Charlie Cox on the cancellation of Daredevil
Daredevil is also up for a reboot. However, Charlie Cox was quite saddened when the show got cancelled. If Marvel ever plans to reboot the show, It is not sure whether or not Charlie Cox will come back to play the role of Matt. He said this in an interview with Entertainment Tonight:
“A lot of us really expected to keep going, and I certainly did,” he tells EW. “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.
“It’s just how business works,” he continues. “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.”Playing lawyer Matt (by day) and the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen (by night) was a “dream job,” “I loved it,” he confessed. “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.”
It must be an emotional trauma for Charlie that he had to say goodbye to the character he liked the most. Krysten Ritter is also excited for the future of Jessica Jones. Even though the show is canceled. She would love to play the character someday.. According to her, the character meant a lot to her.
