Netflix and Marvel's DAREDEVIL Series to Take Place in Modern Day, Not in the 70s

Marvel has found The Man Without Fear. Broadwalk Empire and Stardust actor Charlie Cox has been cast as Matt Murdock/Daredevil in the new Marvel and Netflix series Daredevil.

Rumors have been going around claiming that the series might take place in the 1970s but Marvel's official synopsis of Daredevil debunked that rumor.

"Blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt 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."

Set to begin production in New York City this summer, Daredevil is set to air its entire 13 episode series in Netflix sometime in 2015. Stay tuned as more casting information for Daredevil will be coming very soon now that Cox has been cast in the lead role.
