Marvel’s DAREDEVIL, which will premiere on Netflix next year, has cast another crucial piece of the puzzle.
The series has cast Scott Glenn as Stick, Matt Murdock’s sensei who mentors him into the role of Daredevil, along with mentors Elektra and others in the comics. In that universe, Stick also has some grievous enemies of his own, The Hand, who could possibly come into play during the series.
Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb had this to say about this casting choice:
“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. 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.”
