Marvel and Netflix are proud to announce that acclaimed actor Elden Henson has joined "Marvel’s Daredevil," an all-new 13-episode series premiering on Netflix in 2015.

With a diverse body of acclaimed work, including the “Hunger Games” and “Mighty Ducks” franchises, Elden Henson will play Foggy Nelson, Matt Murdock’s best friend and legal partner. In a town full of crime and corruption, Foggy's friendship to the community and passion for improving it have made him a friend to its many residents from all walks of life.

Henson joins Charlie Cox (previously announced as Matt Murdock), Vincent D’Onofrio (previously announced as Wilson Fisk) and Rosario Dawson in the critically-lauded cast of "Marvel’s Daredevil."

“Elden plays one of the most important characters in the world of 'Marvel’s Daredevil,' and we’re thrilled to see Foggy Nelson brought to life by such an incredibly talented actor,” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television. “He perfectly captures the heart and soul of this series, bringing an added resonance to Matt Murdock’s fight against the injustice in their great city.

"Marvel’s Daredevil" follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell's Kitchen, New York City.

Marvel’s first original series on Netflix is Executive Produced by series Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (“Spartacus”, “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer”, “Angel”) and Drew Goddard ("Cabin in the Woods," "Lost," "Buffy The Vampire Slayer", in addition to writing the first two episodes of Daredevil), along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Smallville,” “Heroes”).

"Marvel’s Daredevil" is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.

Foggy was played by Iron Man Director Jon Favreau in the 2003 movie

TheAbaryMan369 - 6/26/2014, 10:59 AM
Mighty Ducks is a good movie
themidnightking - 6/26/2014, 11:00 AM
Cool. Cool Cool Cool.
Phronesis - 6/26/2014, 11:00 AM
Hmmm, I see it.
JoJo1982 - 6/26/2014, 11:00 AM
When does this show start filming???
ALegendaryPanda - 6/26/2014, 11:01 AM
This is my most anticipated show after Flash and Gotham.
ALegendaryPanda - 6/26/2014, 11:02 AM
@Jojo

I might be wrong, but I think it starts filming early next year.
shabat - 6/26/2014, 11:03 AM
holy shit. I remember him from Mighty Ducks!
MARVELPSYCHO79 - 6/26/2014, 11:03 AM
I wonder how the Daredevil costume will look?!?!?!
EzioKenway1225 - 6/26/2014, 11:04 AM

MARVELPSYCHO79 - 6/26/2014, 11:05 AM
@JoJo and @Panda This show starts filming in July I think,or August.

Great cast so far. Growing up, Daredevil was my Batman, so hearing that the show is getting a VERY capable cast is so awesome. So ...we pretty much just need a Bullseye now?
NovaCorpsFan - 6/26/2014, 11:07 AM
He's certainly ugly enough. This cast is shaping up well.
yossarian - 6/26/2014, 11:07 AM
I found a way to make GL not suck.
mctrinket - 6/26/2014, 11:07 AM
Weird looking little dude.
MrMartinMarvel - 6/26/2014, 11:07 AM


He may look like a pig, but not bad.
EzioKenway1225 - 6/26/2014, 11:08 AM
i dont know if bullseye will be in this ,im still a little confused by this ,ok so is this show an the other three only 13 episodes and they will culminate into the defenders miniseries but will they have more episodes beyond it or will there just be 13 episodes,thats confusing me

JoJo1982 - 6/26/2014, 11:12 AM
@ezio

Bullseye has to be in this show, just as much as The Hand and Elektra too

I'm sure they will announce the actors for those characters pretty soon and a first look at daredevil costume
blackandyellow - 6/26/2014, 11:14 AM
Doesn't Foggy have cancer now? You're telling me nobody in the Marvel universe has figured out how to beat cancer? Even with Wolverine's healing ability nobody has figured out how to beat cancer?
JoJo1982 - 6/26/2014, 11:14 AM
@Omega
@Legendary
@MP79

Thanx guys, y'all are right July makes sense, since the show is set to come on netflix the first quarter of 2015
Pasto - 6/26/2014, 11:16 AM
Thats an ugly motha-[frick]a right there. Like a shaved ape.
MercwithMouth - 6/26/2014, 11:17 AM
He was good in Butterfly Effect, too.
TheLokey1 - 6/26/2014, 11:20 AM
I just want to know who Rosario Dawson is playing! Why won't they tell us!
charlie2094 - 6/26/2014, 11:22 AM
Not heard of him, but awesome, need Foggy! :D
FastFlames - 6/26/2014, 11:23 AM
I have a sinking feeling that this will feel less like a Marvel Movie and more like an Arrow type show. Which could be good, because I love Arrow, but I would much rather this be like a 13 Hour Marvel Movie than like half a season of Arrow...
