Was the first attempt at making the Marvel comic Daredevil into a movie a giant catastrophe? Um…probably. But that’s not stopping Netflix from jumping on board the comic book hero train that’s absolutely owning the entertainment market. Netflix will team up with Marvel to produce a series based off the popular comic book Daredevil. Hopefully the different style and venue will bring a successful makeover to the hero.
As the series gets closer to production one huge name has officially joined the cast in a ‘critical’ role: Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Alexander)! On Marvel’s website Joseph Loeb, head of Marvel’s television department, said, “Rosario Dawson is one the most charismatic, talented and powerful actresses in Hollywood, so she was always at the top of our list for ‘Marvel’s Daredevil.’ Her role in the series is absolutely critical to Matt Murdock’s journey to become the hero we know as Daredevil.”
High praise for the actress. Yet another great find for the Marvel franchise and their domination of the comic book hero to film genre.
The new series is set to air sometime in 2015 on Netflix.
