Charlie Cox will play blind superhero in 13-episode series
Cox will play Matt Murdock, the blind lawyer who moonlights as a superhero with heightened senses.
“Daredevil” received a new showrunner last week in Starz's “Spartacus” creator Steven S. DeKnight, who is taking over for Drew Goddard.
Goddard, who wrote the first two episodes of the series and will remain an executive producer, is shifting focus to write Sony's “Amazing Spider-Man” spinoff, “The Sinister Six.”
Cox played hitman Owen Slater on HBO's “Boardwalk Empire” and also appears in the upcoming Stephen Hawking biopic, “Theory of Everything.” Cox is represented by Brandt Joel at WME.
