Like in the comics, Tower will be a New York City District Attorney in New York City who helps provide information to the nearly-blind superhero Daredevil (Matt Murdock) so that he can apprehend criminals.
In the comics, he also has strong relationships with Captain America and Misty Knight. And now that we know Misty Knight is being introduced into Netflix's Luke Cage we could see Rider in more than one Netflix series. As Marvel likes to say, 'It's all connected!'
Rider is best known for his roles in Lee Daniels' The Butler, Shameless and Safe House.
Marvel's Daredevil is here to clean up the streets of Hell's Kitchen, New York. Lawyer by day, street-level hero by night, Matt Murdock is on a mission to make his city a better place against an underground terror within the city.
Daredevil returns to Netflix for its second season in 2016.
