play Matt Murdock on the upcoming Netflix series.
Latino-Review is reporting that Stardust and "Boardwalk Empire" star Charlie Cox could be the man without fear in Marvel Entertainment's upcoming Netflix series "Daredevil." The site reports this is just a rumor for the time being, but check back here for updates on casting for the series very soon.
It was revealed this weekend that The Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard had stepped away from the series in order to focus on Sony's "The Amazing Spider-Man" spin-off The Sinister Six with "Spartacus" creator Steven S. DeKnight stepping in to take his place as executive producer and showrunner on the series.
"Daredevil" is just one of four new shows that will debut on Netflix from Marvel Entertainment which also include "Iron Fist," "Luke Cage," "Jessica Jones," and a mini-series event of "The Defenders" that brings them all together. Production is scheduled to begin on the series this summer with a target release in 2015.

Marvel’s ‘Daredevil’ Is Set In Modern Day




With Charlie Cox now cast as Marvel’s Daredevil, things about the show are coming into focus. Steven S. DeKnight (Spartacus) is the new showrunner. With his Matt Murdock in place, the revelation was made that the show – which will be comprised of 13-episodes airing on Netflix in 2015 – will be set in “modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.” That ends all speculation this would be a period show, and also puts it in direct contact with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Read more about the Daredevil time period below.
After the trade confirmation of Cox being cast, Marvel.com posted their own statement with this crucial piece of info:
Marvel is proud to announce that acclaimed actor Charlie Cox has joined “Marvel’s Daredevil,” an all-new 13-episode series premiering on Netflix in 2015. Best known for his acclaimed work in “Boardwalk Empire” and “Stardust,” Cox will play Matt Murdock, the lead role in this all-new Marvel Television series. Blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt Murdock fights against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.
Marvel’s first original series on Netflix is Executive Produced by series Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (“Spartacus,” “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer,” “Angel”) and Drew Goddard (“Cabin in the Woods,” “Lost,” “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer,” in addition to writing the first two episodes of “Marvel’s Daredevil), along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Smallville,” “Heroes”).
“Marvel’s Daredevil” is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios.
Again, much speculation had been made about all the Marvel Netflix shows potentially being set in the Sixties or Seventies, because that time period is when Daredevil, Iron Fist and Luke Cage were all introduced. (Jessica Jones came around much later). Plus, a period feel would distinguish these shows from the rest of the Marvel Cinematic, and television, universes which now includes Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter. (Agent Carter will be a period-set story, however.)
If Daredevil is set in the modern day, all of the other shows pretty much have to be set there too. The four Netflix shows are building to The Defenders, and unless there’s some time travel, they’d need to be happening simultaneously for that to work. Plus, as we know from the Marvel Studios movies, modern day New York City is a post-Avengers world. The “Battle of New York” literally changed the world and maybe The Defenders were either created by this need for superheroes to defend humanity, or as a result of it.

Vincent D'Onofrio Is KINGPIN On Marvel's DAREDEVIL Netflix
Check it out.
Marvel and Netflix are proud to announce that acclaimed actor Vincent D’Onofrio has joined “Marvel’s Daredevil,” an all-new 13-episode series premiering on Netflix in 2015. Best known for his critically-lauded work in “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” “Men in Black, “Full Metal Jacket” and “Homicide,” D’Onofrio will play Wilson Fisk, a powerful businessman whose interests in the future of Hell’s Kitchen will bring him into conflict with the blind attorney Matt Murdock and his alter ego Daredevil.
D’Onofrio joins Charlie Cox, previously announced as Matt Murdock, in the exciting cast of “Marvel’s Daredevil.”
“We’re incredibly proud to have an actor with the gravitas and versatility of Vincent joining 'Marvel’s Daredevil'in such an integral role,” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television. “Wilson Fisk is an iconic villain whose cunning and power make him the dangerous equal of our hero."
“Marvel’s Daredevil” follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell's Kitchen, New York City.
Marvel’s first original series on Netflix is Executive Produced by series Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (“Spartacus”, “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer”, “Angel”) and Drew Goddard ("Cabin in the Woods," "Lost," "Buffy The Vampire Slayer," in addition to writing the first two episodes of “Marvel’s Daredevil”), along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Smallville,” “Heroes”).

Rosario Dawson Joins Marvel’s Daredevil!






Marvel and Netflix announced today that Sin City and Kids star Rosario Dawson is set to join the cast of "Marvel's Daredevil," the new 13-episode series coming to Netflix in 2015.
Dawson will, according to the press release, play "a dedicated young woman whose quest to heal the wounds of Hell’s Kitchen brings Matt Murdock unexpectedly crashing into her life, while her own journey forever alters the course of his battle against the injustices of this broken city." She joins Charlie Cox (previously announced as Matt Murdock) and Vincent D’Onofrio (previously announced as Wilson Fisk).
Although its purely speculative at this point, that character description does fit the Marvel Comics character "Night Nurse," who was reintroduced to the Marvel Universe during Brian Michael Bendis' run on "Daredevil" in 2004. The character also played a major part in Brian K. Vaughan's "Doctor Strange" miniseries in 2006.
“Rosario Dawson is one the most charismatic, talented and powerful actresses in Hollywood, so she was always at the top of our list for 'Marvel’s Daredevil,'” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television. “Her role in the series is absolutely critical to Matt Murdock’s journey to become the hero we know as Daredevil.”
"Marvel’s Daredevil" follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell's Kitchen, New York City.
Marvel’s first original series on Netflix is executive produced by series showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (“Spartacus”, “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer”) and Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods, "Buffy The Vampire Slayer"), who is writing the first two episodes of the series along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Smallville”).

