Charlie Cox Talks Daredevil’s Cancellation And His Future In The Role

While we’re still reeling from Daredevil‘s cancellation, the show’s star is also feeling the same way.

Netflix chose to cancel the show due to Marvel’s preparations for. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly,Cox admits how he felt upon learning of the show’s axing.

“A lot of us really expected to keep going, and I certainly did,” Cox says. “The truth is, I felt like we had a lot of stories to tell, and although I understand, I’m very saddened by that.

Right now, Daredevil’s future in the MCU is unknown. Disney+ has no plans to revive the show. Since the series was a Netflix production, this might be why the streaming service won’t pick it up. The Disney+ service intends on showcasing family-friendly content. If Daredevil returns, it might be in a different show. Or even a movie.

The question is will Cox be up for a return to Daredevil? As the actor says, “I don’t know how this would happen, but maybe one day we could pick up the baton and do it again.”

“It’s just how business works. But also, these characters mean a lot to people. It’s weird to think there’s a chance I won’t be playing Matt Murdock ever again. That’s a bizarre feeling, because that character has been such a huge part of my life for the last four and a half years.”

Keep in mind, Cox has a clause in his Marvel contract that states he will play Daredevil in a film. Presumably, that is his best bet to show up in the MCU movies. Having such a clause would prevent the role from being recast.

“Playing lawyer Matt (by day) and the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen (by night) was a “dream job.” I loved it,” he says. “It’s been just the most incredible job for me. It’s so fun to do. You get to do all the acting obviously, which is great, but then there’s also this really fun physical aspect to it with all the stunts and the fight choreography.”

Season Three ends on a positive note. Wilson Fisk goes to prison for life, while Matt reunites with Foggy Nelson and Karen Page. The trio begin preparing their new law firm- Nelson, Murdock & Page. Meanwhile, Vanessa Fisk is free and alive. As for Benjamin Poindexter, the man known as Bullseye is deeply wounded, but he receives a new spine in the hospital. Evidently, this post-credit scene implies he will rise again.

As for what Season Four would be like? The show runner says the writers when Netflix gave them the axe. Needless to say, Cox will not talk about the planning stages.

“I hate to be boring, but to be honest, I don’t think I should answer that,” he explains. “It’s so new, the news. It’s quite painful for quite a lot of people. I was really excited about the ideas that were talked about for season 4, and I think if I was to speculate about it and it went on the internet, it might not be very helpful to people.… Anything I say often gets picked up and circulated, and I just want to make sure I don’t give any false hope.”

DaredevilSeason 3 is now on Netflix.
