5 Actors who Could Play DAREDEVIL in Netflix’s TV Series


Netflix and Marvel recently unveiled their plans to create a number of 13-episode series’ featuring Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, culminating in The Defenders (further details can be found in the full press release by clicking here). The question now is which actors will be chosen to portray these iconic characters; will they go for young unknowns – similar to Stephen Amell in Arrow – or will Nexflix bring big names to these as they’ve done with shows like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black? We don’t know at this point, but here are five casting suggestions featuring actors you will without a doubt recognise, for Daredevil! Stay tuned as we’ll be bringing you similar lists for the other heroes listed above in the coming days too.

Have a read of who we think could play the chacacter of Luke Cage right here.


5. Michael C. Hall


Michael C. Hall has been a fan favourite choice to play Daredevil for years now, and it’s no surprise after his incredible performance in Dexter these past few years. Some may dismiss the Six Feet Under star as too old considering the fact that he is now 42, but it’s hard to think of a more suitable actor for this role should Marvel and Netflix decide to go with a seasoned and battle-hardened version of The Man Without Fear. At his core, Matt Murdock is a man constantly battling his demons, something Hall knows plenty about after portraying the layered and complex serial killer Dexter Morgan for eight years in Dexter. Close your eyes and it’s not in the least bit difficult to picture the Golden Globe winning actor as both the blind lawyer and viscous vigilante dealing out justice in the streets of Hell’s Kitchen outside of the courtroom at night.

    Simon Baker. That is all.

  • Bam504

    Your choices suck. -_-

  • Jeff

    Oh wow Richard Madden and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. I’m surprised Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul aren’t on this list.

  • MutinyofSense

    Aaron Eckhart would be perfect

  • Barb Kas

    nope none of them suits the part, i like damian since band of brothers but daredevil simply does’nt suit him, in my opinion jensen ackles suit’s better as daredevil & it would be a good chalenge for him cause matt/daredevil is an interesting character to work through like he did with dean giving him heart & soul

  • Bledderblabla

    The only good pick would be Micheal C. Hall on this list and maybe Damian Lewis. That guy from game of thrones is nothing special. Many actors on GoT are overhyped and I’m a GoT fan.

  • Shane King

    Richard Madden is THE pick!! He’ll brign out so much depth in this role. Yes yes yes to Madden only!!

  • Eric m.

    The logical choice to play daredevil is Liam McIntyre of spartacus!!