LUTHER Director Farren Blackburn Confirms That He Will Helm DAREDEVIL Episode

Farren Blackburn has helmed a number of TV episodes for the BBC, including well-known shows like Doctor Who, Luther and The Fades. Well, the director has now taken to Twitter to reveal that his next project will be an episode of Daredevil for Marvel and Netflix.

With Drew Goddard busy with the movie pretty much nobody wants to see (that's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 spin-off Sinister Six in case you missed the news), Marvel hired Steven S. DeKnight as Daredevil's new showrunner and are obviously on the hunt for anyway for directors to tackle various instalments of the 13-episode Netflix series. While we don't know which episode it will be, British director Farren Blackburn has confirmed that he will be working on at least one episode of the drama which stars Charlie Cox, Vincent D'Onofrio and Rosario Dawson.

For those of you wondering, Blackburn directed the Doctor Who episodes, "The Rings of Akhaten" and "The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe". His Luther contribution were the very impressive final two episodes of season three, and that his work on the Idris Elba led drama alone should serve as proof that he will have no problems adapting to the gritty world of Matt Murdock's Hell's Kitchen.

Enjoying The Interceptor edit but so excited to reveal I will be directing an episode of Daredevil next for Marvel in New York!!

DAREDEVIL Netflix Show To Be Standalone Before Linking With Marvel Cinematic Universe


Producer Kevin Feige commented on the the upcoming Daredevil Netflix show that is currently in production. He revealed that whilst the show exists within the MCU, crossovers are not a priority right now. Hit the jump for more!




"They’re being very, very smart about that. And approaching those shows the way we approach movies, which is focus on what you’re working on first," says the Marvel Studios President, " And make it as great as you can be at beginning, middle and end. And then look at if they’re places it makes sense for some interweaving of continuity." Before fans start panicking, it was confirmed by Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada that the Marvel Netflix shows will exist within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.So it's not totally out of question that these street level superheroes will eventually pop up in the films or other tv shows -- but when that'll happen remains to be seen. Feige then concluded, "But right now their goal, and they’re in production on the Daredevil series, is to make the best incarnation of Daredevil that has ever existed." How do you guys feel about this?

I like what they are doing minus the Vincent D'Onofrio casting, he is my least favorite actor next to Fishburn.

TRUE BLOOD's Deborah Ann Woll To Play 'Karen Page' In Netflix's DAREDEVIL


The Man Without Fear's one true love is finally going to be properly brought to life in live-action as True Blood's Deborah Ann Woll has signed up to play Karen Page in Marvel and Netflix's upcoming series. Could this mean that Rosario Dawson really is Elektra? Check it out!




According to The Hollywood Reporter, Deborah Ann Woll will play Karen Page in Daredevil. In the comics, she was the secretary at the law firm of Nelson & Murdock and Matt and Foggy would often battle for her affections...despite the fact that she only really had eyes for Daredevil! Ellen Pompeo (Grey's Anatomy) made a brief and forgettable appearance as Karen in the 2003 movie, but Woll will have a leading role in this series in what the site's sources describe as, "the first time the Karen character will be brought to life in a meaningful way." The True Blood star joins Charlie Cox as The Man Without Fear, Elden Hensonas Franklin "Foggy" Nelson, Vincent D'Onofrio as The Kingpin, and Rosario Dawson in a mysterious role which is more than likely Elektra.

SDCC 2014: Daredevil Netflix Show Comes Out In May




Even the very last Marvel panel of Comic-Con International 2014 had some news left to trot out.


The panel in question (live blogged on Marvel.com) was devoted to the 75th anniversary of Marvel comics and the 50th anniversary of Daredevil. The talk eventually turned toward the Daredevil TV series that will lead off Marvel’s partnership with Netflix, and it was revealed that the show will start airing in May 2015.
Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada was on the panel along with writers Mark Waid and Dan Slott, and he said working on Daredevil reminded him of the early days of Marvel Knights. That was the initiative that saw Quesada and Jimmy Palmiotti assume control over Marvel’s (mostly) street level heroes in an effort to revitalize flagging sales, and in the process, Quesada ended up on art duties for a Daredevil arc written by director Kevin Smith.
Quesada spoke briefly about how the series was shooting on location in New York City, but declined to answer a question about how Matt Murdock would interact with Iron Fist, who will also star in his own Netflix series. He did say that it would be exciting seeing the characters unite in the Defenders mini-series that will bring Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage together after their individual shows are complete.
Now that its release date is firmed up, Marvel fans can look forward to seeing Daredevil, starring Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson and Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, next May.

Marvel's Jeph Loeb Confirms Deborah Ann Woll As 'Karen Page' In DAREDEVIL Netflix Series


It's been known for quite some time now, but Marvel's head of TV has made it official that True Blood actress Deborah Ann Woll is joining the Daredevil series. Check out what he says after the jump


Best known for her resonant work in "True Blood," Deborah Ann Woll will play Karen Page, an enigmatic young woman whose quest for justice sends her crashing into the life of Matt Murdock, irrevocably changing his war for a better tomorrow against the forces of evil in Hell's Kitchen. Woll joins Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), with Rosario Dawson and Vincent D'Onofrio (Wilson Fisk) in the critically-lauded cast of "Marvel's Daredevil."

