Daredevil star Charlie Cox explained why it doesn’t make sense for Marvel Studios to pick up where the Netflix series left off.
It’s no secret that Charlie Cox is back in the MCU as its Daredevil, and it’s also become clear that he will not be the same version we saw in the Netflix series. The same goes for Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin, who also recently made his return. During a recent appearance at the Middle East Film and Comic Con event in Abu Dhabi, the Daredevil star first admitted that he needs to be careful about what he says:
“I’ve learned it’s better not to speculate out loud in public because that then becomes a headline and then you set it you start to warp expectations and then it becomes a conversation of whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing, so I’ve learned to keep that to myself. I think it’s better when you allow the real creative force behind these shows to figure out what they think is best on their own rather than putting ideas in their heads. That’s my opinion so I’m not gonna speculate in any certainty, in any detail.”
Charlie Cox went on to defend the idea of rebooting Daredevil in the Marvel Cinematic Universe instead of continuing the events of the Netflix series:
“The only thing I would say is… I don’t think it’s… I don’t think it makes sense to pick up where we left off. I think… in keeping with a lot of things in the MCU right now, where there’s this kind of there’s this alternate reality, kind of thing going on. You know what they did in Spider-Man [No Way Home] and [Into the Spider-Verse]… so it’s a good moment to have this, you know, there’s been… a few years have passed, you know, and now I don’t know it’s Daredevil but maybe there’s it’s not quite… it’s reimagined. It’s slightly different. It’s… you know what I texted one of my friends when I found out this is all happening? ‘It’s born again.’ You know, so it’s like an homage to… so, you know, the sky’s the limit. Let’s see.”
