Speaking at the Middle East Film & Comic Con 2022 in Abu Dhabi, Cox said he didn't watch the 'Daredevil' movie, which starred Ben Affleck, until after he got the role in the TV series.
"I watched it once, and then I wanted to go and do my own thing," Cox said at the event. "I hadn’t seen it before I got the role."
Cox gave credit to Affleck, saying he did "a really good Matt Murdock". But he didn't go as far as to say he enjoyed the entire experience. "I don't love the movie. I feel like it tried to do too much and it was a little tonally confused."
"They had everyone in that movie. They had Kingpin, they had Bullseye, they had Elektra, they had Karen Page, they had Foggy," Cox continued. "It was saturated, and it's two hours. So that was part of that problem. And the suit sucks!"
Affleck himself has been a critic of the movie, which came out in 2003. A few years back he told Entertainment Weekly, "If I wanted to go viral I would be less polite," he said after saying the film "didn't work at all."
He added, "That was before people realized you could make these movies and make them well. There was a cynical sense of 'Put a red leather outfit on a guy, have him run around, hunt some bad guys, and cash the check.'"
Cox starred in three seasons of 'Daredevil' which was, at the time, a Netflix series. He then reprised his role in 'Spider Man: No Way Home'. Since then, the show has moved home to Disney+ and there have been multiple rumours of new 'Daredevil' projects coming down the line.
Cox has been at the forefront of these rumours, teasing last month "I know something. I don't know much, but I know there will be something else."
The Marvel star also said a new series or film should pick up "a few years" after the events of the original series.
With the wheels very much in motion, we'll hopefully be getting some news of an upcoming project soon.