"Deborah Ann Woll is fiery, self-assured and inspires those around her--all words that perfectly describe Karen Page," said Jeph Loeb, Marvel's Head of Television. "It's through Deborah Ann's nuanced portrayal that we see just why Karen is not only important to Matt Murdock, but is a central figure in the war for the soul of Hell's Kitchen." "Marvel's Daredevil" follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell's Kitchen, New York City.

First Look At Charlie Cox As 'Matt Murdock' In DAREDEVIL Set Pic


Although we've previously seen a snap of Cox taken around the set of the currently shooting Netflix tv series, Instagram user craigengler has managed to get a pic of the actor in costume as The Man Without fear's alter ego, Matt Murdock. Take a look after the jump.






Well, he looks...like a lawyer in sunglasses! Obviously this isn't anything terribly exciting, but it's nice to get an idea of how Charlie Cox will appear as Matt Murdock in Marvel's Netflix series, which began shooting today in Brooklyn under the name "Bluff". Now, a pic of him AS Daredevil if you please intrepid set snappers! Thanks to Marvel Spider for the heads up.

DAREDEVIL: More Pics Of Charlie Cox On Set As 'Matt Murdock'

We saw one blurry image of the Boardwalk Empire actor earlier on but now Just Jared have provided some more, giving us a much better look at Cox as Daredevil's civilian alter ego, cane and all. Oh, and he does appear to have red(ish) hair.














So still no costume, but I'd say Marvel will actually release an official image of that themselves before there's any chance of it being snapped on set. What do you think of Charlie boy as Matty Murdock? They seem to have gone with the auburn hair similar to what Ben Affleck sported on his noggin in Fox's Daredevil movie. We'll keep you updated if any more pics make their way online. The show will debut on Netflix in 2015, and also stars Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Vincent D’Onofrio as Kingpin/Wilson Fisk, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, and Rosario Dawson in an unknown role. Additional pics via daily Mail UK.

Is Phil Abraham Directing Netflix's DAREDEVIL Pilot?

The acclaimed director known for his work on the likes of Mad Men and The Sopranos is listed on IMDB as the man who'll helm the pilot episode of Marvel's Daredevil tv series. Of course that doesn't mean it's official..




The IMDB page for Marvel's Netflix Daredevil show lists Phil Abraham as director of the pilot episode, as does the page for Abraham himself. Now obviously just because something is listed on the Internet Movie Database, that doesn't make it so..but we've put our sonar senses to work to see if we can confirm it. If Abraham is indeed helming the pilot, it's very good news, as he is a very well regarded and experienced director, who's worked on the likes of Mad Men, Sopranos, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, The Killing, Ray Donovan and Orange Is The New Black. We'll update if and when more info becomes available. Daredevil is set to air next May, and stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, and Rosario Dawson as "Claire T."

Exclusive: ‘Daredevil’ Star Vincent D’Onofrio Talks Kingpin, Marvel Fans and ‘Defenders’ Crossover

by Nick Romano
[COLOR=#FFFFFF !important]
[COLOR=#FFFFFF !important][/COLOR]

