Charlie Cox’s Daredevil coming back to Netflix is a big feat in itself and still feels a little surreal. But dreams do come true, as has this one, and after all the chaos and ruckus, the all-time favorite Matt Murdock will finally be returning to the screens.
But as exciting as Daredevil’s comeback is, it has also left a trail of nervous questions in its wake, especially with regard to the character and plot of the new show. And it doesn’t help that Charlie Cox has stated that his character in the upcoming show is going to be different with quite a lot of changes because that only ends up sparking more curiosity instead of dousing any.
However. the actor has also shared some insight about the same, thereby leaving a fine trail of breadcrumbs about his character for fans to pick up.
Daredevil is apparently going to get upgraded
Recently, Charlie Cox shared some details about how the MCU’s Man Without Fear is going to get a little change of his own in Daredevil: Born Again. It was already conspicuous from the name itself that the series was going to portray many different aspects with regard to its storyline, but fans hadn’t anticipated that the same would be applied to Daredevil himself.
However, the English actor has confirmed that Matt Murdock is indeed about to be “upgraded.”
In one of his interviews with The Hollywood Reporter, Cox was inquired about whether or not Matt Murdock would be the same as he had been in Daredevil. Initially, Cox simply said he wasn’t aware of the subject because he hadn’t read the scripts yet.
But he gradually gave away some rather imperative information about it when he mentioned that there are indeed going to be “some differences.”
“Just by the fact that they’re using me as an actor to play the part, it’s clear that there are going to be some consistencies and there are also going to be some differences,” the Stardust actor said. “What they are and how we integrate the two is going to be the challenge of the new show,” he pointed out.
Charlie Cox indirectly asks fans to expect a variation in Daredevil
The She-Hulk: Attorney at Law talked briefly about change, and how Matt Murdock is going to be depicted in a different light, whether or not people like it. “These things are really complicated,” he observed. “And obviously, opinions are always divided.”
Cox said that he knew there were going to be mixed reactions to this new development, but he was willing to give it a shot regardless. “What people like is always varied,” he admitted. “But we have an opportunity to at least take what worked really well and then also add some cool elements, ideas, concepts, and themes that we weren’t able to do before.” He reassured fans that it is going to be Daredevil, but only an upgraded version of him.
Even though people are dying to know just what it is about their favorite superhero that is going to be changed in the new show, Cox is on a whole new level. He might’ve revealed that it was going to be “a new beginning” for Daredevil, but other than that, he’s more focused on just how thrilled he is to finally be back. And honestly, who can blame him?
More information is yet to be revealed about the same.
Daredevil: Born Again is set to release on Netflix in the Spring of 2024.
