Daredevil on Netflix

The Netflix adaptation of Daredevil now has a lead: Charlie Cox. He played a stint as a gangster on Boardwalk Empire (pretty good show, check it out) and did a good job there, so he definitely has the presence. And as one blogger pointed out, he's not a house hold name, so does not come with any preconceived notions.

Daredevil is really a cool superhero, because he's not over the top. More like Batman used to be, before he went all Emo on us (though he might be goth, I can't remember the designations). And he's never been brought to life before really well (the movie was Okay). And honestly, like Green Arrow, the small screen is probably where he belongs.

Out in 2015, on Netflix.