[/COLOR]
ScreenCrushNo, you shouldn’t adjust your computer screen. The above photo is of Vincent D’Onofrio, who shaved his head for his role as Wilson Fisk (aka Kingpin) in Marvel’s upcoming ‘Daredevil‘ series, to stream on Netflix in 2015. As he told ScreenCrush earlier today, tonight he’s filming a big scene in Brooklyn where “it’s the first time you see my character do something physical.” Given how intimidating the ‘Law & Order: Criminal Intent’ vet looks in person with this new look — mind you, he’s also 6’4” — we can’t wait to see how his character comes to life on-screen.
Marvel is currently hard at work filming the first of its four upcoming Netflix series (and that’s not including the miniseries team-up of ‘The Defenders’) in New York, but in between shoots, D’Onofrio stopped by the ScreenCrush and Loudwire offices to talk about one of his other passion projects, an indie film titled ‘Mall’ that’s directed by Linkin Park member Joe Hahn. D’Onofrio produced and co-wrote the script for the film, which spotlights a group of characters during a tragic mall shooting.
The film is scheduled for a limited release starting October 17 — be sure to stay tuned for more interviews with D’Onofrio and Hahn before then — but we had to ask the Kingpin himself about transforming into the iconic Marvel villain, his hopes for creating the quintessential portrayal of this character, the series’ crossover potential, and more.
Now you’re branching off into two major franchises, one of them – we talked about it a little bit – is ‘Daredevil.’ How has this transition for you been, especially with ‘Daredevil,’ which has such a diehard fanbase, and sometimes even fundamentally so?
Yeah, it’s huge. It’s huge. I mean the whole Marvel world is so huge. But I gotta tell you, I couldn’t be working for nicer people. I really am. I’m just having a great time. The whole — the way that we’re shooting it, our Daredevil, everybody that’s in the show, is just going so well. Tonight we have a big fight scene that’s happening. It’s the first time you see my character do something physical.
Everybody I talk to who has been involved in a Marvel project describes [the experience] almost as their childhood fantasy come to life.
Yeah. I mean, it’s kinda cool. The thing about Marvel is that they’re not – they’re into real acting. They’re looking for artists that are willing to take chances and are willing to create characters, even if that character has been around for years and years in comic books, they still are depending on us to create something and take it somewhere else.
Robert Downey [Jr.] is the perfect example of that. Who knew that Iron Man was going to be who Robert made him?
That’s true.
And Jon Favreau. I would have never guessed Iron Man was going to be that kind of Tony Stark. Not in a million years, and, you know, that’s because of Jon and especially Robert. So, everybody is following suit with that. Personally, I felt Downey kind of led the way in that, and he’s kind of said to the studios and to the public, “It can work. These Marvel things can work.”
Did he give you any advice?
…Actually, we have discussed Marvel, but just in the kind of “great that we’re both doing characters that are in the same world.”
Does that potential for crossover — whether it’s branching out into other TV shows or branching out into Marvel movies — does that entice you about this?
Well, I think they have some kind of plan. I’m not really allowed to discuss what the plan is, but they have a plan. I think the beginning of the plan is series stuff with Netflix, and then they have a bigger plan to branch out, but I wouldn’t be able to tell you specifically what that is.
That’s fair. With such an iconic villain, though, as the Kingpin, there are a lot of fans out there with their ideas of what this man is. For you, what is that character and what do you want to bring, or what are you most excited to bring out in this character?
[Brief silence] I’m not gonna tell you.
I think – it’s not just me, by the way, it’s the writer. It’s Stephen DeKnight, it’s Jeph Loeb at Marvel, it’s the scripts, and it’s me. I think it’s gonna be the … I hope — I should say – I hope it’s gonna be the new way to look at Wilson Fisk. I think that there will be no other Wilson Fisk but this one after we’re all done with it. That’s what we’re hoping for.
Just from the people I’ve spoken to, they’ve been so ecstatic over your casting in this role.
It seems to be working really well, yeah.
Does fan reaction, or fan interaction or projections, get to your head at all?
No, I love it. It’s like when you’re doing a play and you feel the audience before you walk out for your first cue, you know? That feeling is quite something. When you do a play, you do so many performances. You show up in the dressing room after your 100th performance and you’re like, “I don’t wanna do this play anymore. I just don’t wanna play it anymore.” And you’re about to break into tears because you just don’t wanna do this fucking play anymore, you know? And in dressing rooms in theaters, you have these little speaker boxes, and you can hear the audience coming in. Once the audience starts coming in, hearing them, you suddenly go from hating the play to wanting to go out again, just by hearing the audience. And so it’s the same kind of thing. I can hear the audience with these fans of ‘Daredevil’ and these fans of Marvel, and it just makes you enthusiastic.
I don’t know how into detail you’re allowed to get, so definitely stop me if I’m going too far, but all these Marvel worlds, especially ‘Daredevil,’ have a wealth of characters and villains and all these crazy people who can cross-pollinate…
Yeah, The Defenders.
Obviously the Kingpin is going to be a main focal point from the villainy side of things. Are there any other characters you can tease or point out from the comics?
No, not specifically. I can’t talk about anything. I can just say that they’re gonna go all the way. They’re gonna go super cool — like, super, super cool.
Check back later for more information from D’Onofrio on ‘Mall’ and his involvement in the upcoming ‘Jurassic World.’

DAREDEVIL: Vincent D’Onofrio Finds Inspiration In Frank Miller's Kingpin


Vincent D’Onofrio starred in Men In Black and Full Metal Jacket, and his next venture is Marvel's upcoming Netflix television series, Daredevil. In a recent chat with Mens Journal he discusses where he finds his inspiration for The Kingpin (Wilson Fisk).




Marvel's Daredevil
television series, which will appear on Netflix, is currently filming in New York. It will be the first of many shows that Marvel and Netflix are teaming up. Anticipation is high. One of the most intriguing bits is Vincent D’Onofrio's return to the small screen. Many fans recognize the veteran actor from his numerous film roles, but he also made his mark on television as one of the two leads in Law & Order: Criminal Intent. In Daredevil, D'Onofrio will be playing Wilson Fisk, aka The Kingpin. His character is described as "a powerful businessman whose interests in the future of Hell’s Kitchen will bring him into conflict with the blind attorney Matt Murdock and his alter ego Daredevil."
Now that I have you in a good mood, let’s talk about Daredevil.
Filming has been great. I can’t really talk about specifics. Really. But I can tell you it’s all working. It’s all gritty. Everything is really impressive. They seem to know what they’re doing over at Marvel. I think ever since Downey and [Jon] Favreau did Iron Man and proved that comic book movies could be really cool they’ve just embraced that and taken it to the next level. They keep knocking it out of the park. This Netflix series that we’re filming right now, it’s going to be so amazing to watch. We’re doing these incredible, iconic scenes every single day. I have the best character; I play one of the best characters I’ve read in a long time. I haven’t had this much fun with a role for many years. How much did you know about the character before signing on?
I knew a bit about Wilson Fisk. I had seen the movies. I saw other interpretations. But for this, they really wanted everything to be fresh. They’re operating like they have been doing their movies. I’m finding most of my inspiration for Fisk coming from the old artwork, artists like Frank Miller.

