Just like the rest of us, Charlie Cox is disappointed Daredevil won't be returning.
A week after 'Daredevil' was pulled from Netflix's future plans, the actor who played Matt Murdock for three seasons (and one 'The Defenders' season) has spoken out about the Marvel series' cancellation.
Cox, who first donned the vigilante's mask in 2015, and was the launch of Netflix's heroes on the streets, has said he is "very saddened" that 'Daredevil' will not be returning.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Cox told them how much the news caught him and the rest of the team by surprise. He said, "A lot of us really expected to keep going, and I certainly did. The truth is, I felt like we had a lot of stories to tell, and although I understand [the cancellation], I’m very saddened by that."
The actor continued, speaking on how much playing Matt Murdock meant to him. He said, "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."
Cox was then asked about what would have been, if a season four had been granted by Netflix. He said, "I was really excited about the ideas that were talked about for season four, 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."
Finally, when asked if he would want to play as Daredevil again in the future, his answer was "Oh my God, yeah. I don’t know how this would happen, but maybe one day we could pick up the baton and do it again."
Hmmmm. Could we ever see a rebirth of 'Daredevil'? Not likely on Netflix at any rate. We also expect when the third season of 'Jessica Jones' arrives in 2019, it will face the same fate.
