RESULTS: Who Would You Like To See Play Daredevil?

A little under 3000 of you voted for who you most want to see portray the Man Without Fear in the upcoming reboot from David Slade, and you can find the results here...

Follow Josh:
By Josh Wilding - 3/21/2011
Rather predictably, it was Dexter's Michael C. Hall who walked away with a HUGE majority of over 500 more votes than the actor who finished in second place. Who was that? Somewhat surprisingly, it was Star Trek star Chris Pine! Not too far behind him was Tron: Legacy's Garrett Hedlund. After that, there was very little difference between the rest of the contenders with only a few votes separating each of them. Here are the results in full. Thanks for voting!



Michael C. Hall

Do you agree with these results? With David Slade yesterday revealing that they're still nowhere near close to casting anyone, it sounds like it'll be a while until we find out! Be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place!

Hmm...Answers may vary. I'm seeing Michael C. Hall but at the same time I think that Chris pine needs to be a superhero. I was pulling for him to be Cap but again they went with the wrong choice....

Suprise, Suprise
Wildaniel - 3/21/2011, 12:28 PM
Dexter would be great!!!
homer4858 - 3/21/2011, 12:29 PM
i would kill to see dexter play dare devil. mike hall is terrific, and deserves to play a big role like this.
Illuminatus - 3/21/2011, 12:29 PM
The right contestant won.
fanboy76 - 3/21/2011, 12:30 PM
I still think Sharlto Copley from Ateam and District 9 could be a good DD.
IronicMan - 3/21/2011, 12:31 PM
What about Anthony Michael Hall?
He could recover from his experience with the Joker by wearing red spandex and playing with large rods.
marvel72 - 3/21/2011, 12:32 PM
who we want to see & who actually gets cast are two different things.

tell me once when fox has listened to the fans.
ElBeaster - 3/21/2011, 12:33 PM
FOX:
"Hmmm we know what actors would make the fans happy, so we'll sure as shit steer clear of those. Where's Zack Efron? MUAHAHAHAHA!"
capcyclopsftw - 3/21/2011, 12:37 PM
where's Intruder?
soberchimera - 3/21/2011, 12:37 PM
sgt. doakes just broke the news to MCH
Ceejay - 3/21/2011, 12:41 PM
None of the above, the perfect guy for the part is..


His name is Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and you'll be seeing him a lot in the new Game of Thrones TV adaptation playing Jamie Lannister.


But Hollywood being Hollywood always gotta go with a big name so we'll get a star-vehicle instead.
mtx100 - 3/21/2011, 12:43 PM
how bout jensen ackles? he has the look, is a decent actor and can kick ass convincingly. Or how bout Michael pitt? I have a feeling he would own the role
Mysterion - 3/21/2011, 12:47 PM
Josh Hartnett was on the list...really?
fanboy76 - 3/21/2011, 12:53 PM
@Ceejay. that guy looks like younger version of Arron Eckhart. I have always thought if Eckhart were younger he could totally pull DD off.
Sortis - 3/21/2011, 12:53 PM
Michael C Hall is 40...too old waaaay too old!
InfiniteMonkey - 3/21/2011, 12:54 PM
Zachary Quinto should do it. The bloke is cool like that.
luckylu - 3/21/2011, 1:00 PM
i honestly dont think that hall looks anything like murdock. not saying he would be terrible, but personally i would like someone with a little more resemblance.
JackSass - 3/21/2011, 1:05 PM
Yeeeeeaaaahhhh! Micheal C Hall FTW!!

That was my pick from WAY back.
CapFan79 - 3/21/2011, 1:06 PM
yossarian@ I agree. The names that pop up here are ridiculous. They all complain about the movies, but if they had their way these films would all suck more.

The most important thing here is a good script. Second a believable and accurate costumes for heores & villains. Then the actors need to pull it all off. I would be happy with Pine or Hedlund. I think most of you are fooling yourselves on Hall. Wishing wont make it so and getting your hopes up for something that wont happen just makes you bitter.

marvelguy - 3/21/2011, 1:06 PM
Pine would be great! Hall is just getting votes b/c "Dexter"'s popularity. Has he done anything that proves he can act beyond that role?
Ven0m - 3/21/2011, 1:10 PM
Michael Hall is perfect cast choice. Really hope Slade is listening to the fans and at minimum contacts Hall for a audition. Also Hall does look like Murdock what pictures are you looking at...

There is 200 of you twilosers that voted for Robert Pattinson... seriously... get off this website :(
TorturedXGenius - 3/21/2011, 1:20 PM
Hall is too old. plain and simple
ironpool007 - 3/21/2011, 1:28 PM
Here's 2 very different choices. Either Bradley Cooper or Aaron Eckhart.
Exiles - 3/21/2011, 1:32 PM
MCH would be great as Daredvil but realistically no studio wants (whether its fox or marvel studios) to pick a guy in his 40's to re start a possible franchise. So they'll probably go for some one younger like chris pine or hedlund who I honestly wouldn't have a problem with if MCH didn't get the role.
JoshJones - 3/21/2011, 1:39 PM
I voted for the fat kid from Good Burger. WHY ISN'T MY VOTE REPRESENTED UP THERE?
JoshJones - 3/21/2011, 1:40 PM
@Exiles
See: Iron Man
TDK21 - 3/21/2011, 1:41 PM
as much as I love Hall, hes a little too old for the role.
Exiles - 3/21/2011, 1:46 PM
@WadeWinstonWilson I have its a good movie. Yes RDJ was in his 40 or so I believe when he was cast Iron Man, the dude looks relatively young for a 40 year old. so fair play dude, but Fox picking MCH i just don't see that but hopefully I am wrong.
JosePetrelli12 - 3/21/2011, 1:50 PM
Michael C Hall.... FTW!!
TDK21 - 3/21/2011, 1:56 PM
Tony Stark was middle aged to begin with. He always has been an older character(ignore armored adventures) DD on the other hand is not, hes generally been portrayed in his late 20's maybe early 30's
themayer88 - 3/21/2011, 2:04 PM
Michael C. Hall would be a perfect Matt Murdoch/Daredevil

Who the hell actually voted for Robert Pattinson?!?!?
SageMode - 3/21/2011, 2:08 PM
Blah Blah Blah. lol
Spyder3355 - 3/21/2011, 2:14 PM
of the choices, he is def the best. from 6 feet under and dexter to gamer(which was an awful movie, but he did a great job playing the role he was dealt), he can obviously change his style and personality.
yankeemanf - 3/21/2011, 2:15 PM
i like michael c. hall as daredevil like 5-6 years ago but now not so much he is too old soo i think chris pine would be better
dcoctavarium - 3/21/2011, 2:36 PM
Don't be jelly people. MCH is just a pump like that.
113 - 3/21/2011, 2:38 PM
I voted for Michael C. Hall...glad other people saw the same thing i did. He's the perfect Matt Murdock
wolf1 - 3/21/2011, 2:50 PM
I see a guy that just got out off law school, and start off fighting then getting the suit.

MaddMonkk - 3/21/2011, 3:22 PM
Hall isn't too old to do it if it's done within the next year or so. A lot of actors are older than what they appear to be. I think he's perfect. He plays a forensic officer/serial killer in DEXTER and is able to get out of every jam due to his intelligence. He has that look and we all know it. Perfect casting for Daredevil. Jason Statham is a pretty good chioce for Bullseye if they decide to use him again (i hope not though, not right away.)
I want to see PUNISHER in this story against DD, but it will never happen.