Your new friend Downey must have been very excited you got the role.
He was thrilled. My wife actually texted him a photo of me dressed as Kingpin and we got a very, very excited text back.
I look forward to the Iron Man versus Kingpin crossover happening very soon.
[Laughs.] It’s not impossible! They have all kind of plans. I think this Daredevil show is going to be the start of some very exciting crossovers.

Marvel’s Daredevil Showrunner Stephen S. DeKnight Describes a ‘Grounded, Gritty’ Series







We learned yesterday that Marvel Studios’ first Netflix series, “Daredevil,” is set to reveal some details at next month’s New York Comic Con, but that isn’t going to stop showrunner Stephen S. DeKnight from sharing a few early details! Speaking with Paste Magazine, DeKnight drops some hints about what fans can expect from his take on the man without fear.
“With this version of Daredevil,” he explains, “we wanted it to be grounded, gritty, as realistic as we could portray. That naturally fits in with the Daredevil character. Matt Murdock, on a regular basis, would get the shit beat out of him. That’s one thing that makes him a great character. He’s not super strong. He’s not invulnerable. In every aspect, he’s a man that’s just pushed himself to the limits, he just has senses that are better than a normal humans. He is human. The other thing that really drew me to this character is that he’s one of the most morally grey of the heroes… He’s a lawyer by day, and he’s taken this oath. But every night he breaks that oath, and goes out and does very violent things.”
DeKnight goes on to hint that, as fans might expect, Frank Miller’s run on the title is serving as a huge inspiration.
“The image that always stuck in my mind was the Frank Miller Elektra run where he’s holding Bullseye over the street,” DeKnight continues, “and he lets Bullseye go because he doesn’t want Bullseye to ever kill anyone again. When I read that originally, when I was young, I’d never seen anything like that in comics. Superman scoops up the villain and puts them in jail. This time the hero didn’t do that. It was a morally grey ground that I found absolutely fascinating. There are two sides to this character. He’s literally one bad day away from becoming the The Punisher!
Marvel’s first original series on Netflix is executive produced by DeKnight and Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods, “Buffy The Vampire Slayer”), who is writing the first two episodes of the series along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Smallville”).
“Marvel’s Daredevil” is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.

Scott Glenn Joins The Cast Of Marvel and Netflix's DAREDEVIL As 'Stick'


In yet another sign that the upcoming Netflix series will be sticking closely to Frank Miller's critically acclaimed comic book run, Marvel have today announced that The Hunt For Red October's Scott Glenn has been cast as Stick, the Man Without Fear's mentor. Read on for details!



Marvel and Netflix are proud to announce that acclaimed actor Scott Glenn has joined "Marvel's Daredevil," an all-new 13-episode series premiering on Netflix in 2015.

Best known for his work in blockbuster films such as "The Bourne Ultimatum," "Silence of The Lambs" and "The Hunt For Red October," Scott Glenn will play Stick, the mysterious martial artist and mentor of Matt Murdock (a.k.a. Daredevil).

Scott Glenn joins Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), with Rosario Dawson and Vincent D'Onofrio (Wilson Fisk) in the critically-lauded cast of "Marvel's Daredevil."

"Stick is one of the most important figures in Matt Murdock's life and Scott Glenn embodies all the qualities of someone so integral to this hero's journey," said Jeph Loeb, Marvel's Head of Television. "There are few actors who could bring such the authenticity, gravitas and charisma to such a key role in Matt's journey to become the super hero we call Daredevil."

"Marvel's Daredevil" follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell's Kitchen, New York City.

Marvel's first original series on Netflix is Executive Produced by series Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight ("Spartacus," "Buffy: The Vampire Slayer," "Angel") and Drew Goddard ("Cabin in the Woods," "Lost," "Buffy The Vampire Slayer," in addition to writing the first two episodes of "Marvel's Daredevil"), along with Marvel TV's Jeph Loeb ("Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," "Smallville," "Heroes").

"Marvel's Daredevil" is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
For those of you unfamiliar with the character, Stick was the leader of the warrior order called The Chaste and he fought against The Hand for a number of years. The blind martial artist would later train both Daredevil and Elektra. Whether we'll see this character in flashbacks or in present day Hell's Kitchen remains to be seen, but this is an exciting addition to the already impressive cast. Frank Miller's classic run definitely seems to be the main inspiration for Netflix and Steven DeKnight's take on Daredevil, and this latest bit of news no doubts add weight to the theory that Rosario Dawson is playing Elektra. Be sure to sound off with your thoughts on this casting below!

Marvel Exec Says, DAREDEVIL Won't Make Mistakes Like Ben Affleck's Movie

Marvel's television executive Jeph Loeb discussed the upcoming Netflix Daredevil television series and reassured fans it would avoid the mistakes that the feature film made.



Mark Steven Johnson wrote and directed the 2003 Daredevil film, which starred Ben Affleck ("Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice") as Matt Murdock/The Man Without Fear and Jennifer Garner ("Elektra") as Elektra Natchios. The theatrical cut has received its fair share of criticism, but the director's cut is considered much better. It is. Currently, a new Daredevil is in the works and this time it will be a Netflix television series. Marvel television executive Jeph Loeb was interviewed by KFI AM 640 and he made it a point to let fans know the show would not make past mistakes like the feature film did.

