Ending on a high note, the third season of Netflix’s Daredevil was a tremendous success for Marvel, owing to the gritty storyline and outstanding cast. This upcoming new series has a lot of expectations to live up to, and Cox himself revealed that Disney is working hard to make it even better than the original.

Daredevil Star Charlie Cox Is Prepping To Get Back Into Character

Charlie Cox spoke to GQ Magazine and explained the one major change that Disney will implement on the show. The actor also revealed the preparations he has been doing to seamlessly get back into his Daredevil character again:

I’m now in the process of preparing for next year when we shoot the show: I’ve re-reading the comics from start to finish, and I’m just starting to try to get back into shape for a role like that.”

The Daredevil actor admitted that he was not fond of the comics before he engaged in the show in 2015. He ultimately became a fan, and now, he is reading the entire Daredevil comic book run. Cox also shared that he found some familiar scenes in the comics that they filmed years ago, which was amusing to the actor.

Daredevil: Born Again will be composed of 18 episodes for its first season, and when asked what scenes he thinks these will consist of, he answered:

I think because of the number of episodes they’ve committed to, there’ll be a heavy influence of courtroom stuff—Matt Murdock, the lawyer in the new show. So I’m heavily focused on researching that area of this character and his life.”

Cox also added that this part of Matt Murdock’s life was not entirely explored in the Netflix series. The actor also confessed he needs to work on his accent. Because it has been a long time since he garbed himself in the red suit, Cox began thinking of the upcoming project as a “first-time job” that he wants to recommit himself.
