Charlie Cox reveals problems in wearing the Daredevil suit

However, it was not the only problem with the costume, even after it was improvised. He explained:

“The only difficulty with the suit itself is when we film in the winter it gets very cold because it’s kind of plasticy, it’s kind of more like the material, and so that takes on the temperature of the outside. And so there would be nights when we’d be on a rooftop at 3 AM and it was very cold.”

Daredevil is streaming on Disney+. Daredevil: Born Again is set to come out in 2024.

“I got there. They put me in Val Kilmer’s suit. It didn’t even fit properly, and I stood in it and I went ‘I feel like an idiot.’ What kind of guy walks around, dressed like a bat? And is then going to go ‘Hello, how are you? Just ignore that I’m dressed as a bat.’ Of course, he’s meant to be doing this. If you look at the history of the guy and the pain that he went through. I went ‘I can’t do this in a normal voice. I have to become a beast in order to sell this to myself.'”