"When we started talking to our actors and to our directors, this is with all due respect to the film, if you want to know what we're not doing, go watch the movie. If you want to know what we're doing, it's very much steeped in the world of the comics, but it also has a life of its own and that's really what television and our films really do is that we take the best....We hope and we're very confident that this is the beginning of something that's very exciting on Netflix." - Jeph Loeb
Of course when you add another superhero to the New York setting some super-fans will want to know where the Daredevil's of the world were when The Avengers battled Loki and the Chitauri during Joss Whedon's film. Loeb addressed those geeky concern:

"When I watched The Avengers, which is really one of my favorite movies, during the scene when the sky opens up, the Chitauri are coming and there's a giant battle over by Grand Central Station, even in the theater I was thinking, 'In the true Marvel Universe if you go about ten blocks over and an avenue down, there's a place called Hell's Kitchen and in that world are characters like Daredevil and Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, Hero for Hire, and those characters are not going to be involved in an inter-warfare-universe-colliding incident. That's what the Avengers do and they do it really, really well and those movies are incredible. We wanted to have an opportunity to be able to tell stories about our street-level heroes and how that they could possibly interact in the world of Marvel without it feeling like it's completely detached and by the same token feeling like it's part of that world." - Jeph Loeb

NYCC: Marvel Television and Netflix’s Daredevil Panel







Day 3 of New York Comic Con 2014 culminated with the second panel for Marvel Television, the Netflix exclusive series “Daredevil,” which is currently shooting in and around New York City. As you probably know, it’s the first of four planned series for Netflix leading up to a fifth “Defenders” show.
Head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb once again reiterated that New York is considered Marvel’s home and that New York was the only place they could make the show. Everyone at Marvel was excited to bring the cast and show the first footage from the Netflix show at New York Comic Con. This time Loeb was wearing a cool Daredevil T-shirt under his outer shirt and after giving thanks to some of the Marvel creators, he gave a shout-out to the show’s producers and Marvel Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer, Joe Quesada.
Loeb went right into showing the very first clip from the show, setting it up by saying that it takes place in Karen Page’s apartment when an unexpected visitor stops by. He said that it took more than a little inspiration from Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.’s “Daredevil: The Man Without Fear,” the first mention of the influence of that mini-series.
After the Netflix and Marvel logos, we see Karen Page (as played by Deborah Ann Woll from “True Blood”) enter her apartment, which is pitch black. It’s storming rain outside and she’s wet but she walks through the darkened apartment and climbs on a stool to get an item out of a vent – we don’t really see clearly what it is, but it’s obviously something important. She gets down and walks away but there’s someone behind her who hits her a few times against the wall sending her to the floor. As she lays slumped there, the man picks up the unknown item she dropped and puts it in his pocket, then he pulls out a switchblade and approaches her. From behind him, we can see a shadowy figure in the doorway, clearly Matt Murdock in the very early stages of his vigilante crimefighting career, using a bandana to cover the top portion of his face and dressed all in black like a ninja. The two of them start fighting as Karen cowers in the corner, both of them using martial arts but a little grittier and street-level, more violent, rather than the type of beauty that we sometimes see in martial arts movies. After they tussle for a bit, one of them ends up throwing the other through a window and they both fall to the ground below as the scene ends with a close-up of Matt lying in the rain. The scene was naturally fairly dark and shadowy but seemed well-executed in terms of our first look at Daredevil in action.
Loeb then brought out the cast from Daredevil including a few new names that hadn’t been previously announced. Toby Leonard Moore will play Wesley, Wilson Fisk’s right hand man, while Ayelet Zurer is Wilson Fisk’s love Vanessa. Bob Gunton plays Leland Owlsley aka The Owl, up there with the Kingpin as one of Daredevil’s greatest villains, while they went in a different direction by casting veteran Vondie Curtis-Hall as Ben Urich, the Daily Bugle reporter who discovers Daredevil’s identity and becomes his confidante. They all came out as introduced, as did Elden Henson, who plays Matt Murdock’s best friend and law partner Foggy Nelson. They were joined by Woll, Vincent D’Onofrio who was already announced to play The Kingpin, Charlie Cox who plays Matt Murdock and Daredevil and the showrunner Stephen S. DeKnight.
Rosario Dawson wasn’t able to make the panel, because she was working in Los Angeles, but Charlie Cox called her the “heartbeat of the show” and Loeb announced she would be playing Claire Temple, best known in the comics as Night Nurse, who has played a big role in many Daredevil story arcs.
That seemed like a good lead-in for the second clip shown, one between Cox and Dawson that probably takes place soon after the clip we saw earlier. Matt’s lying on a couch, obviously the worse for wear and Dawson’s Night Nurse appears by his side saying, “You’re going to listen me to this time?” When he asks where he is, she tells him he’s in her apartment and that she’s the lucky girl who pulled him out of the garbage. He asks if she’d seen his face, she says she has and that his outfit kind of sucks. “It’s a work in progress,” he responds. She proceeds to tell him the injuries he’s suffering from after the fight include a knife wound, a concussion and three broken ribs. She notes that his eyes aren’t reacting to light which means he’s either blind or in worse shape than she thought. She wants to know how “a blind man in a mask” ends up beaten up in a dumpster. “The less you know about me the better,” he tells her, but he doesn’t want to be taken to a hospital. She says its her night off and doesn’t want some guy to die in her house. He notes that most people who find a bleeding masked man in the garbage would call the police. “The less you know about me the better,” she says when he keeps pushing for her info, but she tells him her name is “Claire” and she decides to call him Mike after a guy she used to date who was “very good at keeping secrets.” He thanks her and the scene ends.
Back to the panel, Loeb and DeKnight gave a shout-out to their crew, some of who were in the audience, before Loeb went to the cast to talk about their characters, starting with the Australian Toby Moore, who described the work in that everyday he “gets to play dress-up and make-believe with Vincent D’Onofrio, which is not a bad gig. Some of the stuff he’s been doing has been insane.” According to DeKnight, Toby was hired “five minutes before shooting” since they had trouble filling that role.

