Even though there was a flurry of Ant-Man related stories over the weekend, the big news today is the announcement that Marvel has found its Daredevil for the Netflix series… or has it.

Though sources at Variety are claiming it is so, Marvel Studios has yet to confirm the news, so we’re marking this up as a rumor until further news breaks on the matter.

Now on with the bit you’ve been waiting for:

Charlie Cox has been cast to play Matt Murdock/Daredevil in the upcoming series, that has fans excited to see what Marvel Studios will do with a series that doesn’t have to run through the censors of network television in order to get made.  Most of us have seen Mr. Cox in the HBO series “Boardwalk Empire”, though a few of you may remember him from a little movie called Stardust…

In addition to the casting of Mr. Cox, Steven S. DeKnight has been signed to be the showrunner for the series.

    I was hoping Stick and the Chaste with the hand appear on the television series. If Stick is to appear Arnold Schwarzenegger could guest star. I pick him for Stick in Daredevil movies. He has brown hair. That would be cool to have Arnold Schwarzenegger in Marvel movies or television shows. He played Mr. Freeze in a Batman film.
