Marvel brought along the cast of Daredevil to New York Comic Con over the weekend, and they got to talk a bit about the show. They also debuted some of the first official photos of Charlie Cox as Daredevil (they also showed off some Con-only footage too).
In the pic above you can see Charlie as lawyer Matt Murdock. After the break, you can check out a pic of him in his first-gen costume.
Check out some more pictures and details about the show after the break…
THR notes that Rosario Dawson will be playing Claire Temple. The character has been romantically linked to Luke Cage in previous comic book stories, but it seems like her story is a bit different here. Jeph Loeb introduced her character as “a nurse who works at night”– which could be a reference to Night Nurse (Marvel ran that series briefly back in the ’70s, and it was about nurses working their night shifts in NYC hospitals while superheroes were out and about beating up bad guys). The first footage of Dawson shows her in character treating Matt Murdock after he takes a nasty fall. She’s apparently OK with Matt’s desire to stay masked, and she nicknames him “Mike” after a certain ex of hers who had a penchant for keeping secrets.
Four other stars were also introduced, as well: Ayelet Zurer who will be playing Vanessa Marianna, Vondie Curtis-Hall as Ben Urich, Bob Gunton as Leland “The Owl” Owlsley and lastly Toby Leonard Moore as Wesley.
Charlie Cox also mentioned the following about his role as Daredevil, which was transcribed by Deadline:
“It’s been a real challenge. There are so many aspects. There’s the blindness and physicality. Making a show is about human emotion, conflict and turmoil. When meeting a man who’s a lawyer by day and believes in law and justice and then a man by night is someone who takes the law into his own hands. He deals with battles dealing with that concept.”
And to round things out, here’s a bit of concept art by Joe Quesada.