Loeb mentioned that actor Bob Gunton, a character actor who has been in so many great movies, also gets to work with Mr. Fisk as Leland Owlsley, and he was asked about his own experiences. “I definitely jumped into the party five minutes after it had begun, but this is like jumping back into my fevered teenage dreams where light and dark and secrets and broken people try to find their way through life. As a teenager I felt like there was something was broken in me and for all these people, it’s not the external things they’re fighting as much as what’s inside them. My character, one of his armaments is a sardonic wit, which I really responded to when they sent me the script. The writing is so snappy and tight and in the case of Leland, very amusing. I hope to be able to put a little more spin on that ball.”
DeKnight said how he and Jeph had loved Daredevil for years and years, and when they were on “Buffy” together, he had a wall full of Marvel action figures including Daredevil, and they said that one day they would do that show. “And I laughed at him,” Loeb joked. “And we’re going to try to do it right,” DeKnight added. His main influences (as ended up being the case of most of the panel) was Frank Miller’s run and then later on, the Bendis run, both which will be reflected in the show.
Loeb asked Vondie Curtis-Hall how much fun he’s having as Ben Urich, a character who is well-known to Daredevil fans, and the actor said that when he looked at the comics he asked himself, “How am I going to play this guy? I don’t wear glasses.” That was an “inside joke” since in the comics Urich is a nerdy white guy, while Curtis-Hall is neither. “It was Ben’s drive that really drew me to this character. His obsession for the truth and his passion for the city and Hell’s Kitchen and uncovering. He has the same passion Daredevil has of really wanting a better New York and a better Hell’s Kitchen. His passion is trying to find the story and uncovering the truth and the grit.
When Ayelet was asked about about working with Vincent D’Onofrio, she mentioned being told some story about painting which got her interested. “I think she’s a person that if there’s a locked door and somebody says ‘Don’t go in there,’ she would,” she said about Fisk’s great love Vanessa. “Working with Mr. D’Onofrio is fabulous, because he’s a phenomenal actor and he’s very honest in his performance, so it gets you into that place and becomes very realistic for me.”
Instead of explaining the painting she referred to, Loeb showed a third clip of Vanessa first meeting Wilson Fisk for the first time in an art gallery. As she walks in, D’Onofrio, dressed in that famous white suit, is standing with his back to her starting at what appears to be a blank canvas. She walks up to him and stands there studying the painting and then makes a joke about holding up a white piece of paper and asking what it is. “A rabbit in a snowstorm.” He’s not responding at all so she asks him if he’s interested or just looking. He replies with the word, “Interested.” One close-up shows that Fisk’s hand is kind of twitchy, and she keeps pressing him by saying, “All that matters is how it makes you feel,” to which Fisk replies (as the camera pans to show his face), “It makes me feel alone.”
D’Onofrio definitely seems to be playing a younger and leaner Wilson Fisk than what we’ve seen in the comics and the actor said a few things about the character. “He’s a child and he’s a monster,” he began. “Every move that he makes and everything that he does in our story comes from his foundation of morality inside himself,” adding that meeting Vanessa brings him out of the shadows.
“You have a feeling of the origin of Wilson and how he becomes this iconic character that everyone seems to dig,” he continued. “We’re playing it real, we’re playing it emotional and moment to moment and I’m digging it.”
Loeb said that while reading the script and watching the performances, sometimes he’ll be rooting for Matt and other times for Fisk. “I always approach it that there are no heroes or villains, it’s just people making different choices,” DeKnight explained. “What I love about this show is the moral grey area that’s inherent in Daredevil – he’s a lawyer by day and a vigilante by night. Those two things don’t mesh and it’s a constant struggle for Matt Murdock. Often times he crosses the line, and one of the things we ask in this show is, ‘How far will he go?’ He’s one bad day away from becoming Frank Castle.” (Referring to Marvel’s popular vigilante killer, The Punisher, which got a knowing laugh.) “With Wilson Fisk on the flip side, when you hear the explanation of what he’s doing and why he’s doing it, I think you’re going to say, ‘You know what? That’s not a bad idea, that’s pretty good.’ So there will be times on the show where you won’t know who to root for, which is really what I loved about the Daredevil stories.” DeKnight added that he loved the morally ambiguous aspect of the comics as well and says they really explore it on the show.
Elden Henson who plays Pollux in the upcoming The Hunger Games: Mockingjay was in the middle of shooting that two-part movie when he found out they were looking for Franklin “Foggy” Nelson, so he shot his audition on his phone. They also came down to the wire in getting Woll from her last days of shooting “True Blood” to her first days of shooting “Daredevil.” The 29-year-old actress explained how she thought the most interesting characters are the ones who are flawed. When one of the producers said that Karen keeps getting into trouble, she responded, “No. Karen is trouble. She’s determined and when she decides she’s going to do something, there is nothing that will stop her.”
Loeb talked about the level of professionalism and charm and humor that Charlie Cox (previously on HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”) brings to the show and the tone on set, while also saying that he was Joe Quesada’s dream casting for the role of Murdock and Daredevil. “It’s been a real challenge,” Cox said about taking on the role, “Because there are so many aspects to Matt and we’re making a show about inner emotion and turmoil. It’s grounded in reality but there’s a superhero element so I think you’ll be pleased with it.

