Vincent D’Onofrio has been tapped to play Daredevil‘s main villain on the new Netflix series, Marvel announced Tuesday.

The role was previously brought to life by the late Michael Clarke Duncan in the 2003 film that starred Ben Affleck as the titular hero. (Watch the movie now.)

Shooting on Daredevil is set to begin in July, and the 13-episode first season is slated to debut sometime next year. Spartacus creator Steven S. DeKnight was recently named the series’ showrunner.
