Charlie Cox Reveals Why He Hates Social Media

Charlie Cox has been making headlines since the ‘Save Daredevil’ campaign last year and showing up in a cameo as lawyer Matt Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home, as well. He was last seen as Daredevil in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. Charlie Cox’s Daredevil will finally be seen on the screens again as the superhero is getting his own MCU show.

Charlie Cox admits that he owes his career as Daredevil to the social media campaign of die-hard fans that did not give up on his character and eventually brought back the superhero. However, he refuses to have any social media presence citing the sole reason that he just does not know what to say to the fans.

Charlie Cox stated that while he loves his fans and is eternally grateful for the part they played in bringing back Matt Murdock AKA Daredevil, he will not be using social media anytime soon. The reason behind this is simply that Cox is an overall private person and having a social media presence for millions of people to see is not really his cup of tea.

“I don’t know what I would say to people I don’t know. I genuinely don’t. I’m not against it and obviously a lot of people tell me I should because it’s part of the industry, part of the world now. It’s not really my bag. I’m very private. Also, I have a big feeling like if it is not broken, don’t fix it and my life… I don’t get bothered.”

He also stated that even though he does not plan on creating an account on any of the social media apps just yet, there might be a time when he would want to go for it. He further added that he understands the benefits of social media and in no way is putting down people who enjoy their online presence.

The Kin actor admitted that he sometimes has “social media days” with Marvel and Netflix where he takes an hour or so to reply to fans’ tweets. Apart from this, Cox would rather do his own thing where he doesn’t have to worry about what people are doing.

Back in 2018, when Netflix canceled the original Daredevil after just three seasons, fans of the insanely popular show were not having it. They took to social media with the ‘Save Daredevil’ hashtag, urging Disney to bring the character back into the MCU. The fire subsided only when Kevin Feige announced that Cox will be returning as Daredevil, after all.

Matt Murdock’s cameo in Spider-Man: No Way Home had the fans letting out a breath of relief as the cameo gave them hope for a future Daredevil project. His cameo on She-Hulk: Attorney at Law was also very well received by the fans. With Daredevil: Born Again releasing soon, fans are thrilled to see more of the lawyer’s adventures.

Daredevil: Born Again will release on Disney Plus in the Spring of 2024.
