Charlie Cox Talks DAREDEVIL's Red Suit, Favorite Comics, Joining THE AVENGERS, And More

Taking part in a reddit AMA earlier today, Daredevil star Charlie Cox has talked more about playing The Man Without Fear, teasing the iconic red costume, which characters he hopes to see in season two, the chances of joining The Avengers, and more!

Talking in a reddit AMA earlier today alongside co-star Vincent D'Onofrio, Charlie Cox dropped some very interesting hints about what's to come in the highly anticipated Marvel/Netflix series. For starters, he once again confirmed that fans will get to see the classic red suit (or at least a version of it). "I love both of the suits," he told one fan. "Obviously it was great to involve the John Romita Jr. black ninja costume but the day I first put on the iconic costume is a day I will never forget." Despite the dark and realistic tone, Daredevil will obviously embrace the comic books to some extent then, something Cox hopes to see reflected through the introduction of certain villains in the near future. "I have no idea if it could ever work in our show but I would love to see Stilt Man make an entrance. Maybe even Jester." That would be a lot of fun!

Talk then turned to the comic books, with the British actor quizzed on which he read to prepare for the role of Matt Murdock in the drama which is so far receiving widespread critical acclaim. "I really love the issues when Matt Murdock is defending the White Tiger. It was so cool to read a comic book with such a compelling courtroom scene. I also have to mention Jeph Loeb's Daredevil Yellow. So touching." He added: "The greater part of my preparation was spent reading comics. I think you will find influence from many of the DD writers and illustrators over the years. Personally, I found Bendis/Maleev runs incredibly helpful in terms of the tone of our show." Cox is clearly well prepared then, something which is reflected in the names he dropped when asked about who some of his favourites are now. What are the chances some of these characters appear? "Since I got cast in the role, I have read hundreds of comics. There are so many great characters but some of my favorites are the following: The Punisher, The Purple Man, and Thor."


Inevitably, questions were asked about the fact that Daredevil takes place within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Cox had this to say when asked about which superhero he would most like to tem up with. "I really think Chris Evans does an amazing job as Captain America and I happen to think him and Daredevil would work well together." Oh, and he's still waiting on an invite for Captain America: Civil War and/or Avengers: Infinity War! "I have no idea if this is even a possibility but I can tell you that I would love nothing more. I don't see why the character from our show couldn't fit in with the Avengers, if he was invited ;)" Let's make it happen Marvel...
