Marvel and Netflix’s upcoming television series Daredevil, has added a new member to the cast today. Scott Glenn has been brought aboard the series to play Matt Murdock’s mentor, Stick. The character originally debuted during Frank Miller’s seminal run on Daredevil. We have to say in our minds, likeness wise, there has not been a better casting choice since Patrick Stewart was cast as Professor Xavier!
“Stick is one of the most important figures in Matt Murdock’s life and Scott Glenn embodies all the qualities of someone so integral to this hero’s journey,” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television. “There are few actors who could bring such the authenticity, gravitas and charisma to such a key role in Matt’s journey to become the super hero we call Daredevil.”
Expect Daredevil to debut May 2015. We should hear much more during New York Comic Con about the series, so stay tuned!
