charlie cox daredevil marvelLadies and gentlemen (and Ben Affleck), meet Charlie Cox, your new Daredevil.

The "Stardust" (2007) and "Boardwalk Empire" actor will be the new face of the blind lawyer-by-day-superhero-by-night Matt Murdock in the streaming "Daredevil" Marvel-produced Netflix series due out next year.

The news comes amidst the news of former showrunner Drew Goddard exiting the series -- reportedly to take on "Sinister Six" directing duties -- and former "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" writer Steven S. DeKnight taking his place.

"Daredevil" is scheduled to begin filming this summer, with the 13-episode series debuting on Netflix some time in 2015.
