So excited to hear this! Best of the Netflix shows, with Punisher a distant second IMHO.

Charlie Cox is 39- it's not going to too long before he is too old to play the character. Andrew Garfield recently mentioned at an interview feeling like he was too old to play Spider-Man now.

RDJ was 43 when he debuted as Iron Man. Went a strong 12 years playing the character. I think Marvel Studios can eek a couple years out of Charlie.

Yeah, not worried about Charlie’s age based on the points above. I also want Wilson Bethel back as Bullseye.

39 is nearing on 'too old' to play an adult character? My sweet beardy Jesus that's certainly an interesting bad take.

I'm hoping this is as good as the Netflix series. Unfortunately, I think the current Disney+ format is going to hurt it. The 6 episode seasons have given us poor pacing for most of these shows, at least in my opinion.

I think Daredevil might survive better, depending on what they try to do with it. In my opinion, at least, a major factor in the poor pacing for D+ shows is that they're not just trying to tell a story, they're trying to set up a bunch of new stories and cameos and all that other (admittedly, often fun) stuff. So you're 4 episodes in to a 6 episode show and still meeting new characters and the entire plot of the show isn't quite even totally revealed yet. Or whatever the case.

If Daredevil tries to work off what -exists- and tell a single story, it could be really tightly paced and direct. If they try to use Daredevil as a vehicle to introduce 13 more characters that may or may not appear in other shows or movies.. well. That could make it a lot messier.

Neither character does be participating in parkour along tall buildings or engaging in unarmed combat with ninjas.

Naw, they're just jumping through keyholes while shrinking and falling out of buildings with armor flying after them.

Do you think Tom Holland does everything a spider can?

And the reference to the 39yr old age was more to Cox playing the character still in 10-15 years time rather than now.
