If you are a big fan of Netflix, but haven't found an original series on the streaming network to your liking, things may be changing. Netflix is set to produce an original show based on the Marvel Daredevil character that Ben Affleck brought to the big screen. That show will have 13 episodes and the main character has now been cast according to reports.

Daredevil will be played by Charlie Cox. Cox may be familiar to fans of the HBO series Boardwalk Empire where he was a regular for a few seasons. Cox will play lawyer Matt Murdock by day and crime fighter Daredevil by night. Cox is the first of the cast to be chosen for the series.

 

The official confirmation that Cox will be the lead character in the show is expected to come soon. Another thing that fans of Marvel and Netflix will like is that Daredevil won't be the first show that Netflix gets from Marvel. Other properties that Netflix has dibs on include Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage along with a miniseries called The Defenders.
