Earlier today, at the Television Critics Association (TCA), Netflix officially announced the premiere date for the upcoming series, “Marvel’s Daredevil.” Turns out the premiere date is earlier than anticipated which is good news for fans. The 13 episode first season will debut on Friday, April 10th and as it is a Netflix Original Series, all the episodes will be available immediately.

“Boardwalk Empire” star Charlie Cox stars in the series as Matt Murdock/Daredevil. He is joined Rosario Dawson, Vincent D’Onofrio, Deborah Ann Woll and Elden Henson. Blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, 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.

Steven S. DeKnight is serving as showrunner. Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”) and Drew Goddard (Cabin In The Woods) are the executive producers, alongside DeKnight.

Owen Sleater, or you might know him by his mortal name Charlie Cox, will now be the next Daredevil! According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, Cox will star as Matt Murdock, the blind lawyer by day and crime-fighting hero by night on the Netflix and Marvel produced drama.

Cox becomes the first person cast in the drama series based on the Marvel Entertainment comics of the same name. Netflix picked up “Daredevil “– as well as “Jessica Jones,” “Iron Fist,” and “Luke Cage” and miniseries “The Defenders” — in a massive pact with Marvel. 

“Daredevil” will be 13 episodes for season one. Steven S. DeKnight will now oversee the show and Drew Goddard will serve as executive producer and consultant.

Marvel and Netflix declined comment on Cox’s casting. Official confirmation is expected to come shortly.
