“Dexter” star Michael C. Hall is rumored to be under consideration to play Matt Murdock in Marvel’s upcoming “Daredevil” TV series for Netflix.
The report comes from both the Marvel Cinematic Universe Facebook fan page and the Comic Book Cast podcast who say 43-year-old Hall is about the right age to play the blind Hell’s Kitchen lawyer-turned crime-fighting vigilante.
The report has not been confirmed by Marvel. The thirteen-episode series is one of four shows Marvel will produce for Netflix, culminating in “The Defenders” mini-series.
Hall stated earlier this year that he’s in no hurry to commit to another series right away after eight seasons of “Dexter”. Production on “Daredevil” is expected to begin in July for a 2015 airing.