Loeb then set-up the fourth clip, which showed the day-to-day at the offices of Nelson and Murdock’s law firm. Foggy and Matt are sitting at a card table in a fairly minimalist, practically empty office as Karen brings out some kind of casserole, a special thank-you dinner. Karen says that it isn’t much but her mother gave her the recipe but to only serve it to her future husband. Foggy says that she really should be thanking the “nut in the mask” that saved her. She wanted to thank them because if it wasn’t for them she’d still be in “that cell” – no, we’re not sure what she’s referring to but maybe it has something to do with that object she took out of the vent. “Job’s easy when your client’s innocent. All you did was tell the truth,” Matt says humbly and Foggy adds that they’re still going to bill her once they figure out how to generate bills. Karen notes that they could use some help around the office, because it needs to be cleaned. The blind Matt jokes, “Is this place messy?” While she might not have any prior experience, she offers to work for free, so they hire her.
It’s a short scene but one thing that’s obvious is that Cox works more as Matt Murdock when you see him as a civilian wearing the dark sunglasses of a blind man.
Unlike some of the other panels, they actually had time to go to questions from the audience, including the first one asking the cast which comics they went back to learn more about their characters.
D’Onofrio said that after reading the first script and having conversations about “our Daredevil,” he realized that the Daredevil comics he read as a kid didn’t relate to it as much, so he went down to Forbidden Planet to pick up a stack of comics and that the artwork influenced him a lot.
Debra Woll was asked about transitioning from “True Blood” to “Daredevil” and Cox was asked a similar question about going from HBO to Netflix. “This is such a different character, so I had to change gears very quickly. I was a little sad about leaving that other family and I think coming here and being welcomed so generously into this new family really helped me through missing that character and that show.”
Cox mentioned that one thing that was interesting to him while reading the scripts was that because there isn’t a week in between shows, you don’t have to spend a lot of time reminding audiences of what happened before. He also mentioned that it’s pointless to end an episode with a cliffhanger since people can just click ahead to the next episode. “Which is great, because it means we get to spend more time telling the real story. I think more than anything else, it’s going to feel like a 13-hour movie,” he said, which the audience applauded. While Miller’s “Man Without Fear” had already been mentioned as a big influence on the show, Cox also liked the Bendis/Maleev series of comics, and on Netflix, they can make it a little darker to appease the slightly older fans of that run. He mentioned that he enjoyed some of the courtroom scenes in their books, and said we’ll see similar courtroom scenes done on the show.
Earlier in the panel, Loeb debunked the rumors that anyone has been cast for the roles of Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, in case you’ve heard some names floating out there in the internet ether. When Loeb was asked whether ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” would have any continuity with the Netflix shows, he responded, “That’s a Level 7 question. I think you know it’s all connected.”
Before ending the panel, Loeb mentioned that the first clip he showed was not the full sequence so he decided to show it again extending it a few minutes after what we saw to show what an epic fight Matt gets into in order to save Karen. So they showed the first clip once again, but this time, after Murdock and Karen’s attacker end up outside in the rain, it flashes back to Matt as a child when his father comes home and he’s reading a book (In braille–he’s already blind at that point). Matt says he’s tired but his father says he doesn’t want to mess up like his old man. “I never studied. Look what it got me.” He’s clearly pretty battered and bruised with blood dripping from his face. He takes Matt’s hand and puts it against his face for him to feel. Remembering this moment pushes Matt to get up, but the creep with the knife has also gotten his second wind and the fight resumes outside in the rain with a little slow motion thrown in for good measure. Matt is eventually on the ground with the other guy on top of him, choking him but he knocks him back with what may have been his billy club (but it was hard to tell in the rain). The guy picks up his knife and starts lunging at Matt, switching hands and plunging the knife into Matt, who hears a chain clanking against a fence, so he pushes his adversary up against the fence, wraps him in the chains and starts punching into unconsciousness.
We then see that Karen has come outside in the rain to watch the fight and after the assailant is finally down, Matt takes the mysterious object out of his pocket and tells her “I’ll get this into the right hands,” to which she responds, “You can’t take it to the police. You can’t trust anyone.”
Unfortunately we didn’t see any scenes of Owlsley and only the one scene of Kingpin with nothing between D’Onofrio and Cox, but that mysterious object obviously plays a big part in the story.
It was a fairly rich, hour-long panel giving those in attendance a lot of information about the show and it’s tone. The show doesn’t look like it will be anything even remotely comparable to the pretty awful 2003 movie where it will be a lot more grounded and less dependent on wirework and CG FX to tell the story, and the action will probably be more practical with martial arts and physical stunts. It seems very dark and gritty, again inspired very much by the art from the comic books
“Daredevil” will be released exclusively on Netflix in 2015.
