Marvel has released the first official pictures of Charlie Cox as Daredevil at the close of Netflix’s Daredevil panel at New York Comic Con. The series, exclusive to Netflix, will be the first of five series Marvel is bringing to the online streaming giant. The other four series will focus on Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders.
The first image features Cox in what Marvel calls the “first costume” for the iconic blind hero. The outfit is inspired by Frank Miller and John Romita, Jr.’s Daredevil: The Man Without Fear series.
The panel also confirmed the announcements of new cast members – Ayelet Zurer, as art dealer Vanessa Marianna who will be the love interest of Wilson Fisk, Vondie Curtis Hall as Daily Bugle journalist Ben Urich, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple aka Night Nurse, Toby Leonard Moore as Wilson Fisk’s right-hand man Wesley, and Bob Gunton as Leland Owlsley. They will be joining Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, and Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk, Kingpin.
Stayed tuned later this week for more Daredevil news as we detail the clips shown at the panel!
“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.
