The Man Without Fear
In Hells Kitchen, a blind lawyer named Matt Murdock who moonlights as the masked vigilante, Daredevil, faces for the first time the Kingpin of crime and his top assassin, Bullseye. While trying to maintain a healthy relationship with his daytime lover, Karen Page, and his best friend, Foggy Nelson, Murdock must attempt to take down his foes in both the courtroom and the crime filled streets.


The Man Without Fear: Elektra
Murdock's relationship with Karen becomes strained when a former lover of his, Elektra Natchios, returns from a long absence over seas. Not aware of Murdock's alter-ego, the deadly Elektra joins Kingpin as a replacement for the now imprisoned Bullseye. An attraction reignites, but Elektra's choice of employer leaves a rift between her and her old flame.


The Man Without Fear: Hells Kitchen
A now drug addicted Karen reveals Daredevil's identity to the Kingpin, putting all of Murdock's loved ones in danger. The now escaped and even more crazed Bullseye seeks to take revenge on both his replacement and the devil that locked him up in the first place. Conflicts are now personal, and of the four combatants, only one will come out alive.



Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy my fancast for The Man Without Fear Trilogy:



Refn has more than proven himself as a director through films such as Drive and Bronson. These films both showcased his style, one that is ideal for an adaptation of Daredevil. If anyone deserves a shot at the charater, it's Nicolas Winding Refn.



Daredevil/Matt Murdock is a very hard part to cast. I discovered that many of my original choices were either too old (Guy Pearce), or far too young (Wilson Bethel). I finally settled on the excellent and underrated actor Lee Pace. Pace has the ability the convey a dark presence, as needed for Daredevil, while also being able to portray a genuinely likeable guy, for Murdock. Pace could play this part to a T, and give a truly memorable performance.



For Karen someone is needed who can play a sweet, innocent girlfriend, and also be able to turn into a heroin addicted porn actress. Guillory could give us both. She fits the role much better than her often suggested counterparts.



Foggy needs to be played by someone who can provide comic relief in the midst of a dark story. That person is Jason Segel. One of the best comedic actors working today, Segel also has a not often showcased talent for serious situations. His character would really ground Matt Murdock as a person.



Norman Reedus is my one and only choice for Bullseye. His talent as an actor is very under-appreciated. Reedus can play very serious, and very violent. He would nail the sadistic, murder happy Bullseye.



Noomi Rapace has more than proven her acting skills. And with her recent recognition by American audiences, it would not be surprising if she appeared in a superhero film soon. Elektra is the character for her. Her look and acting ability would really favor the character.



Although most often recognized as a comedic actor, Serafinowicz has a voice and stature to suit Kingpin. At six foot five, the voice of Darth Maul himself would be a powerful antagonist to the series. A fat suit would have to be used to thicken Serafinowicz out, but other than that he is set to become another memorable villain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

I think this is a pretty good cast!

~Based off looks, your Daredevil pick is pretty good!
I have never seen him act, though.
I will look into his stuff, for sure!

~Fantastic Karen pick!
Sienna is a fantastic actress! She has the perfect look for the role, and is a great age as well.

~Good Foggy...Not original, but it totally works!
He is great in How I Met Your Mother!

~Nice Bullseye!
He is great in the Walking Dead!
He can pull off the attitude, he would just need some training! Plus, he looks creepy as hell.

~I like Noomi, as an actress...She is great!
But, I don't see her working as Elektra, I am sorry to say...She does have the olive/greek skin tone, but her face is not right for the role...She look much older than she is to me.

My personal pick is Erin Cummings.
It is original as well!



She was a fan choice for Wonder Woman, but I always felt she would be a much better Elektra..Plus, she is of greek descent!

~Based off looks, your Kingpin pick is great!
I have never seen him act though!
Nice.

Great cast overall...I would try adding more characters, if I were you!

Keep it up!

- I'm not too big a follower on Lee Pace, so I can't tell if he'd be perfect for Daredevil. Of course, I can't suggest Michael C. Hall, because it's too cliched. It's not a bad choice, but did Lee do any dark film.
- I only remember Sienna as Jill Valentine from Resident Evil: Apocalypse. Still, she's rocking blonde locks!
- Jason Segel might be too tall for the role (he stands at 6'4", while Foggy stands at 5'9" or 5'10". He'd be perfect, though.
- Ooh, I kinda feel Norman for Bullseye. He played very hyper angry in The Walking Dead. And he was a killer in The Boondock Saints. Highly approve of it. My personal picks, however, are Jason Statham or Jude Law (the latter has a big grin like Bullseye).
- I think you did good with your choice for Elektra. She's even got an "Eastern European" look. Funny how I just knew she knows kickboxing from MrBlueSky. Thumbs up.
- Hmm, Darth Maul as Kingpin? Well, he's got the 6'5" frame going for him, so I'll gladly toast you one.

Overall, a strong cast. And like tweeeeenkies3 said, look to add more characters, unless this is who's appearing in the trilogy.

And check out my casts when you get to it.

- Blade the Vampire Slayer
- Doctor Strange: Sorceror Supreme
- X-Men Reboot Preview
- Gears of War

Nice Fancast!!

@tweeeeenkies3 what's up w/ your X-men fancast? everytime I try to check it out I end up on YouTube. oh well I'm sure it's cool...
tweeeeenkies3 - 1/26/2012, 5:54 PM
@nowtheresaBATman...I have no clue....No one else has had a problem...
That is really strange!
MrBlueSky - 1/26/2012, 6:50 PM
Sweet cats, man. I have Pace in my upcoming Hulk cast.
starsofwar - 1/26/2012, 7:23 PM
Nice cast......I always thought Pace would be a good Riddler......never thought of him as Daredevil but he's a great actor so I could see it.
Jolt17 - 1/27/2012, 12:26 AM
I've never seen Lee Pace, but he looks good. And wow, Norman Reedus for Bullseye...he's my top pick for Green Arrow, but Bullseye can surely work perfectly, too. Jason Segel as Foggy is also interesting. The rest are quite nice. Great job! :)
StockersBlahBlah - 1/27/2012, 5:26 AM
Pretty good cast, but sadly all unknown to me...Noomi's husband, I believe, has been involved with a recent superhero film to..

My favourite thing about Serafinowicz is he voiced Darth Maul :3
FrankGarret - 1/27/2012, 7:43 AM
Much approved.
whoa123 - 1/27/2012, 8:12 AM
Sweet cast man especially your pick for Daredevil.
axelbratoski - 1/27/2012, 8:23 AM
I loved this cast! All your choices are great!

-I had Lee Pace as Mr Fantastic but I can see him working as DD.
-Noomi and Norman are great and really original. Sienna as Karen works, too.
-I previously had Segel as Foggy, too, it's a great pic!
- I wasn't so sure about Serafinowicz, but he is an acomplished actor with a good voice, so it's growing on me.

A++

I have never seen Lee Pace act but he looks kinda like Daredevil. I think Ryan Gosling would be great as DD.

Norman Reedus would be awesome as Bullseye.

I don't see Noomi Rapace as Elektra. I like Stana Katic for the role.

I have only seen your Kingpin choice act in Shaun of the dead, I don't know how great he would be as Kingpin.
My pick is still John Goodman, I think he is the best choice for the role.

the rest are good.
TheSoulEater - 1/27/2012, 12:39 PM
Your elektra, BULLSEYE, and Kingpin choices, are off the fricking CHAIN
breakneckbeck - 2/9/2012, 11:46 PM
I think your Bullseye is my favorite pick ever, Norman is great at doing the angry badass thing and can totally handle the psychotic act. He's Perfect!!!!
